My husband woke up this morning to find that his ring was missing!! It had slipped off his hand while he was asleep!!
I know tungsten cannot be resized. The ring fit him perfectly when we got it but now he has lost some weight so it is very loose. Going back to our jeweler is an option (though they already told us it was final sale)… I was wondering if you ladies know any other solution?
I heard something about using clear nail polish… does that work?

Can you add sizing balls to tungsten?

My Darling Husband has a tungsten too, and the jeweler said they would just trade them out if it ended up being to big. Do you think thats a possibilty? i’ve never heard of the clear nail polish, that would make me nervous, but like i said i dont know it may work??

I’ve heard that there is a restocking fee, but that you CAN exchange them. I guess it would depend on the place you got it though.

I don’t know if there is much you can do. Tungsten is fairly inexpensive, can you buy a duplicate in a lower size? Then he could have two to switch around depending on how they fit that day. My husband has 4 rings sitting in my jewelry box right now because of this. ha ha

@morganjenkstamwood: My Darling Husband has the same thing! He lost weight too so he had to buy a new ring. But then he put some pounds back on, so he went back to his old ring. Now he’s on a third ring. He keeps getting them from overstock so it’s not like he spent a ton of money.
My Father-In-Law did the clear nail polish thing when the gold on his ring was bothering him, but it really didn’t make it smaller.

We made sure to go through a jeweler that would exchange the ring for life.

Fiance chose tungsten and knows that it will need to be replaced if his size changes. That’s the upside of having a $30 ring!

My husband has one and he’s lost 30lbs since our wedding 8 months ago so his ring size went from a 13 to 11. We just gave our original ring back to the store, they sent out for a new one and we only paid the $25 bucks that a normal resize would cost and they made a whole new one.
Not a huge deal. Just see how much it is to get a new one made.
