Sizing Your Ring
If you’re unsure if your ring is properly sized for your finger, note that it should come off and on with ease. Your ring should not slide around when your hands are by your side; however, it should also not be so tight your finger bulges over it or under it. Rings can often be sized to be smaller and larger depending on your needs. Learn more about ring resizing below.
Sizing a Ring to be Smaller
This is typically the easier transition to make in ring resizing. However, consideration must be paid to the materials and design. When your ring is too small jewelers simply cut a piece out and mold the ring back together. However, if it is a harder material like platinum the ring will not be as easy to mold. Rings with highly decorative designs also have to be handled with extreme care. If not handled properly the design could be disrupted and the ring could look as though it was shoddily made. When the ring is resized the design should look polished and without breaks.
Sizing a Ring to be Larger
Ring resizing is slightly more difficult when enlarging the ring. For making a ring larger there are two main methods:
- Adding Material
The first method, stretching, is simply stretching the material out so it can fit the finger more comfortably. However, when a ring is resized this way it can only be stretched slightly without hurting the integrity of the ring and its material. When ring resizing is done this way it can only be enlarged by about half a ring size.
Adding material to the ring is essentially the reversed process of how rings are made smaller. Material is cut out and matching metal is added in and molded together to create a larger ring that remains strong and intact. Regardless of the method used the end result should be professional and clean without any visible problems.
Ring Resizing Cost Factors
Due to the varying nature of rings, the costs fluctuate depending on the complexity and the makeup of the specific piece. Bring in your ring to Brittany’s Fine Jewelry and let the experts evaluate costs to resize your ring.
