I like the suggestions that are already on here. What I've heard of people doing, for short term, is buy one of those thin cheap rings, in the smaller size you need, and wear it above your wedding ring to keep it on. It's inexpensive and you can always keep the "spare" ring for times when you can't or don't want to wear your "real one." Good luck. Being healthier is a good reason to have to size down your ring. emoticon

I know a women's ring you can buy a ring guard. I would think they would have them for men's rings too.

I love SparkPeople

That is good to know about the little gold beads, I'm going to have that done. Right now, I have a skinny little band I wear as a ring guard, but it's uncomfortable sometimes.

When I was in high school, girls who were "going steady" would wind adhesive tape around the inside of their boyfriend's class ring to keep it on their fingers. The bigger the wad of tape, the cooler it looked. Thank God that is no longer a fashion. I have had little gold beads soldered into the band (like that article mentioned) which keeps my diamond from falling off. I can't have it resized because my old lady knuckles are too big. If you are looking for a temporary solution, you can buy a cheap temporary ring and wear the real one on a chain around your neck until you can find a trustworthy goldsmith.

A couple of years ago my husband had surgery and the hospital made him remove his wedding ring, then lost it. They paid for a new one, but it isn't the same. You don't want to chance losing the real thing.

The quick temporary solution is to wind a bit of tape around one spot, to make it tighter. Not a great solution, but it won't fall off when you wash your hands. (Mine did that a few weeks ago.) Here's an article on using a bandage to do this:

Long-term, definitely get it sized down.

There are some weird little metal inserts you can buy, but I personally find them uncomfortable - they're called ring guards -

I lost my wedding ring because it was so loose it just flew off who-knew-where.

Bought another one, found the original one, but wear 'em both, using the tinier ring to hold the other one on my finger...lol

I had my wedding ring enlarged after 4 years of marriage, because I had enlarged.

I then lost weight prior to moving to Taiwan. The Atkins diet. I got down to about 70 KG. But I gained a kg or 2 for the past 12 years. a year and half ago I started losing kgs and have had them off for a while.

back to the point, my wedding ring is loose. When I go back to the states next year I will get it resized down again. But until then I am looking for a solution to keep it secure. It is precious to me...
