LPT: Don’t wear jewelry if you are going to be swimming anywhere the water is cold or even chilly, especially rings and bracelets.

Being in cold water causes a person's blood to leave the extremities and migrate to a body's core to keep internal organs at a steady temp. This causes your fingers to shrink smaller and the waves can then just gently pull off your jewelry.
