Hi, Andrea! Thank you for replying! I am brand new to this web site,
and to yours - No, They simply told me that Rio Grande no longer
carries them. Thanks to one of the folks here at Orchid, I did find
some through Walter Drake - one of those mail order houses that sell
all kinds of little doo dads for the home - but they are not like the
ones I was looking for. They are basically a strip of plastic you cut
to size. I'm sure that if I can't find the ones I was looking for
that these will be the best solution so far, but I'd still like to
see if I can find the kind I used to wear, which looked a little more
I've had some nice and helpful replies here - regarding cutting
rings and inserting a clasp/spring - but at least 2 of the rings I
need to address are platinum wedding bands with diamonds set the
whole way around. On my wedding ring, I'm too sentimental to cut it
or modify it - there was a cute story about the ring being too big,
then my husband and I could not get vacation time, so we eloped,
then the ring came with us, and it almost fell offf during the
ceremony. My engagement ring hold it on, but it's really too large.
I also have some problems with my fingers changing size - not just
knuckle swelling, but more hormone related, so even the "surgical
methods" with a hinge wouldn't really work for me.
Thanks again for replying!
