Oh No!

Oh thank goodness!

I have had this happen. I, too, found my rings, but crikey, its scary for a while there. You can buy commercial ring guards that fit inside of the ring and hold it snugly to your finger.

You can go to any jeweler and buy a ring guard for a few dollars.

You can buy these little plastic things that fit on your ring to make it smaller.

Oh my gosh that happened to me. I remember it so well and I remember starting up a thread about it. My ring just fell right off of me. I was so shocked, amazed and THRILLED.

And now I'm THRILLED for you!!! Thank goodness you found it. See, isn't this journey FUN?

You can go to a jeweler and have them put a ring guard on during the interim, til you're ready to have them size it down.
