Take time to educate yourself before buying fine jewelry, and consider hiring experienced, high-rated professionals when having items appraised, repaired or cleaned.

Depends on the design and how much it is being resized, and if reducing or increasing. For a simple one-size change larger, with a simple circular ring, can be as cheap as $20-30 to heat and stretch it.
 
 
If needs to be enlarged more or reduced, then it has to be cut and changed to the size wanted, and fused back together, with new gold or silver if enlarging. Obviously, reducing is cheaper than enlarging as no signficant new metal is needed, and silver is cheaper than gold or platinum because of the six-seven fold difference in the cost of the metals.
 
 
Resizing involving cutting probably in the $50-100 range for silver or for reducing a gold ring, enlarging a gold ring with added metal could run $100-250 depending on how large the ring is - a real hefty men's ring will obviously take more metal, so more cost, than a thin wedding band.
 
 
You want to consider the value of the ring - a real valuable or antique ring you want to take to a true artisan jeweler who makes and modifies rings in-house - a simple economy ring or simple band you would get a cheaper price probably at a chain store like Zales.
 
 
When you drop it off be sure to get a written receipt for it while they work on it (usually unless a simple one-size stretch job, cannot do while you wait), and I would also take a picture or two of it on your cell phone, including a zoom shot of any interior engraving, so if there is any question about whether you got back what you dropped off, you have some proof. Of course, the integrity of the shop is critical.

I found

through Angie's List. My wife's wedding band was missing a small stone and needed some modest restoration.

took the time to explain my options, and expected costs in a very professional, friendly, and respectful way. Everything was very clear by the time I left the ring with him. It was ready within a few days, and the work was beautifully done; my wife was very pleased with the results.

also resized and did some minor restoration on my wedding band. It took a couple of days and also came out beautifully. My sense in working with

is that he is honest, fair, and takes pride in meeting/exceeding his customer's expectations. Would recommend him without hesitation.

provided us incredible customer service by being very responsive to our questions about different types of engagement rings/stones. They walked us through all our options and defined the different terms such as cut, color, etc. They made sure that we had every detail we needed to make the best decision, and they were very willing to work with us to find the perfect ring. My fiance and I couldn't have had a better experience. The attention to detail, impeccable customer service, and excellent quality ensures we will go back to

in the future. And the ring... is BEAUTIFUL... and gets lots of admirers.

seemed to do a fine job on the Longines movement, but he did not notify me when having difficulty when replating the watch case. Without my knowledge or consent, he burnished the bezel and case giving the 14K white gold case a stainless steel look. He did, however, reduce the price of the work. I had to send the case out to another source to be repaired at a great expense.

As for my mother's
Albany Designer Jewelry Provider Name Locked
watch, I was told that the
Albany Designer Jewelry Provider Name Locked
or index-style hands that were on the watch were not of that period (yet manufacturers such as Bulova had used them since the mid thirties). I was also told that the dial had been previously redone (though it had original tampo markings for the
Albany Designer Jewelry Provider Name Locked
name text). This makes me question his knowledge.

I have yet to receive the
Albany Designer Jewelry Provider Name Locked
two years after it was given to him to work on. I have not received calls back when I have left messages, and no one is allowed into his facility unless you have an appointment or are 'buzzed' in.

I am frustrated and feel so ripped off!!

I took a watch in for repair the first week of November, 2014. I finally got it back the first week of December. It stopped running after a day, so I took it back. They still have it, despite promises to complete the repair. They operate a high-end jewelry store where they sell Rolex watches. I think every watch that comes in for repair is in line ahead of mine.

I inherited a beautiful 18k white gold, art deco diamond ring made in the 1930s from my late grandmother. It needed to be upsized as it was WAY too small for my ring finger. Also, I wanted to have an idea of what it is worth, so, I took it, along with another ring of mine with a loose stone to Summit Jewelry Co. to see what they could do.
The associate who assited me was polite plus seemed experienced and knowledgeable. She provided me with the cost to size up my grandma's ring and explained that it was based on going up 3+ sizes. Also, she took the time to explain they could provide me with a verbal appraisal at no cost for each ring, but if I was looking for a written appraisal, such as for insurance purposes, there would indeed be a charge for that service.
I was told it would take about a week, which is much faster than several other jewelers I was checking out on-line. Summit called me the following Friday to inform me both rings were ready to pick-up at my convenience. They made it extremely easy on me! All I had to do was drop the rings off and take my claim ticket. When I went to pick-up and pay, I simply showed my ticket and out they came.
They were unable to come to a conclusion as to the value of the second ring upon doing routine initial testing. My guess is the stone is not as valuable as I had hoped, however, they cleaned it and figured out a way to tighten the stone within the setting in order to reduce the
Albany Designer Jewelry Provider Name Locked
of my losing it.

did an outstanding job. We had a ring from my fiancée's grandmother that we wanted to use the stones from.
Albany Designer Jewelry Provider Name Locked
worked with us to find a contemporary setting that we both liked and then he used all the stones in the ring. It came out beautiful. My fiancée fell in love with the ring. Now we have a ring that is unique and incorporates her grandmother's ring too. It is awesome.

AVOID THIS COMPANY FOR JEWELRY REPAIRS!!! Save yourself some heart
Albany Designer Jewelry Provider Name Locked
and go to a professional jeweler.
About 7 years ago my husband and I had our original wedding rings reproduced because after 34 years of marriage they were well worn. We kept the original diamonds since even though they weren't large diamonds, they were very high quality and meant a lot to us since they were the only part of our original rings left. I noticed that a prong was snagging clothes so we took it to a local
Albany Designer Jewelry Provider Name Locked
thinking "it's a minor job". They called a couple of days later saying all of the prongs needed to be built up. Okay,
Albany Designer Jewelry Provider Name Locked
enough; do the work. They told me they would call me when it was finished. A week and a half later still no call so we went down there to check on it. The woman at the counter checked to see if it was in. It was there and no call. My eyesight isn't the greatest so when I got home I looked at it under a bright light with my glasses and noticed one of the diamond chips was missing on my wedding band and there was a hole there where it used to be. We immediately went back to the store and showed it to them. No problem, they'll replace it. No problem!??? The diamonds were the only surviving pieces of my original rings. They knew this as I had already explained this. We also had shown them the papers to our rings showing them that these were top quality diamonds and they assured us that is what would go back into the rings. They said they would call us when the rings were done. No phone call again so we went down to pick them up. A few days later I noticed that same hole in my ring again. The diamond was gone! Went immediately back to FM again and they said they would replace it and call me when it was in. They put another diamond in. A week and half later still no call so again we went down to pick it up, We weren't leaving this time until we looked closely at it. The very nice sales lady lent us her jeweler's loop. Their so called "high quality diamond" had a large scratch across the top of it!!! The jeweler was standing there and said if you don't like it I can replace it, it's only a $10 stone. That was it! I had had enough of this place. I walked out holding back the tears. My rings at one time consisted of a quarter carat near perfect stone and 2 near perfect chips so even though my rings aren't ultra valuable, they are worth millions to me in sentimental value of 34 years of a wonderful marriage.

found a watch band after a month of searching slowly at my instruction not to rush. The watch band was snakeskin, and the watch owner is afraid of snakes so that couldn't work. He offered for me to pick up the watch for no charge despite his now being saddled with a $200 proprietary sized watch band he couldn't sell with nothing but well wishes and professional hopes that I might have better luck looking on my own despite him contacting the watchmaker direct. It is a common strap, in a very uncommon color and sizing.
