After only eight months of marriage (thanks to twelve months of eating Paleo), I have had to resort to switching my wedding band over to my right hand.  Apparently within the 100+ pounds I lost, there must have been a rather significant lost from my fingers as well, because the ring can now easily fall off my finger.

I've visited a few local jewelers  over the past couple weeks, and none can size the ring without creating a seam in its design; something I'd prefer to avoid.  They are giving me options like springs and soldering in bars or blobs of gold... all of which would make it lopsided.  I'm no goldsmith, but it sure sounds simple (coming out of my mouth anyway) to ask that one lay a nice even layer of gold inside the ring to convert it to my new size.  I've gone from a size 12.5 down to a 10.25, and can envision a simple mathematical equation to figure out the delta in the radius of the before and after circles... which should indicate how thick the new gold layer needs to be.

Does anyone know of any goldsmiths that believe like me that adding a layer of gold onto my ring should be straight forward to do?  If so, please reach out and let me know.
