I can't get my ring off!

My ring will officially not come off my finger. I mean, it's not cutting off circulation or anything, it will twist around the finger so it's still a little loose (loose enough) but it won't pull off!!

It's as if my fingers got bigger around it and the part my ring is around didn't!

Help!

What do I DO??


It really is scary! One time I put my ring that I wear on my ring finger on my middle finger of my right hand which for some reason is larger than all of my other fingers and it was stuck for 3 days. I seriously thought I was going to have to take it to the jewler to get it cut off of my finger and then soldered back together so I could still wear it!

Lotion or butter, my hands swell up all the time and it's a nightmare to get it off

Idk about you but when my hands get cold my fingers seem to shrink because my rings are always trying to fall off. Maybe ice or stand there with your hand in the freezer? LOL.

Cold should help bring down any swelling.

Cold water. When I get hot my fingers swell and running my hand under cold water helps the ring come off. Also I swell if I have too much salt.

Either cold or lotion will probably work.

Yikes, I'd probably get all panicky.  Wash your hands with lots of soap and maybe it will slip off.  Just don't lose it down the drain.  ;0)

lol yes, I buttered the crap out of it. But now I can't get it on again! I'm gonna have to get it re-sized.

I put mine on a chain and wore it that way.

I'd rather wear mine on my finger, it's pretty and I get a lot of compliments on it so its worth it to get it resized.
