Default How to Keep Rings from Sliding

Rings often slide around on your finger if the ring is a little too big. If you'd like to make sure your ring stays put on your finger, there are lots of simple fixes that will help keep it in place. If you have materials at home like hot glue, tape, or string, you can make your own solution with just a few minutes of time. While taking your ring to a jeweler for a more permanent fix will take a little longer, it's a great way to keep your ring from sliding around on your finger too.

[Edit]Steps

[Edit]Doing a Quick Fix
  1. Cover the inside of the band with hot glue and let it cool to downsize the ring. For a precise fit, squirt out a thin line of hot glue in the inside of your ringís band and let it dry completely before putting it on your finger. If your ring is way too big for your finger and needs more than a thin layer of glue, squirt out a small pile of hot glue on a paper or plastic plate. Dip the bottom of your ringís band into the hot glue, moving it back and forth until you build up a thick layer. Wipe off the excess hot glue and let the ring dry.[1]
    • Use your fingers to pop the hot glue right off of the ring if you decide you'd like to remove it.
    • Make sure the hot glue is completely dry before you put it on your finger to avoid burning your skin.
  2. Wrap clear Scotch tape around your ringís band to make it feel smaller. Pull off a piece of tape thatís roughly long. Start at one end of the tape and begin rolling it in a circle on top of itself, leaving enough length at the end to wrap around your ringís band. Once the tape is in a small ball, flatten the ball and place it inside your ring on the bottom of the band. Use the extra length of tape that isnít in a ball to secure it to the band.[2]
    • Use clear tape if possible so itís not as noticeable when you put the tape on your ring.
  3. Apply a quick-drying clear nail polish on the inside of the ring for an invisible fix. Shake up a bottle of clear top coat nail polish and use the applicator brush to swipe a clear coat onto the inside of your ringís band. Apply the nail polish in a thin layer on the bottom of the band and try to avoid getting any on the outside of the ring. Wait a few minutes for the nail polish to dry before putting on your ring to make sure it doesnít smear.[3]
    • If your ring is still sliding around on your finger, apply another clear coat layer on top of the first layer to give it more height.
    • Use your fingers to wipe away any excess nail polish that gets on the sides of your ring, if necessary.
    • If you need to remove the top coat from the ring, soak a cotton ball in acetone and dab the ring with it until the nail polish comes off.
  4. Attach a plastic ring guard to the band for a store-bought option. Plastic ring guards are transparent little tubes that slip onto your ringís band to help keep it from moving around on your finger. Pick out a plastic ring guard in a size right for your specific ring and place the plastic tube onto your band by slipping it through the slit in the ring guard.[4]
    • Look for plastic ring guards at your local big box store or online.
  5. Loop clear fishing line around the ring to help keep it in place. Cut a strand of clear fishing line thatís at least long. String the clear fishing line through the ring and tie a knot near the edge of the band to keep it secure. Begin wrapping the fishing line through the band to create loops and push the loops close together when theyíre on the band. Once you get to the other side of the band, tie another knot to secure the fishing line in place.[5]
    • Pull the fishing line taut as youíre looping it through the band to make sure it stays on the ring tightly. This will also help you push the loops together more easily.
    • If you need to remove the fishing line from the ring, cut the knots at the band and unravel it carefully.
  6. Wrap a piece of cloth or string around the band for a comfortable solution. If you think the plastic or fishing line solutions might be uncomfortable on your finger, pick out a piece of soft string or a skinny piece of cloth thatís at least long. Tie a knot onto the side of your band using the string or cloth and begin looping it through the band and pulling it tightly. This will create a soft cushion to help keep your ring from moving around.[6]
    • Tie another knot at the other end of the band to keep the string or cloth in place.
    • Use a soft cloth thatís less than wide to make looping it easier.
    • Use scissors to cut the string or cloth off of the ring, if necessary.
[Edit]Taking Your Ring to a Professional
  1. Add sizing beads to your ring to change it about a half size. Sizing beads are made out of the same material as your ring and are added to the inside of the band to keep your ring from moving around on your finger. Two beads are soldered on in the lower left and lower right section of the band and can be smoothed out to be more comfortable.[7]
    • Contact your local jeweler to find out how much sizing beads would cost for your specific type of ring.
    • For example, if your ring was made out of 14K gold, the beads that are attached would be made of 14K gold as well to match.
    • Sizing beads can also be removed later on by your jeweler, if needed.
  2. Pay a jeweler to add a metal spring insert to your ring for a comfortable fix. Spring inserts are ĎUí shaped and attach to the inside of your ringís band. When you slide your finger into your ring, the metal ĎUí shape will expand to hold your ring in place on your finger.[8]
    • Many people find these to be the most comfortable option.
    • The spring insert is usually silver, even if your ring is a different color or material.
  3. Get your ring professionally resized for a permanent solution. If your ring slides around constantly or is just clearly too large, the best thing to do is to get it resized. While this may be a little more expensive, resizing your ring will ensure that itís comfortable and permanently fixed. To resize the ring, your jeweler will likely cut out a small section of the ring and rejoin it so itís the right size.[9]
    • Make sure you talk with your jeweler about how much smaller your ring needs to be and what your correct ring size is so they know exactly how to resize it.
