@thdpr:  Sounds clever! Yes, rings do fit differently with the temperature and with the time of day. Fingers swell up in the morning and then get smaller. Winter = spinning rings! Luckily, I have larger knuckles that keep the rings from falling out but your trick should work as well. Also, there is a trick named “sizing beads”. They help keep the ring in place and you can still take off the ring because your skin squeezes through the two beads.

The ring snuggie is so uncomfortable! I like the idea of holding them on with a smaller band.

I think your plan sounds perfect actually! I recently got my e-ring sized down because it was feeling way too loose with the cold weather, BUT it still spins. I have yet to see how it feels now in the warm weather but I do know if feels a bit tight when my body is warm. My plain band is a half size larger and I almost never feel like it’s going to fall off and it’s always super comfy too. If I were you then I would absolutely carry out your plan just as you stated in your post 🙂

Remember that as you stack bands, you often need to go up 1/4 to 1/2 size. So I would get the stackers in your original size and then see how things go.

@Scintillante:  There is a bee on here that had a jeweler put a little metal arch on the bottom of the ring because she didn’t want to have it re-sized.

I have a ring snuggie on right now, I just got it this morning and so far so good!

You are not over thinking this, but 2 bands will be tighter than one anyway…  You may find a band with it makes it snug enough on it’s own.  

When I wear just an e-ring, I take a 6.  Then for every 2mm band I need the whole stack to go up .25 in size… so for 3 rings or 6mm total of rings, I need 6.75.  make sense?  So before you order a micropave band a size smaller,  I would try it on with a band now.  You may find it fits and if you want another band on top of it, you may want it in the same size too.

@nambi_pambi:  do you notice the ring snuggie on? where did you buy it, i can’t seem to find the snuggies in stores anywhere.

@KKay123:  did it take some time to get used to the beads?

I can feel it on there at first, and because it’s cear you only see it if im up close. I go them from Ardene’s, a crappy little costume jewelry store, you can also get them at Claires, another crappy costume jewelry store.

 

My boyfriend has also suggested that I let him put some of his fishing line allong the bottom, which seems like it might be a little more comfortable.

I have the same thing with my ring and also am going to have 2 bands for the same reason. My plain band is .25 smaller and am hoping that it will keep everything in place.
