Yes and sizing up one size shouldn’t be to bad but depending on where you go it could cost from 35-50 possible that’s only if the ring is full platinum and not a base metal with platinum plating

@Diamond88:  OP, you’d have to ask a jeweler, but I would think it might be around 100, because of the cost of platinum. It is definitely possible to size it.

Another thing to consider is if there are diamonds on the band (whether a full eternity or partial). To get it sized up and keep the same look, they may have to add additional diamonds in the band which will increase the cost. That said, yes, they can resize platinum.

Platinum, like gold, can be resized.  The biggest problem with resizing a ring is will it damage the setting of any stones.  Some of those rings can only be resized a half a size or so.

Take a picture of it to a jeweler and ask them if it could be resized to the size that you need.  They can probably tell you–then you won’t have to go through any hassle of returning it if it can’t be resized.

i think it would be quite expensive. I just got a quote on resizing a platinum ring DOWN a 1/2 size and they quoted $70. Usually going up a size is even more because they have to add metal.

Gold costs more than platinum now so it all depends on the jeweler you use the place I go charges 25 to size down and 35(this is gold pricing and 2 months ago so yes prices change) to size up and anything more than  2 ring size difference it increases the cost because you need to add more and more metal. And more drastic the size change the more time it takes to make sure everything is still tight and it is easier to size down than up .. I had my half eternity band sized down from a 7 to a 3.5 and my stones are set better than they originally were  because I specified to retip and reshape every prong

Oh a plain band yea that’s no problem you don’t even have to worry about the setting for only one size difference

I would think going up a size would be over $100 and closer to $200… I heard that platinum is harder to work to get perfect especially to match it so the time the jeweler would take to work on it would be longer thus more $.
