    This is information I feel sure that I will be passing on to someone in the next week! Note to self: only buy gold rings! OK!
    I had Calla resize a tight ring and I am SOOOO happy I did it. THANKS, Calla.

      Hello Dr. Valerie,
      It was a pleasure to get your ring sized properly for you. I’m loving that gold will continue to be your metal of choice. I’m so happy you came by and wrote your happy comment!

    Great information on the danger of alternate metals bands.
    Now for most people obviously this’d never happen, but for the few, who do get in an accident or have an allergic reaction, I’m thinking they’d wish they’d chosen gold or platinum!

      Hello Tracey,
      I’m a better safe than sorry type, especially since I get called regularly to saw off people’s rings for them. Gold and Platinum yes. All the other’s “nope!”

    Thanks for sharing Calla! Lots of interesting options. unfortunately I did not know some of these and had to have my ring sawed after we were first engaged. He had bought a ring that was too small but I *really* wanted to put it on! Not smart when the ring is too tight already and you’re in a tropical climate (Maui). Needless to say, I ate nothing on the flight home and went straight to our jeweler as soon as we got into town!

      Hi Anne,
      What a story! I’m glad it all worked out in the end. Enjoy your happy marriage with your ring that fits!

    Calla, this is good information. I think anyone with a ring should read this post. Removing a too tight ring can certainly be a daunting task. Hopefully I never get trapped in one of my rings, but like watching Bear Grylis and learning survival techniques that I hope I never need, I am certainly happy to know what to do if I’m stuck out on a snowy mountain at night and what to do if that ring won’t come off! Thank you for educating.

      Hi Lynn,
      I’m picturing you making an igloo and then icing your finger and removing a too tight ring and thinking, “reading blogs and watching escapist TV has its uses!”
      I watch that stuff too!
      Your Personal Jeweler,
