:smile: Hi everyone!

My dad gave me a lovely David Yurman ring, silver, yellow gold with a blue topaz.

The thing is, it's one size too big. I don't want to get it resized (I'm lazy, I know)... where do they sell those rubber thingies you can put on a ring (the part facing your palm). Do you know what I mean? Or is there some homemade thing I can do myself?

Thanks. Hope this isn't a stupid question.

If you decide to have it resized be careful who you give it to to do it. The heat can damage the stone. I've had this happen more than once. The proper was would be to take the stone out before resizing but I guess a lot of jewlers are lazy and leave the stone in. That's just my two cents. P.S. I have a ring that is too big and I had a ring guard (metal) put on it.

I wouldn't resize it, especially if you are young. You might find your fingers change a bit during pregnancy or over the years. I was happy to have my grandmother's (larger) wedding band in my jewelry box during the last two months of my pregnancy.

Heh, I use the extra rubber tubing I use in my aquariums. It's the exact same stuff and it's very soft and pliant.
Just slice off a length and cut in down the center (the long way).
The longer the piece of tube is, the tighter it will make the ring.

instead of resizing, you can have two small metal 'balls' put in the inside back of the band, this makes it a tad smaller, so it won't roll on your finger, however not altering the actual band. also, they can be removed pretty easily i believe.

_Yes, I have had this done with a ring that, due to the style, could not be resized. They soldered to the inside of the band a couple of small balls to make the ring fit to my finger.

I currently have another complicated ring which cannot be resized which I will have this done.
