In brief: Other options
If the ring is cutting circulation from the finger, be sure to seek medical attention, especially to consider cutting the ring off with a special tool.

In brief: Lotion
Try lotion or oil or anything else that would make the finger slippery.
Also, when hands are warm they swell so cool hands would help in this scenario.
