    Ring Sizing

    I didn't find the other threads about rings, so: I'm looking for a good place in the Ames-WDM area that would do a great job, but not be very expensive to resize rings.

    How much is it supposed to cost? How long does it usually take to get resized?

    Thanks!!

    They turn things around in a day and unless the ring is something unusual I only think it costs around $20.

    Price various with the metal, width of band, sizing up or down, and if you're sizing up, it may cost more. I don't think there is a one-price-fits-all approach to this because each piece can be different.

    That's a good point. I've got 4 to size down. 1 men's wedding band and my 2. The 4th is really thin....

    Re: Ring Sizing

    Ames silversmithing. I'd be remiss if I didn't recommend them. My wife's wedding ring had a loose stone earlier this year and I took it to them and they tightened it free of charge even though I didn't buy it there. That kind of service really means something.

    In Des Moines I would recommend Joseph's. That's where I bought my wife's engagement ring and they also could not be nicer and more helpful. One of their associates sat down with me for an hour making sure I was educated on the way diamonds are rated and showed me various stone/settings. At the end of it all the associate told me to look around other places and come back if I wanted to. I bought the engagement ring before I left. When they resized our rings I want to say it took about 3 days to get it back.

    Would that still apply if I had them reset two rings into one?

    I assume, but just ask 'em. Last year I had my 15 yr old wedding ring remade in platinum instead of gold (since gold turns my fingers green...), and changed the shape of the band just a bit. So, it looks nearly identical, all the stone are in the same place but with a squared band back. The sent the original ring out to have have a mold made and then reset everything. When I picked it up they told me lifetime free sizing. I've taken them on the offer once, as the modified band needed to be tightened up.

    Can't recommend those guys enough!
