How do you stop ring from moving or turning?

My ring has this little metal bar in it to make it smaller (its too big and needs to be resized). It’s good because I can bend the bar to make it smaller/bigger to account for fingers swelling and shrinking. I need to get it resized eventually though.

jolieqe:  I have seen these little “bumps” if you will soldered onto the bottom of the ring to keep it from turning. I have no clue what their called though! I have heard those work… Maybe go back to your jeweler to find out!

jolieqe:  I have lost a little bit of weight and that combined with the cooler weather means my fingers have shrunk. And my poor halo is spinning like crazy, and driving me crazy in the process.

I was thinking of running over to the jeweler this weekend and asking them to put some sizing beads on the inside of my band, to make it stay in place more firmly.

But, I don’t want to deal with naked finger anxiety for a few days while they’re working on it, lol. So for now, I’m going to deal with the spinning ring.

jolieqe:  When I got my set soldered together my ering stopped spinning completely, I think that extra 2.5 mm helped make the band thick enough that it didn’t really had a chance to spin. On occassion it will shift (when my fingers get cold), but for the most part it doesn’t move anymore.  What about that?

I personally have a european shank which basically means my setting has a square bottom so it really keeps it from spinning

Is it just your engagement ring? My engagement ring is loose and sometimes turns. I think thinner bands tend to move around more. My jeweler said that was good because it wI’ll be tighter when I add a wedding band. I’m not married yet, but have tried wearing the two bands together and he was right. I don’t want to make the engagement ring smaller since it will be tighter when I start wearing the set.

jolieqe:  no problem! I took a few pictures, my iPhone camera is not focusing properly but hopefully you can see it a bit. If not just let me know and I’ll try something else tomorrow. 

As you can see, the bar is bent in the middle- it was straight across when I got the ring but I bent the bar so it would fit more comfortably. The bar isn’t going to stay forever, but resizing isn’t an option right now and at the moment it’s fine, no discomfort or anything.

I have the same problem – big knuckle and skinny base. I had sizing beads soldered on and I’m really happy with the result. The ring is very easy to put on, I can’t feel the beads when I wear the ring and it no longer spins around. I think I paid about $150 to have it done, including rhodium re-plating.   No more sore knuckles!

maybe it’s just me, but I’ve always loved the look of a ring that is a little big. I feel like it makes people look sophisticated and cool and their fingers look slender. a ring that stays in place 100% of the time makes fingers look a bit chubby.

I got the sizing beads as well. Mine are closer together than AussieEncore and I pretty much can’t feel mine either. The only time I can is when I am using the machines at the gym things like that. You may want to ask your jeweler to space the beads or a bit so it’s a little more comfortable.

Mine fits so much better with the wedding ring next to it now. But I don’t really have big knuckles, so I’m not sure if that will apply to you.
