beethebride :  I say keep your current sizable e-ring setting and get a narrow (to leave finger space for another band) gold band that will also be easily sizable for now. Leave the blingy band for an anniversary ring, that gives your finger plenty of time to settle into a size. Sizing rings (without pave) down is less damaging to the structure than sizing them up. Just be sure to tell your jeweler (or remind them) that the rings have been previously sized so they know to look for and cut on the existing solder joint.

Note: a 10k band will be sturdier and less likely to bend or warp than a 14k band. A considerationif you choose something very thin.

In your case, I would probably purchase a moissanite band to wear. It’ll be super sparkly, and at that size will look very diamond like. You’ll lose money on resale, but it’ll still retain some value secondhand.

I would strongly recommend against getting the ring you really want now, while you’re still in the middle of your weight loss journey. I say wait it out. Good luck to you, Bee!

Its a .70cwt total, not huge, the necklace and ear rings are a bit smaller and slightly different.
