MrsViolin:  Wouldn’t hurt to ask and see if anything can be done. Since the design is only at the top of the ring, it may be pretty easy to shave down the shank to be more in line with the picture.

Yes- tell him precisely what you want! He can thin it out for you no problem.

I would totally ask him to make it narrower. It doesn’t look like it would be that difficult with that design.

MrsViolin:  Yup, I’d ask him, too. Or tell him. Haha. I know I looked at CADs before giving the okay and there were things I definitely had the jeweller change, including thinning out the shank, too! I prefer the daintiness as well. Super pretty ring!

I would ask him to narrow it. However, props to him – that is VERY similar to your inspiration pic.

I think he did a fabulous job! I don’t think he will have any trouble narrowing and reshaping the shank. (He might warn against it because it will thin with age.) In any event, it’s very pretty.

That can definitely be fixed..just tell him how you feel that the shank size was an important feature that you shouldnt be a big deal to shave it down.
