A guide to resizing rings

We understand the importance of a perfectly fitting ring – it's not just about comfort, but also about preserving the sentimental value of your precious piece.

We'll walk you through everything you need to know about resizing rings, ensuring that your jewellery fits as beautifully as the day you first laid eyes on it.

Before you jump at resizing a ring, consider the below: 

Know when to resize

First things first, how do you know if your ring needs resizing? Common signs include slipping off easily, feeling too tight or uncomfortable, or spinning around your finger. If your ring exhibits any of these symptoms, it's time to consider resizing.

Find a reputable goldsmith repairer

When it comes to resizing, trust is paramount. Seek out a reputable jeweller with experience in resizing rings, preferably one who specializes in fine jewellery. Look for certifications and customer reviews to ensure you're entrusting your precious piece to skilled hands.

Understand the process

Resizing a ring involves carefully adjusting its size without compromising its structural integrity or design. Depending on the material and design of your ring, resizing may involve cutting, adding or removing metal, or adjusting the band's shape. Your jeweller will assess the ring's current size, metal type, and design to determine the most appropriate resizing method.

Consider the material

The material of your ring influences the resizing process. While precious metals like gold and platinum are relatively easy to resize, intricate designs or gemstone settings may require additional care. Be sure to communicate any specific concerns or preferences with your jeweller to ensure a seamless resizing experience.

Consider the correct size

Before proceeding with resizing, measure your finger size accurately to determine the ideal fit for your resized ring. Be prepared to discuss any concerns or questions you may have regarding the resizing process with the chosen goldsmith repairer.
