I cannot get my ring off my finger. I have tried everything from soaking my hand in cold water, soap, vaseline and have now come to the conclusion that the only way to get it off is to have it cut off.

SO, Could anybody please recommend where I can go to have this done expertly and without pain???????????

La Marina

Sorry cant help you Carol.
My Wife had that problem 18months ago,Unfortunately she was due for an Operation and the Surgeon wouldnt operate until it was off,they tried everything at the Hospital,and settled for cutting it off while she was under sedation,So I hope you find a nicer way to get yours sorted

Do you think that if I went into the Jewllers in the village they could cut it off for me?

Thank you Golfer - I will give this a go in an hour or so - when I've plucked up Courage !! I will let you know if it's still on or off - I know it's gonna hurt OUCH OUCH...........

IT'S OFF.........IT'S OFF..........IT'S OFF...........
I'm still shaking through this experience. It took 2 attempts and 3 of us pulling, tugging wriggling etc. I actually used dental floss. It then got stuck on my knuckle so had the fairy washing up liquid ready and slowly but gradually it came off.
Thank you very much Golfer

Hi Carol - same thing happened to me a few years ago and I went to the small jewellers in La Marina Pueblo in the square and they cut it off for me - and then made it bigger - hope this helps x

Oopps just realised u got it off - well done

Commented Souxie in La Marina 2012-06-27 16:24:57 UTC

Souxie - Just out of curiosity did the jewellers in La Marina do it free, or if not can you remember how much they charged you? - just being nosy really.
It still feels like my ring is there as my finger is still a bit swollen after my op today !!
