No sharp edges to rip clothing or scratch skin. Apply to ring while wearing or while the ring is off, whichever you find easier.

How do they feel on your finger?
The ring guard is made of a heavy walled pvc like tubing. The ring guards will size down your ring around 2 full finger sizes. If you need your ring to be significantly less or more in size, these ring guards may not be the best option and we would recommend using a more versatile metal "Spring Ring Guard" instead.
Can the ring guards be modified to fit inside smaller ring sizes?
Yes, the length of the ring guard can be cut down in order to fit into smaller ring sizes. This can be done by carefully using a box cutter or exacto knife. The wall thickness of the ring guard can not be modified, only the length of the ring guard can be modified.
What do they look like while wearing?
The ring guards are a clear plastic material. The ring guard is round and tubular and may not lay perfectly flush with the curve of your ring/band. *Please see our product images for a example of the ring guard placed on a ring.
How do they go on the ring?
The tube shape ring guard has a horizontal split that can be gapped open in order to slide over the lower portion of your ring (the area that sits below your finger while wearing). Make sure to measure the thickness of your band/ring, to ensure you are ordering the correct size ring guards. This can be done by using a digital gauge to measure the thickness/width of the band or carefully obtained with a ruler.
