I use a cutter that embodies a utility knife blade as a wedge along a portion of the grain that will not stand out. I wedge from the inside of the ring so the small mark the cutter leaves is not noticeable, and then lightly sand it when it is all glued back together. If it is done carefully the ring will break when the cuter has penetrated roughly 1/16". I've put a link to the one I use.

On a slightly different note, I always turn three rings per glass, just in case something goes wrong. I seldom need the third, but occasionally it has saved a glass.
