aww I’m sorry!! That is terrible 🙁 can you take a picture of the ring so we can see the damage?

Next time try the dental floss method before going to the ER, then you could probably save your ring. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J0xUN0Kf00w

I’m so sorry. I’ve had to do that in the past. Arthritic knuckles. Now I just leave it on for days if necessary to remove a tight ring. Invariably, nighttime is the least swollen time for me. Did you or the ER try the tooth floss trick first? Again my condolences to you and your ring.

They probably can fix it unless it has a design all around. Can we see a picture of it?

eta above poster and I posted tooth floss remedy at the same time. 🙂

atreyu547:  If it has a sizing bar, I would assume they could fix it. Is it carved or does it have diamonds? Sorry I cant really tell from your picture

Oh yes! You had no choice then. I’m sure someone can put that together for you, but structurally and perhaps aesthetically it won’t be exactly the same. it’s as if it were sized. But heck, you still have your finger and the repairable ring, so it’s all good! Take it in to a reputable jeweler.  My fingers only swell at the joints. Once the rings are on there is even spinning so that is different than your situation. You had to do it! Good thinking And best of luck on the repair.

atreyu547:  It sounds like there was no other choice but to cut it off. I’m glad they were able to get it off so that your finger didn’t get too injured. And the damage to your ring doesn’t look too too bad. I bet a good jeweler can repair it and even size it up a bit (if you need them to) without much of a problem.

I am so sorry, though, that you had to get it cut off. I would be heartbroken if I had to do that. *internet hugs*
