utb1992 :  A jeweler advised me that bands with diamonds sometimes can’t be sized without messing with the integrity of the band.  I was also advised that it can be best to have rings a half size bigger to allow for swelling when hot etc or when you get older.  Also, like pp stated, once you add your band it feels more snug.  You can get sizing beads put in.  This is a good opt on because it allows more flexibility as they can be removed.

It definitely can be done. Bring to a trusted jeweler and have them put metal sizing beads on. This usually only takes a day and they can be removed by the jeweler fairly easily.

My ring looks a lot like yours except it’s cushion cut instead of round. I got it sized down 1/2 size. I got the ring last May and thought it might be too big, and then when fall came I knew it was definitely too loose because my fingers shrunk down more in the cold. No problems with resizing whatsoever.

utb1992 :  I got mine resized and I’ve had no issue. My jeweler said some people couldn’t resize it without issue but he could! He was so confident that no stones would fall out that he wrote on my receipt that if any of my stones ever fell out, he’d do the work and replace them for free. I’ve never had an issue and I’ve been wearing it for 7 years.
