Have you considered having two little metal balls soldered on the inside of you ring?  Ithird them added to mine and it really does help stop the spinning.

@raziel1687:  I was going to also so the soldered balls… i always call them speed bumps.  I got a 4.25 as my finger is an actual 4.  I can wear a 4 but if my finger swells its over, and the 4 is hard to get over my knuckle.  the 4.25 is perfect but my plan was the “speed bumps” if it was too big.

If your knuckles are a lot bigger than your finger, it will be impossible to get it to fit over your knuckle and be snug enough not to spin.

I have the same problem 🙁  My ring size is 3.25 but my ring is a 3.5 because it wouldn’t get over my knuckle without some sort of lubricant. I’m currently using a plastic ring snuggie as well and I put it on the ring once it is on my finger and take it off before taking the ring off. It’s a pain but I’m worried that if I resize it won’t fit if I gain weight. I’m planning on getting those metal balls put in eventually because they are much more visually appealing than my current fix.

Same problem here.  I had mine resized down a little bit but when it’s cold my ring still spins.  I’ve never heard of those little ball things, that might be a good solution!

I have the same exact issue! My finger is a 4 but I got a 4.5 bc my knuckles are so big but I have long skinny fingers.. Does anyone know how much the little bumps cost and who will do them?! thanks 🙂

My ring is a little big also – and it’s also a 4.5. It’s not so much bigger that I think it should be a 4, so I’m waiting… I have a feeling it might fit better when the wedding band is underneath it. 

Are you getting a wedding band? Maybe try various widths on with your engagement ring and see if there’s one that fixes the spinning issue? The wider the band, the higher it will push your e-ring up onto the “meaty” part of your finger between the knuckle and your palm. :}

My ring is a size 6, and I’m a size 5 🙁 I’ve been told by multiple jewelers not to resize my ring cause it can ruin the diamonds on the sides. For now I’m using a metal ring guard. FI bought me the plastic snuggies, so I’m going to try those to see which I prefer.

I also have larger knuckles and my ring swirls around on my finger. Since I prefered it to fit very snuggly, I bought ring snuggies as well which I put on after my ring is on my finger. I am going to see how the ring fits in the summer time before I decide whether or not to resize it because my hands swell and shrink depending on my body temperature.

Do the soldered balls help in terms of making the ring smaller while still having it be able to slip over the knuckles?

You may be able to go down 1/4 size. I have skinny fingers too so my knuckles are the biggest part. My ring was a 5.5 and it never fell off but it twirled around so much and got too loose for comfort so I had it taken down 1/4 size and it’s perfect! It’s still on the loose side but I wouldn’t want it to be really snug anyway.

i’m pretty sure any independent jeweler can add sizer bumps. i dunno if chain jewelry stores can. if you have any “local” jewelers in your area, ask them. it shouldn’t cost too much.

@McBezel:  that’s what they’re for. my neighbors growing up, their father is a jeweler. well, was. he sold his storefront a couple years back. he did a lot of the sizer bumps for people who had this issue. it works well (:

I had a similar issue (and similarly sized fingers) and I had a “bridge” put in, which the jeweler said would be more comfortable than the sizing beads.  My ring is so much more comfortable.

 

 

 

You could also see if they could flatten out the bottom of your ring to make it like a soft D shape.  That’ll prevent it from turning but keep the size similar.
