Are you planning on getting a wedding band? If so. I wouldn’t size it down. Once you add the band the ring gets a little harder to slip off.

@LadyMoriarty:  My ring’s the same way. It’s a 6, while my actual finger is a 5.5. It spins around a lot and feels loose. But once I tried it on with my wedding band (see photo for thickness) it struggled to come off my knuckle and didn’t spin.

 

I’d recommend atleast trying on some wedding bands before committing to resizing

Your ring is beautiful. I really struggled with ring sizing, and ended up taking it to the store and having them resize it by opening it, and putting it on my finger to check the size. If you are uncomfortable about the size, it can never hurt to ask!

@IowaDDS13:  +1  I lost weight and my ring was looser.  I was thinking of resizing, but then once I put on my wedding band it is much better.  It actually feels a bit tight sometimes.  You could get a guard until you decide and you could also look into sizing balls.  That is what my SIL has for her ring.  My e-ring band is rather thin and my wedding band is about average thickness.   Just to show you.

Some sliding is pretty normal since that part of the finger is generally the smallest.  As long as it doesnt feel like it’s going to go over your knuckle and fly away, it should be fine.  If it can be flung completely off your hand, then it should be resized though.  Since you’re in Cali and it’s arleady this loose, I imagine it would be even looser in cold weather.  It does sound like it may need to be sized or add some sizing beads.

@LadyMoriarty:  That happened to me. I got my ring sized in February in Chicago and it was freezing outside. I know my fingers had shrunk! I also had been wearing a too tight ring on that had before we got engaged (and had a bad ring indent) So we sized my ring at at 5. Then we had it redone when I’d left my ring off to get rid of the indent and it was warmer. Turns out, I should’ve been wearing a 6! Oops!

I could not commit to resizing so I got shots placed.  may be an option if you think you hand may still change in size.

@LadyMoriarty:  Oh. Em. Gee.  I LOVE YOUR RING!

I would wait until you decide for sure what you’re getting for a wedding band, especially if you’re only 1/4-1/2 size too loose.  As PP’s pointed out, it will fit a little more snugly, and how much depends on the ring (what is the width, is it comfort fit, etc).

My jewler won’t size it down if it’s less then .5 in the winter. The reason is because in the summer it will be too snug. Makes sense to me?

@LadyMoriarty:  I wouldn’t size it. I just love your ring!!! Can I ask where you got it designed? I live in the LA area too and I’m just curious. I am obsessed with winter/the cold/Christmas, etc so anything that looks like a snowflake makes me swoon 0:)
