Finger size?
I know this is a stupid question but it has been bothering me.

Is .25 of a ring size a significant difference? I'm currently a 5.75 and am trying to lose weight. When I was married, at my lowest weight, I was a ring size 5.5. I'm buying a ring at my current finger size. If I succeed at going down to my wedding day weight, will the 5.75 be too lose? I am getting an engraved band so having it sized isn't really any option. The prudent thing would have been to buy the ring after I lost weight but I'm far too impatient to wait! Angel Plus I want to enjoy life now and not wait for that special weight loss number to live, KWIM?

In my opinion, a .25 size difference is minuscule and I would not worry about it. Also, better slightly larger than tight.

It will be loose but "too" loose, I doubt. You can always but sizing beads in it.

This. I usually don't notice a huge difference in rings sized .25 up or down from my normal size.

One day, I'll be a crazy old lady weighed down by all my baubles and it will be glorious.

My "winter" ring finger size is a 7, but I do a 7.25 so I can comfortably wear them in the summer, since my fingers swell like a Pillsbury biscuit in the summer here. Blush

I would suggest you go with your current size as @jenncent said, and do sizing beads to allow for when your fingers go down in size due to weight loss, as well for the summers if they swell in heat also.

I don't really notice a difference between .25 either. Plus if I wear more than 1 ring on the same finger I like them being a little bigger.

RE: Finger size?
to me, it depends on the ring...if it is an E ring with a large or high center stone, .25 can make a difference, if it is a band then NBD!

On other sites, I am aka JadoreDiamonds or ArtdecoLover71 but trying to keep it to one name now :-)

And if it's still a tad loose you could always add an extra band. Wink

RE: Finger size?
I only notice a 1/2 size diff. 0.25 would not even register to me.

I get distracted by shiny things
