My fingers used to be a 7 3/4 and now they are an 8 1/2. I need to get them resized knowing that during summer they will be even bigger. My question is the cost to go up that much and if it effects the pave stones if it goes back to original designer? Anyone have this experience?

Generally, designers say they won’t go up or down more than 2 sizes. I had my set sized down one half size (from a 5.5 to 5.0) and had issues with both my engagement ring and band. Stones kept coming loose. I have small pave set diamonds on both. I was told by a jeweler that going up is easier/better for the ring than going down. I think the jeweler should be able to give you a good idea as to how safe it is, especially if they custom made it. As for cost, I think my resizing was free because I have a care plan. Another ring (more simple, no pave diamonds) that i had resized, down 1 full size was about $20 (although I might be confusing that price with the engraving cost….).

@soontobe_mrs_k: took my ring in today. Got two quotes of $360 To size up Cause of band thickness and pave diamonds. Ugh. Feel better knowing it will be a perfect size now especially with the heat this summer.
