Is my ring to small?

It looks fine to me, it’s supposed to be a little snug when it’s warm out. Your ring is supposed to fit best when it’s coldest so you don’t risk it falling off in the winter

That’s what mine looks like on me and I couldn’t have it any bigger because my knuckles are narrower than the base of my finger. I would just go by whether it’s comfortable tbh. Looks fine to me though.

In my opinion, it’s all about how you want to wear your jewelery. That looks way too tight for ME, and it would drive me crazy. But I also wear a 7 where I could easily fit into a 6.5. It gives me anxiety thinking one day I could swell and not be able to get the ring off. Essentially, if you’re comfortable and like how it fits, that’s what matters.

It doesn’t look too tight at all to me! Mine ring does the same especially in the summer. If your comfortable I wouldn’t change it.

It does look snug but in the winter it will be looser so I don’t think you’d want to go any bigger.

When you get a wedding band it may be too tight. My true ring size is like 3.5/3.75 but I have my rings at size 4 so when I add wedding bands they don’t fit too snug. My e-ring alone is a tad loose when I’m cold, but it only spins then – it doesn’t come off.

I have a mark when I take my ring off sometimes, so the mark doesn’t make it look too tight.. Just keep in mind when you add bands, it could be uncomfortable.

It looks just fine to me if you plan on only wearing the E ring! I have a 7.5 as well but wear a 7 1/4 and my finger looks just like that in the summer with my set on, then the ring is a little bigger in the winter, it’s supposed to fit snug but be able to move around without sliding off. yours will fit a little more snug with another band added, so I would suggest trying to wear another ring with it and seeing if it’s tolerable or too tight, and maybe going up 1/4 in size

This looks fine to me. I also have a groove on my finger after I had sizing bumps put into my loose size 4 e-ring to bring it down to 3.75. To compensate for my snugger e-ring, my wedding ring will be size 4.

Tightness should only really be concerning if it is uncomfortable or cutting off the blood supply to your finger. It is quite natural for wedding and e-rings to create a groove or mark after wearing them for a while.

I think it’s fine for summer! My fingers change size pretty drastically from winter to summer; if I left my ring loose during the summer it would be falling off all winter.

My fingers swell up a tad during yhe hot season ( I say hot season because it’s hot almost year round where I live). During winter my rings fit better with no muffin top. I have noticed that through changing my horrible diet and staying hydrated, my swelling has gone down considerably
