please help -

i've tried googling, but ring reducer etc produces some strange results!

don't want to get my rings permanently made smaller, but currently strange pregnancy side effect is fingers are getting slimmer - whilst the bump gets bigger. i know you can buy plastic things to temporarily make rings smaller, but what are they called and where can i get some?

thanks

    You could try this stuff

    or easy and cheap fix, get some clear air line pipe for a fish tank and cut about 1cm off and split it and pop it on your ring.

    Hope that helps.

    Betterware have these for £4.99, but I didn't find them awfully good - you may be different though.

    Hi there, I think jewellers have those plastic things to fit around your ring. My friend recently lost a lot of weight and had the same problem. The local jeweller provided the plastic bit.

    I went into a local jewellers and just asked for something to go on my ring as I wanted to try it before getting ring made smaller and make sure it wasn't too tight. They called it a clip and it cost £3.50. Still got it on ring now, about 2 years on so if I do get fatter again, it just unclips from ring. A jeweller can fit it while you wait.

    I had this problem when i got married but this was easily remedied but it takes sheer determination & will-power. Start eating & drinking more than you used to do and after a short while i can guarantee that your ring will fit snugly around your finger.

    I'm sure once the OP is further along in her pregnancy, that this problem will disappear...;)
