mine needs to be resize too. I have the same large knuckle issue anisn’t really sucks bc the ring will always be too big. I’m a 4.5 at the smallest part but my ring will have to be a size 5 to fit over my knuckle.

i was told that on such small fingers beads wouldn’t help much as they are better on more fleshy fingers. I went to a store to try on a smaller size just to see what would fit. A 5 is it. It will be hard to take off but I keep smack my diamonds on things since my ring turns so I have no choice. 

Ypou could get her a smaller band and she could wear it on the outside to keep the e-ring on. Or you can have a hinge out on the e-ring so it opens up but I guess that is kind if expensive.

Most jewelers can size in quarter sizes (0.25 increments) but since she just got it I would wait until the weather is warmer so she can see how much her fingers swell.

I personally hate tight rings so mine are sized at least a quarter size too big to allow for the summer heat and humidity.  It stinks this time of year because they spin and topple over, but in the summer I don’t have that problem.

I would try the beads.. I have them on mine and don’t have fleshy fingers… It helps from keeping the ring from spinning..  I’d try the beads and then if that doesn’t work size it down a quarter…  Good Luck 🙂

@Dragonfly22ny:  that’s great to hear! I was told that by a couple of jewlers but if its not true i may try that! My ring is top heavy in addition to being too large so anything that would help the spinning would be great!

I’m a size 4 to get over my knuckle (and it’s a struggle) but in the winter I could definitely be a size 3.5 once it’s already on.  I’m waiting until the summer to see how I feel.  Right now I just jam it up higher to help it stop spinning.  I’m worried that with summer swelling I won’t be able to get it off if I had the sizing balls added.  When I do hot yoga the ring does seem to fit much better.  I’d wait for now.

@kryssbride:  Beads don’t bother me.. Felt a lil odd at firs and now I barely remember they are there..  The other thing is if you don’t like them they can take them off.  And they shoud be small beads – when I first got the ring it was big and they put larger beads..  My ring was still moving so they had to resize almost half a size down and then I got small beads because of the spinning.

@Chrissy26:  Definitely give it a shot – It is so annoying when the diamond is facing your palm and you have to keep adjusting it all day.

I would hold off on resizing the ring until after the warmer months. Also don’t forget that when she adds her wedding band the added width could make it feel tigheter.
