So I got the ring (YAY) and I really love it, he chose the color because blue symbolizes fidelity and faithfulness (which I think is why you have “something blue” at the wedding… check in that column!)
But the darn thing is slightly too big and keeps pinching my finger. I don’t want to take it off but I want to be able to hail a taxi without flinging it into the street O_O
Do you know how much it costs to get resized?
—>and anyone in Montreal know where I can do this? I’m not a jewelry kind of girl.

Resizing in the states is usually pretty cheap depends on the number of sizes up or down you need to go. And any good jewerler can do it.

might want to call the store that he bought it at- they may do re-sizing for no/small fee. Also, if you run into problems later (like stones falling out or something) I find it is best to work with the original dealer if at all possible.

PP’s have answered the “where do I go” question, I just have this to add:
If you can’t bear giving it up to be sized just yet, get a sizing insert like this. Most major jewellers sell them.

It’s pretty cheap – I think mine cost $60 (USD). You should definitely get it resized! You don’t want to have to worry about it flying off all the time.
Congrats! Beautiful ring 🙂

@MissNoodles: Wow thanks that’s amazing… I might do that for now.
Unfortunately, my boyfriend bought it in Florida on vacation, and we’re now back in Montreal so we can’t really have them resize it. Hopefully I can find someone here who will do it cheap. In the meantime, the insert is a fantastic idea.

My ring was 2 sizes too big and I bought ring guards which took a minute to get used to but I didn’t even notice them after a while. They are really cheap and don’t damage the ring at all like some of the other types do.
When I did finally get mine resized it took 4 weeks until I got my ring back =( I hope they can do it faster for you!
heres some stock photos… its soft plastic, they come in shorter and longer sizes ticker and thinner tubes. Theres a large variety in each pack and it costs something like a dollar here in the US for a pack.

@HappilyEverAfter54: This is great… the only ones I could find you had to vice on, and I did not want to do that. I really don’t want to part with the ring yet, I’ll look into one of these.

@dreamwedding4us: It really depends on what type of metal it is and how many sizes it would need to come up/down. Getting it made smaller is usually cheaper because the jeweler wouldn’t need to add any metal to it. It’s pretty inexpensive and it’s DEFINITELY worth it. Many jewelers can do it pretty quickly (a day or two), and spending under $100 and a few days without your ring is DEFINITELY worth it to ensure that you don’t lose the thing!
