Nope. I deal with the spinning.

I have found that now that I have a wedding band, the e-ring spins a bit less.

Have you thought about adding sizing balls to your ring? It’ll keep it from spinning without having to make your ring smaller.

No, I just deal with it. I was thinking about getting sizing balls added this year.

I wear a ring snuggie. You can get them on amazon, only a few dollars for a pack.

My fingers easily go down a couple sizes when I’m cold but I just deal with the spinning. This is the first I’ve heard of sizing balls. That sounds like something I might look into.

You could always get ring sizing beads added to your ring in the colder months and taken off for the warmer months. Here’s a picture so you know what I’m talking about:

 ETA – sorry, I missed that this was suggested by a pp poster!

This is my first winter with my e-ring since I just got it in July. I do notice spinning now if I’m in a really cold room or something, but I think I’ll just get a metal ring guard to add to my ring so I can wear it all the time.

Sizing balls were added to my ring because it kept spinning.  Now it stays put but still gives my finger room to swell/shrink in different seasons.

(sorry this picture is so yellow, but you get the idea!)

This was my first attempt at sizing my ring for the winter, but you get the idea. I used some jewelry wire and jewelry pliers to make it…oh, I would guess 1/2 size smaller? (I don’t have a picture of the way it looks now, but it’s a bit tidier.) I am aware that the metal wire might do something to the ring over time, but after this winter I will examine it closely to see if I need a different long-term solution.

You could also get another ring in a smaller size to wear on top of your e-ring? (Or, I can’t tell if that’s what you were suggesting in your original post. I thought you were suggesting getting a replacement ring.)

No. I wear stack bands though, so it’s usually pretty secure.

mine just shifts a little (and is a bit snug in warm weather), but i think my fingers only vary with temperature around half a size.  (my ring is a 5…i think i’m more like a 4.75 in winter and a 5.25 in summer.)

Mine always spins so the colder weather isn’t much of a difference. However, it is IMPOSSIBLE for me to wear gloves and I am dreading my first full winter without the ability to cover up. The downfall of a larger diamond.

my ring is not very topheavy so it doesn’t spin as much. one advantage of a smaller stone 🙂

one thing I noticed- it spins more when my hands are dry (and they are more dry in the winter). sounds weird, but there is nothing for the metal to “stick” to.  so it helps to keep your skin moisturized!
