I don't think a ring should be a problem.

Good topic! I've always wondered about this.

I don’t wear it anymore, as I’ve lost so much weight that it now can fit on my middle finger. When I tried to wear it, it clanks on the side of the neck when I play.

I followed Matthew McAllister's example and got a slim one - never had a problem.

Interesting thread. I took mine off for a few years when my husband and I went sailing into the sunset. Kept it off for a few years after returning home but put it back on last year when I took up the guitar! (Have you noticed how few married women don’t wear rings?)
If I had seen this thread first I might have reconsidered- it cost me lots of $$ to resize it :) However I have enough difficulties playing guitar I would never notice if the ring itself was causing a problem.

Neither my wife not I ever had wedding rings or any kind. Then again our marriage was on the "rock" from day one.
