Where to get a ring re-sized?

ring in palmAmy tweeted last week:

I need to get my ring re-sized and my jeweler retired. Who do you like/trust around here?

She was nice enough to share the responses she got -- they're after the jump. Got one to add? Share, please!

We've added links.

@BizReviewLists: Singer's Jewelers in Guilderland

@katerbirch: I just took my engagement ring to Northeastern Fine Jewelers on Western and am getting it resized at a pretty decent price

@AngelosTzelepis: My wife uses Hannoush for services like cleaning/repair.

@tonyk: northeastern next to Xgates entrance, great place.

@TheresaJDRFneny: Connelley's Diamond Gallery in Newton Plaza

@john_jordan: i trust Hannoush (went to school w/one of them)

@mrodgers79: Dennis Connelly (Newton Plaza latham) has been my fam's jeweler for years. Have had custom pieces made and resizes through him.

@mikeny1974: Dennis Connelly - Bought my wifes engagement ring and wedding ring from him. he is awesome.

@reneemca: jk bloom in troy. they are super nice and do great work. prices seem good.

@KimClune: Our wedding rings are from Northeastern and they have served us well when we needed resizing, etc.

@mrodgers79: for what its worth i've also had good luck with Northeastern... but Connelly's feels more personal. you can't go wrong!

@Ellsass: Top Jewelers in Latham, nice family-run place. They resized mine (just gold, though) 2.5 sizes very well.

So, recommendations for Connelly's (3), Northeastern (3), Hannoush (2), JK Bloom (1), Singer's (1) and Top Fine Jewelry (1).

(Thanks, Amy!)

You should be aware that your ring has to be made of a real metal like gold or silver or platinum. I've been wanting to get my college ring re-sized (it's too small now), but the ring is currently out of warranty from the college ring company, and no jeweler will touch an alloy college ring for resizing - especially if it's made of Arcturium or Siladium or Jostenium.

I second JK Bloom in Troy. They resized my 7 ring to a 6 1/4 size, and I was very happy. I have also gone there for other items, and always been happy with their customer service.

I've had good expiences with Singer's, also Adam's Jewelry in Stuyvesant Plaza.
I have silver rings I can't wear because of slightly enlarged knuckles (arthritis) so maybe I should get this done too.

Always been happy with everything we've had done at Mayfair Jewelers in Glenville.

I had great service from Mayfair Jewlers in Latham.They charged a reasonable fee and were able to resize some rings other jewelers would not touch- like taking a ring that had been badly reduced and enlarging it five sizes.

I'm seconding (thirding?) Singer's in Guilderland. My fiance and I have had really good experiences shopping there for everything from necklaces to wedding bands. They're honest and fair and seem to have a good deal of knowledge about jewelry, sizing, and fit.

Kendrick Jewelers on Everett Rd. Vince resized my rings for me recently. They did a great job.

Drue Sanders on Western Ave, just outside of Crossgates. She owns the shop and they do the work on-site:

Northeastern is usually the place I bring my rings. They do a good job and they don't charge me an arm and a leg.

Finkle's on Central Ave in Colonie, just west of the Northway is our go to place. Always extremely accommodating and just nice folks who go the extra mile for their clients.

I second Finkle's on Central Ave. Ask for John, he does great repair work.

Anyone know if any of these places will custom make rings? My engagement ring is an odd shape (antique with a circle around main stone) and I've been to 7 jewelers, both mall stores and independant places, and no one had a ring that exactly fit it - all said I'd need to get something made - but am not sure who to trust to do a good job on this

Northeastern
