          Ring sizing

          1. You pay £9 to cover Royal Mail Special Delivery costs for returning the ring to you (can be paid by cheque or back transfer).
          2. You ensure it's returned within 14 days of delivery.

          Please do contact me before returning any ring for a re-size, it is so useful to have a discussion to help gauge how much adjustment is needed.

          Please note: rings must be returned via a fully insured delivery service. I (Sue Lane) am not responsible for the delivery costs of returning a ring for re-sizing or for lost or damaged rings whilst in transit.)

          Sue will happily resize, refinish or repolish the ring at any time after the 14 days have expired, but at a cost based on the time needed to fulfil the work which Sue can quote before you return the ring.

          Not sure of your ring size?
