I am interested in getting my moms wedding band resized, but it needs to be resized UP about 1 full size. It is a plain gold band, nothing fancy.
The problem is it is from egypt, and there is not inscription saying what karat gold it is. I know the jewler will test for what karat gold it is. How much does an average ring resizing cost?

Mine cost 70$ and was about as simple a resizing as yours

well, it will depend on what karat gold the ring is…the higher karat the more it will cost. Plus, since the ring needs to be sized up (they are adding more gold to it) it will cost more then if you were sizing down. I had my ring sized down (half a size) recently and the place I went to charged $45.00. I’m sure it would have been more if I had to size up.
check around and call different places…but they will probably tell you they can’t give you an estimate without knowing what karat gold it is.

At the jewellery store where I work we charge $45 to size down and $65 to size up.

our jeweler did mine for free, DH has bought maybe 3 or 4 things from there…but he’s re-sized all my rings for free.

@memmielee: I spent $40 at a mall jewelry store but my band was pretty plain so it was an easy job. If you have a lot of filigree or pave-set stones it may cost more due to the extra labor involved.

Mine was $30 for half a size down, and any adjustments I needed after the initial resizing were free.

Going up will cost a lot more than down. One size shouldn’t be too bad. Sometimes they can stretch it if the band is thick enough but if you are trying to go up significantly they have to add gold.
I tried to resize by grandmother’s ring from a 4 to a 7. I was quoted around 140 I think, I don’t remember exactly. My jeweler did offer to lower the price if I had any “unwanted” gold jewelry he could use to add to it, but I decided just to wear it on my pinkie finger instead.

Resizing my ring was about $50 plus tax in Toronto. It was sized up two full ring sizes so they had to add more gold, but the band was thinned out a bit towards the back, which we didn’t ask for originally, but it suits the ring so we kept it like that.

Any resizing/problems with my ring are fixed as a courtesy of purchasing the ring, for life.
