BlogRemove Your Ring Not Your Finger

Getting a ring stuck on your finger is a much more terrifying experience than how it sounds. Sometimes, rings get stuck because they are too small or because it’s hot outside, but oftentimes the finger swells unexpectedly because of an injury, and it’s imperative that the ring be removed as soon as possible.

Please keep in mind that if you are having a medical emergency, do not stop at the jewelry store first. They will be able to help you at the hospital. However, if it’s not an emergency and you just need your ring off, come on by. We’re happy to help, and there’s no charge if we do it.

Advice for if you need your ring cut off:

Try Windex first.
Yes, Windex. Spray your finger with Windex and see if the ring comes off.

If Windex does not work, come to HPerry’s.
Our expert jewelers have top-of-the-line tools for removing rings and lots of experience doing it.
It only takes a few minutes, and no, it does not hurt. We will cut through the shank, without any risk to your finger, and we’ll do it in a way that the ring can be easily repaired.

After we remove your rings.
99.9% of the time, the finger is swollen after we remove the ring. This means that we can not get an accurate finger size measurement, so we will have to wait until the swelling goes down. You can leave with your ring in hand, or you can leave it with us in our time-lock safe with all of our fancy security cameras watching it. Once the swelling goes down, (this may take a week, a month, or maybe longer) we will measure your finger size and our jewelers can repair the ring here.
