Basically, sizing is done to a piece of metal by simply adding or subtracting from its bottom in order to alter its size. You can opt to compress or stretch the wedding band if it does not have main stones or paved stones.
To make the ring smaller, the jeweler will be subtracting a portion of the metal. Usually, it is done at the bottom part so that the flaw will not be visible. After cutting, the jeweler will plier it back. To completely put the two cut portions of the ring, the jeweler will solder them. To cover the flaws, it will be polished.
If you want to add size to the ring, it simply means that you are going to fuse additional metal to it as well. The metal that will be added should match with the ring’s current metal type. If the metal is 14K gold, the add on will also be a 14K gold–nothing more nothing less.
