Can you trade it in? I thought one of the benefits of a Tiffanys ring is you can always trade up and get the cost of your original ring applied.

I would resell it.  That’s way too much, you can get a brand new non name brand ring for that much!

It sounds like you love the ring so you should visit a local jeweler to see if they can resize it before trying to resell it.

I suppose it depends on what the original price of the band was.  Does what you paid plus the $1900 to resize exceed the cost of a new Tiffany band?

Wow, that is steep for re-sizing.  But going from a 7 to a 4.5 is a huge jump.  I had the same issue, I wear a size 4.  But I’m sure Fiance didn’t pay that much to have my e-ring sized, at least I hope not. 

Have you tried checking with any other jewelers to see if they can do the same thing for less?

Or, maybe try talking to the manager at Tiffany’s to get a discount?  I would think they would want to keep their customers happy, good grief.  Throw in some stuff about future upgrading, anniversary rings, future gifts, etc.  Does Tiffany’s really want to piss off a customer and lose potential future business for $1,900?  Maybe not.  It’s worth a shot. 

Reselling it, to me, would be the last option, because it sounds as though you really do love your ring!

Are you freakin kidding me?! That is obscene! My ring was a 7 and I am a 4, and it cost me $44 to have it re-sized. Now granted it isn’t an eternity band, and the diamonds didn’t have to be re-mounted, but come on!

I would go talk to another jeweler. I don’t know a lot about rings and mountings, but it seems to be that if the seting is there it would  be hard for them to mess it up too much.

I wouldn’t take it to another jeweler. The reason I would buy a Tiffany ring would be for their excellent warranty and craftsmanship that would all be lost if you took it to another jeweler. I would opt to sell the ring.
