Usually a ring can be adjusted two sizes in either direction. More dramatic changes can begin to impact the look of your ring.
Increasing the size of a gold or silver ring typically requires gently hammering the ring around a sizing shaft. This will cause the shank of the ring to thin slightly and is a skilled art. St James Jewlery Shoppe has over 30 years experiance resizing rings – we pride ourselves in the immaculate standards we hold all of our work to.
To increase a ring more than one full size or to adjust a ring with stones, we may prefer to make an incision in the ring to remove or insert extra metal. Although most jewlers will leave a visible seam or invisible weak point, we resize all rings to eliminate the risk of flaws.
