Ring too big
Wednesday, December 13, 2006
Once upon a time my ring size was a 7. I must've mentioned that to Dan before, not completely on accident ;-) He gave me a promise ring (not an engagement ring, but it'll do for now) for my birthday in May of this year, in a size 7. To my astonishment, it was WAY too big! I guess I don't wear rings that regularly so I didn't notice that even my hands have lost weight! I took it to a jeweler and they had to size it down to a 5 I think (or maybe it was a 5 and a half). Well the last couple months it keeps getting looser and looser. It's really annoying, actually. It's not to the point of falling off, but I hate it when the diamonds get between my fingers when I'm trying to type! I really don't want to get it resized AGAIN, especially since I've read (and experienced) that your fingers are smaller in cold weather and they swell in hotter weather. It may be too loose now in December but if I resize it again then I might not be able to put it on at all when Spring/Summer comes.
I randomly ran across a thread about this in a sparkteam which I don't even belong to (slowcooking for fast lives). Someone suggested buying a Ring Guard. I went to the website (http://www.viewithere.com/rin
g_guard) and ordered one (size small, in yellow gold). It arrived last night and I managed to put it on my ring with a pair of needlenosed pliars. It's so awesome! I can barely even feel it, it's not too tight or poking me at all. It matches my ring perfectly and is barely noticeable unless you look very closely at the palm of my hand. And, most importantly, my ring stays in place without slipping and sliding all over! It was pretty cheap too (which it should be, for such a small piece of cheap bendy metal). Only time will tell if it gets rusty or causes my finger to turn green or anything like that. But so far I'm really impressed!
