I live in a part of Canada where it gets very hot in summers and very cold. +40°C in summer and just today it was -46°C with a wind chill.
I’ve had my engagment ring for a little over a year now, and I’ve noticed the tightness fluctuate a bit, as has my weight, I think. It used to be able to come off and on with atleast a little bit more ease thanit does now!
My ring is snug. I can twist it around right now, but I cannot force it off. My skin/fat on my finger bulges up when I try to pull and it won’t budge. Yet, when I am outside, I can take it off fairly easily when I’m cold. When it’s summer here, it’s snug as well.
I see so many rings on here, with beautiful fingers (sorry if that sounds odd!) but they all seem to fit perfectly. Not snug, like mine.
So, my question. Do I get it sized up? What do i do in winter then, when it get’s cold? o:

As long as you can get it off when you run your hand under cold water, and it’s not uncomfortable in warm weather, I think you’re fine! :}

@Haruyou: If it fits right when your body temp. is warm i wouldn’t suggest to get resize. (unless you really need too) I have the same problem when its cold my Engagement Ring tends to move around. Then I went to jared (where i got my ring) and they solve my problem in a few hours. They give me 2 options and now my Engagement Ring doesn’t move around, even when the temp is warm it still won’t be too tight on me. perfect fit. They put Sizing balls inside my band. No one else can’t see it or anything. some people can feel them but I personally can’t. but its works like a charm!! and they can also take it off during the summer and put it back on during the winter!
Why don’t you go to the jewerly place and ask for suggestion and they can help you with your ring and what is best for you.

My finger size changes significantly with the temperature. It was more of a problem when I wore just my e-ring. In the winter I was so scared of my ring falling off, but I needed it to be that size for comfortable wear in the summer. But now that I wear it with my wedding band, it fits better. The larger the width of of your bands (combined), the larger the ring size needs to be. So going from 2mm of coverage with my e-ring to almost 4mm of coverage with my e-ring + wedding band made the fit much better for me.
My question to you is this- Do you find the tightness of the ring to be uncomfortable? If so, maybe going up a bit in size and adding sizing beads to keep it snug enough in the cold is right for you.

@lovekiss: It’s almost to the point of being uncomfortable… But good to know about the combined sizes of both! Thank you!
@JS1103: They said it was fine, and ‘normal’ that its snug… Maybe I can go in and be more forceful?

My size dropped from a 6 to a 5.5 when I lost weight, and I’ve found my ring fluctuates about half a size depending on weather. It’s pretty normal for fingers to be smaller in winter and larger in summer.
A properly fitting ring will come off with a bit of resistance, but it should never feel uncomfortably tight. It should never be so loose it can fall off your finger. I agree that you should talk to your jeweler if you’re having any issues.

@Haruyou: tell them how you want your ring to fit and they will make sure thats how you want it.

If it’s hurting your finger then I would suggest getting your ring resized…it shouldn’t hurt. What you can do is go up in size and then have sizing beads put in…that way you don’t have to go up too much in size to the point it’s too large on your finger when it’s cold outside…not sure if that makes sense???
