How do you know if the ring size is too small?

Hi! All of you seem so knowledgeable about everything!


I went to the jeweler to get my ring sized and the only problem I have
with getting a smaller size is that it makes my finger fat looking and
it leaves a dent on my finger from wearing it.

It's like when you wear a really tight skirt and your fat rolls over
it. That's how I think it looks like. lol. Yes, the salesman was
laughing at me. :bigsmile:

But the dent is also incredibly noticeable. He was concerned about
making sure the ring doesn't fall off. I was more concerned about how
it left a mark on my finger.

My question is...is having a dent normal? Does having the dent mean
it's too tight? :confused:

Thanks for helping! I appreciate it!
Sam

LOL! All I can say is that I don't like the "dented" look and it seems uncomfortable. I don't have a dent. I do have sizing balls in my ring to keep it from spinning.

I think that is a very valid question to ask. I have asked about sizing my ring and gotten a variety of responses. What I have learned is that everyone is different about how tight they want their ring. My jewler likes her almost loose, while I want to have to push mine slightly to get it over my knuckle. I say go with what makes you comfortable. Also think about whether your fingers swell in the summer like a lot of peoples do. If it is already tight, it may be very uncomfortable with any swelling of your fingers (that's my nursing input of the day!
