A jeweller will re-size a ring for you, and it shouldn't cost you much.

They will remove a section of the ring, in this case a couple of millimetres, and re-solder the ring back together.

They will use platinum solder so that your ring can be legally stamped, or retain it's stamp.

DIY is not a good idea if you don't have any experience with precious metals.

If you don't want a jeweler to do it, there is a product  called Ring Guard Solution. It's a clear gel that will last a couple of Months.

Google Ring Guard Solution

Also an item called Ring Snuggies.

Here is a YouTube Video of Ring Guard Solution

Have it done by a jeweler! - Make sure you keep or get a cost reduction for the material they remove and (often) keep.

I would recommend visiting a professional jeweller, due to the sentimental / emotional value of the ring.

You can temporarily line the inside of the ring with layers of adhesive tape until it fits better, or get a jeweler to put a 'ring reduction bar' inside it, which isn't very expensive. However getting it actually resized smaller is a bigger job, and depending on the value of the ring, it might be best to have this done with a jeweler rather than a DIY method.
