@OneDayMrsW:  Yeah it is not really good to size a ring down that much. The metal would have been moved drastically, but it they tightened the stones good you shouldnt  lose any stones right away. It really just depends on how good of a job they did.  Why did you not order it as a size four in the first place?

I’ve always been told its not good to go more than 1 (2 was pushing it) ring sizes up or down.  Now I’ve taken a ring up 3 sizes, and the band held REALLY well… however it was a solitar stone so there was no other gems/diamonds on it.

I have a ring with diamonds all around the band, My Fiance had it sized from a 7 to an 8, well turns out he was off. I got it down to a 7 1/2 then down again to a 7. They kept telling me its not the best idea to keep doing it. I acutally got it back today, and it was great. It took them a little longer because they had to make sure every stone was set. Just make sure they know what they are doing, but it can be done.

A size reduction that drastic is going to be bad for holding in the diamonds.  My original e-ring was a 6 sized down to a 4.  It was still too big, so I had to order the same ring in size 4 to be taken down to a 3.25 because they couldn’t make the original setting any smaller without risking my losing side stones.

My band is a very similar style. When I had my sent back to Blue Nile to size down .5 a size, I was asked them about it. They told me that if it was only a .5 or 1 size it usually was okay but more than that they would just replace the band. The problem is all the adjustment has to come from one half of the band, which makes it an oval shape.

@OneDayMrsW:  It is unfortunate sometimes that the sales person that is working with you guys is not always the person that knows what they are talking about. The jewler himself is the one sometimes to ask. 

I know that my dad(master jeweler) gets frustrated when the sales reps up front tell people that that things like that can work, when in some cases it does but others it would be better to have ordered the correct size in the first place. 

However, in the jewelry stores defence it is very rare for a women to be a size 4 so I assume that they never figured you would have such a small finger.

It should be okay! My now husband ordered a size 8 for my engagement ring! http://pinterest.com/pin/250372060504950985/ that is both my engagement and wedding bands (the engagement ring is the 3 inside bands) he also went to a family owned store. We took it down to a 6.25. and it is fine I didn’t lose any stones either! , I don’t have any problems with it at all!I wouldn’t worry to much!
