    I got a new bracelet paid a jeweler to install and it doesn't fit right

    I just ordered a romunda watch band for my luch wind up as the band it came with is leather I really love the leather look but I'm vegetarian and feel guilty wearing leather so I figured this band would give the look with out the guilt. I measured my wrist and ordered this band online 6.125 paid a jeweler 5 bucks to install it which she simply snapped it off and on with a knife i put it on and it felt slightly loser than my other expansion bands but figured i would try a slightly looser band hours later I could not deal with the band flopping around the jeweler was closed today so I simply swapped out the band with the old leather band again. I feel guilty wearing leather band I like the fit so much better and look :( my question is how much will the jeweler charge me to resize the expansion band so it fits snuggly. I realized today how easy it is to install a band with a simple dull knife and steady hands so I won't be asking them for that service again but id like to give this kind of band another try if I can get it to fit as tight as a leather band can anyone tell me about how much this service would cost? I've recently tried to resize this kind of band and broke one not doing this again myself thanks!

    How would we know? Ask her.

    just figured maybe someone has asked a jeweler for this service and maybe they could tell me how much they paid as a rough estimate ....

    Usually ranges from $20-35 give or take. Pretty easy and not time consuming to do.

    I ordered a short size band off ebay same kind ( romunda) I hope it is what they say it is . hopefully this will fit figured id rather just get a new band online than pay to have them resize the other one I think I'll just take it to the jeweler again to change the band as I don't want to damage the leather band doing it my self pretty confident changing metal bands my self now however
