A lot of People have Rings that Don’t Fit!
They’re either too Big, or they Spin Around your Finger.
No one likes a Floppy Ring!
Especially an Engagement Ring.
Luckily, there are a lot of Options:
- Get your Ring Sized to Fit
- Get a Ring Guard put on
- Tie a String around your Ring
Okay, that last one is Pretty Old Fashioned (My EX-Girlfriend did it with my Class Ring back in Highschool).
But that’s not really a Great Option (She LOST My RING!!!)
And Sizing it isn’t always the Best Option either. Many people don’t like to get their Ring Sized because:
- Their Fingers Swell Up and Down Daily
- Their Fingers Change Sizes with the Seasons (Tight in the Summer, Loose in the Winter)
- Sizing can get Pretty Expensive (Especially if your Ring is Platinum)
- And, Many People Just Don’t Trust Jewelers! (“You Want me to Leave my Ring?“)
So the Alternative of course, is Ring Guards
For 25 Years I’ve been putting Ring Guards (Gold Filled Ring Guards) on People’s Rings like this:
Metal Guards Do Work, and they can Last a Long Time… And they even make Larger Metal Ring Guards like this for Double Rings (Engagement and Wedding Rings). You can also Buy a Kit like this that has all Different Sizes and Do it Yourself (Just Don’t Forget the Jeweler’s Pliers).
Sadly, these Types of Ring Guards are only Meant to be Temporary for a Number of Reasons:
- They Don’t look so Hot (Did you see the Ring above?)
- They Leave a Gap between the Guard and the Finger, which can Squish and Bend your Ring out of Shape
- They are Plated, and may Break your Skin out in a Rash
- They can Scratch and Dent and Damage your Ring Shank, because you are taking Pliers and Wrapping Metal around the Base of your Ring… Which Reminds me, you can do this yourself, but if you don’t know what you’re doing you can really Mess up the Guards and your Ring!
- They are Often Sharp and Pointy and Dig into your Finger and Skin
Even the Spring Ring Metal Guards aren’t any Better. They still have to be Wrapped around the Base and can Damage or Harm the Ring.
So what’s your Best Bet?
Plastic Ring Sizer Guards!
They make Many Varieties of Plastic Ring Guards, and my Favorite is the Ring Noodle, shown below…
Want to Know Why I Love These?

- They can be Cut to Different Lengths, so they Fit most any Ring, and can Alter the Size Up or Down
- They Don’t Damage the Ring in the Least
- They are Hypoallergenic!
