Can Engagement Rings Be Made Bigger?

Engagement rings are not just a symbol of love and commitment; they're an investment in memories and craftsmanship. Just as relationships evolve, sometimes our ring needs to evolve as well. One common question that arises is, can engagement rings be resized? Particularly, can they be made bigger? We at Springer's Jewelers understand the importance of such concerns and are here to share our expertise.

Reasons for Resizing an Engagement Ring

Throughout life, our fingers may undergo changes due to:

  • Weight fluctuations.
  • Life events such as pregnancy.
  • A loving decision to wear an heirloom.
  • Changing the finger on which the ring is worn.

Can Rings Truly Be Made Bigger?

Absolutely. The art of resizing a ring is a testament to the skill of the jeweler. However, the scope of resizing depends on the design, the material of the ring, and the stone settings. While most rings can be modified to fit a larger size, it's essential to understand the intricacies involved.

The Process of Making a Ring Bigger

Resizing is an art and science combined. The process generally involves:

  • Delicately cutting the band and introducing an additional piece of metal.
  • Stretching the ring, although this has its limitations.

However, resizing always comes with a set of challenges. The design and stones embedded might influence how much the ring can be altered without compromising its integrity.

Factors that Can Complicate Resizing

Every ring tells a story, and its design plays a crucial role in that narrative. Some elements that might make resizing a tad challenging include:

  • Intricate designs or patterns.
  • Rings are made from unique materials.
  • Settings with multiple gemstones.
  • Precious heirlooms or vintage rings.

Alternative Solutions to Making a Ring Bigger

Not all rings can be resized, but that doesn’t mean you can't wear them. Some alternative solutions are:

  • Employing a ring guard or sizer.
  • Wearing the ring as a necklace.
  • Exploring Springer's Jewelers’ vast collection for a similar, larger piece.
  • Collaborating with our artisans to recreate the ring.

Cost Implications

While we pride ourselves on our transparent services, the cost of resizing is influenced by the complexity of the task. We recommend scheduling an appointment to discuss the specifics of your ring and receive a detailed estimate.

Care Tips After Resizing

Post-resizing, it's crucial to ensure that the ring maintains its charm and durability. This involves:

  • Regular checks to ensure the stone settings remain secure.
  • Periodic maintenance to retain its gleam.
  • Seeking professional advice if any issues arise.
