I found these boards thanks to my girlfriend’s pinterest page and I hope someone can help with my dilemma. My girlfriend and I went ring shopping back in May of last year and the jeweler said she was a size 4.75. We learned in July that we are expecting and over the course of the pregnancy her ring size jumped to size 5-5.25. I started a custom ring order and am about to give the approval for production, but now I’m confused about which size to get her. I don’t want to get the larger size and then she loses baby weight and the ring is too big, but then again I don’t know if I should get the 4.75 just in case it takes a little longer for her to get where she wants to be after our daughter is born, which should be any day now. I love her any size, but I know she’s determined to get back to her pre-pregnancy weight before walking down the aisle, so should I go with 4.75? Here I thought choosing the ring would be the most difficult decision…

Go with the larger ring, it is easy to size down later, you can also get a piece that fits in the ring and adjusts it to fit. I can’t think of the name right now.

Have you discussed whether or not the ring can be resized with your jeweler? If the ring can be resized, I’d getting the size she can wear now knowing that it can be adjusted to fit her pre-pregnancy size when she’s ready.

Make sure the ring can be sized. In the mean time as her ring size fluctuates a jeweler should be able to put a spaceR in.

If the shank of the ring is pave, resizing could be a problem. A plain metal shank is easy to resize. Realize also that the addition of a wedding band may make an engagement ring feel more snug. I’d go with a 5.

Go with the bigger size. Easier to size down than up. And regardless of whether she loses all the weight sometimes pregnancy permanently changes the size of your fingers.

It’s pave 3/4 of the way. Jeweler said it can be resized. I didn’t know that about wedding rings making the engagement ring more snug. Thanks for that. Since majority says 5, I’ll trust you all since you know more than I do. Thanks for the help!

Good choice 😉 5 is the way to go. My hands swell and go down a TON and I’m not even expecting. I wouldn’t go as high as 5.25 because personally, I never take my e ring off so as long as its not giving me muffin finger, I’m okay with having to work at it to get it off if I need to. When my hands get cold the ring slips off very easily so if she’s anything like me, going the middle ground will be best course of action and luckily it can be resized 🙂

When I was heavily pregnant i couldn’t get my rings past my knuckle but by a week or so later they were fitting as normal again. A lot of weight gain on fingers in pregnancy is just water retention/swelling and so you don’t want to go too big a size as she’ll likely be back to her normal ring size quite quickly.
