titanium rings...can they be resized?

My husband has lost about 40lbs since we got married 7yrs ago and he can't wear his ring anymore cause it just falls off. I would like to get it resized for him for Christmas if it can be. And if it can't be I want to get him a new band. His wedding band is black titanium and he says they can't be resized. Is that true?

  • When we were looking for band for my hubby the jeweler told us they can not be resized. Good for your hubby.

  • Titanium cannot be resized. It should have a lifetime warranty though. My husband's titanium wedding band ended up getting a horrible scratch...no clue how he did it! But we took it back to the jewelers I bought it from with no receipt or anything, and they replaced it right then and there.

  • Jquevara thank you. I am very proud of him. He looks great. But it sucks he can't wear his ring anymore.

    Gemska thanks. I will call the Jewelers we went to and find out. I still have my papers from it somewhere but we have moved so many times since I have no idea where to look.

  • Your DH was right, they can't be re-sized. Maybe you could trade it in on a new band?

  • btw - they can't be re-sized because of the type of metal they are; they can't be soldered. :)

  • It can be re-sized, the same way it can be made in the first place. If it's not possible to work titanium, it's not possible to make it into rings, either.

    It may be that you need tof ind a specialist who works titanium... or that there are designs or finishes that will be lost if it's re-sized.

    Oooh, look, I'm famous with anonymous people...
