Losing Weight and Jewelry

what do you do with your rings when you have lost weight that they are too big for your fingers; but you have more weight to lose so kinda don't want to have them resized just yet?

  • You can get these little clear, soft plastic things from a jeweler that temporarily snug the rings so you can wear them. I can't tell you more than that, I just remember a friend of mine having one on her engagement ring because she'd lost weight.

  • Not wear them or wear them around a chain on your neck!

  • I have the same problem, and I will probably have to move my wedding rings to another finger soon! I may wear them around my neck.

  • Agree with SWasson.

    Get some ring size adjusters. The clear plastic ones are less than $5 a pack.

  • I had my rings enlarged after having kids ... then 3 years later I finally lost the weight, but I am now afraid to get my rings fixed again so they just dangle down around my knuckle all the's really been driving me nuts. I'm going to have to try that clear plastic thing SWasson is talking about. I wouldn't get them fixed just yet if you are planning on losing more weight. Just wait.

  • you can buy clear ring sizers that fit on your ring to make them fit better.

  • Take them to a jeweler and have them put a "sizing band" (sorry, don't know the technical name for it) on the bottom half of the band. This makes the diameter of the ring smaller, and can easily be adjusted if needed.
