I know that some people who suffer arthritis have rings with hinges that clasp over their fingers instead of sliding on. Maybe that could be a solution for you

I guess I’m confused as to how this is even a problem? Typically rings are not sized based on how long your fingers are, just the circumference around them so I don’t understand how the length of your fingers would even play a role. Is your knuckle a lot wider than where your ring will actually sit?

Is it possible someone could make a custom oblong ring?  I would imagine it can be done pretty easily…

ringcrazy :  so basically your finger is oval, not round. I don’t think it should be impossible. I’d say they just need to split the difference, make a size 6 and then squish it a bit, into an oval shape.

ringcrazy :  Gotcha! I would look into having something custom made to your finger. You’ll need an oval setting instead of a round.

What about these little ring bumps of gold on the inside bottom of them to fill a little space. If your finger is wider than taller in circumference perhaps that could help?

Either make an oval ring as others have said, or maybe put sizing beads on the inside of the skinny part to sort of fill in that gap? It should be pretty easy for a jeweler to make an oval ring though!

What about a Euro shank?

Another vote for a custom ring and/or the sizing beads- maybe they’d have to put them on the sides -closer to 9 and 3 rather than at 5 and 7.

nkotb :  I was going to suggest the exact same thing!

I think people suspect it’s an easy fix because we’re not entirely sure what you mean. Perhaps a picture of your hand would help? 

My grandmother had sizers on her wedding ring, and they were kinda on springs so they could stretch… Again, I’m not sure what exactly your finger looks like/what the problem is given your description, so that might be ridiculous.
