Ideally, you need to get a ring that fits over the knuckle.  Are there large gaps with the one that fits over his knuckle?  My ring and my husband’s both spin a bit but that’s a good thing because it isn’t so tight that it cuts off circulation to our finger.  You might want to try a band with comfort fit, those usually get around knuckles easier.

Tell him to gain some weight in his fingers lol!  But seriously, I don’t think there is anything you can really do since you don’t want to go too small and risk having to have it cut off if he is in an accident or something.

Mine has that problem too. We are getting him a comfort band half a size bigger than his actual ring size. It still spins a little, but it will be fine. And in the summer, his fingers swell from the heat, so having it a bit bigger will help with that too.

And what noritake says about the summer is true.  My rings are always tighter in the summer and looser in the winter so even if it feels a little loose now, it will probably fit better in the summer.

What you can do is to get the half size up from the one that fits his finger and then have the ring shaped into an oval….I have the exact same problem and the jeweler just ovaled it out and it fits much better now. Talk to the jeweler and see what they can do – this is a very common problem

I have seen rings with a hinged shank advertized for people with large knuckles.  I searched “hinge rings” on google.  http://www.superfitonline.com/ is one of the first pages that came up.. it has examples of this type of ring, but jewelers can probably order them for you too.  Hope this helps!

Yup, definitely make sure a professional jeweler sizes him correctly — rings absolutely come in 1/4 sizes and your jeweler should be able to custom size the ring for you. Shaping (ovaling) or soldering on sizing beads is a good option as well. My (future) Maid/Matron of Honor had this problem and had to have sizing beads on her ring, but she loves them! Her ring never slips and it is way more comfortable than it looks… lol. Here’s an example:

I had this same problem with my engagement ring. A 4.5 is the smallest size that will get over my knuckles, but it spins around so much once it’s on. So I got one of these put in:

(It’s just a thin metal U soldered to the bottom. It widens while slipping over the knuckle, and rests tightly around the bottom part of my finger. It’s very comfortable and a very affordable [$50] solution!)

My Darling Husband has the same issue.  He got one that snugly goes over the knuckle and it spins at the base of his finger.  For this reason he chose one that has a design all the way around evenly so it doesn’t matter where it sits exactly.  It’s still loose enough he can tug off but it won’t go flying off.
