Handmade jewelry is made entirely by hand and not by machine. Artisans take time and care to make each item.

Handcrafted jewelry is also usually of a much higher quality then machine made jewelry because it is checked by a real person, however some of the process of handcrafted jewelry may have be done by a machine, for example a machine polish or the use of a cast for consistency.

What Men’s Rings Can Be Re-Sized?

Softer, workable metals can be resized, such as Gold, Platinum, White Gold, Palladium and Silver. Ring resizing lets you change the band or circumference of a ring in a situation such as weight loss or gain, or moving a ring to another finger. Not every metal can be resized, and even metals than can be resized shouldn’t be pushed more than one or two sizes up or down because it will damage the ring.

What Men’s Rings Can Not Be Re-Sized?

Contemporary metals such as Colbalt, Tungsten, Titanium, Stainless Steel and Ceramic cannot be resized, the same goes for bands made of non-metal materials e.g. glass, wood and quartz. Be sure to measure carefully before purchasing rings made of these modern metals. Some rings cannot, or should not, be resized because of a design feature, for example if the ring has stones set around the entire band, an engraving, or other design feature that would be ruined or distorted with re-sizing.
