Order a ring that fits.  You’ll be much happier with it.

My ring came in and it was too big even though it was special order. I had the size beads put in which helped a lot! But it is still a little big. It does not slip off though and that was my main concern. If you are not at ease with it I would return it. But if its big but does not slip off then I would say just keep it. My ring is a 4.5 but i think my finger must be a 4 or 4.25. So I can imagine how a 6 on a 4.5 finger would be.

Do you really want to wear a ring with some sort of spacer for decades? Didnt think so. Order one that fits you. Maybe get a pretty fake/ cheaper ring to tide you over?

Agree with PPs. Yuck for the extra waiting time, but you really do want a ring in the correct size!!!

I agree with PPs. Make sure it fits. I currently have a promise ring that isn’t sized correctly and once it gets cold I have to wear it on a chain around my neck.

Yes, definitely order the ring that fits.  I wear a 4.5 and cant imagine a size 6 ring for it.

If you don’t want to order a whole new ring, take the ring to a speciality jeweler who does custom pieces. I had the same issue with my ring since I have pave diamonds in the band. My ring was custom made in another state so I had to find someone near my home who would do it. It was a PAIN!!! But the jeweler I took it to did a fantastic job and made sure to go in and check every diamond & even added some metal to ensure the stones wouldn’t fall out! It was a little over $100 and took just a few days (I’m in portland Or) I’m sure you’d be able to find someone in Austin!

I would get a ring that fits. The piece of mind it brings will be priceless. You will be too worried about losing it the rest of your life if you don’t.  I know it is no fun to be ringless- my wedding band is at the jeweler’s right now and has been for a  month. I hate not having it and if I didn’t have an e-ring, I would definitely get a stand-in to wear while I wait. Good luck and remember in the grand scheme of things, waiting 2 months to get your ring isn’t that long! 🙂

Get the one that fits! Being without it won’t be fun, but it would really be better in the long run to get the one that fits. 🙂

Hopefully in those 3 weeks you had a chance to show off to all the most important people? I’d say return it and order the right size.

@Stephamus:  Beautiful; ring, get it special ordered, you don’t want to lose it one day while your busy doing something and not notice.

@OctBride-2012:  This. My FI ordered my ring at a 5.5 and I wore a sizer on it for a couple of weeks until we could get it in to be resized. I hated it. The sizer punched, and it never fit right. Eventually we got it sized down to a 4.5 and I’m so much happier.

I hate to say it, but I would recommend ordering a new ring in your size.

@Stephamus:  I hate to say it but I think you’ll always have a problem with it if you don’t get it in your size.
