This may not be the best suggestion, but it would definitely work in the short run. Try wrapping the base with yarn? Might take up more space, but would be less irritating than the tape? Other Bees might be more helpful…

Ask the jeweler to fit a sizer inside!  like this:


I have one in a ring from my Grandmother and it works perfectly!

I went to a jeweler and they put a temporary sizer on one of my rings. They did it for free.

Yes, go to the jeweler for a metal sizer.  You can adjust it yourself with a butter knife as you lose weight.

You can get sizing balls/beads put in your ring.

@MissCalifornia: Usually mom & pop shops will (as in local jewelry stores, not mall stores like kay, zales, ect.)

@MissCalifornia: oh they definitely won’t turn you away.  they’ll do it in the hopes that you come to them when you’re ready to have it resized, or that next time you want some piece of jewelry for whatever reason, you’ll think, “gee, those guys at what’s-its-place were really nice and gave me a ring guard for free even though i didn’t get my ring there.  maybe i should go there.”  lol

@MissNoodles: This one.  That’s probably the best bet now. My mom has one in her ring, to take it down about a size and a half and she says she doesnt feel it at all.

You can get sizing beads. They are also removable ( a jeweler has to remove them) I’m a size 3.5 and my ring has diamonds on the side and I had to have the ring resized to a 4 and still kept its shape (but couldn’t make it any smaller) and then I had to add sizing beads. If I gain weight they can be removed. Good luck

You can buy those metal sizers that MissNoodles suggested at the store.  They are gold filled and MUCH more secure than the silicone/plastic donut type sizers.  Mine cost about $2 for one.  Or you could order online for a small pack.
