I have read in a couple threads that re-sizing platinum is difficult and might leave a mark if not done correctly. I wanted to see if you all had a couple fresh thoughts on this.

I know that my girlfriend is about a 5 1/2, but I''m not 100% sure. Would it make sense to go 1/4 higher or lower depending on what is easier and less noticable if it needs to be resized - example - if it''s better to trim down, go with a little bigger size?

Thanks, BH

Many of us women experience some finger swelling at certain times so probably a bit bigger would be a better side to err on.

Plus there are easy temporary fixes for larger rings and nothing like that if it is too small.

On the other hand (ha) a ring that's just a little too large can actually come off and get lost, and that would be tragic! (I lost my mother's wedding ring.
Long story.)

However, as Tessa said, there are temporary solutions with too-large settings. Just be careful.
