4 Alternatives to Wedding Rings

4 Alternatives to Wedding Rings

Fingers can grow, shrink, and change in size many times over our lifetime. It can be the result of weight gain or loss, pregnancy, medical conditions, or even a change in environmental conditions. Things like salt retention, change in climate, and even precipitation can make our fingers change in size. And, since traditional metal rings are pricey, it’s not always an option to have them resized. So, when your wedding ring no longer fits, here are four frugal things that you can do.

1. Wear a Necklace

Perhaps the quickest and easiest adjustment to rings that no longer fit is to slide them onto a gold chain and wear them as a necklace. We like this because it’s whimsical and keeps the sentimental jewelry close to your heart. However, it can also be unrealistic. So many of us also have necklaces that we enjoy wearing. Placing your daily wear rings on your neck places an expectation of daily wear on you. If you don’t want to become locked in the cycle, this solution may not work for you.

2. Heirloom Jewelry

If your normal ring doesn’t fit the way it should, why not go through your jewelry box to find one that does? Remember that the sentimental thing about your ring is what it represents, not how it looks. Choose a different ring that was, perhaps, handed down from family members. An heirloom piece will be attractive and may wind up meaning just as much (or more!) than your old rings!

3. Jeweler Sizers

A good compromise is visiting a jeweler. They can use metal sizers to make a ring that is too large to fit better. Since they’re not totally resizing the ring, these fixes tend to be less expensive and are able to be accomplished in a quicker fashion. Ask about sizing beads, a sizing bar, or a spring insert.

4. Switch to Silicone

Of course, this is our favorite option, but if you haven’t considered switching to silicone rings, now is the time! At about 10% the cost of a new metallic band, a silicone band is just as sentimental as your outsized ring, but without the cost. It’s also comfortable and will stretch with your fingers. That means that this ring will change with you, all while keeping your fingers safe.

If you’re ready to try a silicone ring, why not start with our Forever Collection? It’s designed to be luxe looking without breaking the bank. Check out the collection, here.
