Will you post a picture of the ring for us to look at?

I think it should work, although the second ring is quite pretty too and this would make it unwearable.

I think you could “transfer” the little side stones from the second ring to the first ones, and then have it as a plain band cluster ring, so you could continue to wear both 🙂

And I totally fell in love with the first ring, what is the center stone? It’s such a pretty color!

From what i can see, I don’t think that this is possible. There is a small chance that the setting can be reworked to acomodate the larger stones but it would not be an easy, simple swap. Why don’t you go to a local jeweler and have him/her take a look?

I agree with RinaRoo, I would talk to a jeweler.  Prongs do have a certain leeway, but unlike prongs for the center diamond, prongs on the band are usually made for a specific diamond size… If you manipulate them too much, you risk possibly losing a diamond.  Also, it might be cheaper to just get a new setting and put the diamonds in there?

Couldnt you just keep the second ring as a RHR?  it seems such a shame to break it down.

Why don’t you have one of the rings dipped to match the other? That’s what I would do. It doesn’t cost too much and I would pick which is your favourite metal tone. If you love the yellow gold, have the new ring dipped yellow and wear as a right hand ring. I wouldn’t change anything else about them!

If the stones are bigger than the prongs, that isn’t possible without new prong settings.  You would have to measure with a caliper.  Just take it to a local jeweler.  It looks like you would need new settings for the larger stones.  Re-using prongs is never a good idea because it weakens them to bend them back and back again.

@MissLibra: This is exactly my suggestion. If you had one of the dipped then you could wear them both!

My mom had all her yellow gold dinner rings dipped in white gold to match her new engagement ring and she hasn’t redipped them since getting it done over two and a half years ago and they look great (she wears one of them on her right hand everyday)
