catqueen92 :  I procrastinated it for a while and felt like 1/4 a size wasn’t that big of a deal but now it’s a perfect fit!

It’s shocking what a difference a quarter size makes.  My wedding set is 4.5 and fits perfectly and doesn’t spin.  I have a right hand ring that’s 4.75, that is loose on my left hand.  And the 4.5 won’t go over my right knuckle without a lot more force, so much so I’m scared it won’t come off.  If your size is consistent and it feels wrong for over a year (all seasons) and your weight doesn’t change much, I’d just get it sized so that it’s perfect.

I also had 1/4 needed to be resized smaller for Ering and wedding band and so glad I got sizing beads. it cost me about $90 each to get beads but now no more spinning around fingers.

bubbly2018 :  same here! I waited almost 6 months and am so happy I finally pulled the trigger to size down 1/4. It’s so comfortable now I never feel it when I was almost always aware of it before. 1/4 size doesn’t sound like much but it can be all the difference!


OP, I went to my jeweler and showed them my issues. They first recommended sizing beads ($60) then had me try on the sizing rings before recommending a 1/4 size down (free). If I need it sized up in the future they said it was easy peasy  and still free 🙂

I am the same size finger and I think I am in the same situation as you too! Sometimes it feels loose and moves around on my finger a little more but other times it is so snug. It doesn’t really spin which I know is a big factor. I was recommended to wait until the summer and see how it feels then because I wouldn’t want to get it sized down and then not be able to get it on/off in the summer. I bought one of the plastic things you put on the bottom to make it tighter but that actually made it too tight so I’ve just carried on with my ring as it is and actually I don’t even think about it possibly being too big anymore so I don’t think I will get it sized down. Wait and see is my advice.
