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.

and my gold, promising to have the money from the gold (approximately $15,000.00) sometime that week. She did indeed sell the gold but after sending me a very small check for the first piece she sold, I never received another dime. It cost me several thousand dollars in attorney fees to

her, I was awarded a Summary Judgment against her. I have never received my money, she wrote checks to me to pay for it and then stopped payment on them when I attempted to cash them. In my opinion, only a person with no integrity would do this. Only a thief takes something that belongs to someone else.. She wrote many emails and placed many phone calls, to myself and to the people who referred her to me, promising she would repay me and that she knew she owed the money, that she would make it up to me. Needless to say, I have never seen another dime, approximately $14,000 plus attorney's fees.

Things did not go well and the constant lack of communication on the jeweler's part was ridiculous by not being up front about how long the repair could take. Too many visits and phone calls to finally get my watch back to me. Now I have to find another watch repair person who will repair my watch properly. My watch is valued at approximately $1200.00, so it wasn't a cheap watch.

I have been a customer of
Manning Designer Jewelry Provider Name Locked
for many years now, based on a recommendation from a co-worker. Alain and his entire team are wonderful people and the epitome of professionalism. I have used DJO for repairs, for stone resetting, and purchases. Most recently my fiancé and I bought my engagement ring and our wedding bands there. We would not have trusted anyone else with such an important purchase. The entire team takes a personal interest in each customer. Such sincerity is a rarity these days.

He did an excellent job on my rings .. it's impossible to see where they were enlarged. I took the rings to him 9/2 and they were ready to be picked up 9/3. Very impressed with his work. I would recommend him and I will certainly remember to get any other jewelry repairs done by him.
