You can have a jeweler put some beads on the inside of the band to help, or if you want something more temporary a lot of people use ring noodles. Just search it on amazon and you’ll find some 🙂

I was coming to suggest a ring tube/noodle. It slips on and keeps it right . It’s usually plastic and doesn’t damage ring.

I hated the ring noodle thing,  but it is a cheap fix you can try and they have them on prime.   It rubbed and irritated the skin around it so I only wore it for a day before I gave up and had it resized,  but mine was a full size too big and I only sized down half a size because I knew we would have a short engagement and wanted to leave room for a wedding band. 

I’ve gotten used to it moving around my finger.  I do think I’ll go down another quarter size,  but am waiting until after the summer starts to do it.

I saw someone on another ring-size board post her “ring springs.”

I like the spring idea, and sizing beads. Mine is a bit top heavy, so it spins. I also have the knuckle issue – it’s a bit bigger than finger. I’m currently using the rubbery ring noodle things from Amazon. I love them and don’t even notice them. I don’t see them as a permanent solution though – still haven’t decided on a wedding band style or if I will even wear the e-ring on my left hand, so for now it works 🙂 I am still waiting on warm weather in Ohio, so I also want to see how much my finger expands in the heat!

I got ring sizers on Amazon. I like the coil ones where it’s one long coil of rubbery material, and you wrap it around the band as many loops as you need to get the right fit. They’re temporary, cheap, and you can apply and adjust them yourself.

Mine was sized at a 4.25 when I really should have had it sized down to a 4.  Instead of sizing it again and possibly compromising the pave diamonds, I just got beads put in.  Helps with the fit and I really like how it keeps my ring from spinning.

The rubbery noodles (I think it’s called ring snuggies?) vs the coil ones which one is better? Or not much difference?

erdbh :  they have to be soldered on.  I know you are located outside the US,  but I really think your best bet is to locate a local jeweler and ask them to do it. IDK if you are located in your home country,  but if not,  if ask local friends for advice.

knotyet :  I second the coil idea. They are cheap, and they usually come in a pack with various sizes (some 3mm, some 2mm, etc.), so you can play with them or combine them and find the perfect fit. You can always add sizing beads at a later date, but I’d recommend spending at least a summer with the ring at your current size without the beads to see how it fits when your fingers are at their most swollen. Good luck!

I gave up salt and carbs, started working out and my ring does that. I like that it spins lol
