Amazing! Thank you for sharing this. I will try this with my rings with winter when my finger shrinks

Thanks for sharing! I’ve been wanting to do this to a few rings 🙂

wow….how did you come up with that? I’m so not “crafty” like this and I don’t think there is anyway I could figure it out!! LOL Thanks for the suggestion though…I could really use it on some of my rings and I hate those little plastic ring sizers.

@pinkshoes:  just tried it and it works like a charm. It beats the hell out of having to send it from Toronto to Hawaii to size it again! Thanks so much for this 🙂

pinkshoes:  This is amazing and I just tried it but my attempt was an epic fail.  I think I need more wire and I’ll give it another go =) Thanks so much for posting this.

pinkshoes:  I managed to do this, but how do you get it off without scratching the ring when you want to remove it? The only way I could think was an xacto knife to cut it off, but then you risk damaging the ring. 

GREAT tutorial by the way!

luckyiminlove:  I read some of the reviews and people said it felt sticky. Did you have that experience? How long does it last?

lilsweetie:  So it was a little tricky getting the hang of it and it took me at least 4 or 5 tries for me to get it on my ring the way I wanted (my band is only 1.8 mm) but eventually I nailed it and it will first feel sticky for a bit but goes away after your first 5 minutes or so. I uv’d it to stay and then I left it alone overnight and was ready to wear the next morning.

I’ve had it on for about 3 weeks now and its still going strong. I haven’t had to reapply since nailing it the last time.

pinkshoes:  I know this is old but just wanted to say thanks! This works like a charm! I got some .5mm bead cord. It’s a little rubbery and stretchy. It works great to grip my finger and not spin! Loving this trick!

What a good idea and great tutorial! Can anyone who has tried this tell me if the bottom of the ring with the wire wrapped around it stays wet longer after washing your hands? (Wet rings drive me crazy.) 

A much more temporary quick and inexpensive fix I sometimes use is the clear elastic pony tail holders. I just tie it onto the bottom of the ring (loop it around and pull it through) and then slide both the ring and the pony tail holder onto my finger. You can also use them to keep two rings together and prevent spinning. If you buy the variety pack with three different sizes of elastics, one of them should fit.
