    I need them too! Shane co quoted me $120 which I think it waaay too high so I’m not doing it :/ I think the cheapest it will run is like $80 which is still too much to me for 2 tiny little balls of gold.

    The price of precious metals has gone up a lot. You have to take into consideration also that you aren’t just paying for the cost of the platinum, but also for the jeweller’s labor. And, they have to make some sort of profit otherwise they could not stay in business. I’d say $150 for sizing beads makes sense.

    I have worked in jewellery and a regular sizing for platinum can run like $90 just for that. So it makes sense for the sizing beads to be more. It’s sucks but it’s probably a fair quote.

    This won’t be helpful, but I had mine added for free from the Jeweler my FI bought the ring, it’s not a chain place though so maybe that’s why they didn’t charge…Didn’t realize that it could have potential cost money, mine was sized twice for free as well…
