  1. I have very large joints but love to wear rings. Please advise the procedure to have two of the rings I currently own into rings that will no longer flop over.

    • Hello Jeanne,
      I’m sharing a blog post about just one of my potential solutions for ring spinning. This post lists the other blog posts with hinges and other solutions. I’d recommend reading rach of the referenced posts. I further recommend figuring out your knuckle-to-finger differential, (there’s a video about it in this post). It is at that point that we look at your particular rings and armed with the knuckle-to-finger differential information, can talk about the most effective solutions.
      This is the first of the blog posts to read:
      I look forward to hearing back from you. Email me at
      Your Personal Jeweler,
