Ring Repairs, Ring Sizing, General Ring Maintenance and Ring Manufacture Services

“Never believe or assume it cannot be done! Ask a Goldsmith’s opinion whose occupation and life it is to work with jewellery! Not the lady down the road who use to be friends with someone who use to work in a jewellery shop.”

WE SIZE RINGS SMALLER!

When sizing a ring smaller, in most cases, a small piece from the bottom of the shank/band is removed. The open area is then bend closed and joined together by soldering is shut. The soldered area is then sanded down and polished to hide the worked-on area as best as possible.

WE SIZE RINGS BIGGER!

The ring/band, at the bottom of the band/shank is cut open. It is then pulled open to the correct size and then a piece of metal inserted and soldered shut. As mentioned, it is then sanded down and polished to hide the worked on area.

“The cost of ring sizing is dependent on the alloy the ring is made in; the thickness of the shank/band, the amount of sizes it needs to go up or down, and a couple of other variables that may only be determent when looked at. Best to ask your local Goldsmith, rather than to try and thumb-suck an amount over the phone or by email. In most cases it is: Solders + Labour + Additionals = Cost “
