    @NEAM2014:  I don’t know, definitely not $100. BUT you should definitely get it replated after, otherwise it won’t look nice? Why don’t you want to get it replated? The bottom will be yellow if you don’t.

    I have a half eternity platinum wedding band. I was quoted $50 to size it down.

    Most jewellery stores will do it for free if you purchase the ring there.  With that said, I purchased my wedding band from Costco and took it to both an independant jeweller and a chain jewellery store to see what both quoted to have it sized up.  The independant jeweller said he would do it for me on site but because they would have to add more gold and then re-dip it/plate it it was going to be around $120 CAD.  Keep in mind that my ring is fairly thick as well.  Then I took it to a chain store and they said they could do it but would have to send it out to be done, but would also add gold and re-dip the ring.  They suggested it would take approximately 2 weeks and would cost $90 CAD (taxes in, no clue about the taxes from the independant jeweller).  Given that we aren’t getting married until March and it was the end of January that I took it in, I was in no rush so I decided to save some money and go with the chain jewellery store. 

     

    My ring took a little over a week to come in and it looks and fits great!  So, I guess it all depends on how much you’re willing to pay and how quickly you need it.  My advice is to look around though, and don’t be afraid to tell one store what another charged you in hopes that maybe they’ll lower their prices a bit.  Good luck.
