Give up on the old jeweler and just get a new band.  I am assuming this is a solitaire? You will probably spend the same amount of money on a new band as you would for adding gold to have it resized. FYI I would say something to the old jeweler and write a review online about this.

I have resized changed settings had missing diamond and broken prongs all fixed at different times and places I can’t believe he resized the ring thats just wrong I would get money back and go to another jeweler. Also shopping for a new band is fun!

I don’t understand why they would have made the ring smaller to reset a diamond. It sounds a little shady to me. Even if the jeweler needed extra gold he should have used sheet solder, i don’t know of any bench jeweler that would take gold out of the bottom unless it were to resize the ring. 

Also i would say 99% of upsizing is done by cutting the band and adding gold, not by stretching it thin especially if you have side stones.
