Why can’t your ring be sized?

This happened to me once with a ring I loved.

I just went to Walmart and bought these things they call “Ring Adjusters” 

Here’s a link to the item but you have to go into your store and to the jewelry department to purchase them. They are really common so just find an employee and they should know what you’re talking about.


Hope that helps!

You could try sizing beads, put in by a jeweller:

or you can buy plastic ring sizers which are more temporary.

I would not recommend plastic ring adjusters because they are typically made of PVC which is not healthy for you. If you can find them in silicone or PETE then that should be fine from a health standpoint (I personally haven’t seen that though).

I like the idea of sizing beads (as a PP showed) or a sizing bridge added to the inside of the band. If that is out of budget or you want something more temporary, I would neatly wrap thread around the back of the band. Since it’s an important ring I would probably go with a nice vibrant colored silk thread, but cotton thread would work well too.

I had a “bridge” put into my ring.  The idea is similar to sizing beads.  My jeweler recommended it since it’s something that can be added and removed (“for when you get REALLY pregnant”) without compromising the ring itself.

It looks like this:

And you really can’t see it when the ring is on.

@jdhall89:  I think our rings are twins, lol.

Well, fraternal twins, mine is yellow gold with a .5 carat center stone,  yours looks bigger.
