See if the jeweler can put beads in it– my fingers shrink like crazy in the winter, but our jeweler told me that adding a band might actually make it fit a little bit tighter when it’s cold out, so he put in a pair of little metal beads. This way, my ring stays on this winter, and if adding the band does in fact make it tighter, he can file the beads off again without damaging the ring at all. Maybe you can have the same thing done so that you don’t have to worry about damage either.

Here’s an example of what I’m talking about; it took a week or so to get used to, but now I don’t even feel them.

Get the beads put in or a bar. My ring is a size too big and can’t be resized without damaging the ring. I first had the beads but it got too lose so now I have a bar in it. The bar is actually more comfotable than the beads were.

mrsbrizz2017 :  put in sizing beads, that’s what I did and it’ll be easy to remove them in case you need to without compromising the structure of the ring.

mrsbrizz2017 :  What is your timeline on the last part of your weight loss? I definitely wouldn’t resize them now, but I would either get those bead-things that a pp suggested or put the set away, and wear something temporary until your weight is where you want it to be and you can have it realized for good (hopefully ;)) 

Congrats on your weightloss by the way, that’s so cool! 👍🏻

mrsbrizz2017 :  there isn’t issues with resizing “too many times”, but with resizing TOO MANY SIZES. MY ring was a 7 when we bought it, which they usually are off the shelf and when I went in to get it sized before he proposed, I measured a 4.75 and going  2+ sizes different from original is a no-no. if you have diamonds on the band it can alter their settings and cause them to fall out. do you have a solitaire? how many sizes have you gone down so far?

mrsbrizz2017 :  I doubt you’ll go down below a 5 even with weight loss, because your knuckles are what they are.. but you might end up at quarter sizes like 5.25 or something. If your jeweler has in house sizing I’d just put the set away until maybe 1.5 weeks or so before the wedding (or however long the jeweler says it’ll take, and stress that you need them back for your wedding so they don’t mess around) and then get them sized to what you need. ::)

I just realized how far away your wedding is lol. just put them at way until you lose the 12 you want to lose and then go get  them sized again! 🙂 you won’t be any less engaged without your rings on for a couple months! but you’ll be devastated if you lose them becuasee they fall off!

Since you’re planning on losing more weight, I think I’d use one of those little clear plastic sizers that slides on your band and makes it a bit tighter.  I don’t know that I’d want to resize it now and then resizer it again in a few months.

Since you are planning on losing more weight which may or may not make a difference to ring size and I assume you want to continue wearing your ring, I highly suggest those plastic sizers that look like a tight coil that slide onto the back of your band. I got mine on amazon and they came in different thicknesses which helped a lot until I got my ring re sized.

Since your ring has diamonds on the band, I wouldn’t risk sizing it again because that may cause stones to fall out more easily. My ring is a solitaire and my jeweler took it down from a 5.25 to 4.75 and said that if I wanted to size it down some more, then he would just put balls or a bar in but not resize it because resizing more than once weakens the overall integrity of the ring. Re evaluate after your weight loss is complete and see if sizing beads or a bar will work.
