Well later happened.
And it wouldn't come off. I tried all the tricks in the book: Windex, ice cubes, and even dental floss. It wouldn't budge. Then I finally went to my friend who is an ER nurse.
This was part of the process. My finger turned a slight shade of blue after this, but she managed to get it off.
Don't worry all is good now and my finger is still in tact :) Now it just needs to get cleaned and probably resized. LOL.
Ladies, make sure you take those rings off once in a while. I learned my lesson.
