I was sized at 4 3/4 by my jeweler but went with a 5 just to be safe, and I’m glad I did. I have fleshier/tapered fingers so they swell and shrink based on the weather or the day of my cycle. Most of the time the ring fits perfect but once or twice a month it feels snug and when my hands get cold it spins and slides quite a bit.

Your ring doesn’t look too tight right now, but you said it’s smaller than your size… how much smaller? Can the jeweler size the ring up for you? Also, once you add your wedding band your e-ring will fit even tighter… just food for thought.

I think it looks perfect. It dips in just a touch so that it stays on. I’m sure your finger size changes from morning to night. My ring is loose in the morning, and snug at night, unless I’m cold, then my fingers shrink again.

It actually looks ok, especially for being so warm out. Try it on with a second ring (wedding band) and see how it feels. You may decide to size up with 2 rings (or resize it once you’re married and wearing both often).

It looks fine to me. Are your knuckles bigger than the bottom of your finger or smaller? That will determine whether you want the ring to fit snug on your finger or not. My knuckle is bigger than the bottom of my finger, so it needs to be looser to fit through the knuckle (and the knuckle stops it from falling off even when my finger shrinks in the cold). If your bottom of the finger is more fleshy, it needs to hold the ring in place so it doesn’t slide off when you get cold / your finger shrinks.

It looks a tad bit snug to me.  It will feel tighter with another ring added. With bloat, or weight gain (hopefully none of us have that lol!) it could feel tighter also…

This is my ring in Key West in July. Super warm. It almost felt tight.

Now it is fine. No idents and spins on colder days. Your fingers swell in heat.

Looks good but kinda hard to tell. If you push up from the base of the ring, how much space is there above your finger? How much effort is required to take it off? If you wash your hands with soap are you nervous of it slipping off?

To me it looks just right. There is minimal indent and as you said it was a very hot day. So probably your finger would be more swollen then.

Wear it for a year and then size as desired.

It looks like a pretty good fit to me. Fingers swell during the day. You said its 105° and your fingers dont look super swollen. I’d keep it at its current size. It looks perfect

I think it looks pretty good.  My fingers swell when its hot out and my normally perfectly fitting rings get really tight.  The ring doesn’t even look that tight in the photo.  You could also wear it for a year to see how it is in all the seasons and then get it resized.

As PP’s have said, looks just right to me Xx
