Ordered the perfect ring, but it’s a bit too big? Try this cheap, reversible, and simple way to make your ring fit more comfortably.
Purchasing a ring that’s slightly too big is a common problem. Often, this situation is made more complicated when the ring in question is a custom-made engagement ring or wedding band that cannot be exchanged. Permanent methods of ring resizing, like stretching rings, may not be feasible for an eternity band or a ring with custom engraving.
Fortunately, when crafty blogger Natasha of The Artisan Life discovered that ring snuggies, the clear bands placed around rings to make them fit more snuggly, can be uncomfortable and unattractive, she discovered her own brilliant way to safely and temporarily resize her wedding rings.
The following DIY ring resizing technique is adapted from Natasha’s tutorial.
Food-grade silicone adhesive.
What to do:
As Natasha explains, the silicone layer won’t wear off when you wash your hands or remove your ring. After about a month, however, it may start to look grubby or begin peeling up at the edges, but you can simply peel it off a apply a fresh layer.
