    Personally, I always opt for a family jeweler.

    After my Fiance propsed I needed my ring sized and the jeweler he bought my ring from was on vacation for a couple weeks so he closes his shop. So I decided to take my ring into Kays. WORST CHOICE I’VE EVER MADE!

    When I got my ring back, the band on the bottom was SO THIN that I thought it would break. You could REALLY tell that they resized it and did not do a very good job! Also, the rhodium looked to be off as well which is odd because it was perfectly fine when I took it in since I only had it 2 weeks!

    I went in and complained and we sent it back in again and the same exact thing came back- they did NOTHING to fix it!

    So by that time, my jeweler was back in town and we took it to him.

    And I know Jared’s charges around $40 for the rhodium plating, and most local jewelers in my area only charge $20 and you get better workmanship.

    I don’t know how much they charge for resizing, but I would take it to your family jeweler. he’ll make sure it’s perfect for you and not hurry through it!

    I’ve never had a ring resized there but did shop there twice and they couldn’t answer basic questions about metals or gemstones (I know a fair amount about jewelry and they had basic stuff mixed up.) So, I don’t trust them.

    When we bought my e ring from Jared, they had to size it to my finger. No hassle nothing worked out fine and it fits like a charm. We also bought our wedding bands there once again no hassle nothing.

    I would go with a company that does it in-house.  Places like Kay send them off to apparently some place where no one gives two sh*ts about your ring.  I had a ring sized there once and they broke all THREE of the stones in it because they didn’t take them out to size it like you’re supposed to.  There is probably somewhere in your town that sizes rings in house.  That way, if it’s messed up you don’t have to go through the corporate bureaucracy who doesn’t care.  Also, that person is more likely to do a better job because they’re reputation is on the line.

    I had my ring resized at Jared’s, and it came out perfectly in about two hours. Granted, chains can be tricky because the staff and management vary from store to store, but based on my experience, I highly recommend Jared’s.

    If you can go to a private jeweler WITHOUT affecting your Jared warranty, I would do that. I have had a really bad experience with Jared and am only sharing to prevent you from having the same. I had a size 6 ring brought down to a 4.25 and when the size was changed it pulled the side diamonds apart creating gaps inbetween my channel set stones. I have since chose a setting and they custom ordered it in my size but I would check 2 things before making a decision. 1. If you have it sized at a private jeweler , will it cancel your life time warrenty at Jared and 2. Throughly check all of your stones when you receive it back.

    I hope this was helpful!!
