When a ring is resized down, the jeweler will cut out the extra material from the bottom and solder the ends back together.
To resize the ring and make it bigger, there are two standard methods. The first one is where a little extra piece of material is added at the bottom. This method can resize a ring up to 2 sizes larger. You’ll have to pay for the extra material and craftsmanship. The second is to stretch the band. However, it makes the ring thinner and weakens it. So, this can only be done depending on the band. Usually it can only go to around half a size larger.
