Can you get those balls put into the bottom of the band. That way it will fit you perfectly in the summer and even in the winter when you fingers tend to reduce swelling.

Congrats on the weight lost.  I would wait til the summer to do any resizing.  Most likely you won’t be too far off from your goal weight by then since you’re already doing so well.

My e-ring spun a lot in on it’s own. My finger size changes dramatically with the weather so in the winter time the center stone often found it’s way facing palm down while I typed or heck did anything. Now with my e-ring it hardly spins. I have no idea why. I guess the two create more friction so it can’t spin as easily? I’d wait until the ring was so big it was in danger of falling off before getting it re-sized and use something temporary in the mean time.

My ring was half a size too big when I got it and it spun so bad it was unbearable.  I didn’t want to put the balls in it because I’ve had those and don’t like the way they look either and thought they hurt when I had presssure in that area for a long period of time (like when driving).  I found this awesome glue online that I even had to tell my jeweler about.  It’s removable and basically is the same type of stuff that is attached to your credit card when you first get it to make it stick to the paper.  It lasts for about 4-5 days before you need to replace it.  It’s not regulary stock, so I had to get it online.  I’ll try to find the name for it.

@RR- My SIL has them and you cannot see them at all. They are on the inside of the band and you can only see them if she were to take off her ring and you looked at the bottom side of the band.

Wait and use a ring guard for now, as seasonal variation can make a huge difference. My ring fit pretty perfectly but with frequent spinning when Darling Husband proposed a year ago. By the wedding in Aug my ring was so tight I rarely took it off because it started to cut my knuckles, even though I had lost ten pounds. Now it is perfect again, in winter, but rarely spins because the wedding band pushes it to a slightly wider part of my finger, making it more snug.

If you don’t like the sizing balls then I’d just look into the adhesive, or clear ring guard until you’ve reached your weight loss goals. Spinning rings are such a pain. Alot of ppl that don’t like the look of the balls get the “speed bump”. Same idea, but it’s a tiny bar of metal that’s souldered into the bottom inside of the band, then melted off when the wearer is ready to have the band resized. It’s not as prominent as the balls.

Wrap a bit of fishing line around the bottom in a pinch. Not the prettiest solution but no one’s going to notice unless you flip your palm over.

Another option, this may be pricy but may be worth looking into once you’re ready to permanently resize, is to have the ring reset with a square shank, aka euroshank. They’re comfortable, look cool, and keep the ring upright. I have them on my rings and people think they’re just the coolest thing ever. The finger still goes thru a “circle” but the bottom of the ring is flat. No spin, ever.

Whatever you choose, wait until the warmer months to resize your ring. Cold fingers are always smaller.
