When we looked at rings and were checking sizes, the jeweler said to err on the tight side, so the ring won’t get loose and fly off.  She said you want to have to “work it a little” to get it over the knuckle, but it should fit better at the bottom of your finger.   Not sure I 100% agree though….

If you know your fingers/hands swell from time to time, then maybe keep that in mind and get it sized up just a bit from “too tight”.  My ring needs to be sized from a 6 to a 5.75 (apparently they have .25 sizes), which I worried might be too small when its warm, etc.  But I’ll try it and if it needs to be sized up again, so be it!

I can fit a 4.5 just fine, but my fingers swell when it’s warm so I went up a quarter size to a 4.75. In the winter time my e-ring spins like crazy, but in the summer months it’s rather snug and really difficult to take off. Now that I have my wedding band it does feel more snug.

@softballchic_2006:  you can go a quarter size up and get sizing beads put in. Although my actual ring size is a 4.5, we had the jeweler size it to a 4.75 (for sizing beads), but I just had my SO send it back to resize it to a 4.5 since my mom’s ring is that size and I tried it on in warmer months and it fits!

1. I’ve never heard of that metal until you mentioned it and I looked it up. Personally I would go with gold or platinum since that other metal is fairly new.

2. I have larger knuckles so I’ve been having that problem lately because the miracle of birthing 2 children has caused my fingers to be larger even though I lost all the baby weight. I’m a 5 1/2 past my knuckle but I need to lather it with soap or oil for it not to hurt so I went with a 5 3/4. Honestly in the summer my fingers tend to swell and I hate rings that are tight so I’d rather them have a little bit of give. Just make sure they don’t slide past your knuckle easily and you’re good. Also, some jewelers can size in between sizes and that’s what it sounds like you might need. Maybe you need a size 7 3/4?
