 Does your Ring get loose in Fall/Winter?

People around me, especially my girlfriends always complain about the ring becomes too tight in summer and too loose in Fall/Winter. As a person who loves to wear rings, I'd like to share the tip about this topic.

Apart from your weight gain/loss, temperature is another big factor that makes your ring becomes too tight or too lose. When the weather gets colder, the size of our fingers tends to shrink and thus the ring that used to fit well becomes loose! This problem is especially true for people who love bigger ring (like me) as its weight tends to increase the gravity.

"3 Tips to shop for Rings that fit all season"

1) Aware of the season: When shop for your ring, you need to aware of the season at the moment. If the weather is very warm, your finger has high chance of being swollen, and the ring which is a "littttttle too tight" might be good for you. Vice versa, if the weather is cold, you will want to allow your ring to be a little loose.

2) Left or Right
If you're right-handed, your right fingers tend to be bigger than your left's (and vice versa). If you don't really mind about wearing your ring on left or right, you will have a better chance of being able to wear your favorite ring comfortably at any time of the year. In a warm weather, the right-handed person should shop for the ring that fits her LEFT finger. Because when the weather gets colder & your fingers (of both hands) shrink, you can easily switch the ring to fit your bigger right finger. In the cold Fall/Winter, shop for the ring that fits RIGHT finger as it will fit the left when the weather gets warmer (& your finger gets bigger) later.

3) Aware of your weight
For most women, weight can fluctuate frequently. So know your stage before buying the ring so that you won't have problem of fixing the size everytime the pin on your scale goes up or down.

Happy Fall!
