Once upon a time, before Facebook turned status declarations digital it was a custom amongst teens for the guys to give their class ring to their steady girlfriend as a public demonstration that they were a couple, which often as not p***** off the girl's mother. Naturally, the ring never fit her and ingenious ways were created to make it fit.
Having the ring resized was not an option, so some girls purchased a ring guard, which was placed around the shank of the ring. If memory serves it rarely worked, so the next best option was to wear the ring on a necklace. Most girls however settled for a strip of athletic tape wound through the band.
I have never removed my wedding band, and I rarely take off the signet ring. However, on 3 occasions since Friday my wedding band has slipped off, twice I didn't notice it gone but Mrs.T did, fortunately quickly. I will have it professionally resized, just not yet. In the meantime I've stocked up on tape.
