In brief: String

Place string or heavy thread under the ring than wrap the string around the finger proximal to distal as tight as possible.
Then grab the proximal end of the string and forcefully unwrap the string. Because the string is under the ring it will push the ring toward the end of the finger and therefore remove the ring.
