Resizing a ring smaller:
A portion of the ring will be removed from the bottom of the band and the ring will be soldered back together again and reconstructed into a circular shape, polished, and returned to you.
If pavé diamonds are set into the band, we want to avoid needing to resize down too far as we risk stretching and loosening the diamond settings in the process of making the ring round again with a new smaller circumference and the stones may fall out over time. We take special precautions to retighten these settings during the resizing process but it's important for you to know that once these settings have been stretched during resizing, they technically aren't as strong as the original ring.
Resizing a ring larger:
A portion of the ring will be added to the bottom of the band and the ring will be soldered back together again and reconstructed into a circular shape, polished, and returned to you.
Adding metal to a ring means you will now have two solder seams at the base of your ring. For this reason, as long as pavé diamonds aren't involved, we generally prefer to size down rather than up.
