Imagine my engagement ring has become small in only two months, I think its my finger that is growing fat. What am I supposed to do? I took it to a jeweller and he said its slim it cant be enlarged.

I had the same problem with my first wedding band. The jeweler said he could do it, but then he just stole gold from inside the ring, but it still didn't fit and then he wanted to keep the gold as his fee for working on it. I have also had friends take rings in to be resized and they said the jeweler took out real diamonds and replaced them with fakes. If it is an expensive ring, then I guess I would want a certificate of authenticity before taking it in for any work. I would not trust anyone.

Thanks for taking your time to respond to this discussion. That jeweller was abit cruel and he is going to loose clients for his behaviour. Its just like the one whom i took my ring to, he said it cannot be enlarged, it can only be cut into pieces........wtf.......I left the shop without a word and never went back.

You control your diet and be slim then it will again fit to your finger. If not possible then go to goldsmith and remake the ring with some bigger hole..lol

I agree that you should check out other jewelers to see if they will enlarge it. But if they all say it can't be done the only other thing that I can think of is to maybe loose some weight. I'm not saying that you need to, I'm just saying that I knew a guy who got married and he lost a few pounds, and on his honeymoon he lost his ring at the beach because after losing some weight the ring got loose.

I agree with the above poster. I had a similar problem with my engagement ring and had to take it to a jeweler to get it resized. Mine was pretty thin, but it wasn't any problem. I would try talking to another jeweler and see what the next person says. :)

That's not possible, since my spouse is from jeweler family. I usually had no problem even it's slim when I want to make it larger or smaller. Had you take to other jeweler?

Hallo, Imagine I took it to a jeweller and that guy was soo rude, he gave me some technical terms that my gold was "ENGLISH GOLD" ok it was bought from the UK. so it is not mendable. Gosh I was soo hurt. it a cute ring with a rubi inside.

That's very rude to customer. Even though I cannot handle my customer's stuff, I will try to be polite explain to them or give them a solution. Not spitting back on them. No need to go back to that jeweler anymore. Honey, my spouse said, there are 2 choices. First, this should be discussed with your spouse. Make a new ring which is the same shape, but different in size, and keep the original in safe place. This is only if He agreed and it's expendable. If not then the 2nd option. Second, ask your relatives maybe there are jeweler which is a relative too, or if they know someone who really can be trusted to enlarge the jewel, of course the experience one is better. Or ask the jeweler to make new bracket but used the current stone. My spouse when read your replying thread said, she never been that so rude to her any customers ever, even though the customer is the very 'naughty' one (hard to be handled). Never go for the jeweler anymore.
