    Sounds like you need a pair of ring snuggies.

    ETA: Ring snuggies are a small C shaped tube of clear PVC and can be clipped onto the underside of your ring to make it a size (Or more) smaller.

    check out these ring holding necklaces. I’m dying to buy one for myself…. so smart. You just slip your ring or rings onto the necklace when washing, working out, or whatever. And you don’t have to take the chain off (also I’m not a paid sponsor or anything) They have different shapes depending on your style. Personally I like the wishbone

    If your ring cant be worn then whats the sense? I think you should get the sized changed even a little and explain to them the issues…. I would want to wear my wedding ring as much as I can and it sounds like you would have a winter, washing dishes and bath ring and summer ring ….

    Get a simple precious metal band for those times.

    ETA: PVC isn’t healthy for you.

    @Hyperventilate:  Ring snuggies are a good idea in theory. I wore one for a while since I was losing weight and wanted to wait until I reached my goal to get my ring resized. The problems with ring snuggies 1) whenever you wash your hands water gets stuck in there. 2) My ring snuggie actually came off in the pool. Luckily my ring did not! That was the end of my ring snuggie experiment! I just switched my ring to a finger it fit on for the time being.

    @RiverBride13:  I never wear jewelery in a pool. Maybe you should adopt that policy?

    Edit: Chlorine in pools will react with white gold and will cause nickle and copper to corrode. It can weaken the joints around prongs and can cause them to snap and you have the risk of losing stones. Also, chlorine can stain and discolor diamonds and other white/clear stones.

    ETA: After a little research, chlorine will cause colored gems to lose their color and finish if they have been treated by a jeweler or lab.

    I will be getting a plain rose gold wedding band to wear in the summer months, due to my job not swelling, but maybe you would consider something like that? Or try to get them sized a bit smaller if at all possible and maybe that will solve the problem. Good luck.

    I have a cheap backup wedding band i got on ebay (titanium, $13.00) cause i am deathly afraid that i will lose my real rings on holiday while scuba diving etc.   My real rings are a pretty expensive, so my cheap ring is a great way to avoid a mugging while out of country.

    What about a thinner, tighter fit spacer ring in sterling silver for the winter months? You can wear it on the outer side so it’d serve as a “stopper” for the looser rings.
