Have you ever tried to take a ring off of a swollen finger?


It can be a painful and frustrating experience. 


Fingers swell for a variety of reasons – summer heat, intense workouts, pregnancy, even a salty diet can be to blame. 


But there is another major culprit that affects 3 million people in the U.S. each year – arthritis


What is Arthritis?


According to the Mayo Clinic, “arthritis is the swelling and tenderness of one or more joints.”


With a variety of forms, arthritis can cause pain, stiffness, and general discomfort. 


Arthritis affects many areas of the body, especially the lower back, neck, and, you guessed it, the hands


And along with the pain and swelling, some people get bony knobs on their fingers. 


As you can imagine, the knobs and swelling can make wearing your wedding ring - what is supposed to be a beautiful sign of commitment - painful.


It can also make it very difficult to take your ring on and off. 


How to take a ring off a swollen finger:


According to the American Society for Surgery of the Hand, there are a few tricks to getting a ring off of a swollen finger. 


  1. Use a lubricant on the ring and finger. This could be soap or even Windex. 
  2. Hold your hand over your head for up to 10 minutes while icing your ring finger. 
  3. Lastly, you can wrap your finger with string to compress the swelling (check out these detailed step-by-step pictures). 

In extreme cases, you may have to resort to getting your ring cut off at a jewelry store or even at the emergency room. 


If none of these options sound like an ideal solution for you and your arthritic fingers, we have one that does not require any Windex, ice, or string.


And it allows you to show your commitment to your spouse without dealing with the discomfort of a restrictive metal ring. 


The solution? A flexible silicone ring from SafeRingz


Silicone rings: The best rings for arthritic fingers. 


It is pretty clear that gold rings and arthritis just do not mix. 


But silicone rings, unlike metal rings, are flexible, comfortable, and adjust to swelling. 


Silicone stretches and moves with your finger. So, if your fingers swell, it expands with it – eliminating that painful, restrictive feeling of a metal ring. 


But don’t trust any old silicone ring. Trust the original.


SafeRingz has been making high-quality silicone rings for over a decade. 


Our rings are made of medical-grade, biocompatible silicone. Comfortable, flexible, and safe, all SafeRingz are 100% made in the U.S.A.
