Re-Sizing A Ring

Posted on March 6, 2021 at 7:40 PM

 If you wear a ring on a regular basis, then it is almost inevitable that sometime down the line, you will need to get a ring sized. Whether it’s a wedding/engagement ring or a family heirloom passed down that has found its way onto your finger, a proper fit for a ring is essential. Too loose and you are at risk of losing your ring. Too tight and at best it can be uncomfortable, at worst, you may need to have the ring removed because the tight ring caused your finger to swell. I have seen this several times, and trust me it is not pretty and can be very painful. Keep in mind that fingers can shrink or swell for many reasons. Some are temporary and others not so much. Things that may cause this can include weather, hormonal changes, pregnancy and weight changes.


So what do you do in any of these situations? You get your ring sized.


 When you have made the decision to re-size your ring, your first step will be to find a jeweler you trust and like to work with. Jewelry is very personal, so you should feel comfortable with the person working on your treasures.


 Next is to figure out what is the best way to re-size your ring. Some are more permanent than others and some can be attached and removed fairly easily without any change to the ring. Also, not all of these options are available to every ring. For example, if you have an eternity ring, very little work can be done to the actual structure of the ring, otherwise the setting will be compromised and you may lose your stones. Certain types of settings can be sensitive to changes in the shoulder angle (the part of the ring shank that’s on both sides of the settings), making any adding or subtracting metal from the shank risky due to stress on the stone.


So what are some of the options?


 First, let’s go over adding or cutting out some ring shank material to make the size bigger or smaller. To increase the size of your ring, a cut will be made in the shank and metal will be added to get desired size. For a smaller size, a section will be removed to get desired size. Both of these make structural changes to the ring, and although the most permanent and stable way to resize a ring, it’s not something you want to do often.


So what if the changes are less permanent like pregnancy?


 Sizing Beads might be a great option. To make your ring smaller, the jeweler will add two small metal balls on the inside of your ring. This is typically done for roughly half a ring size and does a great job at keeping your ring from spinning or sliding off your finger. Once the balls are installed, you can wear your ring like that for as long as you are comfortable with the fit or you can remove them for any reason, without causing any damage or change to the original ring.


 A ring guard may be the quickest and least expensive option on this list. This is a small piece of metal that is attached to the inside of the ring that pushes against your finger while wearing, making the ring a smaller size. This can be done fairly quickly compared to the other options and can be removed just as easily without any changes to the ring.


 Although this is not an exhaustive list, these tend to be the most common methods used and the ones we see most at the House of Jewels. There is no right way, only the way that will work best for you.


 So if you have a ring that doesn’t fit correctly and comfortably, please come on in and let’s discuss which would be the best option for you. Jewelry is meant to be worn and enjoyed, not locked in a box

The last circumstance I slogan Gail Dines speak, at a colloquy in Boston, she moved the audience to tears with her characterization of the problems caused by means of obscenity, and provoked sniggering with her sharp observations upon pornographers themselves. Activists in the audience were newly inspired, and men at the event – multifarious of whom had not viewed obscenity as a muddle first – queued up afterwards to guarantee their support. The scene highlighted Dines's explosive charisma and the deed data that, since the death of Andrea Dworkin, she has risen to that most baffling and captivating of public roles: the community's paramount anti-pornography campaigner.
