is it worth re-sizing a sterling silver ring? S ♥ J ♥ L 1 child; 3 angel babies; Philadelphia, PA, United States 3835 posts

When I was pregnant my SO bought me a new promise ring. When I went with him to pick it out - I was pregnant, and swollen. I'm now almost 7 months post partum and the ring is big on me :( I've been dealing with it but I feel like my fingers have gotten even smaller and the ring is just getting bigger to the point I would wave and it will slip off.



It's sterling silver, and he paid a decent price, around $150, and I don't want to just put it in my jewelry box and forget about it.



think it's worth to get re-sized? SO said it's completely up to me since he said come tax season he wants to start possibly doing some ring shopping (so he's been hinting here and there).



One jewelry store said it would be about $40 to resize it but over time the prongs that hold the main stone have loosened and that costs another $50 to tighten.



Currently my ring is tightened on my finger by one of those silver bendy sterling silver things you can buy at piercing pagoda but they always scratch everything and so uncomfortable!

Just get a ring snuggler. They make it fit tighter.

snuggies at walmart or claires are only like $3 they're comfy and don't scratch anything

If its an important piece of jewelry its worth resizing.

I'm pretty sure that's the name of the thing I have on it now (or something like it) but I just looked up the ring snuggler and it looks super uncomfortable? It's only about $5 so I can always just try it.

you can get the little rubber/silicone things that slip on that make it fit better.

that's what the jeweler said. I'm just wondering if it's worth the $$ for me to do it or would you ladies just deal with it?



the ring is a size 8 and I'm a size 7.5 but for that little bit of difference it is sooo big!

I have them on my rings, and for the thin ones, it's really not that bad at all.
I have a thick James Avery ring and I can't wear the snuggler on it, because it is super uncomfortable.

thanks! someone above mentioned it but if you have first hand experience with it and say it's comfy then I might go out and buy it to give it a try! if I don't like it I can always wait until we have the extra $40 to get it re-sized.



I just figure if I'm going to get it resized, I might as well get the prongs fixed before the stone falls out, and that's another $50 - and right now with Christmas and planning to move out, I can never get $90 without it going to something else lol

ring snuggies work good, but if its still to big put a bandaid around it and then put the snuggie thing over it... it works really well!

I would. I got my hundred dollar promise ring resized and it was the best decision ever. It felt perfect on my finger. I barely realized it was even there.

I'm thinking of making a ring bigger, my fingers never went down from having my sons so I'm a 9 right now and they likely wont go down. But I have an antique ring my grandmother gave me on my 16th birthday. It was the promise ring my grandfather gave her. I'd love to wear it instead of it sitting in my jewelry box.
