Don’t do it! It can be done but can cause so many different issues. It can make the channel setting very lose. My mom has been a jeweler for all of my life. She says that regardless of the type no one should get their wedding ring/band sized if it has stones. They should order or buy it in their size to start because it makes the ring lose its integrity.

Eeek!  That is a huge size difference.  I haven’t done it personally, but someone I know did resize from I think it was a 6 or 7 to 4.5, with a pave band.  Two stones popped out that same night she got it back.

I had my channel e-ring sized UP – from a 6 to an 8. It had no problems, but they just thinned out the platinum band and I had no trouble with the stones. But going down seems a lot riskier – I would definitely make sure you ask a good few different jewelers. Sizing channel bands is a real pain! Good luck. 🙂
