We’ve all been there: Talking ourselves into buying that vintage cocktail ring, even though it’s WAY too big for our fingers. Or hopelessly staring at our favorite pair of chandelier earrings that we’ve worn maybe once, cringing at the thought of how terribly heavy they were for our poor earlobes.
The earrings and rings sit in our jewelry box, waiting for that one day to be worn again. And what do we do? We buy that ring, thinking we’ll figure out a way to make it work – because we love it so much – when in reality it will never see the light of day… until
BlingGuard showed up!
As a jewelry lover, I know the trouble one has with getting each piece to fit perfectly. So, when BlingGuard sent me their bling lifesavers, I couldn’t wait to test these babies out!
BlingGuard is a line of effective, innovative “fashion fixes” that keep your jewelry locked in place as you go about your daily (or nightly) routines. These fashion fixes are the solution to discreetly keeping your loose-fitting jewelry in place.
Created by Jenny Moore, BlingGuard was born to solve Jenny’s real-life dilemma of her engagement ring not sitting perfectly on top of her finger, even after a professional fitting. She solved her problem by creating BlingGuard, a collection of ring guards and
Before: Before: Loose-fitting ring
I first tried the BlingWraps ($14.99 for 30) — technologically advanced, invisible ring guards that help keep rings from twisting, turning or sliding by adding 1+ ring sizes to your finger. BlingWraps use a patented hypoallergenic, latex-free “padlock” design that is invisible under your rings while keeping them in place.
They come on small sheets in an adorable, travel-friendly box. You simply take out one band, pull off the backing and wrap the band around your finger. TIP: Make sure your fingers are clean and lotion-free, so that the band can stick more securely.
You then slide your loose-fitting ring on top of the wrap, securing it in place. The discrete, clear wrap is not visible under the ring, nor is it uncomfortable. It kept my ring in place while I moved my hands around all day long. But by no means was the ring “stuck.” I could freely take it on and off — and the wrap’s adhesive did not stick to the ring or ruin its finish either.
I believe these wraps are perfect for both day and night. They did not come off when I washed my hands. In fact, though they are disposable, you could get away with using each a few times.
They are perfect for concerts or clubs, where you are dancing up a storm and throwing your hands all over the place. Since our fingers tend to swell and shrink throughout the day, keeping the wrap on even a well-fitted ring will give it that extra snug feeling (just in case), so you don’t lose it.
Next, I tried the BlingDots ($14.99 for 45 pairs) — earring supports and stabilizers that keep your earrings in place. These cushiony-soft, hypoallergenic foam backs relieve the weight and pressure from your earrings, positioning them perfectly on your earlobes.
They give earrings extra security and an extra lift – preventing your earlobes from sagging. They can be used with any type of earring, whether they are long, clip-on or post.
I took a BlingDot off of its sheet, secured it right onto the back of my earlobe and pierced a heavy earring through it. Even without the back, the earring already felt securely positioned.
After I added the back, my ears didn’t feel weighed down and my earrings did not sag. As the day went on (after constantly moving around) my earrings did not loosen, and the BlingDots did not reveal themselves — they stayed firming in place, even with the
summer heat. TIP: For extra-heavy earrings, double up the BlingDots for even better support!
Our Managing Editor Theresa Romano got a chance to try out some BlingDots and BlingGuards, too! See how they work and what she thought of them HERE:
