Cubic zirconia ring sizing March 10 2017

If you’re reading this, you probably already know that almost all of our cubic zirconia rings come “standard” made in your choice of U.S. ring sizes from size 3 to size 13 including all half and quarter sizes.

However, you may be coming to us as an existing customer wanting to get a ring re-sized or someone who has never purchased from wondering if you can get ring sizing services for your cubic zirconia ring maybe purchased somewhere else or received as a gift.

The answers to each question are yes, though we do prefer only to do ring sizing work for our own past customers since we offer the service without any profit markup as a courtesy.

From sizing a new ring to sizing an existing ring, to re-tipping worn prongs, white rhodium-plating, setting stones and so much more, we are fully equipped to get your CZ ring repair completed efficiently, securely and with as few steps as possible coordinating through insured mail, and communicating via phone and email.

Cubic Zirconia ring sizing is statistically the most common “repair” we are ever asked to make, and we put that word repair in quotes because really it’s just a modification of a ring and not truly fixing something wrong.

The reality is that most jewelry stores sell rings in sizes 6 to 8 and that is all you ever see in display cases. It’s an “average” that we feel is purely arbitrary, and while those sizes can meet the needs of a lot of the customers in the market, this being the standard sizes can make some people with larger or smaller finger sizes feel like no one cares about their comfort. Nothing could be further from the truth with!

All cubic zirconia rings we sell come with one free finger ring sizing (typically done to our customer’s specifications at purchase, completed after the ring is manufactured and before we ship the finished product).

And unlike most jewelers that charge a large fee for a ring sizing service, we just charge our actual hard costs, and for most ring sizes that is less than $20 USD. The range from U.S. Ring Size 3 to Ring Size 13 covers over 95% of the market in our experience, and so we conveniently include ring sizing for $20 USD or less of all cubic zirconia rings to those sizes conveniently as part of your ring purchase.

Extremely large finger ring sizing. What happens if a customer wants to make the ring larger than size 13? (costs $__-__ extra, depending on size and metal type)

Here’s WHY: _______ This is much more expensive because of the extra precious metal because we base our costs on a size 7)

We use only quality materials in ring sizing jewelry work, which produces the most effective results. Just like with the old saying, however –“measure twice, cut once” – it is imperative that two things happen for our ring sizing process to work.

First, we need you to make sure of your finger ring size when you provide it to us.

Second, we do our best to make sure that any time you give us a finger ring size we compare our customer notes to determine if another ring size has ever been given by you, compare the two, and authenticate with you which is in fact correct to your needs and comfort.

For those that are interested in the “technical” side of ring sizing, and how jewelers go about it, we’ll include some notes here to give you an idea of how our process works.

There are traditionally two techniques used to REDUCE a ring’s finger size:
A) a technique called ‘swaging’ which involves stretching metal, and uses a set of dies and a press to force the ring into the size of the die chosen. Swaging ring sizing is used most frequently only with plain half-round wedding bands that are not tapered and have never before been sized since initial casting. It’s the least frequent type of sizing our company will ever do since we sell many more cubic zirconia rings that have accent stones than plain metal wedding bands.

B) a technique that includes removing a piece of the accented ring’s shank at the plainest possible base section (metal without accents) by cutting, adding a joint piece of precious metal as closely matching the original ring’s metal content as possible, and rejoining both sides of the cut across the joint’s “bridge”. When a ring is cut and rejoined during sizing purposes, there are two common joints used: a butt joint and a dovetail joint. A butt joint is formed when the shank is cut flat on the ends and brought together to form a tight seam. To make a dovetail joint, the craftsman would instead cut a V-shaped piece out of one side of the ring’s shank, where the opposite side of the cut has a blunt point that complements the V-shape opposite. Because the dovetail joint provides a more secure rejoining in most cases, if it is possible with the ring’s configuration then that will always be the choice we at make when reducing a cubic zirconia ring’s finger ring size.

Note: If you have an eternity band where accent stones go all the way around a ring’s band, now you know why it’s absolutely imperative that we get the finger ring size right the FIRST TIME (upon initial manufacturing) because there simply is no way to do either of these techniques afterwards. As you can imagine, eternity bands are an exception to our traditional costs for cubic zirconia ring sizing, and cost much more because the time needed for our master jewelry craftsmen to make the change is many times as much.

Now, for techniques used to INCREASE a ring’s finger size:
