My fingers are too small!

Recommended Posts

I've had my engagement ring since February 2009, but I didn't want to give it up to get it resized. I didn't want a traditional e-ring, so my fiance got me a band as an e-ring. It has 5 diamonds going across and I absolutely love it. We even found a wedding band to match it (has 10 smaller diamonds). Two of the diamonds started to come loose so I *FINALLY* gave up the e-ring to get it fixed and have it resized.

 

Well...the jeweler said it can't be resized to a size 5 because the diamonds will pop out! So now I either have to wear the size 7 with a ring guard or figure out something else to do with it. confused.gif

Any chance you can take the diamonds from your ring and put in a new size 5 band that matches the original your FI picked? I can't think a ring guard would be the best lifetime solution. Good luck.

My friend had those little metal balls put on the inside of her ring to make it smaller and you cant even see it! Can they take it down even a 1/2 or 1 size?

Wow, how have you been wearing a size 7 for so long if you're a 5? My rings fall off if my fingers just shrink up a little or get too tight when they swell, so 2 sizes seems like alot.

 

Anyway, I was going to suggest what someone else said - can't they remove the diamonds and reset them into a smaller setting? Otherwise, I've heard good things about the balls that they weld to the interior of the ring. Not sure if it would do much since it's 2 sizes.

I agree with what others have said...I would look into taking the diamonds out and have them put into a new band that fits you. I mean this is a ring that you are going to wear every day for the rest of your life...it should fit, be comfortable, and look good :)

The balls would be a good option. Or you can have the band redesigned.

There are a lot of jewelry shops out there that do custom bands, that's what I've been looking into for myself. My brother and SIL actually had their bands made from scratch using gold from unused pieces of jewelry family members gave them. If you find a good store I bet they can remake the same ring for you out of the one you have now. Then it would look the same and be from the same source. It's not a cheap option, but for something like that it would be worth the extra cash to me.

Thanks ladies. I've been wearing it with the ring guard, but it's annoying and I definitely can't see myself wearing it with the ring guard forever. If I get the diamonds put into a different band, it won't match my wedding band anymore because the diamonds line up perfectly. I'll ask about the balls...maybe they can resize it to a 6 and then put the balls inside. Otherwise, I may have the e-ring and the wedding band combined into one ring.

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
