Well I’m not much help because I only like plain gold/silver/platinum  ( ie no stones etc)  for  wedding rings   . And I  think your  fears might be justified   for a ring worn every day under every condition as wedding rings customarily are. But that is a lovely ring !!!

Very pretty!

With a full enamel ring, I think you may want to treat it like a full eternity ring; most people I know in that case, if they are concerned about resizing in the future, buy the ring a tad bigger to accommodate for future changes from aging, pregnancy, and so on, and put in beads or a horseshoe sizer if it is too loose for them that can be removed in the future if they need the room.

Enamel rings can be sized but it requires the enamel to be removed/replaced, essentially, which can be a little more costly and require someone with enamel repair experience: http://www.callagold.com/all-about-rings/how-much-to-have-my-enamel-ring-sized/

Enamel covered pieces are going to be a bit more susceptible to damage than a solid metal band, obviously, so you need to consider your lifestyle and whether you want to wear it 24/7 no matter what, or are willing to remove for certain activities (which honestly should be done even with solid metal jewelry due to risks to fingers and metals from chlorine, etc)  That said, plenty of antique enamel pieces have survived a long time!

Enamel can be repaired, and even have the color changed – but it would require an experienced jewelrer with specific experience in enamel repair/restoration. Enamel often shows up in antique jewelry, so locating an antique jewelry dealer/repairer would be a good place to start!
