What To Do With Gifted Or Heirloom Jewelry That’s Just Not Quite Right

Jewelry is a wonderful gift to both give and receive, but it’s one of the most difficult to get right. Style and size can be particularly hard to guess when it comes to jewelry, and sometimes, like for heirloom pieces, you don’t even get to guess. So whether your new fiancé was off on his guess or your grandfather and you don’t share the same ring size, we have all the info you need on getting your rings to fit your fingers and your style!

First off, if this is an engagement ring that you plan on continuing to wear daily, it is 100% necessary that you buy a ring guard ASAP. What is a ring guard, you ask? They come in many types and materials, but the purpose of them is exactly what it sounds like, to guard your ring from falling off. We suggest Ring Noodles or Blingwraps for a great temporary fix until you can come to see us at South Hills Jewelers where our professionals will resize your ring permanently.

Maybe you’re a doctor and have to take gloves off and on all day, or maybe rings just aren’t for you, but you still want to keep a ring close to your heart--be it a class ring, promise ring, or wedding ring—because of it’s sentimental value. Men and women alike often find that stringing their ring around their neck is a great compromise. Use a simple silver or gold chain the length of your liking, or find a large pendant necklace to display your ring and you’ll feel close to your loved on and stylish all at once.
