I got beads put on my first ring because the jeweller couldnt size it down anymore. Originally we thought I was a 4.5 but im really 4.25. At first they felt weird but I got used to them.


My upgraded engagement ring was sized to a perfect 4.25 and its a little snug.. I think I would try it with the balls first before another resize.

I had a similar sizing problem and the store said dont get it to small cuz your fingers may swell, well 3 sizing sessions later and 3 months later still didnt have my ring back from sizing so I just ended up returning it to the store and getting a new ring at an entirely diffrent jewelry store and it fit much better still spins occasionally but not like the first ring.  Did you ask the jeweler if your ring maybe runs a bit bigger when it comes to the sizes.  I am just like you have big knuckles and skinnier fingers, I thought I needed a 4.75 too with old ring but new ring is a 5 and fits well like i said.  The finger snuggie things drove me crazy lol. 

But if the snuggie things work well for you and are comfortable you def can where them.

**technical term of the day—> snuggie things. lol

I’m incredibly into those beads. I don’t have an ering yet but my friend has the big-knuckle, thin-finger issue and she uses sizing beads to keep it secure and not all twirly!

I had a sizing bar put in and highly regretted it, it bit into my finger amd was very painful, not to mention reaaly ugly.   I’d try sizing beads first, if I had to do it over.

I have a sizing bridge (I think it’s like PeachSnapple’s sizing bar) and I LOVE mine.

Ok, I have the same issue. Way thinner finger than my knuckles. So I size my rings to 4.75 so they pass over my knuckle, with some soap or other lubricant. Then, they are safe on my finger and will never fall off! But they do spin like crazy!!!

The key is a low setting with not too much weight on the top. That just makes it spin more. I changed my white gold shank to a platinum shank, which helped a little because it’s way heavier.

Once I soldered my wedding band to my e-ring, it was more stable because of a larger suface being covered. Still it spins though…it’s our thing! 

I do find a ring that is slightly loose to be more comfortable. When fingers swell in heat or every morning, our rings are still really comfortable. 

The only ring I wear without any worry about repositionning it to the top of my finger is an eternity band. Diamonds all around = doesn’t matter when it spins! 😉 Still, I love my e-ring and wear it, and reposition it all the time. 

Here’s my ring on my funny fingers 😉
