    @Stormchild:  I suggest going smaller.  I was very uncomfortable always thinking I was going to lose my ring before it was correctly sized.


    Darling Husband ordered his ring a 1/2 size up because the correct size sizer got stuck on his hand at the jewelry store… he hates it!

    I thought that when I had first tried on my ring it was too tight. I tried it on in the evening, which your hands swell. I am so glad that I kept it the original size which is 6.75. Although with my wedding band it makes everything fit a bit tighter. I will be having it resized before the wedding to a size 7.

    If you’re anything like me you’ll hate having your rings loose at all.  I’m normally a 4.75, but my e-ring is a 4.5, and my wedding ring is a 4 (since I rarely take it off).  Get the ring just big enough to squeeze over your knuckles but tight enough that it doesn’t spin. IMO.

    I seem to be in the minority here but I am in the process of getting my e-ring resized from a 6 to a 6.75, and am even debating telling the jeweller to go up to a 7 when they call me with the quote.  I thought mine fit perfectly as it was ‘snug’ when I first tried it on.  After wearing it for a while here and there I noticed that my hands changed sizes quite a bit throughout the day and that at time I was VERY uncomfortable with a snug ring.  I know that a lot of bees prefer their rings to be smaller for fear of losing them, but personally I prefer the comfort of having a slightly looser ring.

    I hate a too tight ring so I went up with mine.  Fingers swell throughout the day, and typically are larger in warm weather.  My ring will be a bit loose during the winter but very tight in the summer.  I also wear a right hand ring everyday so I know how I like rings to fit.  I hate hate hate the muffin top that happens when a ring is too tight.

    I would suggest getting some cheap rings in different sizes and try wearing them for a few days.  That will give you a good idea of how it really feels.  Sometimes trying them on for a few minutes at the store just doesn’t give you a good sense of how it will really feel.

    Also keep in mind the width of your band will make for a tighter fit. Because the band of my e-ring is so wide, I had to size up to a 7, but my wedding bands, being thinner, are my measured size, 6.75.

    I think my “correct” size is 5.25, but my e-ring is sized to a 5.5 because I don’t like having to wrestle with it to get it over my knuckle. It slides on and off without too much effort, but it isn’t so loose that it would just come off by itself. Even when I wash my hands, it won’t come off by itself. Also, I don’t really mind too much when it spins. 

    It might sound kind of silly, but I figured that it was too tight if I could wrestle it on but Fiance couldn’t get it past my knuckle for fear of hurting me Tongue Out haha.

    I suggest getting the larger size and perhaps having the jeweler adding size balls inside of the ring. This will add to the ring so it doesn’t spin or fall off. And if you gain weight they can be easy removed or made smaller.

    Personally, I went a bit smaller because in dry/cold weather, my fingers shrink so much that my rings would just need a light pull to come off. The good thing is that if your fingers expand in the future, you can always get it resized
