Luck??? You can find any superstition that supports or goes against almost anything you do.  If you trust luck to keep your ring from falling off of your finger, then you don’t need to worry about it!!! Luck only comes to those who have done the preparation.

I say go ahead and wear them!  If you read my post about superstition and luck… then you can see that I think most of it is crap!  Wear your pretty rings 🙂

Maybe if you’re uncomfortable wearing them, you could just bring them and try them on for a few hours one day that you’re there. Remember that planes can make you swell up pretty bad, so the flight over might not be the best time to guage whether they’re a good fit.

You’re always going to have the problem that your ring fits differently in hot and cold weather.  One way to fix that is to go with a size that fits snugly but comfortably in summer, and have the jeweler put "ring bumps" on the inside of the band.  The bumps make it so that you have to line the ring up properly to get it over your knuckle, so that if it is a little looser in cold weather you are less likely to lose the ring.  They also help to keep it from turning on your finger.
