Bring your ring to a jeweler and ask them.

With that ring it can be done… They will just change out the head of the ring if needed. So you can go smaller with a stone no problem!

I believe that TrueLove407: is correct.  The jeweler should be able to re-make the top of the ring by putting in a new head, if necessary.

I’d just get a new solitaire for the diamond.  It’ll be more hassle/money to get a new head to switch out the sapphire for a smaller diamond size.

MoonAndStars:  it’ll actually be a lot cheaper to get a new head on the ring for the diamond. A setting is way more pricey because it uses a lot more gold. It cost maybe $100 when I had a head on aring done   just a few years ago. And the jeweler will credit the old heads gold too. And if you buy the diamond from that jeweler, theyll usually just charge for the work not the head. To change a head on that setting is not less than a new ring at alL.

I believe I read somewhere that there is room to play up to about 1 millimeter- beyond that they would have to change the head on the setting  … ?.definitely check with a jeweler though. By the way your ring is beautiful – white sapphires have such a lovely glow to them!
