How should an engagement ring fit?
Quote this post and reply to it Post#1 @ 04-27-05 , 07:37 PM


Hi Everyone.

I just had my engagement ring custom made. The band has diamond channel settings on the side. I love the ring, but I am not sure if the fitting is right. A size 4 was too big and a size 3.5 was too small, so we made it a 3.75. I know, I have really small fingers. Once I get it pass my knuckle, I can rotate the ring aroung my finger. Does this mean it is too loose? I don't want the ring to be too tight either, turning my finger blue. How snugged is a ring suppose to fit? Should I have it resized? Can jewelers make it a tad smaller without cutting the ring? Is there another alternative?

Sounds as if the ring has been sized correctly. I would wait until the weather heats up in July-August and our skin expands before making a final decision.

If at that time, it still rolls around on your finger, take it back for slight tightening.

Hi,

Welcome to DT.



Once I get it pass my knuckle, I can rotate the ring aroung my finger.Does this mean it is too loose?

No.

I don't want the ring to be too tight either, turning my finger blue. How snugged is a ring suppose to fit?

Assuming it is not 'falling off loose' or 'getting stuck tight', it is totally personal preference.

Should I have it resized?

If you just received the ring, I would wait and see how the ring fits over the course of a week or two. During hotter months, the ring will be tighter. Hands can vary day to day as well.


Can jewelers make it a tad smaller without cutting the ring?

Yes.

Is there another alternative?


Yes, they include soldering additional small pieces of the ring metal into the inside of the shank. These additions may be flat or rounded like a ball (sizing bumps)
