Where to get gold ring expanded?

Postby slmkhoo » Wed Apr 09, 2014 4:21 pm

Not sure where to post this. Mods, please move if it shouldn't be here!

Does anyone know where I can get a gold ring expanded? Somewhere reliable and not too expensive? Thanks!

Thought any goldsmith shop can do? I used to part time in a small shop when I was a student. They have tools that can help enlarge if the size diff is not too big - and on the spot too.

If the diff is too big, there is danger that the ring may snap (again depend on how slim/thick it is).

Too long ago! I've had this ring for more than 20 yrs. I find my knuckle is getting a bit big (with age) and it can be a squeeze to get it on and off on some days.

Any idea what the charges might be?

Thank! Any idea what the charges might be? And where can I find a goldsmith these days? I haven't bought jewellery for more than 20 yrs!

The last time I did it where I bought the rings from. So no charge. That was many yrs back, not sure abt now.

Not sure whether it's Indian custom but I've also seen other races wearing their rings such. Sometimes they look nice too!

OT : My wedding ring long time can't wear liao. Expanded once, now cannot wear again. It's ok cos my chubby fingers can never make the ring look gd anyway. :yikes:
