Can Engagement Rings Be Made Bigger?

When it comes to the world of fine jewelry, an engagement ring holds a special place in our hearts. It symbolizes love, commitment, and the promise of a beautiful future together. But what if that cherished symbol doesn't quite fit perfectly on your finger? Don't fret; Kravit Jewelers is here to guide you through the process of making your engagement ring bigger without compromising its integrity. With over three generations of experience and a commitment to customer satisfaction, we're your trusted partner in all things jewelry.

Understanding Ring Sizing

Getting the right ring size is crucial not only for comfort but also to ensure the ring's longevity. Rings that are too tight can lead to discomfort, while loose rings risk falling off. There are common reasons for needing a larger ring, such as weight fluctuation or inheriting a ring that isn't the perfect size. 

Factors like climate and lifestyle can also affect how a ring fits. At Kravit Jewelers, we understand the importance of a perfectly fitting engagement ring.

Traditional Methods for Increasing Ring Size

  • Adding Extra Metal: One of the traditional methods involves adding extra metal to the ring's shank. This process can make the ring bigger without changing its overall appearance. However, it may not be suitable for all ring designs.
  • Stretching the Band: For simple bands, stretching is an option. While it can increase the ring's size, it's essential to consider the material and design, as this method has limitations.
  • Ring Sizing Beads: These small metal balls can be added to the inside of the ring to make it snugger on the finger. It's a reversible method, making it a popular choice.

Each of these methods has its pros and cons, and it's crucial to consult with a professional jeweler at Kravit before deciding which one is right for your engagement ring.

Alternative Solutions

If traditional resizing methods don't quite align with your needs, there are alternative solutions to consider:

  • Ring Enhancers and Guards: These are elegant, decorative additions that not only resize the ring but also enhance its appearance.
  • Ring Sizing Inserts: These flexible inserts are placed inside the ring, making it smaller or larger as needed. They are a great option for temporary resizing.
  • Adjustable Rings: Some rings are designed to be adjustable, accommodating various finger sizes without the need for resizing.
  • Swapping Out the Setting: If you're considering a significant change, you can discuss the option of swapping out the setting or even upgrading to a larger stone.

DIY vs. Professional Resizing

While some online guides may suggest DIY resizing, it's important to understand the risks involved. At Kravit Jewelers, we strongly recommend professional resizing to ensure the safety and longevity of your engagement ring. Our expert jewelers have the knowledge and tools needed to provide precise and secure resizing.
