Is my ring too tight?

Is my ring too tight? It really is not uncomfortable and I can move the ring (spin it) freely though it is not spinning “on its own.” If I push on the bottom it Pushes up. But it does seem to be giving me a little hug. It is also about 1000% humidity so that may be playing into it; however it does feel snugger or “huggier” than my other rings (although many of my rings are a tad too big and spin freely). It leaves a tiny mark on my finger but so does my wedding band which today is a bit tight also.

It does not look too tight in my opinion. Very pretty ring - the color is beautiful!

Thanks for the thoughts! It fits perfectly on my left hand middle, but is a tiny bit snugger on my right.

@LilAlex — my age young or my age old lol ? :lol: Does it look too tight age aside?

Yes it is hot and particularly, super humid. Yesterday about 85 with about 95% humidity. My other rings were also on the snug side. It was snug getting it off but other rings were also which is less usual.

Trying to decide if i should ask for it to be stretched out just like 1/8 a size, or leave it as is. I just received it — maybe I should wear it a few days and see if it fluctuates. I wasn’t sure it even can be stretched a bit, but guessing maybe.

@lmyracle I have those too so if I had it sized up just a tad—I can use that.

I am not even sure I can have it stretched—the band is engraved—but I think just to stretch it just a bit might be what I would like. However, the fact that I can spin it—maybe, it doesn’t need resized at all. I am trying to decide if that is needed based on how it looks and fits.

@LilAlex -- no worries, I wasn't offended, it's funny. I was just not sure what you meant.

Okay, for now I am leaving as is. I messaged Daniel M (who made it) this morning just to ask and he said it would be easy to move it up like 1/8 size if needed; however I am going to wear it for a bit and see. This afternoon it is not quite as humid/hot and it's a tiny bit looser and moving a bit on it's own so I am not sure it needs it. I'll wear it in different situations and see but felt better knowing it would be easy to do if needed and that I can wear it around before deciding. Thanks for opinions!

Ring looks great from where I sit. My rings fit much more snug in summer,and I can lose up to a full ring size in winter ( :oops2: yeah I don't know either?) I do have some rings which I never wear in warm weather as they won't fit (LOL)

Congratulations on your beautiful ring! I have some that fit on different fingers depending on the season. Glad you decided to just wear and enjoy it for now. It looks great on you!

Only you can know if it is too tight.
How can we know what it feels like to you?

If you think it's too tight, then it is.

Really unless we see finger "muffin top" which you dont have btw and can be caused due to heat/the weather, pregnancy, and weight gain then we honestly wont be able to tell from a photo that your ring is too tight.

Since you seem very worried about it maybe have them resize it up by .25

I personally have been sizing mine up by that amount lately for ring projects as me and beau wanna have some more chillens and judging by my last pregnancy...Ill gain quite a bit!
