My husband doesn’t have this issue, but I think that the spacer idea is a wonderful solution. 

Would moisturizing or washing his hands before putting his ring on allow you to order the more comfortable “wearing” size?

For me, the key would be for him to be able to leave it on all the time once on.  

For that, I suggest getting a slightly thinner ring (3mm or 4mm instead of 6mm or 10mm) so that it’s comfortable and moisture will not collect under it when left on in the shower etc… (I have a wide band and I get “band aid” finger where it gets all pruny underneath if I leave it on in the shower).

Get a comfort fit inside, and a snug size.  It will take a bit of effort to get it over the knuckle, but once there he shouldnt have to take it off.

Some jewelers may be able to order in special rings that are actually hinged and spring loaded and “snap on” to the finger rather than sliding over the knuckle. These rings are made for people with arthritis or really big knuckles/thinner fingers in general. If you can imagine a ring seperating at a hinge and clipping back together around the finger then you get the idea. I’ve seen several of these types of rings in person and the hinge is not obvious, altho online it looks like it is.

RInglock and Abrecht make such rings. It seems like most of these rings are made of gold tho, not sure if they can be made w/ tungsten. May be worth exploring…

I agree with @MissNoodles:

6mm is really wide.  he might be able to squeeze a smaller size ring over his knuckle if it’s narrower, like 4mm. 

also have him try on comfort fit bands, he might be able to slide smaller rings over his knuckles that way. 

finally, buy some cheap stainless steel “trial” rings. that way he can wear them around and if they don’t work for him, you are only out $20 or so.

I have a stainless steel comfort fit band that was only $5 and I rather like it. it’s nice quality.
