What is your setting like? It would probably help if you posted some pictures of the ring and your ring’s current size.

If it makes you feel any better, I have thyroid issues – even after they took the damned thing out. I swing back and forth between a Size 8 and a Size 12. I’m not short so none of those look very large on me but there is a +/- 40 lbs or so in there. When I am at my VERY smallest, my ring size is a 7.5. When I am at my VERY largest, my ring size is an 8.5. Ring size has SOME to do with body fat but a lot of it has to do with the structure of the finger, size of the knuckle, etc… Don’t worry too much.

Since your setting is so detailed, I can see why they would be limited in how much they can size it without affecting the integrity of it. You certainly don’t want to lose any small stones!

If you need it smaller than they can make it, you can always look into sizing beads or a sizing bar.

You could have it sized down the most it can be then have some sizing beads added.

Hmm…I wonder if it would be possible to take out a couple of diamonds and fill in with gold if they need to resize much more. I don’t know if your finger size will shrink all that much, especially considering your knuckles won’t change in size.

sway0060:  I think it really depends on your body. Even if I lose a ton of weight, my fingers never lose more than a size. So I guess in your case, that would be ideal! I think just wait and see how it plays out. Congrats  on your progress so far!
