Hello, ladies! My bf and I have just ordered my e-ring today!! I know, exciting, right? However, there’s just one little glitch…it needs to be downsized, a lot, because of my extremely slender fingers.
The diamond is small (0.23 ct) and it’s size is now 14 (I don’t know what size corresponds for US). I’m a size 6 (meaning 46 mm finger circumference), so yeah, you get the point.
My question is: will it be more breakable afterwards? Is there any risk? The lady at the counter asked us whether the lady we talked to yesterday (her boss) said it could be done. I remember yesterday they wrote “size 6” on it, so I guess they thought it could be done. What do you think?

Misaki27: Can we have a pic of your ring to see the style?
I think the re-sizing issue is less related to the size of your center stone, than whether there are diamonds on the band.
Do you have a plain shank band (solid gold or platinum) with a solitaire style diamond on top? If so, the re-sizing should not be a problem.
Or do you have diamonds on the band that will be re-sized?

I’m so dumb, I didn’t take pics. It’s sort of like this one, only with 6 prongs: The band is a bit “twisted”, like in the pic and it’s in white gold. I only have a solitaire diamond on top, no diamonds on the band.

Nice ring, I love those small diamond rings!
Plain bands can be resized without problems, it’s only the sidestones in bands that give problems, like pave bands.

As long as there’s not a huge size difference it will be fine. Say for instance if it were a US size 11 it wouldn’t be able to be sized to a 6 because it wouldn’t be a circle anymore, but more oval. The good news is that it’s a plain shank so that will be an easy fix.

Thanks a lot, I feel much more relieved!

You shouldn’t have any problems with that style.

Nope, you should not have any issues. It’s beautiful!

Take it to a good trusted jeweler and no, that won’t be a problem at all.

I think I’ve found something useful, the international ring sizing chart. My country (a Eastern European one) goes with the Swiss Size or Japanese Size, namely in my case, a 6 (European Size=46 mm). This corresponds to US size: 3 3/4.
Basic math leads me here: if the ring I’m having resized is a Swiss/Japanese size of 14, this takes me to US size of 6 3/4.
So, let me put it this way: is it ok to resize a 6 3/4 ring to a 3 3/4?

Misaki27: There should be no issue, as others said. Sizing down a plain shank isn’t a problem. It’s an issue when there are side stones. I wear a 4.25 (US) and have frequently purchased larger rings size 7 or 8 and had them sized down for my finger. The jeweler also would be able to tell if you if it’s possible to do or not. At the jewelry store where I work, we don’t take jobs that we can’t perform. Good luck! I’m sure it will turn out great!
