We can re-size most rings whether they are both in our shop or were simply an gift.
Ring resizing is a process in which a ring (of whichever metal or material) is manipulated to fit a larger or a smaller finger. Sounds complicated? Actually, it’s not at all. In fact, once you know what size you need the ring to be, the process is fairly simple!
Resizing a ring down (making the ring shank smaller) is an easy process compared to resizing up. The jeweler will take a small portion of the band out and join the pieces back together. The circular shape is restored, then is soldered back together again.
Upsizing a ring is more intricate and the method varies depending by how much larger you want your ring to be.
If you want a ring resized by half a size, then stretching the band is often the best option. Depending on the materials and design, stretching the band may allow the ring to be resized no more than half a size.
If the ring needs to be resized by more than half a size then it will need to be cut. A jeweler will cut the band on the ring’s shank and add a bridge of whichever metal the ring is made up of to make the difference. Then the jeweler will set the ring back in place through soldering
