Finger Mate

Does your engagement ring spin or flop to the side of your hand? Does it drive you nuts? Did you try to add those sizing balls and found out they hurt like hell?! Well, there is an answer!! I couldn’t keep this my secret. I would like to introduce you to The Finger Mate.

My engagement ring was my mother’s and she was amazingly generous and decided to give it to Mr. Onion to give to me! She started to get arthritis so she couldn’t get the ring over her knuckle without the ring being so large that it spun around on her finger. Her jeweler installed the Finger Mate on her ring and solved her problem. The amazing thing is I was able to slip the ring on perfectly with no resizing and HOORAY, it doesn’t spin around!! And I’m all set when I get older and have the same problem my mother did.


My engagement ring “locked”


To open the locking mechanism you simply pull up on the stone. It sounds scary but it doesn’t hurt the ring one bit

I’d highly recommend you look into this if you thought there was no other way and you just had to live with your ring spinning. I love it and am so glad that I have a built in long term solution for old age because I plan to live to be very old and very happily married with this ring on my hand!

    Is it something that’s added to your existing ring or does the ring have to be changed?

    What a neat idea! I’m fine with the sizing balls myself, but I can see how they’d be uncomfortable for some. That’s a fantastic way to make sure people can always wear their rings, no matter how swollen their fingers get!

    it is really unique and the best solution i’ve found to this problem. angel — the shank of your existing ring would be replaced.

    the one thing i’d recommend is spring for the same metal! my ring was platinum and my mother decided to save a few hundred dollars and get the Finger Mate shank made in white gold. no one else notices but it drives me nuts! if i had a ton of extra cash i’d have it replaced, but until then, cei la vie.

    that’s pretty cool. my fingers are fatter in the summer and thinner in the winter – this would be a great solution! for those times when you get super bloated too. :)

    I always fall asleep with my rings on (crash on the couch) and when I wake up my fingers are too swollen to get them off…this happen to anybody else?
    The fingermate would be a great solution to that! Only thing is, I’d miss the engraving on my ring :-(

    I think these are way cooler!

    my jeweler showed me both options- and i liked CliQ jewelry because the “superfit techonolgy” is virtually invisible!

    I have one of these rings also! It was given to us by FI’s grandmother, and she had it for the same reason. I love it though!
