I have the same problem.    It doesn’t spin as much when I have my wedding band, and I plan to have them soldered after the wedding ( 4 days!!)

Man, me too! I have ALWAYS worn a 4.25 size ring. I even used the sizing rings at the jeweler and 4.5 was waaaay too big and 4 was a little too small to comfortably go over my knuckles. 4.25 has always been like Goldilocks for me(juuuust right) but once I got my ring I realized it is probably about a half size too big! If I shake my hand really hard it can fly off and it is constantly spinning. It is getting cooler here and I noticed that now it is spinning even MORE! 🙁

Sadly, I smashed my finger on the door frame this morning and cut my finger with my ring(oops…I even took plaster off the wall! Damn good ring though, she is fine!) and so I put a bandaid on underneath. The thing still spins but it fits like a glove. It doesn’t slide up to my knuckle all day long and it doesn’t spin as bad. I wish it fit like this all the time 🙁

I can’t get it sized EVER unless I want to destroy the integrity and design of the ring and I don’t want to put beads in it because it is a designer ring and I don’t want it to cover up the name. (Pretentious, I know. but this is literally the only designer item I own and dammit, I want to show it off!!!)

*le sigh* I will just have to deal with it. But I am glad I am not alone in this journey!!

my engagement used to spin a lot, but it fits much better with my wedding ring on. i had my rings soldered a few weeks before my wedding so i don’t have to deal with any spinning at all now 🙂

@lina010:  I have larger knuckles on my ring finger thanks to several sprains and a break compliments of volleyball. My rings are not soldered (e-ring and two wedding bands) and they spin as they are large enough to fit over my knuckle but of course my actual finger is smaller.

I was told that one the rings are soldered they seem to become smaller, as the ring as a whole gets wider. This should alleviate some of the spinning. So perhaps when you get a wedding band if you have them soldered it will help.
