I haven’t had it done, but I think they can just put a new (thinner) shank on the ring.

I had it done.  There is a thread somewhere where I put before and after photos.  The jeweler just shaved down the shank (band) on both sides; I think I went from 2.5mm to about 2mm.  He didn’t even charge me to do it.

I think the band will look even better shaved down.  Also, the Tiffany Lucida tapers from the basket and it is gorgeous.

Here’s an example that is closer to what yours will look like:

I think it actually looks better tapered from the basket. Normally I like thicker rings, but I think yours would look better thinned out a bit.

If the basket is the same size, it’s still going to take up the same amount of room on your finger once you add the wedding band, just with a larger gap.  If you want to do it because you think it will make the ering look better, then go for it, but if you want it to work better with a band, skip it.

@RunnerBride13:  did you ever do this? I just posted the same question for nearly the same ring, and just found yours. I’m so curious to hear!

@RunnerBride13 hi, did the process take long?

i am thinking about thinning out my band as well, but was hoping the jeweler would be able to do this in front of me?  (Instead of having to leave the stone with them).
