Make sure you really get the ring covered in the glue.

No one will ever know there's glue on the bottom of your ring.

You can change the ring 2-3 sizes with this trick. The best part is that the glue is easy to peel off, so whether you under- or overestimated the size on the first try, it’s super simple to start from scratch again. And you'll be able to return that ring to whomever you borrowed it from as good as new!
