I really need a pinky ring.  I have two of them but they are size 5 which is now the size of my ring finger.  I've lost some weight and my finger size has gone down. I was 112 lbs and I'm down to 107 lbs and I do't think I'm going to staying there.  I purchased one the other week.  A leaping dolphin diamonique ring size 5.  It's wide so I thought it would fit.  But it fits my ring finger instead.  Couldn't keep it on my little finger.  So I need a size 4 now & a 5 for my ring finger.  I've stopped wearing my wedding set.  Just too loose. I was wondering if QVC has size 4? I've never seen it. Everything seems to start at size 5.  and up. I can't risk wearing my little 18K dangle padlock.  & key ring.  That one I can't wear on my little finger anymore.   i wear my enegement ring on my middle finger now.

Maybe get a ring size-adjuster or take the rings to a jeweler and have them put some on.

You can get these at WM.  I had to use them for a couple of rings but now my poor arthritic knuckles keep my rings one Smiley Surprised

Funny.  Just got two gold rings sized at a cost of $250.  Beautiful job and they look like new.  In fact the jeweler asked me if i wanted to sell them.  My finger is the same size, but could not get them over my knuckle.....another sign of aging i guess.  (They are solitaires -- so there is one stone.  One is my original engagement ring and the other was an upgrade engagement ring from hubby when sold his business.  I learned sizing costs do depend on the stone placement fyi.)

@monicakm @SilleeMee  Yeah.  That's what I'm going to have to do that.  That dolphin ring that arrived today is SO cute!  Shame I can't keep it on my pinky.  It fits my ring finger perfectly. My knuckles are small.  It's weird.  I have average size hands. I'm slight everywhere else.  Everything gets smaller when you lose a lot of weight.  My neck, my feet, etc.  Places you don't think of.  But they do.

If you prefer gold, there is this kind where you, or a jeweler, wraps it around the inside of a ring:

I've had rings downsized and it was free or you even get a little something back from the jeweler.

I don't think the OP wants to have the rings made smaller at a jeweler but needs a temporary adjustment in case there's weight gain.

i wear a size 4.5 on my right ring finger, size 4 on the left.  Any jeweler can resize a ring for you.  Most jewelers prefer gold rings... 10k or better.

CONGRATS on yr healthy weight loss!!  Woman Happy

 

My finger sizes change all the time, based on water retention, & esp given whatever season it is, for instance.  (Thicker fingers in summer, Thinner in Cold Winters)      Plus, otherwise, no consistency!  I'd be a waste of money for me to have a Jeweler resize them.

 

I use this following idea for the varying, frequent, sometimes seasonal changes in ring sizes.  (It merely occurred to me, I've not seen this before.)

 

I order THIN plain ring bands, a size smaller, & place them on my finger last, thru securing the larger ring, first & foremost on my fingers, first.  This "size smaller" ring is   thin enough that if the finger suddenly, or without notice, swells, the thin band can just be (wire cutter)  clipped off my finger, in emergency.  So thin, this band is hardly seen. Yet this size smaller, last slipped on my finger, secures the larger ring(s).

 

     This idea, can be used in *any* metal.  I started out with "Stainless Steel" thin ring. They "keep rings on my finger, since they're a size smaller." And often, they're hardly noticeable (cause they're, at least, part tucked under the larger ring).
