Can engagement rings be resized?

When it comes to ring sizing, the closer you can get to your partner’s exact size, the more convenient it will be to adjust the engagement ring to provide a perfect fit since it is one of the most crucial, meaningful and special purchases you’ll ever make. Nothing can beat the feeling of sliding an engagement ring onto your partner’s finger for the very first time and the ring fitting turning out to be perfect. However, while you probably did your best to figure out their ring size, there's always a chance you might have miscalculated even if you’ve held your partner’s hand hundreds of times. It can turn out to be either too tight or too loose on the first try.

Other times when the fitting of the ring might become an issue to some people is due to weight loss or weight gain when the band becomes too loose or tight and also sometimes, simply because they want to wear the ring on another finger. 

Whatever the reason being, the good news is it’s almost always possible to resize your engagement ring. Engagement ring resizing is quite common. If you are facing an issue with the ring fitting it's time to head back to the jeweller to have your ring resized. While the procedure is quite simple, it's not something most people are familiar with. 
For resizing the engagement rings Jewellers use several different methods however two methods are usually employed for engagement rings because of their design and these include upsizing and downsizing ring. To increase the size of the ring, the jeweller will cut the ring and spread the metal in order to fill the gap with additional materials. Afterward, the ring is soldered together and forms a larger size. However, there is nothing to worry about here because once the process is completed, there will be no evidence that the ring was ever cut. To downsize a ring, the jeweller cuts the ring and removes portions of the metal before soldering the ring back together. This is done carefully and precisely to increase the size of the ring without any apparent visual signs that it’s been resized. Since your jeweller will need to add more material to the ring in order to resize it up, it usually costs more to make an engagement ring larger than to make it smaller. 

 

Resizing a ring usually costs from £70 and takes around 3-5 working days. Here at Klarity London branch we also offer an express next day resizing service with charges starting from £120.
