I had my wedding band from Jared sized from a 6.75 to a 4 and stupid me didn’t ask for the gold piece back! And those bums kept it. I don’t buy that they “put it back into the ring”. Does it look thicker?

I’m pretty sure that places keep the extra gold. Grr…

Do size 7 rings cost more than size 6 rings?  What would you do with it anyways?

@MedicBride2Be:  I took a ring to Shane to get sized (and it wasn not purchased from Shane, but I was taking another ring from Shane there, so I took them both at the same time)- and had a HUGE piece of 18K gold taken out of my ring- it was a thick band.  And no, I didn’t get the piece back.

 

I was pissed when I realized how much they had to take out, and to be honest, I’d say my ring looks “skinner” than it did before.  I love it when a place charges you $72 to have a ring sized, but basically profit off of you.  It took them literally 5 minutes to size and polish the ring.  The craftsmenship was excellent- I don’t lie.  But they didn’t need much time, and took my gold!
