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.
No one ever got up in the morning wishing she'd eaten more the night before.
