Does anyone know anywhere locally where I can get a tight ring stretched?

There's a place just off old Compton St that will do it. Pretty cheap too.

Ask for Phil McKracken. He should be able to sort you out.

If you pop in to Benn Doon & Phil McCravis Ltd., Walkers Court, nr. Brewer Street, you'll be close.

Assuming you're talking about jewellery - there are a couple of good jewellers in ED who should be able to advise you - not every type of jewellery/ring can be stretched safely as I understand it. I would try phoning Davies and Vaughan and ask them if they could do it.

I always thought it was Ben Doon & Phil McCavity you had to ask for.

May well be Salsa, there's so many options these days in Soho (so I'm told).

Thanks for the tip. As it happens Davies and Vaughan were the only jewellers i could find in SE22 when I looked into this a couple of years ago and they were not much help on the phone. They could not give me a ballpark idea of the cost without seeing how much it needed to be stretched or, as you say, whether it was possible. Fair enough maybe, but as it is my partner's ring there was no point bringing it in without bringing her finger in too and I wanted to do it as a surprise so I was a bit stumped. On reflection though, having seen the answers on this thread maybe they thought i was taking the piss.

As for the rest of you grow up!

Could you take in a ring you know fits for them to take the size from, thus saving the need for your partner to attend?

Might do, but I suspect they'd want the actual finger to get a perfect fit. Thanks.

Also, what about that jeweller near the Co-op pharmacy, on the corner?
