Hello !
I need to hear your opinion about re -sizing eternity ring,
my Eternity is size 3.5 right now but I need it to be like 3.75.
so I asked to the jeweler about it . the jeweler is saying that We can adjust the size 1/4-1/2 bigger without a problem
but the price is $264.


I did ask future re size when I bought it to make sure that I can change size it to bigger and the cost.
the jeweler told me that up to 0.5 size bigger is no problem in the future ( but make small is diffrent story )
it's just cost $50-$80 around + shipping.
I think I still have the E-mail which menthion about it.

now they are saying that The adjustment will cost you $264. This includes the adjustment, tightening the stones, polishing and shipping it back to you. I wonder if the price is normal???
please let me know what you think?

thanks for reading.

I am sorry, but I haven't really heard of resizing an eternity ring. The only thing I can think of is that perhaps they are removing metal from the inside of the ring. I think the only way you can determine if the price is reasonable is if you get an estimate from another jeweler.

hi! diamondsseeker :wavey:

thank you so much for reply.
Eternity can re size if for only small size change like only 1/2 up bigger.
what's really bother me is the seller told me that **oh, don't worry , you can make size bigger up to 1/2
and cost is just $50-$80 ( and shipping ) anytime in the future* so I bought it.
I did ask about it before I buy it because I know that Eternity size change is not something
easy thing.

now the seller is not working at the company and they told me the price.
feel cheated...

I've heard of making an eternity ring larger by grinding out some of the inside and to make it smaller, add a small band of metal inside the ring. That quote seems ridiculously high to me.

I just came back from my jeweler and he said it'd be $25-$35 to grind out my platinum eternity band 1/4 size, so your quote is absurd for the small amount they would be doing. Check around locally, you'll get a better deal.

Go shop around locally and find out the price.

But I would also find out how they plan to make it larger and make sure it does not affect the integrity of the setting.

I agree with dreamer and I was also under the impression that you couldn't re-size an eternity ring. i'd be interested to see how this turns out.
