English Yellow Gold .50 Carat Diamond Vintage Solitaire Ring
When you purchase a ring at Lang Antiques the first sizing is complementary.Please note the following:
- Most rings can be sized up or down one size unless noted and sometimes can be sized more.
- Keep in mind that most rings were made to the scale of the size. Large rings are usually too broad across for a small finger and visa versa.
- Feel free to contact our sizing department to discuss any ring you are considering. Please include your phone number so we can gather information to best size you.
- If you provide us with an incorrect size there will be an additional charge for the second sizing.
- The process is similar to fitting a tailored suit or an intricate wedding dress
- The metal (platinum or gold and the karat of gold)
- The method of manufacture
- The size it needs to be and whether we are sizing up or down
- Shape of fingers - tapered or larger knuckles
- Fingers swell and change size over the course of the day, after eating salty food or on a hot day
- We have a team of highly skilled jewelers who specialize in restoration of antique and period jewelry who are experts at sizing.
- How long does it take? Sizing a ring takes 10 working days plus or minus.
- When a ring is made larger we typically cut the base of the shank and add metal. We quality control all our sizings with a microscope and you should not be able to see where it was done.
- When a ring is made smaller a piece of metal is cut from the base of the shank where it is then soldered or fused solid again.
- We use traditional as well as modern techniques in the process including Lasers for platinum welding.
- We take great pride in the work our jewelers do and quality control all work with a microscope. If for any reason you have a problem resulting from the work we have done we will correct it.
- We do not guarantee work performed by other jewelers.
