Dearest readers:

Some adjustable ring findings showed up in today’s post, and I need some advice. I want to glue meeples to them and debut them at Essen, which is only a few days away!

Do you think it’s better with a small meeple (probably more durable for more frequent wear) or with a large meeple as a statement ring?

Size matters, right?

Many thanks! And extra thanks for any comments    =)

    Thanks for the votes so far. And comments. They’re very helpful =)
    I choose the wide band because the thinner adjustable ones have a sort of dovetailed shank which I thought might not be comfortable. But I’ll look into it again, thanks for the feedback! =)

    I would wear both of them, although I would prefer the blue one on a thinner ring. Great job. 😉

    Hi all! Thank you for the votes and more comments. Very helpful! Here is an update:

    I’ve worn the ring with a small cyan meeple for a day (you might have seen it in action in the Live Play (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxbIEfpx_Bo) onscreen quite a bit, especially as we flip all the cards at about 58 minutes. And on another day, I had it on and off while I was doing stuff, and am pleased to say it’s comfy and seems durable.

    So, I think I’ll offer it with the large meeple on a ‘order-only’ basis, but will glue up a bunch of these with small meeples to take to Essen.

    One thing I’ve noticed about the wide band is it’s good to customize the fit by getting the size right, but then do a bit more squeezing or opening to fit the finger it’s going on. So my ring is for my right ring finger and I ended up squeezing the band which goes on the thumb-facing edge a bit more, while opening the edge on the pinkie-facing edge a little…that fits me great and is very comfy!

    I’ll keep looking for a thinner-band ring that looks nice and has a large pad for the meeple to recline upon. Must keep our meeples comfortable! =)
