Jewelers who offer ring resizing on jewelry that was not purchased from their store charge anywhere from $50 to $500. The cost is determined by the metal used, the width of the band and how much resizing is needed. The cost of making a ring smaller is at the lower end of the price range, and this price typically does not vary based on the amount of resizing needed.

  • Q:

    Can platinum engagement rings be resized?

    A:

    Platinum engagement rings can be resized, just like other rings although the service may cost more because of the skill and the materials required for the job. Unlike gold, platinum is harder to work with because it has a higher melting point and requires a different set of tools for resizing. Using the same tools used for resizing gold rings on platinum will cause discoloration in the metal.
