ADJUSTABLE / RESIZABLE RINGS: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW GUIDE & HOW TO

ADJUSTABLE / RESIZABLE RINGS: EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW GUIDE & HOW TO

If you ask everyone with a ring on their finger why they wear it, you will hear reasons ranging from their aesthetic appeal to being a symbol of something important. So, as an accessory that has evolved in style over time, and even as traditional rings have improved in aesthetics, it has failed to improve on one important feature; flexibility and because traditional bands have failed to serve this purpose, and many more, adjustable rings have been everyone’s go-to. 

So in this article, I will be providing answers to several questions that have come up regarding adjustable rings. 

What is an Adjustable Ring

An adjustable ring is a ring that is intentionally made with a little gap that gives room for it to expand to about half a ring size. It should be a one-fit-all ring designed to fit anyone within the specified finger sizes - mostly somewhere in between of 5 to 9 US (48 - 59EU) and it can do this because of an opening or allowance put into the ring, depending on the type of adjustable ring. These types of the ring came into the market to meet the needs of providing comfort and a ring that can size people with large or swollen knuckles that end up being bigger has the finger. 

Over the years, the design for adjustable rings have become more sophisticated such that you can find several means of wearing them even while they retain their initial allure of comfort and ease. They can be worn on several fingers by different people without any need for resizing and as adjustable rings can be worn by a wider range of people because they are easy to adjust, it has therefore become more accessible and sought after to meet both style and traditional needs. 

However, most of the adjustable rings on the market are mostly cheap Chinese counterfeits of traditional jewelry brand's designs that won't last longer. Keep reading to find out how to avoid these and where to find high quality adjustable rings!

Types of adjustable rings

Basically there are two types of adjustable rings;

1. Open Rings

Open rings are formed with a small gap to allow you to adjust the size. Such rings differ from classical designs in their shape. Most of the time, they don’t resemble the usual letter O, but rather the letter C. The gap is invisible while wearing the ring and located in the back of the accessory, but sometimes also in the front, on the decorative part. Due to its shape, these resizable rings are also known as "wrap", "wrap around", or "hugging" resizable rings. Leaf rings definitely belong to the most favorite ones with the gap in the front as they're opening by pushing the branches in/outwards.

Here you can check the open adjustable ring type with the gap in the back. Just be careful while choosing such a ring. Some manufacturers don't care about the fact that the gap might actually squeeze the skin of your finger if the endings of the band are not completely round. Also, these can be described as "wrap around" or "wrapping" resizable rings for women.

2. Rings with an adjustable band

This type of adjustable ring is very close to the traditional style. There is an adjustable band at the bottom of the ring. Due to their ergonomic design with a special cut, they can be worn easily. You can customize their size by slightly squeezing or unbending them. There are several types of adjustable bands but two of them are the most common:

THE MOST FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ABOUT ADJUSTABLE RINGS

Can a silver ring be adjustable?

Simply put, the answer is Yes.

Now the silver itself is a budget-friendly highly malleable metal and this is why most budget friendly models of adjustable rings are made with silver materials. Silver is also considered as a durable, yet flexible metal, therefore it's one of the most suitable material for resizable rings

 

How do I resize an adjustable ring?  

Adjustable rings can be resized quite easily too but it has to be done carefully because there are adjustable rings does not mean it can be stretched anyway. If you do that, you could damage it permanently. 
If it is loose around your finger and you want to close it in so it fits, follow these three steps...

1. Use your index finger and thumb to slowly and gently squeeze the band inwards. 
2. Use your thumbs to lightly apply pressure at the top of the ring to maintain the ring's round shape. 
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 until the ring fits around your finger comfortably.

Also, if you also want to open it up to make it larger or fit through your knuckles, follow these three simple steps.

1. Use your index finger and thumb to slowly and gently squeeze the band outwards. 
2. Use your thumbs to lightly apply pressure at the top of the ring to maintain the ring's round shape. 
3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 until the ring fits around your finger comfortably.  

NOTE: Remember that adjustable rings can only be expanded or contracted by a few inches.  

Do adjustable rings break?

