Firstly I am sorry to hear about your accident but am happy that you are ok.

I just wanted to say that resizing up is not a problem at all as long as it’s within a few sizes (within 5 sizes is normally doable) and I assume the difference is not that severe?

Sizing up a plain solitaire really shouldn’t be too difficult. I would also suggest getting sizing beads placed in the band to help with spinning.

If you do decide to get the new setting, however, my only suggestion (in addition to sizing beads) would be to get the rubies rather than garnet, only because rubies are harder. Both are lovely stones though!

I am sorry to hear about your accident!

I see nothing wrong with getting a new setting but sizing up a solitaire should not be a big deal as PP have said.  A diamond/ruby 3 stone ring sounds very pretty though!

I agree with @6598731ssfse3:  sizing up a ring with a plain band is actually a very straightforward process for any jeweler to do. they would just add a little bit of metal to the very bottom of the band. in most cases, you can’t even see the spot where it happened.

I’m so glad you pulled through from your accident!

@trueblue14:  I am very sorry to hear of your accident. In response to your post, garnets will be easier to find than rubies if you want natural stones. although I am not sure what size or shade you want. That probably affects it too.  And both are gorgeous.

YES – Diamonds look wonderful in between a pair of rubies! (Can’t see from the picture, but the red color makes the diamond look really bright, white, and sparkly.)

I’m sorry about your accident, but sizing a solitaire should be NO PROBLEM AT ALL!!! I’d love to see it with the red stones though, it gives the ring a “second chance” like you had, and the red represents your struggles!!! love it!!! (but that’s just me probably overthinking it…)
