Im hoping you will have an answer to my question. What are my options, my e-ring is about a half size to big and cant be resized so im hoping you ladies will know what I can do!
ETA: Also adding the balls to the inside of the ring is not an option

@FutureMrsRoos: You can add sizing beads or a sizing bar inside the ring. For a temporary fix, you can use a plastic ring sizer (or “ring snuggie”) from Claire’s.

You can put an insert ring on the inside, or just a couple little studs, to make the inside of the ring fit tighter. I have a couple friends who have done this and it works fine! The ring is slightly bulkier than if it were resized but not a biggie.

My e-ring is sterling silver and I have sizing beads inside of it. I think I spent about $15 to get it done? Super cheap and an easy fix. 🙂

A few questions – why can’t it be sized? Why can’t you put sizing beads on the inside?
I think your only other option would be to add more metal to the inside of the ring (thus making your ring thicker and tighter circumference without changing the outside shape of it, if that makes sense).

@Mrs. Fireworks: Maybe it’s an eternity band? That’s my guess
I was going to say the metal bead things on the inside, but that’s basically been covered already. Hope you figure something out, OP.

I agree with Mrs. Fireworks, a jeweler can most likely add some metal to the inside. From looking at pics of your ring, it seems like it can be re-sized, why did the jeweler say it couldn’t? One thing to keep in mind, when you wear it with a wedding band, it will feel tighter. A half size isn’t much at all, if you can wait until you get your wedding band, it might be perfect.

@AP1976: Absolutely – adding a wedding band will make it feel more snug.

Long story short is I cannot alter this ring at all without voiding the warranty on the side stones. I have to take it back to the jeweller who sold the ring but they are accross the county and I wanted to see if i had any other options untill I got my wedding band.

Could you mail it to someone you trust across the country and have them bring it into the jewler? Or mail it directly to the jewler? It wouldn’t be an option I like, but I would hate to lose my ring even more.

Why don’t you get a sizing plate? It’s a little peice of metal that a jewlery can attach to the inside of your ring (it has these little holders on the sides that latch around your ring on the sides). I have tiny fingers so I use these all the time! It’s not terribly pretty but it totally works as a temporary solution!

@FutureMrsRoos: Mailing it to the original jeweler would be easy actually, just have them use their own insurance for you (you pay them out of pocket for them to use the insurer/carrier they use most often). Or insure it with Fedex, there are several safe ways to send jewelry, you just need to ask your jeweler what they prefer. That seems to make the most sense, they will definitely be able to size that ring. Or, as mentioned, if you can live with slightly bigger size, it will be better with your wedding band.

This is what the sizers PPs have mentioned look like:
They hook on the inside of your ring, and come in any metal (any karat gold, platinum, silver, etc… not sure about palladium though).
I’m willing to bet that once you have your wedding band, the two of them will fit jsut fine on your finger. Standard practice when soldering rings together is to size them up 1/4 to 1/4 size since it’s harder to get a thicker ring on. Even if you don’t solder, just having them both on at the same time will make them fit snugger (more “snugly”?? what’s the right word here lol?)
