When buying a ring for a woman and the size of her finger is unknown, it is always best to choose a size that is slightly larger rather than smaller. It is much easier for a jeweler to make a ring smaller if an adjustment is required than it is to make it larger. Choose the metal for the ring carefully as rings made from either titanium and tungsten cannot be resized. It is also difficult to have a ring altered if it has stones on the side of the ring.

  • Q:

    How do jewelers resize rings?

    A:

    The most common method used by jewelers to modify the size of rings is done by cutting the ring at its bottom part and making the necessary modifications before soldering the cut portion back together. To increase the size of the ring, it is spread after the cut is made to a desired size and then a new piece of the same metal is added before soldering it back together. When the size of the ring needs to be reduced, jewelers will cut and remove a strip from the ring and then narrow the band by joining the two ends of the cut part.
