It doesn’t sound like a big deal to me.  Rings have to be re-sized.  All the time.  Call a different store and ask someone else just about the ring.

The only rings that I know of that cannot be re-sized (or that are REALLY difficult and unadvisedly re-sized) are (1) Eternity bands – (rings where the diamonds go all the way around) because iit weakens the prongs that hold the diamonds and (2) Rings made of Tungsten Carbide.

Trust me, they will be able to re-size this ring.  ESPECIALLY since it will only be 1/2 size.  Some jewelers will advise you not to re-size rings more than 2 sizes in either direction because (1) it changes the look of the ring and (2) it weakens the ring and the prongs that hold the stones.  But re-sizing it one size – they do that every day!  So no worries!

@helstrong–hahahah well, glad I could help.  I mean, I’m sure resizing pave rings can be more complicated than a regular band, but fact of the matter is: people buy pave rings all the time from Jewelers, they’re not all made to the specs of each buyer.  You very well my be without your ring for quite awhile (4weeks) while it gets resized.  But call somewhere else that sells it…  Relax, you’ll be fine.

@Helstrong—hahah I understand.  I am on my second engagement ring, and there is a 1/4 size difference between the two and I don’t even notice it… You may be surprised, the original size may just fit fine.  Don;t worry, you’re not a dork!
