    Unhappy

    My boyfriend ordered me a beautiful ring for Christmas, I recieved it yesterday and it's perfect except for one thing, it's half a size too big (not his fault, I said I needed a certain size and they didn't come in half sizes). I don't want to have it cut and resized cause I'm worried it would mess up the ring, but yesterday his mom mentioned that I should get a ring guard. I've never seen one or heard of one, but I think it's a piece of something you put on the inside of the ring so it fits better. Anyone know anything about these, prices and where I could get one?

    Thanks

    You can order those things out of like Carol Wright or Miles Kimball. I think you can get like a 5 or 10 pack. They are probably mystery metal.

    If you want real gold then 50-75 is a good price IMO.

    I don't know what a ring guard is, but I do know that they can weld two little balls or ball bearings on the inside of the bottom of the ring that are sized to fit snuggly up against your finger, thus making the ring fit. My sister had to do that to a ring she got.

    My wife also resized one of her rings recently to a smaller size and i couldn't even tell where they made the cut. It was pretty amazing.

    Sounds like a nice gift.

    You really shouldn't worry about cutting it. The rings that can't be resized due to the design are the minority. My mom gets stuff cut all the time and she's never had a problem.

    Thanks for the info guys, I really appreciate it. I wonder if it would be expensive to get it cut. I don't want to do it cause I waited for this ring for a long time and finally I get it yesterday and I have to say goodbye to it again,lol. I don't know how long it would take to get back if they cut it. If it doesn't leave a mark on the ring where they cut it then I might do that. Thanks again, I'll look into it.

    What's the ring made of? A gold ring can be re-sized to be smaller or larger without leaving any mark because it's so easily worked. Hopefully, there'll be a nearby jeweler that does it in-house rather than sending it out. Either way, it's something they can do quickly and for not a lot of money.

    It's sterling silver coated with white gold. I was hoping I could just find a nearby jeweler, I really don't want to send it out

    Scotch tape works just as good as a ring gaurd.
