There are plenty of reasons which will cause your fingers to grow or change over time. It’s not only the normal and natural growth of the body – some other factors such as sudden change of temperature and atmosphere pressure, aging, bone conditions, pregnancy or weigh gain could also turn out to be a reason for feeling your ring too tight around your finger.
This is normally not a concern of a great importance if you need to replace just any ordinary ring. But when it comes to your wedding band, you will be probably more prone to compromise with yourself and wear the ring until it becomes too tight. But how to tell when normally tight becomes too tight? Here are some signs you should not ignore.
- You can’t remove your ring. At least not as easily as you wish you could. If you need to use lubes, soap or sink your hand in cold water before being able to successfully remove the ring, then you need to confess that something’s wrong;
- You can’t even turn it. Being able to freely and easily turn the ring around our finger is a sign that the tightness is still bearable. But when you can no longer perform that action without feeling pain or discomfort, the chances of having serious issues with your ring are already too high;
- You feel your finger tingling. If you have strange and unusual sensations such as tingling, itching or even pain, that’s a sign of blood circulation problems in the area. It means that your ring could probably cause not only ignorable discomfort, but some serious health issues;
- Your ring finger looks different. If there are some observable differences between your ring finger and your other fingers, that’s a red alert. If your ring finger is paler or bluish, if it’s cooler or warmer, if it’s swollen – keep in mind that you need to take action as soon as possible. Remove the ring and resize or change it in order to avoid health issues;
- There is a “muffin top” above your ring. You know what we’re talking about – that excessive amount of skin, which awkwardly stands on top of your ring, making your hands look fatty. That might seem like a mainly aesthetic problem, but it’s actually a sign that your skin and tissue are having a hard time;
- You just feel your ring finger different. It doesn’t need to be painful or swollen. The mere fact that you feel the ring on your finger means that something isn’t quite right.
The tightness of the ring could cause finger trauma, blood circulation and blood vessels problems, and even deformations of the finger. There are many known cases of stuck metal rings, which could only be removed by a professional.
Considering all of the above, maybe wearing a metal ring doesn’t seem as such an attractive option anymore. The good news is you could avoid it by wearing a smarter, safer and much more comfortable option such as a silicone ring. The Maui rings stretch and shrink to match your finger perfectly, so you won’t ever have to experience all the discomforts of the tight ring.
