Getting an engagement ring for the person that you love is a special moment. Shopping for it and finally being able to give it to your loved one is one of the most exciting things that you will have to go through in life.
However, if the ring doesn’t fit, then the whole thing can easily turn into a disaster. No worries, though, as you can easily have the engagement ring resized. You definitely have to keep a couple of things in mind, though, so make sure to remember all of these when having the yellow gold wedding band for her resized.
Have the original jeweller adjust it
You most probably have insurance for the ring you just bought, and the resizing is probably included in the terms. Make sure to bring it to the original jeweller that you brought the ring from so you can save yourself some money. Additionally, the original jeweller also knows the ring best, so they would know how to easily resize and adjust the ring.
A few metals could not be resized
Some non-precious metals — such as titanium and tungsten — cannot be resized. If you are buying engagement bands made of these metals, then you would want to make sure that you are buying one with the right size. Precious metals such as gold, platinum, silver, and palladium can all be resized.
Don’t make dramatic changes
You can only go a size or two (bigger or smaller) when it comes to ring resizing. If you force the ring to be resized way too much, then you would risk the integrity of the ring. However, this rule usually applies to rings that have a couple of stones on them. If your ring has only one stone on it, then you can most probably have it sized up or down more than two sizes.
It should not cost you way too much
As mentioned, resizing is usually complementary and will come for free if you take it to the original jeweller. A typical ring resizing cost will usually be at around $100 if it is not complementary and if there is no metal added when going a size up. All jewellers have different prices, but if it’s way too expensive, then you should try looking for another jeweller instead.
Know that there are risks
There is always a risk when it comes to ring resizing. For example, the stones on your ring could go loose, but the jeweller can most likely tighten it up if needed. The design can also be affected, so always take that into consideration. Always ask the jeweller first if it’s safe and wise to resize the ring before going ahead with the process.
There are different ways to know what your partner’s exact ring size is without getting too obvious. Making sure of this first will save you the hassle and the money of getting the ring resized. Good luck and may you get the sweetest “yes” of all time!
