@CanadianMermaid: That happens to me, too. It depends what color my nails are, whether my hands are swollen, and what kind of mood I’m in. Haha 🙂

My ring finger went down an entire two sizes because of all the weight I’ve lost, so YES, it’s definitely ‘grown’.

@lovejewel: I wave my hand SUPER QUICKLY in basically every mirror when I go shopping….I seriously hope no one ever sees me doing it because they’d think I was the most shallow person on earth…but hey! It looks huge in mirrors:))

@HappilyEverAfter54: What’s your actual carat size?

Fiance and I are going to see if I could change my setting, maybe add Pave diamonds to the band? That’s my Christmas gift! I’m just worried that it would make my centre stone look smaller though.

@HappilyEverAfter54: Aahhh I get it now! LoL my fingers are a little chubby and short so I guess that makes my 0.59 look a little bigger than what is actually is! My ring finger is a size 5.

@HappilyEverAfter54:  Funny that weight loss was mentioned.  I have felt like mine looked bigger to me lately and I never realized that the weight loss could be a contributing factor. 

I have lost 10 pounds since I first got the ring so I guess that could make a difference.  The ring still fits though so I guess the size hasn’t changed.  Which is good I really wouldn’t want to have to pay to do that again!
