Every one of us has gone through this nightmare when we fall in love with the most splendid ring design and they are not the right size. An ill-fitting ring can dampen our mojo. What more, if you bought the ring for a specific occasion and it didn’t fit well, the chances are that you may not even be able to wear it for that special occasion. So do we let our expensive piece of jewellery just rot in our closet? Well, thankfully there are tips and tricks that can help you still wear that elegant piece of jewellery even if it doesn’t exactly fit you. Here is how:
One of the most obvious solutions to an ill-fitting ring is resizing it. Many reputed jewelry stores not only suggest the most appropriate size to their patrons but also provide resizing options. Although there are some materials like Titanium, Tungsten, etc., which cannot be easily resized, most other rings can be resized if they have simpler design elements.
Using another finger
If you are buying a ring just because you like the design, it is not necessary that the ring had to fit on the ring finger. An engagement ring has a specific finger it needs to fit on, but costume jewellery has no such limitation. In fact, wearing big sized statement rings on the first finger or the pinky finger has become a trend these days and there is no reason why you shouldn’t try it out.
Use the other hand
Did you know that the dimension of all your fingers on one hand slightly vary from the dimensions of your finger on the other? This is why it makes sense to try out an ill-fitting ring whose design you love, on both the hands. Who knows, you may end up finding the perfectly fitting finger.
If you cannot resize your ring due to any reason, there are still options that you can use. If your ring is too small to fit any of your fingers, why not buy a chain from the local store and use the finger rings as pendants.
If your ring is bigger in size, there are a few DIY hacks that can help you to get the fit and size you want. Of course, it is best to first check with your jeweller if they can resize your ring before going the DIY way with expensive jewellery. One way to get your ring to fit your finger is to stack it up on top of another ring that fits well. Another DIY trick that people swear by is using a hot glue gun. Just line the inside of your ring with glue from a hot glue gun and voila you have an instant well-fitted ring. You can slip in plastic-guard as a quick fix to get your loose ring to fit better.
