*AS FOR RING SIZING: There is no cost for sizing of any of my rings that are in fact, sizeable. I am more than happy to have my wonderful jeweler do the sizing of your ring. However, If I have the re-sizing done prior to shipment, I would not be able to extend my usual 14 day return policy. The issue being that the ring will no longer be as it was when originally described in this listing there by making it impossible for me to offer it to an underbuyer or re-listed in a future sale should you for any reason decide to return it. I am happy to have the sizing done prior to shipping but the item will only be returnable if I have errored in my description. Specifically, the item's metal type or karat content, the identidication or naturalness of the gemstone(s) or the accuracy of color, cut, clarity and size. Please know that the weight will vary after sizing and will not be changed from the original appraisal. To ensure the quality of most items, I have already paid for an independant GIA graduate gemologist to perform a verbal or written appraisal as verification of these details (written appraisals are included with your item). If you agree that you shall only return the ring because of an obvious error in the description (as per policy of an item being "Not As Described") and for no other reason, I shall gladly proceed with the sizing prior to mailing. F.Y.I.; Sizing does take about a week to have done so please expect a delay in the posted "Expected Delivery Date". If you are in any way concerned with the accuracy of my description and first prefer to inspect the item, I would like to suggest that I send you the ring in its current unre-sized state so you can examine it in person. Assuming it is just as described and exceeds your expectations, you can then ship it back to me fully insured. After your decission to proceed with the transaction, I will promptly have my jeweler make it to the size you have requested. I will also reimburse to you all postage costs of shipping it back with insurance for sizing as a partial refund through your original paypal payment. Please remember to include a note stating the postage & insurance fees associated with returning the packaged ring. I am sorry if this causes you any inconvienence but after my paying for an appraisal and sizing along with the time of taking it back & forth to the jeweler, you can hopefully understand why this is necessary prior to my kindly offering to have any sizing done. My greatest concern is your being completely satisfied with your purchase. If you have any further questions, please let me know prior to offerding. Kindest Regards, Bernice Ellen