This may come as a surprise but Yes, adjustable rings break.

Do not widen it just to remove it. Constantly expanding and contracting it makes the ring weak and may eventually break. Instead you should just slowly twist the ring upward to get it off your finger and slowly twist the ring down your finger in a gentle motion. This way you can prolong the life of your adjustable ring even if it's a cheaper one. Generally, the idea here is to be as careful and gentle as possible, when it comes to taking the ring on and off. Especially, when it comes to fragile designs as e.g. leaf rings, or other open ringsSatinski olive open wrap around hugging leaf resizable ring

How can I make my adjustable ring more comfortable?

The good thing about adjustable rings is that they grow with you and so can be altered to make you more comfortable. If maybe your fingers get swollen, you don't have to subject yourself to wearing a tight ring that will leave marks and give you pain. So to make it more comfortable, all you have to do is expand it out a little bit, place the ring over your knuckle and gently squeeze it in, and now you have a great fit! If you are already wearing it, then there is no need to take it off. Just place your thumbs over the open space and apply a little pressure so it gives room. You can repeat the process even in the summer if your fingers shrink and swell. Also, in another way, if your finger get thinner or you just lose weight you can always adjust the ring by applying a little pressure once the ring is on. 

How can I make my ring tighter at home?

There are two ways to do this, manually with your finger or with an adjustable stick - check the video shared above.

1. With your finger, you just have to note where the opening is or where, depending on the design, where the sides are. If you have slender fingers or your fingers shrunk, just place your thumb and index finger to gently push the opening close until it is tight enough. 
2. With an adjustable stick, you have to first wear the ring around the stick and rotate it around the smaller end of the stick (based on finger measurement). When you are sure it is tight enough, gently pull it off the adjustable stick and wear it on your finger to be sure it fits. 

Adjustable rings everything you need to know

What rings cannot be resized?

While it is smart to use a person’s ring size to make a ring purchase, they may need to resize a ring down or up. And while this is a service a number of jewelers offer, sometimes it is not up to them as some traditional rings cannot be resized.  Some examples of rings that cannot be resized are eternity bands, tension rings, stainless steel, tungsten, or titanium rings, channel set ring, rose gold rings, as well as rings made of made of unconventional materials, unconventional materials such as resin, ceramic, jade, or wood, quartz or other non-metal material.

Does resizing a ring damage it?

If it is a traditional ring, then there is also a possibility of the ring getting ruined if resizing is not efficiently done or if there isn't enough space around the ring for it to be made larger or smaller that's why high quality adjustable rings for women are becoming a huge trend in the USA nowadays.

What materials are adjustable rings made from?

Adjustable materials can be made out of most materials like gold, sterling silver, stainless steel, platinum, brass, or copper also used for traditional rings except for the metals that are versatile enough to allow movement. They are customised or designed with special features and additions like gemstones. Adjustable rings can be personalised too to suit your taste without worrying about the size and while a variety of ring designs benefit from an adjustable band, you should remember that each material has its wear limit.

Does ¼ ring size make a difference?

Yes, it makes a difference. If it is ¼ or .25 size up, it could be giving the extra room for comfort that you need in a situation of weight gain or bloating or arthritis. Most people just play safe when making the order and ask for ¼ size up. Although you have to be careful, it does not slide when working with oil or water. 
However, while some people may live with a wiggle room with a size¼ of up, a ¼ down may be too tight as it may struggle to pass the knuckle but again, a ¼ size down may just be what you need to have that perfect fit.

How much can you adjust an adjustable ring?

Generally, adjustable rings can expand to about half a ring size. However, it is advisable that, if you can help it, an adjustable ring is only adjusted once to perfectly fit your finger. This is because when reshaped so many times, it weakens the ring, disfigures the round structure, and may eventually end up breaking. Using an adjustable stick, you can carefully adjust the ring often enough to use on separate fingers. Whether you want a ring as a gift for a special someone or as a marriage proposal, or as a symbol for something important or maybe you just love it as an accessory to complement your outfit, then an adjustable ring is your best bet. You can shop a wide range of adjustable rings with adjustable sticks here.
