I got myself a topaz ring back in June that was a celebration of my new singledom. When I got it, I had it sized from the standard 7 all rings come in now to a 6. Not long after I got it, it seemed a bit too big; however, being a top-heavy ring with a thin band, I didn't really think much of it. Them it went in the drawer because one of the tiny diamonds fell out of it. This was probably in August or so.
I finally took it back to Macy's to have the diamond repaired (luckily I bought the service plan), and I asked to have it re-sized as well. The lady pulled out the little sizing rings to see what to size it to, and the 5.5 slipped right onto my finger. WOW! I can't even remember the last time I could wear a 5.5 ring -- probably about 15 years ago. When I was skinny, I wore a 5 on my ring finger, so maybe I'll be back there again!
