Is it possible to change the size of the ring by reducing the weight? Does that mean that if our general body weight changes, our ring size will also get smaller? In this article, we want to explain to you whether changing the size of the body has an effect on changing the size of the ring or not. Stay with us in the Amin jeweler’s blog.
Does losing weight change the size of the ring?
In answer to this question, we must say yes, weight loss changes the size of the ring. Like other parts of the body, fingers can store fat. Although this fat is not as much as other organs, it can be seen even with the eyes. When losing weight, this fat is lost and the size of the ring changes.
Losing weight in the fingers may seem a little strange, but it happens! Just like losing fat on your heels or knees, there are fat deposits under the skin of your toes. These fats protect the bones and ligaments of your fingers and act structurally like white adipose tissue. The fat inside your fingers doesn't have as much blood flow as your belly fat and is only there to protect the finger, but the more fat you lose, the more weight you lose in your fingers.
In many people, body weight decreases with age. Narrower fingers require smaller rings and cannot use previously large rings. Even weather changes can temporarily change the size of fingers. Dehydration also causes narrowing of the fingers, which is not related to the loss of the fat layer around the fingers.

Changing the size of the ring with weight loss is such that, for example, when you lose 10 kg, the size of the ring will be almost 2 sizes smaller. Of course, we must mention that there is no special rule for narrowing fingers for every kilogram of weight loss. Because due to individual differences and differences in the anatomy of people's bodies, it is not possible to predict how much the ring and ring diameter will decrease in case of weight loss. In some people, this difference is not so big, but in others, it clearly changes the size of the finger.
How to increase or decrease the size of the ring?
After a period of weight loss, it is possible that your ring size will be slightly larger for your finger. Fortunately, gold shops can easily measure your finger and reduce the size of your ring accordingly and deliver your ring to you with a new size.
To make a ring smaller, the gold repairer first cuts the ring and cuts and sets aside a portion to make the ring tighter. Then its two ends are welded together and the ring returns to its circular state. To enlarge the ring, after cutting the ring, the goldsmith stretches it until it reaches the desired size. Then it uses other metals to fill this gap.
Generally, jewelers will cut the ring to make it larger or smaller and then reweld the ring. At the end, ring embroidery is done exactly on the same part where the cut is done. But be aware that after resizing, the rings will weaken from the place where they were cut and reworked. It doesn't matter which part of the ring this cutting and welding is done. In any case, if too much pressure is applied to that part, the possibility of the ring breaking will be high. Therefore, it is better to be careful when buying and get a ring that can be resized so that you can easily adjust it to your desired size.
For a ring that is widened for the hand, you can also use silicone glue at home. Pour a small amount of transparent silicone in the inner part of the ring. Then smooth its surface with a piece of wood or plastic so that there are no bumps. Leave the ring in a fixed place until the silicone dries. Depending on the type of silicone, it may take between 24 and 48 hours to dry.
Tips you should know about changing ring size with weight loss
The best time to determine the size of the finger is in the afternoon or at night, because at this time of the day, the fingers are generally at their best size, and as a result, the correct size of the finger is shown.
Also note that the diameter of the fingers decreases in cold weather and increases in hot weather. Or, for example, you should know that humidity or consumption of good and salty foods cause swelling of the fingers. Because salt causes fluid retention and swelling.
