Do you get your ring(s) re-appraised after sizing down?

I (personally) wouldn’t get it reappraised. Unless the weight is going to make a big difference in the amount you pay for insurance, what good would there be in paying for another appraisal.

The only other reason would be to ensure your stone wasn’t swapped out. If you used a jeweller you trust, that shouldn’t be an issue either. I have never had a reappraisal done, unless the stone was reset in a different setting. In that case, the insurance company would want a new appraisal.

Edited because I need another coffee, hence typo’s. 🙂

I had mine appaised before I had it sized down. Just like you, I lost weight and the ring was falling off.

What I learned is, the value stays the same as long as you don’t take any diamonds off of it. The metal doesn’t affect the value of the appraisal all that much if at all. 

Besides, you only went down half a side, that’s nothing.  I wouldn’t waste my time redoing the whole thing….
