I suppose the combination of cold water and many fewer pounds made it inevitable. I should have gotten it re-sized a long time ago. My ring had become so loose that sometimes it would just fall off my finger if I were shaking my hands dry or some such thing.
I guess all I can say is I'm glad it is somewhere that nobody else will find it and sell it or something, not that it was a valuable piece of jewelery from a financial stand point. We were flat broke graduate students when we married and went for cheap and simple, plain gold bands. I'm also glad that it is at least in a location where I know where it is and that it is in a place we love.
Fair warning to all you weight dropping Clydes out there, get your rings re-sized or, at a minimum, don't swim with them on.
Now I'm in the market for another plain gold band.
