Sizing Down

To make a ring smaller, the jeweler cuts an exactly measured piece of metal out of the ring, resolders the ring, and then reshapes and polishes it. When done by a professional, you cannot even see where the cut was made!

A master jeweler is an architect, carefully managing the placement of each element to maintain the balance of the jewel. This is very important in resizing rings, because it must look as balanced when it is resized as it did when it was originally created.

Sizing Up

If a ring only needs to be made a bit larger, it will be stretched, warming and expanding the metal, then repolishing. Making a ring significantly larger can require cutting and adding metal. We will consult with you, and give you our best advice regarding resizing your ring.

Ring Sizing

A Service from A&J Jewelers

Rings need to be resized for a variety of reasons: a new wearer, weight gain or loss, or because you want to wear the ring on a different finger. Whatever the reason, it is incredibly important that your rings fit well. A well-fitting ring ensures that you are comfortable, that it is easy to put on and take off, and that you don't lose it. 

A Note for Men

Many men do not wear a ring consistently until they start wearing a wedding band. For the unaccustomed, a ring can feel strange. A ring that is properly adjusted should feel slightly tight, but slide up and down the finger easily. It's normal to take a few days or a few weeks to get used to wearing a ring.

Design

Not all rings can be resized. If your ring has gems set all the way around the band, the work of resizing can damage the stones, or can be extremely expensive. We'll inspect your ring, evaluate the fit, and give you our professional advice regarding the best solution for your ring sizing needs.

Skilled Jeweler

Ring sizing is not a simple task! It requires a skilled jeweler with years of practice. Our jewelers have great experience understanding the properties of metal, the handling of gemstones, and the importance of carefully tending to the aesthetics of re-proportioning a ring.
