Stuck wedding ring - neither stylish nor beautiful

Stupid question. I turned 45 today. And my wedding ring has instantly stuck fast on my finger. I have tried cold water, hand cream and swearing a lot. No luck. Has middle age struck and swelling occurred overnight? Does anyone have any tips? Its not been a problem before but the dermatitis will be soon (once its stopped being my birthday and I gave no legitimate excuse for not washing up). Thank you

Hot water (as hot as you can bear) will make the metal expand slightly. Soapy bubbles in the washing up will also help it slip off.

Happy birthday Smile

liquid soap, lots of it, should get it off.

Happy Birthday, hope your day improves soon Smile

Wow - thank you. I am in the study getting really finger shrinkingly cold and am then going to try the hot water and liquid soap tricks.
If they fail I will try the other because it looks very scary and also its going to need more hands than I have so will have to wait for DH to get home.
