Having big knuckles can make wearing rings difficult. But when your big knuckles are due to arthritis or swelling, wearing rings can become uncomfortable and frustrating! If you size the ring to fit over your knuckle, the heavy part of the ring will fall to bottom of your finger or spin but if you size it to fit your finger, the ring might not slide over your knuckle or could be painful to get the ring on. This causes a problem that leads many people to give up on wearing rings.
Well when there is a jewelry problem, we have a solution! Thankfully there are two great ways to make your rings have the perfect fit, no matter the size of your knuckles!
The first and least expensive option is to add sizing beads to the inside of your ring. Two beads made out of the same metal as your ring are soldered into the bottom of the shank. With this option, your ring will be sized to fit over the knuckle and the beads will hold the ring in place on your finger. The sizing beads are very effective in providing a great fit and are surprisingly comfortable.
