- Add a tighter fitting ring
Adding a tighter fitting ring (easy to accomplish with ring stacking being so trendy these days) is a great way to help keep your engagement ring in place. A well-fitting, slightly smaller, complementary ring can help to hold the original ring on your finger.
Sizing beads are also an excellent option! These tiny beads attach on the inside of your ring, helping to minimize the gap between your ring and your finger.
Ring guards are usually a rubber band that takes up space and therefore makes your ring fit tighter. The plus is that they’re cheap. The minus is that they are often a temporary solution because they can damage your ring over the long term.
Unfortunately, sizing up doesn’t offer these alternatives and will require a jeweler’s touch to resize. So it’s always best when guessing to be on the larger side than the smaller side, this leaves you with more options down the road.
