“This ring may be sized down with the addition of a butterfly sizer.”

What exactly is a butterfly sizer? Let us explain.

The innovative and creative individual that he is, Michael Barin came up with a solution to size down very intricate rings and accommodate women with large knuckles. By inserting flexible wings to the inside of the band, he achieved a more comfortable fit for rings that are difficult to slide on, but need to stay securely in place. Women with arthritic hands will be happy to know that the butterfly sizer will allow them to remove rings without any difficulties – the wings open to allow the wearer to slip off the ring and later put it back on again with the same ease.
