Wedding Rings...just Curious
Posted 16 January 2008 - 01:45 AM
I have never been a ring person, but I never take off my engagement/wedding bands for anything. They have been very tight for some time and I managed to get them off the other day. My finger looked so deformed without them and I knew that if I didn't get them back on staight away, I probably wouldn't at all. So I painfully forced them back on and now the thought of having to remove them saddens me.
What are the chances of getting them back on again if I take them off now and if I leave them on, will it matter ?
Probably sounds a little crazy, but the little things sometimes do matter.........

No it doesn't sound a little crazy. We need to hold on to the things that matter as long as possible! I've never worn a wedding band, but I do wear rings. I've had my favorite ones resized. The problem is that the size of my fingers constantly go up and down, so some days that fit great and other days they're too big. UGH!!! Before I would "painfully force" anything back on, I would consider resizing. If they're too tight, they can cut off the circulation which is already happening if you have Raynaud's. So please reconsider not wearing them until you can get them resized.

I can still wear mine but my wedding band was a little big to begin with. My mom has out grown her band, so she went to the store and bought a cheapy gold band which is great cause she doesn't have to worry about it getting lost, scratched, or whatever cause it's just a cheapy.
take care, peanut

I am a ring person so I own a few of them. I had some resized, including my wedding set. The problem is that I had to have it resize twice already. I have gone from ring size 5 to an 8. I hope they don't keep growing.

I couldn't wear mine for several years, due to the reasons you all have mentioned.... and for the reason I talk about below.
For a long time, I had toyed with getting my rings rebuilt, as my rings broke (in the water) while I was washing dishes, stabbing into my finger.
It took me about a year before I could decide on what I wanted to do. I got new bands added on either side and had them built in and the broken band... removed. I'm really pleased with the way they turned out (I also had them resized at this time too).

I can't believe I waited one year to do it. $20 each ring. DO IT!
One good thing though- I can wear a size 9 on my pointer and they are always the ones left over and marked down in the costume jewerly. LOL!
I also got acrylic nails and that makes me feel must better about my hands. If you do that, be sure they don't ruff house you! (TN for hurt you) Tell them your finger are sore!
One thing about Scleroderma is there is always something on the good side... But You Look SOOO Good!
