Resizing a Ring
If too loose or too tight, there are a few ways we can resize your ring:
- Cutting & soldering: A cut is made and metal is either added or removed to adjust the size to fit.
- Sizing beads: placed on the inside of the bottom of the shank, these accommodate slight discrepancies in size for a half size or less
- Spring inserts placed inside the shank adjusts to 1-2 full finger sizes.
- Chain Repair
A chain after being repaired is never as strong as it was before it was broken. While most flat chain repairs are nearly undetectable, if the chain is very small, lightweight, or badly damaged, there may be some stiffness in surrounding links after the repair is completed. Chains that are more difficult to repair due to their complexities include link chains, like rope and cable chains, and herringbone chains.
Constant wear of rings can cause prongs to wear and the potential for losing a precious gemstone to increase. Something as simple as exposure to bed sheets or gardening can affect prong strength. Depending on the severity of the prong wear, they will be replaced, re-tipped by adding a metal to the top of the prong, or replacing the entire prong head. When repaired, prongs will match in size, shape, and dimension.
