How Long Does It Take To Resize a Ring?


Ok, so you got the ring and then you realized it’s a bit too big. Or, too small. Or, just fits kind of, weird? So, what’s next? Obviously, you need some expert help in order to fix the issue. You need your ring resized.

But, hey, not to worry, this is totally common and just another bump in the road as you make your way to the aisle. So, we are here to break it down for you and help you to make your ring resizing go as smoothly as possible.

What Do I Do If I Need A Ring Resized And How Much Will It Cost?

The process of getting a ring resized is pretty straightforward. But, of course, if you have never done it before it can be a little confusing. You can either take it to the jeweler you bought it from or go through another jeweler near you for convenience’s sake.

In regards to cost resizing depends mainly on the type of metal that the band consists of. The price could vary anywhere between $20 to hundreds of dollars. Some metals require more time and effort, so the price mirrors the work put in.

How Long Does It Take?

Resizing a ring takes no time at all, so don’t worry if your wedding is only a month away! The typical resizing job takes an average of 1-2 weeks to complete. If you’re in a total time-crunch, be sure to let your jeweler know and they may be able to speed things up for you. But, 1-2 weeks really shouldn’t be an issue in most situations, as long as you’re organized!

What Can Delay Ring Sizing?

There are not many things that will delay your ring resizing, which is good news. The main issue people have had with delays in the delivery of ring resizes are miscommunication. If you give the wrong size, you may have to have your resized ring resized once again. So, it’s important to get it right the first time.

Another issue would be delivery issues, which is something out of your control and usually has to do with the jeweler or their delivery service. However, other than that if your jeweler is reliable and gives you a date that your ring will be ready, you can pretty much guarantee you’ll have your ring on your finger that day.
