They sell them at Walmart in the jewelry section, they’re called ring snuggies

They sell ring adjusters (I think .97 for three at Walmart) that you can use.  I bought some for another ring and didn’t much care for them.

As a more permanent solution, my rings have sizing beads.  My weight has been through a good 10 lb range since I’ve had my rings beaded, and I haven’t had any trouble.

I cant stand those thick plastic ring snuggies… I wrap clear fishing line around mine to size it for the winters. It takes it down a quarter size, just enough for it to stop spinning.

@pinkshoes:  What an awesome tip!  I haven’t wanted to resize my ring bc in the winter it spins, but summer time in Florida makes my fingers swell up a bit.  Ugh, it is already sooooo HOT!  I’m going to have to remember that for the 1.5 months of winter we have here, lol.

For most people, changes of 5-7 lbs wouldn’t make much difference in how a ring fits. You might already know that it does for yourself, but I wanted to put that out there just in case.

 @MamaMegs721: hahaha, yeah, I’m going to FL next week and need to take it off, otherwise I cant get my ring off. It’s still only in the 70s here up in boston.

 @Milk and Honey:  thanks, my jeweler was pretty surprised by it too.  Here’s a sort of picture explaintion I drew up a while back.  It’s a little tough to get started and keep the wire staying put and tight at the beginnign, but once you get it going, its all good.  Start with the string where it says pull, follow the arrows, that’s how it’ll go.  Make a loop with maybe an inch sticking out and then start to wrap it back tightly on itself toward the loop (where it says tuck).  Once you wrap back far enough take the end where it says cut, and stick it through the loop you have.  Pull on the pull end (it should be hard to pull since your wraps should be very tight, might need pliers) until the loop is about half way through.  The two end should be tightly secured under your loops now.  Cut the ends, and youre done!  Hope this helps!

Snuggies, or some scotch tape, or you can make you own sizing beads with a hot glue gun.

I’ve seen a small bandage used in a pinch.  That fishing line idea is awesome btw.

My e ring is too big to fit my finger. We didn’t want to get it resized for the reason of the change in weather and change in my weight over the years. So we got a ring guard. I went to the flea market, and the jewelry store had them for $5 each. They are gold and it’s adjustable!

This is not my ring but that is what my ring guard looks like!

I took mine to the jewelry store Fiance bought it from and they put on a sizer for free until their backlog was smaller and we could send it in for sizing. It actually needs to be resized again, but that’s another story.

I’d be careful with wire, bandages, and maybe even the fishing line because you don’t want your ring to get all scratched up, or gunked up with bandage adhesive.  The PP’s picture of a ring guard is exactly what I have, and it took a few days to get used to it, but I love it now.  You should have that “installed” at a jeweler and don’t try to install or resize a ring guard at home because if you don’t do it right, it can scratch the ring.
