I’ve had my ering for 6 months and I already have an indent.  I don’t leave it off long enough to see if it would go away, but mine doesn’t feel too tight either.  My mom told me if you’re well hydrated this will be less of an issue(?)

@Mrslawyer2bee: I’ve been married two years now. It only gets more indented over time.

i have an indent whenever i take off my wedding band. even though i ordered the same size as my e-ring, its a bit tighter for some reason (and i wear it alone on my left hand where my e-ring used to be). I have never taken it off long enough to see if the indent goes away, although it looks exactly like yours.  


@drakela2:  when you are de-hydrated, your skin has less elasticity to it.  a good way to test if you are hydryated is to pinch the top of your hand and if the skin does not go back into place immediately, you should be drinking more water.  

OP, maybe you are dehydrated, or maybe it will just a long time to go back to normal. eventually you lose all your skil cells and new ones replenish, so i think over time it will go away.

I had a toe ring for about 3 years, and when I finally took it off there was an BIG indent on my toe.  It did eventually go away after about 2-3 months I’d say.

I have one where my e ring is worn. I have never taken it off long enough to see if it will go away or not though. My ring isnt tight at all, infact it moves quite a bit, I think that is just your bodies way of adapting to having a ring on your finger idk.

I have an indent on my left ring finger that I’ve had since I started wearing rings there (first rings from my parents, then my promise ring from Fiance, now the e-ring).  I drink TONS of water and it never goes away!  I don’t mind at all because I never take my rings off.  My promise ring is now on my right hand, and it’s now indented as well, although not AS much as my left.

I’ll tell you this: my mom has suffered from athritis in her fingers forever, as did her mom, and as I probably will someday as well.  HOWEVER – she says that her ring fingers (she has wedding rings/bands and a right hand ring as well) are much better in terms of pain than the rest of her fingers.  I’m not sure if it has something to do with the circulation, the nerves, or even the gold, but there you go!  I should really go get 8 more rings, lol!

is it stupid that i love my ring indent?

it’s like… the ring is still part of me even if it’s not on me (which is only for the bi-annual check up to keep my lifetime guarantee… or to get it cleaned).

I have a ring indent, too, and I’ve had my ering for a  little over 6 months. I have a split shank, so I have a double indent, haha. It goes away slightly if I don’t wear my ring for a day or two (if we are home during the weekend I usually don’t wear it around the house).

 @rosworms: It’s not stupid. I sort of like it, too.

@Mrslawyer2bee:  I also have a “dent” where my promise ring is.  I’m not sure how long it takes to go away, to be honest.  Maybe you should tell your SO you need a little something to cover it up (ie an e-ring).  Lol.  Just kidding. . .kinda. 😉

I wore a ring on my left ring finger for years and it took a couple of years for the indent to go away after I lost it. I’m still contemplating getting another one to wear.

Hmm, two weeks later? I’ve been wearing my e-ring for 10 months and I forgot to put it back on one day last week after a shower. By the end of the day my indent was almost completely gone. Maybe the ring is a 1/4 size too tight?

Oh yes. I’ve only had mine since January (oh god, 9 months already?!) and it’s pretty clear a ring belongs there when I’m not wearing it.  My finger is totally dented.
