Resizing New Rings

  • If the ring you would like is not your size, it may be possible to resize it. Every ring is different, so please call with questions.
  • If you don't know your ring size, your local jeweler should be able to help you.
  • The Opal Man can resize most rings in 1/4 sizes (for example: 7, 7.25, 7.5, 7.75, 8, etc.)
  • Cost of Resizing: Band width, band complexity, and the degree of resizing are things that will influence service fees.  With some exceptions, many gold rings, when purchased new from The Opal Man, can be resized at no additional fee.
