Are you having the sizing done at the same place each time? It is common for it to be lose at times and tight at other, but it should feel just right the majority of the time. (I have an issue with this as well.) Sizing can vary by jeweler, but if you’re going to the same one each time then I’d try a different one. If you’re getting it done and paid for by the company from whom it was purchased, talk to someone in charge and let them know what’s been going on and try to get them to pay to have it sized by someone else. Metal doesn’t weaken during ring sizing. If they make it smaller, they cut out some of the metal and solder it together. If they make it larger, they cut the band and solder in more metal. The width of the ring can also affect the size, so if your ring has a wide band it would be possibly a quarter to half a size smaller than the standard ring sizer used by most jewelers.

I would have it sized to where its a bit loose & get sizing balls put in it, then have them removed during the summer months when your hands will swell like so:

There are rubber and metal ring resizers that you can adjust on your ring since your fingers will naturally change up to a 1/2 size from being cold to being very warm.

@Kate0558:  The sizing balls would work great because the jeweler puts them in & they cannot be taken out without tools to do so. They are white gold (or whatever metal your ring would be.) So they should work great!

The ring snuggies are horrible though (the little rubber ones) I couldn’t stand mine! :/

@MrsBroccoli:  I have the same ones! They hardly worked for me. :/ They fell off & I couldn’t wear my wedding band with my e-ring if it had the snuggie on because they’re so wide.

Okay, there is not a Jared where I live, but I’ve seen/heard commercials so I assume it’s like a Zales or Helzberg, right? If so, ask them if they use more than one jeweler for repairs. I used to work at a small jewelry store and we used two different venders. Eventually we figured out that the rings coming back from one of the venders was smaller than the others. The sizing balls could work, and it would fit on your band even if it’s thing, but they are rather expensive so having them put on/taken off as the seasons change may not be a viable option.

Working in a jewlery store I would have to say it is you and not your ring. You fingers change based on weather, how much salt you eat and about a hundred other reasons. Some days my ring slides around and some days it is too tight. youcan go up and down only a 1/4 of a siz. My Honest opinion is to either get a ring gaurd or try these balls people are posting about I have never seen the balls so you may have trouble finding them at some places. A gaurd you can wear and take off whenever you feel like it they just wrap around your ring.
