That sounds crazy!!  They may need to add some to make it bigger, but we’re talkign about tiiiiiiiny piece since 2 size is only like a mm – 1.5 mm in metal.  I’d believe like a $50-$100 charge, but $750 is highway robbery, esp if your entire sz 4.5 ring is 1k.

@Mrs.Lotus: my husbands ring is platinum. & yes, they are totally overcharging. 

Get a second opinion. Where did you go? I remember tiffany’s saying it was $75 to go up a size for his. we just ended up ordering his size rather than buying the one at the store and getting it resized. 

but, def. get a 2nd opinion.

btw, that was for a 6mm (very thick ring) so yea, should def. be less.

That sounds like a lot… We only paid 800 for my FI’s 5mm wedding band in platinum, size 9. I’m sure he can’t be adding that much platinum…

I sized up my platinum Tiffany e-ring and it was $150 I think. They’re overcharging you big time.

@blingbling:

 

Lol what Blingbling said….

I had my ring sized down twice for free (I guess paid in the price of the custom ring) It still wasn’t right so they sized it up one and added platinum beads to stop it swiveling. 

They charged cost price to them which was £65

I just called two places and they said $225 and $260.  I got depressed and started drinking ๐Ÿ™‚  OK maybe not but it was like wow!

 I’ll keep looking
