Ways to keep an engagement ring on?

My ring was sized at a 4.75 and fits okay, but with the winter coming and my fingers being cold it will slip off sometimes. I don't want to re-size it again. Should I just take it off for the winter? I think my fiance would be offended if I did that.

  • I can't wear necklaces, my 11 month old will hurt me with the tugging. Looks like the ring snuggies are just PVC piping cut - I could make one. I just lost a bunch of weight I don't want to gain it back on purpose ;)

  • Not sure how thick your band is but in highschool we used to just melt wax on the inside of rings that were too big (ie our boyfriends) using a candle. And it came off easy if/when needed.

  • Super glue it to your finger. Keep your finger bent.

  • Not quite pvc. Scotch tape wound around the band is the super cheap alternative to the ring snuggie.

  • You can also use yarn in place of tape as a dyi ring snuggie.

  • A jewelry store will put a sizer inside the band for free. It flexes as necessary

  • You could also wear a couple of stack rings on either side for the winter months.
