You could have sizing beads put in by a local jeweler, or you could go to Claire’s and buy some plastic sizers (little plastic bits that encase the bottom of the ring for a more snug fit). I’ve used the ones at Claires myself, and they worked great until I could get the ring sized!

Tibbs:  I stopped by a Kay Jewelers really quick the day after FI proposed and had a ring guard put on for about $15. It definitely did the job and was comfortable! You can stop into pretty much any jeweler to have one added and takes them like 1 minute to put it on your ring

Tibbs:  I hated the ring gaurd, honestly. I guess it depends on your hands. I had bumps put in. I know it sucks going back twice, but it makes it so much easier. They are easy enough for the jeweler to put on and take off whenever you need to permanantly. It took me about 2 days, but now I don’t notice them at all.

Just get a $3 pack of rubber ring snuggies from Walmart . There’s several sizes in a pack and their more comfortable than the metal ring guards. Metal guards can scratch your ring and arnt easy to take off and put on yourself.

Tibbs:  When I needed a ring sized down 1 size, I just had a jeweler put in a ring guard. Any jeweler can do it and it takes only a couple mins. The ring I used it for (my class ring) actually couldn’t be sized down, so I used the ring guard for about a year and it never bothered me.

I had to get a pack because I’ve lost about 30 pounds. Literally like $2.97 for a bunch of them and yes, they’re comfortable!

Are sizing beads comfortable?  Looking at pictures, it doesn’t look like it would be.

My husbands wedding band was too big, but due to the intricate design of the ring, and it being platinum – we took it to the jeweller who put a gold sheath (think a bit like a second ring, but super thin and pressed to the inside of the proper ring) on the inside of the ring, which can only be removed by the jeweller. It’s perfect! Looks amazing, and you would never know that it wasn’t meant to be there.
