Just posting to ask if it’d be possible to get a 7.5mm stone put in to a Tiffany Knife Edge replica (as close to original as possible pretty much) setting? My jeweler is closed for like a week and I’m too impatient to not at least ask on here haha. Thinking of upgrading to a Forever One but I feel that the 8mm stone I originally got the setting made for is a bit overwhelming on my size 5 finger so wanting to go a bit smaller. The prong style is obviously not basket so I don’t see a problem with that. Hmm. Thoughts?
Setting is 14KWG.

0.5mm is a pretty big difference when it comes to prongs and so on. You have to talk to your jeweler, but it may mean really changing the flow of the setting, gaps in the head, weird prongs, and so on. Usually they tell you to replace the head (if possible for the setting) or entire setting for changes over a .1 or .2mm. But it is possible they might be able to rework or redo the prongs in a way that will work.
I had “reverse shrinkage” once too, so I feel you there! I also had an 8mm Amora enhanced OEC bezel solitaire on a size 5 finger and over time craved something smaller. I got a 7.5mm unenhanced OEC ring second hand (actually also in a Tiffany knife edge replica) and loved the size on my finger so much better. Much more flattering. I now have an even smaller diamond and love the size (in a halo, but the centre stone is smaller).
ETA: is this your sol011 setting? That is a setting where they can cut out the current head and put a new head in that will work better for your smaller stone than reworking it. The ring initially would have been put together that way…shank with a head soldered in. Those fittings are available to pretty much any jeweler so I would go talk to them, if you don’t want to send the ring back to Moissanite Co from Australia to do.
