My e-ring and wedding band got sized to be the same and my wedding band is too small!! Makes no sense to me, I have just kinda decided it might be because my band is actually a wrap and might be pushing things up or something. But, I have no real reason lol Here’s pictures of mine…might have something to do with it??

I got my wedding band sized one full size larger than the e-ring.  When I wore each ring separately, they each felt fine and were the correct size, but as soon as I wore them together, they felt too tight.  I got just the wedding band sized up and they are so much more comfortable.  (I chose to resize the w-band because I thought if that one was the larger one, my correctly-sized e-ring would keep it on my finger and I wouldn’t have to worry about losing it.)  They look great together, but yes, they are different sizes.

@CLaire10 I’m glad I’m not the only one. Good thing is we have 15months til the wedding, so plenty of time to resize.

Rings feel differently when worn on their own as compared to when worn together. I had two rings I used to wear together and they would always seem too big, But if I took one off they other seems to fit fine on its own. I honestly cant explain this and I just thought my fingers were weird

If it feels fine alone but tight together, it could be due to their width when they’re together. If you’ve gone to the jewelry store to buy a ring and used their little ‘test size’ rings, you may have notice they’ve got one that’s around 2/3mm and another that’s more like 4/5mm, due to the fact that the wider the band the more of your finger it will cover.

My e-ring is just a tish loose, but I’m leaving it because once I have my band on with it, it will be a bit higher on my finger (the fleshier part rather than the base of my finger) and therefore just a bit more snug.

I think it has a bit to do with the shape of the finger(one ring is a bit above the other, right? So maybe fingers are ever so fatter up top?), where they sit differently and being wider bands (when next to each other) perhaps it constricts the finger a bit? Mine are both 5.25 and each feel perfect alone but together they are snug…


It’s a wedding mystery 🙂

Its because your finger has more “puff” coser to the mmiddle where your wedding ring is 🙂

My e-ring is 5.5 Comfort Fit and my wedding band is 6 [classic?] fit.

The comfort fit bit means that the inside of the ring is slightly domed, so less of it touches your skin … which means you usually get away with half a size smaller ring. Also, the band of my ering is thicker (half bezel setting), so it had to be smaller for it to not look huge next to my thin, low profile wedding band.

mine are sized the same and fit just fine, but they’re relatively thin (2 and 3 mm each so 5 mm together). As long as you get yours to fit right, don’t worry about the numbers or the “how” 🙂

Mine are the same sizes but I have heard of people having to get one or the other sized bigger, especially when they’re soldered together.

you’ll need a bigger size on a ring that is thicker..

i ordered my wedding band to be the same size as my e-ring, but i am not too worried since i will wear them on different hands.  i just hope one finger isnt bigger or smaller than the other!

getting ready to order mine and was wondering the same. I am going to get it the same size as my engagment ring and I will get it sized up I guess if need be.  Everyone I have spoken to has the same size and no problems – hopefully I wont either.
