Ring sizing

Ring sizing 1
Does anyone know if a jeweler can size/ take some off the sides? They sized it once but still spins even with plastic ring sizers.
Any smaller and it wont fit over knuckle.

To me it looks like they took from the bottom because it looka so thin.

    I think the bottom of the ring is always thinner than the rest of it, mine is. I got my ring resized 3 times before finding the right size. Mine still spins as well, but the jeweler told me all rings do that unless it's way too small and can't move at all in which case you'd have a hard time getting it on and off. It might just be top heavy. They have something called ring sizer beads that they can put on there that will allow you to get the ring over your knuckle, but it should stop it from spinning as much. I would do some research on it first though.

    If you have a large knuckle and skinny fingers, your ring might just spin. Taking metal off the sides of your ring is not going to do anything.

    You can get "sizing beads" added. Those are like little nubs on the inside of the ring that will help create a tighter fit without decreasing the inner circumference, therefore still allowing it to fit over your knuckle. I would reach out to a jeweler and let them know what you are experiencing and see what they recommend. Don't hesitate to bring your ring to a few different shops to get different opinions.

    I personally would rather shove my ring over a fat knuckle than have it spin all day, so I have mine sized for my finger than my knuckle.

    I have ring beads on mine. I barely ever notice them, only when I hold something heavy they can dig in a little bit but I don’t like to do heavy lifting with my ring on anyway!

    I did the ring beads too! Def stopped the ring from spinning and doesn’t damage your ring. You can also have them removed at a later time without damage.

    If you are worried about how thin the bottomed portion is a jeweler can add a half shank which will build up the bottom. I see what you are saying about the sides, but maybe with the half shank added it might balance out. Spinning happens, like others have said getting the nubs inside could help.
