How to Use a Ring Stretcher

962U
This tool stretches the metal shank of stone-set rings or wedding bands, enlarging the ring size when other stretchers cannot be used. Sold with a wooden storage box and includes 17 polished roller dies (8 half-round dies, 8 V dies and 1 plain die) for ring sizes 5 and up.

STEP 1
Attach the ring stretcher to a sturdy surface (screws not included).
STEP 2
Turn the chrome plated handle counterclockwise to open.
STEP 3
Select a die that best matches the ring shank (half-round, "V" or plain), then match the width of the die's groove to the ring.
STEP 4

Lift the chrome-plated pin, place the selected die on top of the black gear (the hole in the die goes over the peg on the gear), then replace the pin.
STEP 5
Place the ring to be stretched onto the shaft connected to the base and tighten the handle.
STEP 6
