I’m having a problem with my engagement ring rotating around my finger. I had it sized to 5.5, because I tried a 5.25 and it didn’t rotate, but I could barely get it over my knuckle and if my finger swelled even a munite amount it would be stuck and painful. I guess I just have big knuckes compared to the rest of my finger. Anyway, anyone else having this problem? How did you fix it? Someone suggested to me sizing beads, does anyone have those and do they help? Anyone have any other ides? It’s driving me crazy!

@MrsAL2012: weird my band is 5.5 too and the same thing happens to me… The jewler kept saying that it needed room in case my fingers swelled (which they never do). And I’ve gotten it smaller twice… finally to the 5.5 And the thing is always rotating on me. It goes over my knuckle easily now, but wouldn’t fall off on it’s own.

@MrsAL2012: I have the same problem, but I talked to my jeweler and there are a few things they can do. You can put these little knobs on the inside of your ring, but my jeweler said that it’s not very comfortable. He also had a pull apart band, but my ring is too narrow for it. Other than that, I don’t know of anything other than eating junkfood and “growing” into your ring.

My ring is a size 5 (made smaller from a 6). . . any smaller and it wouldn’t go over my knuckle. My fingers swell a little. . . and definitely shrink in the winter. However, with the 5 it’s a happy medium for the weather. It moves around underneath my knuckle. . . more so up and down rather than rotating. Occasionally it’ll twist a little, but not much. If you get the sizing beads, there’s still that chance that it won’t go over your knuckle. As long as it doesn’t slip off your finger I think you’re ok. A little movement is normal. No ring is going to fit SNUG all the time.

I have my ering soldered to the wedding band and its made a HUGE difference with keeping it upright on my finger. At first I was 100% against soldering, but now I love it!

Oh, and I meant to add that I had sizing beads on a ring before and HATED them. I could literally feel them 24/7 and they HURT going over my knuckle.

I had my Engagement Ring sized from a 4.25 down to a 4 because of rotating. It is now a pretty tight squeeze over my knuckle, especially in the summer, but I only take it off a few times a week so it does not bother me

My ering stopped spinning once I added the wedding band. My rings are not soldered though.

your ring spins because it is top heavy. I have heard that it improves if you solder ering and wband together.

@MrsAL2012: mine does it too, I am hoping it doesnt do it as much once I have the wedding ring.

Mine does that too and it’s super irritating. It won’t fall off because of my knuckle, (although I could go a 1/4 size smaller and still have room for my knuckle to go through, but my finger above is probably a good size or size and a half smaller than my knobby knuckles :/

I have sizing beads; they do not bother me at all, but my ering is a 1/2 size too big…

I love my sizing beads. I have them in both of my rings. They still don’t stop the spinning completely, but it’s not as bad. I haven’t had any trouble as far as swollen fingers and stuck rings go.

I have this problem and am now wearing another set during the cold months. I can’t resize bc in the summer my rings fit perfectly.

I had a “bridge” put into mine, which is similar to the sizing beads but more comfortable. The jeweler basically said that as long as I could put my ring over my finger, it was going to rotate as long as it was perfectly round. I don’t have the picture on this computer, but you can search through my posts to see how it looks.
