I will post in those threads if my ring size is close to what the poster is looking for, but I always state what my ring size is in the post. 

So no… I wouldn’t lie about it.

How do you know what size their finger is? Maybe they have short fingers so smaller size appears bigger. Maybe they have small knuckles? I could not determine a person’s finger size based on a photo. Hell, I don’t even know my own size and I look at my fingers all day.

How do you know they don’t have that ring size?

How do you have any idea what someone’s ring size is?

I don’t even know what my ring size is… I just try on rings, if they fit great, if not, so be it. 

If a ring is too big, obviously I can downsize it easily enough at a jewelry store, but if it’s too small, I won’t bother, it costs too much money to make it bigger!

I’m sure no one here lies about their ring size. Some smaller sizes look larger and some larger sizes look smaller. I’ve seen some fingers that are the same size as mine (9) and I think “Wow, their fingers look way slimmer than mine” but I’ve never thought “Oh, they’re lying.” And it’s really no big deal even if someone does lie about their ring size. I don’t really see how it’s hurting anyone.

OP,I get what you’re saying. On certain threads like “Show me ___ carats on size ___ fingers” some pictures do look a bit off, but keep in mind that hands are very varied.

For instance, most jewelers thought I was a size 4 just by looking at my hands. After being properly fitted it turns out I was more of a size 2.5. I don’t blame them for thinking my ring size would be bigger. I have long and old lady looking hands with pronounced knuckles. I ended up with a size 3 engagement ring and a size 4 wedding band that are very loose but thankfully my big old knuckle keeps them in place haha.

How can you be sure they are lying? The proportions can throw off the appearance of size by quite a bit. The setting on the stone bringing it closer or further from the camera can make it look bigger or smaller too.

@juliesprague:  “I’m not saying I have any idea what peoples sizes are… I’m saying sometimes you see a pic of someone claiming to have a size 4 or 4 1/2  and there is noo way”

So you don’t know, but yet you somehow know?

Good question, why WOULD you lie about your ring size? I can’t think of a very compelling reason, so isn’t the most plausible answer that they aren’t lying, and you are wrong?

Just really curious, what size finger does it look like I have?  I’m the one in the white dress with my ring all twisted.

I have trouble believing there are many girls lying about their size on an anonymous internet forum.  There may be a couple oddballs that would, but I don’t think it’s happening much, if it’s happening at all.

Different people have things fit together differently on them.  For example, in my thinner days, I knew girls who looked about my size, but I weighed 10 or 15 pounds more than them.  They’d look really surprised to find that out.  And I’ve known girls who were thin, but not that thin, yet were still a size 0 because of the proportions of their bodies.  So I totally believe that many of these girls are telling the truth about their ring size.
