I just got engaged a few backs and just received my e-ring this past weekend. But it doesn’t fit. It’s a size 6 and my ring size is a 3.5. I was at the mall yesterday and went into Kay to see the pricing, when I showed them the ring they said there wasn’t a stamp on it and that they couldn’t size it. The ring is real gold I know that but now I’m freaking out because I don’t know where I can get it sized where they won’t make a big deal over a missing stamp? has anyone had this problem before? Would a small jewelry store be able to do it? I really want to wear it but it’s just way too big for me to wear on my ring finger.

@anamiii: Did your Fiance buy it from Kay? Did he know your ring size?
That’s a BIG change for the ring, it might affect the settings.
Not sure what you meant about a stamp…

@mchitt329: no it’s not bought from Kay and he took the wrong ring to get it sized! lol my middle finger is a 6 and I guess he took that ring and figured he’d surprise me. I’m going to try to post a picture but all it really needs is to be cut and welded together the setting isn’t going to change much.
And stamp is the word the lady at Kay used, I’m guessing it’s the number that states what kind of metal it is.

I would have your Fiance take it back to where he bought it and find out why there is no stamp. Jewelers are required to stamp all precious metals.

Yes, it should be stamped. That is the law, so the place where it was purchased should, without question, stamp it for metal content. It should say 18k or 750 etc. As well, they should size it. There is kind of a rule of 2 with sizing though… 2 up or 2 down, so if you have side stones, you may only be able to size to a 4.

Sizing the ring down that much will most likely affect the setting. That’s a huge jump to make. I had my ring resized from a 5.5 to a 4.5 and one of my side stones is crooked now.
As far as “knowing” that the ring is real gold, without a stamp, a jeweler has no way of knowing the metal/alloy.

I had my ring sized down to a 5 from a 7 and it still rolled like crazy because it’s top heavy. I didn’t want to size it down any more because of all the pave diamonds on the band so I had sizing beads put in the band- which puts the ring size at 4.5. They work like a charm. And if the ring does get too tight in the summer (it’s great right now, but swollen fingers could be an issue later) I can have them filed down to about half their size. Some people are bothered by the beads and say they irritate their finger, but they don’t bother me at all.

Take it back to where you bought it is my suggestion. You may be hard pressed to find someone that will size it down that far.

Definitely take/send it back to where he purchased it. No one else will likely touch it. Sorry.
