Hi everyone, I have a question about ring size. I know this seems like a silly request but I would hate to get this wrong so here goes. I had no idea what size my ring finger is although I already wear a ring on it, we bought it so many years ago I can''t remember the size. When we went to a jeweler this past weekend to look at diamonds and get a better idea of what we liked I asked if I could get my finger sized so I know what size to have my boyfriend get. The woman handed me a bunch of little circles on a ring and told me to start trying sizes. It seems like there are so many tiny fingers on here but when trying sizes I found out that I was a size 8. Here''s the thing, I asked if there was any way to check what the ring I currently wear is and she checked for me and said it was an 8.5. At that point I wasn''t sure what was right, I could get the 8 sizer on my finger easily but I am worried it will be too small at times. The little metal rings of the sizer are so thin it is easy for it to be comfortable when I get it all the way on but it seems like a thicker band, or an e-ring and a wedding band would be different. I wear my current 8.5 ring all the time (it is a thin band) and a lot of the time it spins and is loose, especially this time of year because of the cold weather, but in the summer and when I am running around and hot it can be pretty tight. It never hurts but it is a thin band and I know when my fingers are swollen it is harder to get on and off. The jeweler said I should go ahead and get an 8 because engagement rings are top heaving and it may spin if its a little big but I am worried that it won''t fit right. I feel like an 8 may be too small in hot weather and an 8.5 will be too big in cooler weather. I live in NJ so I deal with both and don''t want to have my ring slipping an sliding sometimes or cutting off my circulation at other times. I have very little jewelry buying experience so I was wondering if any of you have had the same problem and what your did or if you can offer your opinion of which you think would be the best bet. Thanks for listening and thanks in advance for your advice!
