    I actually had the same problem & was torn about getting it resized a bit smaller, but our jeweler actually had a neat idea...they can actually put these tiny little "rubberish" balls (2 of them & they can't barely even see them & they are clear in color) in the bottom inside of the ring so it fits snugger, but they sort of mold to your fingers, so like if you cold & fingers are smaller it keeps a tight fit, and then can relax when your fingers decide to swell...then there is no permanent resizing of the ring since like the ladies said in previous posts that during pregnancy or later in life our fingers seem to swell & then you can just take the "balls" out!!! :) Hopefully this is an option for you at a jeweler nearby!

    It works great!

      Whoops, sorry ladies I'm alittle slow this morning! This idea has already been disussed so excuse the repeat!!! But I agree that the beads/balls do work great!

          Did not even occur to me that that sounded funny til I read it in your post. I am laughing out loud!

          My ring is bigger too and the thing I am worried about is loosing it in the ocean. My friend lost hers on her honeymoon cause it was little too big. I actually just thought about that last night and now I think I am going to take mine in today to get it downsized! I am just having trouble with the thought of not having it on my finger for a week...:-)

            I am so glad I am not the only one...Afetr years of playing basketball and catching the ball with my fingers instead of my hands, my knucles are crazy and all out of whack. I would probably be a 6.5, but with my injured knuckle on my ring finger I am a 7.

            Dean tried to get me a 10 (probably thinking closer to my shoe size) and the jeweler looked at him like he was crazy!!

                I had my ring sized also but it still spins. I haven't worn it in a week I may have to try the balls. As the jeweler told me that it can't be sized any smaller. I think it's like a 3.5 .

                  Just an FYI, if you get your ring resized a lot, it can wear down the ring and get thin. I had my resized a couple of times and that is what happened to mine and then it broke. I would keep it a little loose for those days when you decide to have children(if you do that is) and your hands swell, you may never get the ring off and then they would have to cut it off.
