How can this be fixed?

The issue that there isn’t space; adding another ring cannot solve that issue. Either the spacer or the metal of one of the bands will rub the basket, so the only solution would be to have the ring reworked so the basket sits on top the band and the other rings can fit underneath. That is the only thing that would give you space to stack.

It still won’t fit right but maybe it will sit a little better if you switch the bands? Put the cherry blossom band next to your new stone. Good luck!

How do your bottom bands fit? From the first photo, it looks like they sit tight, making it difficult to push them further down your hand.

@jennthelibrarygirl:  I’ve seen people get their jeweler to cut out a section at the bottom of one side of the basket that it’s deep and high enough to allow the ring to sit flush. Would that be he an option for you to consider? TBH though I think it would just be cheaper to just buy a new setting for your stone with less of a basket that allows your ring to sit flush with the bands. I’ve seen semi mounts similar for what you need go pretty cheaply on ebay…

Pretty diamond BTW!

I feel your pain!  My fingers are short and I wear a size 8.  In my opinion, if you have a jeweler alter the underside of the basket, it’ll ruin the look of your new ring.  You might be able to find a flat band that will sit underneath the basket, but the two rings will rub and damage each other.  I wouldn’t recommend swapping the position of your cherry blossom band because of this.

You’d have to rework the whole ring to raise the entire basket, or cut out part of the basket. That style of basket is a bad design for what you want.

You might need to get a curved band to make it work? I am not really sure but that diamond is amazing. Honestly, that might be the prettiest diamond I’ve seen on the bee. Congrats on 17 years!
