Question
QUESTION: I just bought a beautiful  sterling silver hinged bangle (made in Mexico).  Is it possible to enlarge it? It's quite heavy .

ANSWER: Hi Elena,
Yes it is possible to enlarge it to any size you want but the jeweler must know the procedures otherwise it will be damaged.
If possible send me a picture and I will try to guide you better.

Thanks,

QUESTION: Since it is difficult to find a good silversmith in my area, I'm considering sending it to you for enlargement.
Do you have an estimate of the price range for enlarging it by one inch?

Answer
the charges in this case is not for the amount of silver to be used on it but the amount of time I will spend working on it.
I will charge you $95 to do the work but when you get it back you will no know where it was enlarged.
If you decide to send it to me please do so to;
