You can’t get it resized?

What metal is the ring made of?  It’s possible that the sizing bar is rubbing on your ring and causing the coating to come off.  Can you have it re-dipped to repair the damage and then have the ring resized to your correct size?

ETA: If it can’t be resized have you consider having sizing beads put in?

What is the ring made of? Silver and diamond? Gold and diamond? Moissy? I think knowing what it is will help us give advice.

It’s your baby?  I’m glad it makes you happy, but your ring doesn’t sleep as it is not alive.  Maybe try to focus on the truly wonderful things you have in your life and this ring issue will be put into perspective, because I’m sure you have many other things in your life that make you happy other than your ring.

I just got beads put in on my ring, and it makes a world of difference! It took some getting used to, but I think it was the right call– I can always get them taken out later, which I might do when I get my wedding ring because those tend to actually make your engagement ring fit a little bit tighter. Highly recommend it!

quianaa2001:  I admit I’m curious about a ring that was purchased from a jewelery store being made out of a mystery metal that can’t be resized…or is it that it can’t be resized because of diamonds in the shank?

quianaa2001:  The beads shouldn’t be expensive at all, so it’s definitely worth a shot! See if they have a sample ring with beads in for you to try on first; like I said it’s kind of an odd feeling at first, so it was nice to try on their sample first to get a sense of what it was like.

I would take it to a jeweler and figure out what its made of and then you can figure out how to proceed. Until you know what it is its hard to say what the best course of action is.

I’m a little confused about the store you purchased it at. Like chain stores have display rings but they are no different than the other rings you actually take home (actually any time i’ve ever bought a ring from a jewelry store i’ve always taken home the exact ring displayed in the case). Did this store have display rings made out of a different material than what the actual rings are made out of or how does that work? You say it was inexpensive but if thats a gold and diamond ring it would be pretty pricey for a stone that size so thats whats making me wondering if their displays were made of something else?
