I am sure I read somewhere that the Duchess of Cambridge had tiny bumps of gold put on the inside of her engagement ring to resize it. You can also get similar ring resizers to the the ones linked up thread in gold. Can't do a link as I am on the app but good old Google will have assist
I've got blobs/knobs of gold in my very new (7 day old) engagement ring. They annoyed me for about 4 days and since then, I haven't had a problem. My fingers seem to shrink dramatically in the cold and the blobs stop it falling over the knuckle.
Kate Middleton would have gotten them as her engagement ring is quite top-heavy and it would have otherwise kept sliding to the side. They are really good for keeping solitaire stones upright.
Went to jeweller and they told me the blobs are done often on rings with stones but they hadn't done it ever on thin wedding rings. I was measured and ring was 2 sizes too big so getting it downsized. Claudette I panicked as I came back from gym and found it had disappeared. Frantic telephone calls but really no hope. I tipped out my bag and discovered it. It must have come off when I went into it for something. I feel very,very lucky. Don't take a chance.
