My engagement ring is size 6.5 but now that it is winter 6.5 is just really loose. Not too bad but if I fling my hand around the ring will prob. fly off. My ring size for thinner bands (like my E-ring) is closer to 6.
I don’t want to get the ring sized b/c on days when I have too much salt or when it gets warmer the ring feels more snug without looking too sausage finger-y. I am also worried about getting it sized and in the future not being able to wear it during or after pregnancy.
So I was thinking, should I leave it and just get an extra band in size 6 to keep my engagement ring from sliding off in the winter? Or should we get the engagement ring resized to be a 6?
We have to decide soon b/c we have to order our wedding bands before we purchase our new house.

I would get an extra band (maybe a plain one) 1-2mm in size to slip above your e-ring on those super cold slippery days. You could even get a rose gold one to make it super different and fun!

I wear an 8, but had to go up to a 9 because the bands on my e-ring and band are thick. My e-ring slides all over the place now [not enough to fall off, but constantly spinning]. I am leaving it this way, if it gets too loose I can add a ring sizer to it, so not a big deal to me.

I chose a size that is slightly smaller than the jewler recommended. It still is the teensiest bit loose when my finger is at it’s smallest. When my finger is swollen it fits great. It’s a little bit of a struggle to get it off, but I don’t take it off often, so that doesn’t really bother me. The main reason for this is that I am terrified of losing my ring. I once was wearing a ring and washed my hands and then shook the water off my hands and the ring went flying across the room. After that I decided that for an important ring (like an e-ring) I definately did not want to risk losing it so I’d rather it be a little tight. So, if it was me, I’d get it a little smaller. You coudl also look at sizing beads.

Keep it as is. It will fit tighter when you pair a wedding band with it.

I’d wait to make any major changes until you’ve got your wedding band on. It can change how your ring fits. I think your best bets might be sizing beads or a thin band on top.

I’m going to second pp and suggest that you look into sizing beads.

I have a 2mm WG band that I wear throughout the winter/cold months on top of my e-ring to keep it from sliding off. If I did sizing beads, I’d spend more time at the jeweler getting them added and removed. I think a plain “keeper” band would be fine until you finally have your set on your finger, which should snug things up.

Can you get it sized to a 6 1/4? My size sounds very similar to yours and that’s what I did. It’s snug but not sausagey in the summer, and it’s looser but still takes a tiny tug to get over my knuckle in the winter. If it would fly off if you move your hand suddenly, I would be petrified about losing it and that’s no fun.

Exactly. Two rings fit tighter than one. Consider sizing beads to keep your ering on druing the winter.

Thanks ladies! I have even more to think about! I will have to look into the sizing beads now!
