So my center stone recently chipped and I was really considering getting a moissanite stone because I love the way they sparkle and my current setting. Anyway, the setting is made very specifically for a 1/10th of a carat center stone, but I was hoping to get a bigger center stone, about a .5 or .6. Does anyone know if the prongs can be changed without damaging the setting or the other stones?I’m giving you guys a picture of my ring so you can see what I was saying. I was kinda hoping they could cut away the old center prongs and put in a simple four prong setting for the diamond.

I think it could be done. they would probably cut away the old prongs like you mentioned, and bend the ring more open to widen the gap. in that case, technically I think you could put in any size stone you want, even a large one!
it might cost less to order a new ring, but if you are willing to pay for some custom work, go for it! you can always take it in to a jewelry designer and ask for a quote.

yes it is possible, your side stones will be covered, your center stone will have to be elevated and you would probably loose the centerprongs / space entirely. I know you love that ring but changing it that drasticly is going to 1. cost 2. take a long time (depending on who does it) and 3. be sory of impractical. I would order another ring.
But I haven’t worked at a jewlers for several years now and your local jewlwer might be able to do things that we coudln’t. Take it to them and see what they say.
