    I got my e-ring resized and it did not affect the engravings on the inside.  I’m also super surprised that your diamond looks different!  They should not have touched that at all.  The only difference I can see in my ring is the band is just slightly thinner on the very bottom than it was before.  It’s really nothing anyone else would notice.  I would probably take it back and complain, especially if it had to be sent to a special lab in the first place.  They should know how to resize a ring.

    I agree, I would have it redone, nothing should look different!

    @ktbee6:  I had my Vera Wang sized down quite a bit too.. The engraving was still okay and everything looked fine other than it taking 3-4 weeks. A few months later one of the small diamonds on the side fell out and I later read online that if you have diamonds that go down the band and they size your ring down it can cause problems. I went down to the store and explained how unhappy I was and that they should’ve just given me a ring in the right size. At that point I had my ring for well over a year, but the lady was kind enough to order me the same ring in the right size. What does your ring look like? I would just say I’m not happy with the ring after it’s been sized and ask them if you can get the ring in your actual size.

    @MrsRichard:  +100 This is exactly what I would do, OP. Order a new ring in your size; dont have them size a ring in another size to fit you because there is always the risk that they do a poor job. That kind of thing DRIVES ME CRAZY but unfortuantely it happens a lot!!

    @ktbee6:  OMG the Vera Wang rings are gorgeous. I agree with the pp, resizing such an intricate design (as hers r) with pave is a problem waiting to happen. Definitely bring it back and tell them your concerns. Ask then what is the plan if diamonds start falling out. Post a pic of your ring!

    @ktbee6:  I have a vera wang engagement ring which we chose together. The lady in the shop when we ordered it said they couldn’t be resized. I had to get the smallest size which is still half a size larger than I would wear because if it. I think it’s because of all of the details on the side. Beautiful, super sparkly rings though! Congrats.

    @wrkbrk:  Ya! It drives me nuts too. The people who work there should offer you the choice of getting you a ring in the right size or sizing it, that way there’s no one to blame when you start losing the pave diamonds on the sides.
