@oxstardust421xo:  Yes. As I type this, my e-ring is pointed sideways, at the wall instead of sitting up on my finger. I constantly have to twist my e-ring and wedding band into the correct positions, and, soon after, they both spin again.

I don’t like it at all.  However, I can tolerate this more than I could too-tight rings, and I do not want to have my rings soldered.

Mine spins to the side a lot, but it was sized bigger than I normally wear.  It is gonna have to go down because I feel the need to hold it in place with my thumb.

@oxstardust421xo:  Mine stays put for the most part. I am a lefty so it does move when I write which can be quite annoying though.

Mine used to spin but I my jeweler put two little metal balls into the bottom of the band and it keeps it from spinning…I think they’re called sizing beads. I had the ring sized appropriately and then had him put the beads in just to stop the spinning. Maybe look into those?

@oxstardust421xo:  You can fix the top heaviness by having small little balls soldered inside the band 🙂

A lot has to do with the design… in my experience Solitaires are a lot more prone to doing this because they are top heavy

(My first marriage circa 1980, I wore a solitaire… and it would have spun more had I not opted for a Ring Set with a Euro Shank which is flat / weighted to the bottom)

I highly recommend Euro Shanks for anyone looking to buy a Solitaire that they don’t want to solder to their WBand.

My current ERing doesn’t spin whatsover… I attribute this to the fact that I wear it a tad snug (not tight) and the weight of the diamonds are more evenly distributed.

Lol, now my Sparkly Half-Eternity WBand… ya it moves over the course of the day.  And it bugs me, but as someone who has 3 Rings (1 ERing & 2 WBands) I like being able to wear 1, 2, or 3 rings at a time and mix & match / stack them as the mood strikes me, so I won’t be soldering any rings together.

Hope this helps,

@oxstardust421xo:  no, it’s all over the place.  same with my rhr, ugh.  I was half-tempted to put one of those double sided, fabric sticky things on the inside the other day for it to stop spinning.

Mine tends to spin during the winter. But it’s better now with my wedding band.
