  • It is simple, the jeweller should re-size the ring for you when you buy it.
    A minute at the till, a lifetime on the bill.

    Nothing tastes as good as being slim feels.

    one life, live it!
  • half a size really isn't very much, and remember that as it's winter, fingers are a tiny bit smaller! so an L might be perfect to fit all year round, including hotter months.

    However, most jewellers will resize a ring for free if you bought it from them in the last 28 days, and if not there is a charge between £15 and £30, depending.

    HTH :)
  • PS - my engagement ring was a size J which was perfect for me, until I had a wedding ring underneath which meant it needed to be a little bigger. So if I were you I would stick with the L.

    It`s from H Samuel on line , so it says about the refunds etc etc but doesnt mention about what happens if its too small or big etc !

    But thanks for the advice all:beer:

    If it's half a size, then like other people have said it may not make that much difference. You can buy (probably from jewellers?) little clear plastic tubes to put on a ring that make it smaller - maybe try one of these first to see whether it really does need to be resized?

    Hiya x

    It depends on the metal - My friend made my platinum engagement ring - I am sure he said its difficult to resize platinum and titanuim - but I may be wrong.

    I would ring HSamual and check with them.

  • titanium will be much harder and it would probably have to be sent away to a workshop which works in titanium, if it is gold 1/2 size is a two minute job. best to ask the jeweller you are planning to buy off so you know where you stand.
