I have a size 7 engagement ring. However, my ring size is a 5 1/2 to 5 3/4. I have diamonds on the band of my ring so they are unable to size it down past a 6. My jewerlers suggested two things reorder a ring in my right size (Free) , or size it to a 6 and put a ring spring inside. ($150). Although i really want to keep the ring he gave me i also want it to be the right size. im worried about my fingers swelling and how the reordered ring might fit in the summer months. Im also worried about how the ring spring will feel. So… What should i do??

Resize to a 6 and then add sizing beads! My ring is a size 9 but has sizing beads that make it fit like an 8.5. Most of the time I wear an 8.5 but my fingers swell in the summer and when I’m on my period, so the ring fits securely but has room to accommodate swelling.
The sizing beads only took a few days to get used to and I don’t even notice them anymore. They did feel pretty strange for the first day. I think they’re a lot more comfortable than the sizing spring. They also help keep the ring upright and from spinning, which is nice.
If you decide to order a new ring, you’ll run into problems in the future if you ever need to resize the ring (weight gain, pregnancy, etc).

I say reorder in a 6! I have a 6.5 finger but wear a size 7 ring. You should still have room for swelling with the extra half size and can’t use beads if it feels too loose…

Hmm, I am a 6 and I wear a 6 1/4 to accomodate a little swelling. If I had any bigger, it would drive me crazy, but I think that’s personal preference. Some people prefer a looser fit, so long as it doesn’t fly off. Can you try a size 6 on and see how it feels, particularly at the end of the day and maybe after working out so your hands are a big swollen AND earlier in the day before your hands are too swollen? (I did this to determine the right size ring for me) And can you try a ring with the sizing spring/beads just to see how it feels?
Other things that are important to consider: your ring size may change over the years. also, your ring will fit tighter once it has a band with it – it’ll sit higher up on your finger and more width = tighter fit.

I have a size 9 ring even though I insisted my true size is an 8. Unfortunately when I tried on the ring sizer it was Q. I knew on the day I tried the ring sizer my hands were swollen because of the heat. My ring is now slightly loose, it swivels from side to side and at one point it was back to front. Since my hands returned to normal. I’m thinking too of getting it resized but afraid of getting it done.
