I got my ring back from the jeweler on Monday after having it sized down 1 size (7->6) and it’s misshapen. Not badly and Fiance explained why it is so it makes sense but I’m still upset. Maybe I’m seeing things or overreacting but it look like instead of taking it out of the bottom of the ring they took it out of the bottom side. The only explanaition I can think of is that it’s because the bottom center is thinner and it might compromise it?? It isn’t noticeable while I’m wearing it but I’m worried that when I get married and solder my rings together it’ll present a problem. I haven’t gotten my wedding ring resized yet (FI didn’t think to take both of them in) but I’m worried that the way it was done will make it so that they sit unevenly. :/
Am I making a mountain out of a molehill? Has anyone soldered together two rings that have been resized? I’m kind of regretting getting my ring resized now…

@chouette: I haven’t have my rings resized and I don’t plan on soldering them together but if you think it will be a concern then you should contact the jewelry company who resized it. They could explain the reason they resized it that way and if it could cause I problem with soldering. Talk to them BEFORE you have your band resized just in case
Sorry you’re having problems! Good Luck!

It should not be a problem to solder. They just want to make sure the interior circumference matches up.
When my last rings were resized they resized at sides too. I do thin. It does have to do with fact bottom is a higher stress point for wear and damage (smacking palm, etc). To size down they would have cut out part the ring and joined them back together. You do not really want that solder point right at bottom where wear will happen easier.

I honestly don’t see what you mean about it looking weird, can you point it out to me? (I genuinely miss things, LOL). That being said, I’m sure it will be totally fine when they solder them together, but if you’re concerned bring it back and make sure it WILL be OK when they do it.

I honestly can’t notice, but I’m sure if I were in your shoes I’d have a magnifying glass against my e-ring LOL

@LovelyLaura: Haha, I think that might be the case.
Fiance was the one who got it resized because we live 2 hours apart and obviously the jeweler is in his town. I’m moving up there this August so I guess I’ll be the one to talk to them then. It’s reassuring that most other people but me can’t notice!

I had both my e ring and wedding band resized twice and then soldered together. They fit together nicely and there is no uneveness. There shouldn’t be a problem.

I can’t see it, but this won’t be a problem when they solder it together. They will form it to match up 🙂

@chouette: it looks symetrical to me

I don’t see it being misshapen at all.

I’m not really sure what you’re talking about. Is it that the inside of the ring isn’t a perfect circle? When you size a ring down, it’s not going to look exactly the same as it did before. Your ring looks fine.

Yeah, I don’t see it. I wouldn’t worry. 🙂

I think wedding stress might be getting to you. 🙂 Grab a glass of champagne, and do something fun. I can’t see what is weird on your ring, in fact I can’t even tell which side they reduced it from. And I bet when you take them in to get sized and soldered the good jewelry people will do what they do best. 🙂

It doesn’t look misshapen to me, either.
