Signs Your Ring Is Too Tight

Jeweler using a ring sizer

The symbolism of your ring will never change, but your ring size might. Things like weight gain, pregnancy, swelling, salt intake, and weather can change your ring size, and that’s normal. Most of us experience changes in ring size throughout our lives, and even throughout the day. 

If your ring is too tight, you may need to get it resized. Here’s how you’ll know:

  • You have trouble getting it on or off
  • The ring leaves an indent on your finger
  • Your ring is painful or uncomfortable to wear
  • Your ring won’t turn
  • The skin around your ring bulges

How to Remove a Tight Ring

  • Use lotion or soap to help slip the ring off. If you do this over a sink, make sure to close the drain first!
  • Use the string trick or ribbon. (Google it!) 
  • Ice your finger while holding it over your head, then try to remove the ring.
