Okay, I've mentioned my ring came flying off - twice - this week. NOT cool. I've been trying to decide whether to resize just yet, when I read a comment by Princess , whose rings keep flying off in public bathrooms, whenever she washes her hands (which, by the way, I hope is EVERY time)! Hand-washing, that is, not ring-flying ... LOL
Anyway, her comment caused others to comment on their loose rings too. And I realize there is a need for some practical tips out here in Weight Loss Blogland. If YOU have a practical tip, please PLEASE post it in the commentary below!
When I said I was deciding whether to resize my ring just yet, it wasn't a question of whether I'd put up with a flying ring or not. I, of course, will make sure it is properly secure on my hand, regardless of whether it makes it in to a jeweler this month or not. How? Well, here is my practical tip:
I simply put a RING GUARD on it (sometimes called a "Sizing Ring Guard"). It is a little device that attaches to the underside / palmside of the band, and "sizes," temporarily, the ring to your finger. In fact, I decided to use that, since I am still losing weight, rather than go through the expense this time of year, of having it done permanently.
Ring guards are LESS than $10, and are largely undetectable to the casual observer. More importantly, it saves the ring from possible damage. They can be found almost anywhere, and can be used on any size ring. It beats tape or yarn!
So, to all the women who, like me, are finding their fingers a little less pudgy these days, save your rings and still enjoy them, by purchasing a simple ring guard. You'll be so glad you did!
Tip # 1: Use ring guards when rings become too loose to stay on the hand!
