- Advice when using ring size adjusters
If you’re trying to fix a loose ring, first determine if you have the correct size. When you find this answer, you can do one of two things: take it to a jeweler to resize it or use ring adjusting technology.
Should you always bring your ring to a jeweler? While this is a common practice, there are some downsides. Jewelers will have to cut and solder the metal, weakening the piece. In addition, not all rings can be resized.
This is why ring size adjusters are a great option, especially wedding ring size adjusters. They only temporarily “change” the size, making the ring comfortable to wear without damaging the materials.
What is a ring size adjuster and what is it used for?
So, what exactly is a ring size adjuster? Ring size adjusters are attachments that make the ring tighter on the finger.
👉🏻Ring size adjusters are perfect for those who are prone to ring size fluctuations, had to buy a bigger ring, or simply bought the wrong size but don’t want to get it resized by a jeweler.
They’re available in different materials and have different sizing mechanisms. For example, a spring insert will reduce a large ring while sizing beads keep the ring upright when it’s only slightly large.
There are several adjusters on the market. Below are the three additional types of adjusters.
- Inserts: horseshoe-shaped inserts that make the ring up to a ring size smaller
- Ring sizing beads: keep the ring upright when it’s slightly loose
- Fold-over device: jeweler installs a latch that opens when you put on the ring and closes to secure the ring
Beads are by far one of the most popular options. A jeweler solders them onto the bottom of the ring, placed so that the ring can still fit over the knuckle. This prevents your ring from turning. Since the jeweler isn’t cutting the metal, soldering beads minimize damage.
Apart from the metal ring size adjusters introduced above, there are plastic ring size adjusters coming into fashion. They can be used all by yourself without the help of a jeweler. Most of these adjusters are mainly clear, but you can find adjusters in different colors such as yellow gold and rose gold.
Depending on the adjuster type, adjusters usually only reduce rings by two ring sizes at the most. If your ring needs to be reduced more than this, you may need to get it resized or use a more advanced adjustment method.
Please keep in mind, these plastic or silicone adjusters usually don’t last forever. This is especially true if your adjuster is made of plastic or silicone; the material can wear away over time. Make sure you check the adjuster occasionally, buy a durable adjuster, or buy several adjusters (they’re very affordable).
The 6 best ring size adjusters
Are you ready to buy a ring size adjuster? Here are our 6 recommendations that are all easy to use!
(1) Adhesive-type Ring Size Adjuster
These ring adjusters are sheets that range from 3 – 10 mm in length. There’s also a DIY section, so you can cut the strips into any size you need. These adjusters are made of soft silicone, providing plenty of comforts with anti-slip benefits.
To insert an adjuster, wipe the ring off with the cloth and remove the strip that fits the width of the ring. Press the sticker on the inside of the ring. Let the sticker adhere for about 10 minutes.
This adjuster has its pros and cons.
The stickers adhere well and are virtually unnoticeable. Since they only give a few size options, you may need to cut and shape the adjusters so they fit on the ring. You also have to wait for the adhesive to stick to the ring.
(2) Clip on Ring Size Adjuster for Loose Rings
Unlike the last product, these adjusters are strips that clip onto the ring. Rather than identifying each spacer by width, it simply gives size to each spacer (from XXS – XXL). They fit both men’s and women’s rings. The product comes with eight spacers.
To use, find the insert that fits your ring. Clip the adjuster to the inside of the ring. Wear the ring—since there’s no adhesive, you don’t have to wait for the adjuster to stick.
These adjusters are beneficial because they’re easy to clip on, are comfortable, and don’t damage the ring.
(3) Slider Invisible Ring Size Adjuster
This adjuster is unique because it uses a memory material to conform to your ring size. These adjusters are invisible, comfortable, safe for all skin types, and they slide over the knuckle. One pack includes 10 adjusters and are available in different ring sizes (keep in mind, you’ll have to choose the product based on your ring size).
To use, set the adjuster and bend to fit the bottom of your ring. Hold it in place for 3-5 seconds. Repeat if necessary.
This adjuster stands out because it’s comfortable, doesn’t tug on the skin, and products (such as soap and lotion) don’t get caught on the adjuster.
However, they’re not ideal for all rings. The adjuster sticks with tabs that attach at the sides. If your ring is skinny, the tabs may stick out and the adjuster may not be secure. Some customers have complained that the tabs also get stuck on hair and other objects.

This is one of the most well-known adjusters because it can fit just about any ring. They’re easy to apply, are completely invisible, and can even link multiple smaller rings. These ring adjusters are made of TPU silicone, safe for those who have allergies and the adjuster doesn’t damage the ring.
To use, place the first hoop around the bottom of the ring and twist to secure. Wrap the adjuster to form more loops. Use as many as you need. Cut off the excess. If the ring is too small, cut out some loops.
The unique hoop design provides the most security. However, it can be easy to use too many hoops, making the ring tighter. Many users have reported this ring doesn’t fit comfortably over the knuckle.
