Adjustable Shank / Arthritic Shank- Arthritic ring shanks open wide to go over enlarged, swollen, or arthritic knuckles easily, then close and lock securely for a safe and comfortable fit. These shanks are available in a wide variety of widths, styles and all finger sizes, in 14K yellow or white gold and platinum, to replace the conventional shanks of lady’s and men’s rings. These shanks need to be used for several reasons by certain people.
Osteoarthritis affects an estimated 21 million adults. It’s a degenerative joint disease in which the cartilage that covers the ends of bones in the joint deteriorates, causing pain and loss of movement as bone begins to grind against bone. It’s the most prevalent form of arthritis. It has often been misnamed ‘wear and tear’ arthritis. It’s often genetic and causes fingers to ache and become stiff and numb. They can become enlarged and gnarled. Small, bony bumps called Heberdens nodes may also appear on the end joints of the fingers. Similar knobs called Bouchards nodes can appear on the middle joints of the fingers. It has been proven that more women than men have osteoarthritis of their fingers, especially after menopause.
The true size for the ring is not the size needed to pass the enlarged knuckle, but is found where the ring is worn, at the base of the finger. When dealing with enlarged knuckles, the choice is between putting up with a bad fit, or not wearing jewelry on the affected finger at all. Therefore, adapting the ring with an adjustable shank presents the very best alternative.
