Full Answer

Jewelers who offer ring resizing on jewelry that was not purchased from their store charge anywhere from $50 to $500. The cost is determined by the metal used, the width of the band and how much resizing is needed. The cost of making a ring smaller is at the lower end of the price range, and this price typically does not vary based on the amount of resizing needed.

    What does the marking "14k HGE" mean on a ring?

    A:

    Markings on a ring that indicate "14k HGE" mean the ring contains 14-karat gold in "heavy gold electroplate," which indicates that the gold is not pure or solid gold but is a covering for some other metal. Normally, this layer of gold has a thickness between 7 and 100 millionths of an inch. Gold that is not marked with HGE can be tested electronically to discover its purity.
