Fantastic Products! I♡♡♡♡♡♡♡♡THEM! I've been using a different kind of plastic ring guard, with poor results. The ones that have a plastic tube with a single slit in them are HARD. Hard to put on the ring & hard to keep the little plastic tube on once you do. You HAVE TO stretch the little tube a bit to get it on the ring & then, the gap created to put it on to the ring allows the tube to fall off! The tube moves around the back of your finger and when the slit type opening lines up with the shank (the back side of your ring) it FALLS OFF! Along with your ring! Especially if you wash your hands a lot or use hand sanitizer in your work. It's very rigid too, making the ring too tight if your fingers swell up during the day while you're wearing it.
This product has 2 types of ring guards. The first is just like An Old Fashioned land-line telephone cord. It's put on your ring by wrapping the cord around the shank of your ring/rings. It doesn't fall off because it's coiled around your ring. It's easier to put on your ring & it stays on. Also, the material it's made of is a softer, less rigid kind of vinyl plastic making it more comfortable to wear.
The 2nd kind of ring guard is a flat plastic guard that has 2 grips-one at each end. This is good for keeping an engagement & wedding ring together. It creates a set for you without a trip to the jeweler! It also stops one or both rings from turning around on your finger. And the other good thing about it is that you can separate them at your pleasure! Sometimes, you don't want to wear your engagement ring. If you're working with your hands in something messy, you may not want to risk loosing the stone(s). This is a great tragedy when it happens. I have a friend who was cleaning an apartment for check-out & her diamond fell out of it's setting. She searched everything she remembered touching, but never found it. Her fiancé was away at the time & she knew he would be really unhappy if he found out. He saved a long time to buy it. So she went to the jeweler & bought a CZ (cubic zirconium) of the same size as the diamond & had it set so he wouldn't know. When they went to buy wedding bands just before they got married, she confessed what had happened because she knew the jeweler would know the difference. Unfortunately, the metal used to make Wedding & Engagement rings (usually 14 K to 18 K gold) is soft. You really should take your ring to have it professionally cleaned & have the setting checked every 6 months at a minimum. Every month would be better. But who has time for this? I recommend you have it examined as soon as possible after you wack it on something hard. The prongs of your setting are the only thing holding that stone in place. Most reputable jewelers will clean & examine your ring under a microscope for free if you go when they're not busy with other customers. I recommend you call & make an appointment when someone competent is there to do this for you & also when someone is there to fix it if it's in need of repair. Look for jewelers with GIA or AGS signs in their stores & advertisements. They can only display these logos after having passed rigorous exams & agree to do business with the public according to a strong set of ethical requirements.
I also want to comment on ring guards made of metal. The metal they're made from is always gonna be harder than the metal in your ring(s). Over time, they will shave off the gold at the shank of your ring. You can have the shank rebuilt if you notice it's getting thinner. But why pay for more gold when you can use these vinyl ring guards! I'm an advocate of the philosophy of not paying for the same ring twice! Why would you want to when there's so many other things, including other rings ;) to buy?
Also, having your rings soldered together might seem like a good idea after you're married. But there will be times you don't want to risk loosing a stone from your engagement ring. So this Darling Little plastic ring guard allows you to separate them whenever you want!
I'm also a person who enjoys wearing rings on different fingers & different hands. If you buy a ring with a bigger size, you can choose which finger you wear it on & select the thickness of the cord that will adjust the size of your ring to whichever finger you like! ! And, these ring guards come off easily when YOU want them to!
This is a really great solution for securing your rings to your fingers. You should try it. Loosing a ring is the ultimate bummer. It's almost as bad as being told by your Insurance Company that: "Mysterious Disappearance of a Gemstone from it's Setting is Excluded from your policy". So don't forget to have your ring checked regularly by a professional jeweler. It's not a waste of the Jeweler's time or your own. Think of it like a Safety Inspection for your jewelry. Something you wear every day. Here's wishing you many years of enjoyment wearing your rings securely!
I have been looking for these, and found on Amazon. Have used the past week, both kind of guards work great. I feel the coil will fit any ring and is more comfortable to wear and also easier to get off. I am really glad I bought these, since I lost over 40 lbs. and my rings are loose. These worked great.
I had to order these twice and went through each one of the bridges because even though I superglued them to the inside of my ring, if I picked up the laundry or tried to carry a bag, they'd be gone in a flash. The roll on kind was super uncomfortable. I finally solved the problem by getting rid of the cheap fiancee that wouldn't get me a ring that actually fit. That did wonders. Problem solved.
For the price this came with 2 sizes of each adjuster plus 4 of the spirals ! had to put the foam adhesive on the back of the adjuster twice just because I used too big of a piece the first time (it comes with a ton of various sized strips) I found that if i put it on without the adhesive it popped of while trying to put my ring on. The spirals are useful as well they are just q little more noticable. I'd like to note that its pliable plastic so there's going to be some discoloration based in the fact that these adjusters are on your finger all the time.
I think I didn’t realize there would be so many at this price. This is a great value. My fingers are susceptible to size changes based on water retention, travel, and, of corse, diet. The variety of band width adaptations is great. There seems to be one for each style of my rings. There are instructions included, which is good because I didn’t get how the spirals work. I am very pleased with this purchase; there are enough of these to share. But I probably won’t. Instead, I’ll get more rings!
I had already had my ring size adjusted at the jewelry store, but it tended to spin on my finger - especially if I was cold. I was terrified that the ring would come off in my winter gloves and get lost. I did not want to go back to the jeweler because of the cost and because I did not want to compromise the structure of the ring. I searched online for an answer, and this one seemed to make the most sense. I came close to not buying it because of the reviews, but I am glad that I disregarded them. From the moment I put the coil on my ring, the spinning stopped. I only used 6 of the tiniest coils, and the result was exactly what I wanted. I was concerned about how it would look, but once the coils are in place, it looks like a design etched into the band. I have had mine on now for a couple of weeks, and it seems like it's going to last awhile. No problems, though, because the package came with enough coils to last a very long time.
We used this to resize my fiancees engagement ring since it was just a little too big but we didnt know what exactly we need. However, when we actually looked at the different implements there was only 1 item to resize a ring with a narrow band. If you have rings with thick bands you will have lots of options. Thin bands not so much. However the option we did use works fantastic.
I found the cords durable, easy to put on, and feel almost imperceptible (and I am quite sensitive to tags, scratchy materials, etc). I found the double-stick tape/inserts to be kind of useless, they didn't stay sticky, plastic is more inflexible, squeezed my finger more, etc. But the cord is great, I wore the same piece of cord for about 3mos, and finally cut a new piece as the other one was getting a bit stretched out and yellowed.
I'm finally getting around to resizing the ring but if I didn't, I'd think there's about 6-12mos of cord (for whichever size you prefer) here. Overall I only used about a quarter of the materials since the rest were wrong thickness and size, but hey, it was about the price of a mcChicken so :shrug:
My husband is hard on things and we’ve tried a variety of ring sizers and they’re either to uncomfortable or they break or he loses them within a month or two. He put this on one afternoon let it sit overnight and has had no issues since (It’s been almost a month). It’s like a piece of thin velvet with sticky on one side, it’s comfortable, and sticks excellent. He has a smooth ring, 6mm, he had no trouble getting it to stick. Plus there’s plenty more if this one wears out. Came with three colors with multiple precut sizes plus extra of each color where you could cut your own size. Great buy for a great price!
