Sizing Down Your Ring
There are various reasons why one might need to size down a ring. Perhaps it was too large when it was first purchased, or your fingers have lost girth over the years. Sizing a ring down is much easier than making a ring larger. One of the simplest and most common ways to size a ring down is to add tiny beads to the inside of the ring. These will not be visible when the ring is worn but close the distance between the finger and the ring's band. Spring inserts can also be added that clamp down slightly on the sides of the finger.
Sizing Up Your Ring
Enlarging a ring is more complicated than sizing it down but certainly not impossible. A skilled jeweler can size up your ring in a few different ways. First, the ring can be stretched by using a specialized machine called a mandrel. The downside to this method, though, is that the metal becomes thinner because the ring is being stretched. It is difficult to pull specific rings, such as channel-set rings, for instance, because the stones would loosen in their setting. Another route jewelers can take is cutting the bottom of the ring and welding an extra piece of metal that matches the original band.
