How long does it take to get a ring re-sized?

I need to get my engagement ring re-sized (it fits fine, but when it is on with my wedding band, it makes my finger look like a strangled sausage Chat Icon). It only needs a very minor adjustment... how long does this take typically?

It should only take a matter of minutes. I wouldn't let the ring out of my sight while it's re-sized. They should do it right in front of you.

a couple of minutes.

I had mine resized when we went to buy our wedding rings. The guy did it right in front of me.

Wait - one caveat to my previous post -- it's going to be a lot more complicated if you have diamonds all the way around the band...

Thank you! My main concern was that they were going to tell me it would take a few days and I'd have to leave my ring.

My e-ring is a just a diamond solitaire and a plain band, so that should help to avoid any complication.

I had mine resized at Gennaro Jewelers in Bellmore. They did it right in front of me and it didn't take long at all.

I have diamonds all the way around and I had to leave it for a 2 days (luckily the jeweler is a family friend so I felt safe...although sad without my ring).

If they tell you it will take a few days, tell them you're going elsewhere. I'd never let my ring out of my sight -- I don't care how reputable the jeweler may be. They should be able to size it in front of you.

Good luck! Chat Icon

Good post. Both my rings need to be resized, I can't even fit them over my knuckle! Can someone give me an approximate cost???

I don't remember, but I had both of mine done and I remember thinking it was less than I'd expected.

Thanks for the info.

Now, can anyone recommend anywhere to go in Western Suffolk?
