21 Places to Get a Ring Sized or Resized (Wait Times Included)

Short Answer: There are several jewelry stores, department stores, and other retailers that will size and resize rings, including Bloomingdale’s, Kay Jewelers, Macy’s, Walmart, and Zales. Some will even resize rings from other companies, but most will need to move the ring offsite for about two weeks to perform the resizing. See below for the list of places in the U.S. that will size and resize rings, as well as their policies and service times.

What to Know About Ring Sizing & Resizing

There are a few things to keep in mind when it comes to ring sizing. First, many companies won’t size or resize a ring purchased elsewhere; they’ll only service rings purchased from their own stores. However, there are a few exceptions to this.

Additionally, some companies do not have organization-wide ring sizing services. Fine jewelry may only be available in select locations, so it is likely that only these locations will offer ring sizing; you can call ahead to find out what services are offered at the locations near you. Additionally, it’s important to know whether the company has an onsite or offsite jeweler. If there is a jeweler on site, in most instances, you will have a much shorter wait time.

Finally, note that it’s more expensive to increase the size of your ring than to decrease it, and not all rings can be altered. Sometimes, even if the ring can be resized, the jeweler will only size up or down by one. This limit might be a store policy, or it might be because of the type of ring or metal. Some companies may offer one free resizing for rings purchased at their own stores. For more information, see our article about how much it costs to resize a ring.

Local Jewelers

National chain stores aren’t your only option for ring resizing; you can also go to your local, independent jewelry store. Similar to chain stores, independent shops will provide ring sizing and resizing, and if they have an onsite jeweler, you won’t have to wait long to have your ring altered. To find out the policy of a particular store, check to see if it’s on the store’s website; if not, you should be able to get the information by calling or visiting the store.

In Summary

There are quite a few stores you can go to for ring sizing and resizing, such as Fred Meyer Jewelers, Jared the Galleria of Jewelry, Nordstrom, Sears, and even local jewelers. In general, department stores do not have onsite jewelers, and most will resize a ring only if you purchased it from them. On the other hand, some jewelry stores will alter rings from any company and some, such as Jared, resize rings onsite. Also, jewelry stores will generally have a quicker turnaround time than department stores.
