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.
