Resizing down is much easier task to do and less expensive👌.
When a ring is resized down, the jeweler cuts out the extra material from the bottom.
And joins the ends back together.

A little extra piece of material added at the bottom.
This process can resize a ring up and about to 2 sizes bigger.

The band is stretch.
But stretching it makes the ring thinner and weakens it.
So this can only do depending on the band.
Usually it can only go half a size larger.
First and notable, if the ring has ever resized previously, and then it cannot resize again.
Choosing to resize it a second time will compromise the structural integrity of the ring.
It is also not advisable to resize these rings more than two sizes.
This can result in the metal being weak and will lead to the losing shape of the ring.
It is but possible to resize one or two size.

Dear Marianne, it could be possible if the band of your ring is thick enough and has the capacity to get hammered a little bit. I’d recommend taking it to your local jeweler and showing the ring to the expert. It might not take much time or money to make it bigger. Maybe around 10 or 20 minutes and the cost would be around 20 or 30 bucks if not free. However keep in mind that after hammering and stretching it, the band will get thinner.
