after I got my ring I had it resized to a 5 1/2. It seemed to fit tighter after I had that done…now, though, it seems to be kind of ‘big’ again. Surely I’m not losing weight that fast. I can move it around on my finger really easily but have to pull a little to get it over my knuckle. I’m afraid of having it too small though. and I hate when it tilts side to side. Its over 2.5 carats so I expect it to do that a little bit though. What do ya’ll suggest? Should I go down to a 5 1/4? my fingers are fairly small – my knuckle is why i have to get it the size i do (to make sure it’ll go over it)

It may be that with colder weather your fingers are a bit smaller.
If going down a size means you can’t get it on and off your finger without extreme force, you might want to get those ring bead they solder into the bottom of the band, or one of the plastic ring guards, although thats a temporary solution.
My e-ring used to spin all the time because i have the same big knuckle small finger problem, but with my wedding ring against it it doesn’t happen as much. You might also consider soldering the two rings together to help with the spin.

Get sizing balls put in. They are 2 little balls the solder into the bottom of the ring to keep it from twisting side to side. I am going to have them put into mine because my finger swells a lot during the summer and my knuckles are a little big.
With the sizing balls you can still get the ring over your knuckle, but they will keep the ring from spinning once it’s on your finger.
I have a large-ish solitaire too and it flops from side to side right now, but I’m pretty sure the sizing balls will fix that.

My ring purchased was a 6 and definately too big so we had it taken down that week. I was torn between 5.5 and 5. I decided to go with the 5.5. Now it has been a few months and I have seen it in cold and warm weather. I am now decided that the 5 is for me and I actually just took it in on sunday. I suggest if it is not falling off your hand you live with it for a while and see how you do during all weather and times of day. It really took me a few months to decide and be sure in my decision.

I’m having a same problem!! Mines just a bit over 2cts and it wobbles a bit 🙁 I had it sized from a 5.75 to a 5.25, I can tell it’s more snug than it was but it is still a bit loose, I don’t know if it’s normal because of the weight of the ring or what. I’m going to wait and see how it feels with the wedding band before I decide
