How to Adjust Your Ring Size
Tips For Resizing Your Ring
Many people go out and buy a ring guard when they are having problems with their ring size. However, you can simply follow these super simple steps using stuff you already have around the house to create your own ring guard!
Start by grabbing any kind of tape you own. This tape can be double sided or regular tape, but you will want it to be clear.

Next, you are going to want to cut your tape with scissors for a clean edge. After you have your strip of tape you are going to fold it in halves until it fits the inside of the ring.
For this part, the longer you cut the piece of tape the larger DIY ring adjuster you are going to end up with.

Now you are going to want to press your folded tape creation onto inside the ring on the bottom barrier. Again, it is important to keep in mind that the longer you make the piece of tape the thicker the tape will be when you fold it up causing it to be even tighter.
BONUS: This PMC Leaf Ring is the perfect clay creation to test your new skills out on! You only have one more step and you are all done!
Finally, you are going to want to cover the tape on the bottom of your ring with a coat of clear nail polish. This will lock the tape in place and keep it from sticking to your finger or falling off when you switch out your rings.
You will want to let the nail polish dry over night, and just like that you have your very own DIY ring guard!
BONUS: This method also works fantastically on wooden jewelry like these Whimsically Simple DIY Wood Rings.
BONUS TIP: If you are looking for an even easier method to try and shrink your ring just a tiny bit. You can coat the bottom interior of your ring with clear nail polish.
For every three coats of nail polish you apply, you can shrink your ring by approximately one milimeter. However, you must be careful to let the nail polish fully dry before applying another coat, and leave it overnight before wearing it!
