I love my e-ring, it is a 6.5 and I have had it for a year. I have lost about 25lbs, still have another 20 I want to lose and all of a sudden my ring feels way to lose, like its going to fall off if i dont pay attention. Our wedding is at the end of April, Im wondering if I should get it sized down 1/2 a size, down to a 6? my wedding band is also a 6.5 and we just had it sized down from a 7(altough it does not feel as lose as the e-ring does) should I have balls (or shots) put on my wedding band? I was thinking if i get my ering sized down enough then it will hold my wedding band on. Has anybody else had to rezie their e-ring or wedding band??

I don’t have helpful advice, but I did want to say WOW, CONGRATS! on your weight loss. 🙂

If you think you will lose more weight, and that it will keep coming off your fingers, I would suggest getting a ring sizer for now – you can get them for pretty reasonable prices. They are basically plastic tubes with a small slit in one side, and you can attach it to the bottom of your ring, keeping it from falling off.
If you think this is what your finger size will stay, I say go for the re-sizing. Have it size to the 6.5 that your finger is. You don’t want anything to be too tight, especially once you start wearing the two rings on one hand.

I was going to suggest the same thing as @futuremrsfitz18. If you’re not sure what she means, try Googling “ring snuggie.” Congratulations on your weight loss!

I had the same issue. I’ve lost about 20lbs and my ring was super loose. I was scared it would fall off and I’d lose a stone or something. I’m getting it resized and at the same time getting a curved wedding band made to fit with it. I know it will be fine because my Fiance actually sized it up before he proposed. Just make sure you have a reputable jeweler do the work. I’m confident in them because my ring is pretty detailed and they did a good job the first time around.

When I got my Engagement Ring, I couldn’t get it sized for a few weeks because the shop was in a different city from where we got engaged. I got the plastic ring things mentioned aboved from Claire’s (they are cheapy accessory stores in malls), if there’s one around you I highly suggest getting them until you know you’re at the weight you want to be at because one pack comes in lots of different sizes, and has multiple guards so you can use them for both rings if you want.
Congrats on losing the weight!!

Thanks guys! I had to put it away today 🙁 kind of ironic because todayis year ago Mr k proposed to me, but it’s just too big to feel comfortable wearing. And now mr k just tried his on and I’m afraid his is just a bit too big too. I can pull it right off his finger, he says he thinks it’s fine but that he doesn’t really know what a ring is supposed to feel like, and we just had his sized down 1/2 a size. Argh a little frustrated, it’s a hammered band so they had quite a time sizing it once, it will suck if we have to have it resized again, wondef ithey do do the ring balls for men’s rings?? And if that will work?
