Can be sized.
Small amount of surface wear to a small area on the surface of the Sapphire, as to be expected on a ring that's 150 years old. Fantastic condition for a piece of this age otherwise.

Vintage and Antique Rings
Most of our vintage and antique rings are eligible for complimentary re-sizing. Please contact us with details of the ring you are interested in so that we can inform you if sizing to your required size is possible. The first re-sizing is complimentary after which a cost of £40 will occur for subsequent sizings.
Re-sizing usually takes 1-2 weeks to complete.
Modern and Bespoke Rings
Our modern and bespoke rings are made to order and so we will need to know the size required at the time of ordering. In some instances we can make the ring to an average size and then re-size the ring at a later date. Please contact us for details about sizing specific rings.
What if I don't know the ring size I need?
If you're not sure of the ring size you require then we recommend having the ring re-sized after it has been given to the recipient, they can then have their finger measured and we can take the ring in for sizing afterwards. This way we can ensure that the size is accurate first time.
