Thanks for your input all.
I am buying the palladium solitaire ring online.
My feeling is that her actual e-ring size might fall between 4.5 and 4.75, with an error margin of .5 lets say, so her range could be between 4 to 5.25.
I think it would definitively be better for the ring to be resized down rather than up, not because it would allow her to try it on right away, but because from what i’ve been reading this seem to be an easier process for jewelers and also as I mentionned the ring will be in palladium which isnt a metal that jewelers around here work with commonly, so finding a jeweler to resize the ring bigger could be problematic, however they might be more likely to be able to resize it down.
Keeping this in mind then, I guess it’s best to go with a little bigger to be safe and avoid resizing up, therefore I’d go with size 5.
What i’m wondering though is, what if her real size is 4.75, is it a problem to go down .25 only? I think usually resizes are done for .5 or 1 size or even up to 2 size difference, but is it doable for such a minimal change of .25?

I got my ring re-sized by 3/4 of a size and plan to have it sized down another 1/4 size this summer. I thought I would get used to it being a little loose, but I just haven’t. My jeweler said that if I wanted to get it re-sized from a 6.25 down to a 6, that wouldn’t be a problem.
Honestly, I wouldn’t worry too much. Most people who don’t go ring shopping/know their ring size have to have their rings re-sized. I did. It took like 3 hours and was very painless.

I’ve had to get all my size 5.5 rings made to 5.25, so yes jewelers will do it. Good luck!

This is the sweetest thing I’ve seen on here!! I hope your gf makes an account after you propose and sees this :p. I’d go with a 4.75 since it’s kinda in the middle… my right hand finger is only a size or two bigger than my left ring finger Though I’m a bit taller at 5’5″. Either way you shouldn’t be too off :3

This is so adorable! I would go with 4.75. Have fun!

ya, i would have went with 4.75 but to be safe I went with 5. The bottom line is that whatever calculation I do, this is still an estimation, so chances are that the ring will need to be resized, unfortunately… thefore, since most local jewelers around here do not work with palladium they might be more likely to be able to reduce the size (cut a part out) rather than increase (add metal) the size. So by going bigger I am making sure that the resizing will be more convenient.
Hopefully my calculations were wrong and she is really a size 5!
