    Hmm no idea about the ring but I am definitely smiling at the happy dance 🙂 Congrats! 

    If they have the right size setting, it makes sense that they should be able to make the ring with the stone for you… but if for whatever reason they can’t make that exact ring in the right size, look into having it custom made, even if it takes a bit longer. I know you’re excited but it is worth the wait to have the ring of your dreams!

    I think usually they only do 1/2 sizes.   Going from a size 7.5 to 7.75 shouldn’t be a problem, but a 7.5 to an 8 might be because of all the diamond work on the band itself.  Going from an 8 to a 7.75 also shouldn’t be a problem.  They should be able to add some metal to the band without diamonds to make the 7.5 a tad bigger.  You don’t want them squeezing the 8 down to a 7.75!

    If I were you, I’d take this picture to a local reputable jeweler and ask them to custom make one for you and get a price quote. I know a lot of women on here order their rings online and have had no issues with it, but if they don’t have it in your size and you aren’t getting a straight answer, I’d explore other options first. If all else fails, then custom order it.

    The size in that picture looks bigger than a 7 or an 8 to me if the centre is 1ct.

    @kansas_nurse:  I think that’s a good idea. I personally like being able to physically hold someone responsible for something as important as my engagement ring and like being able to talk to the jeweler directly. Should you not love the ring and want something changed, at least you can talk to them face to face and directly whenever you want and not have to deal with the run around. Good luck! Post pics once you’ve got that ring on your finger!

    If it’s just a tad snug as you said, you may want to consider ordering that size. Soon your finger will have that dent that comes with constant ring wearing so it will fit looser and when that happens it won’t be in danger of falling off. These are the things the jeweler discussed with me when I got my first nice ring.

    If it’s truly too tight, of course and not just a little snug, definitely go up a size. However, I will say that unless you have personal recommendations or a good relationship with a jeweler already, going to custom route may not be any quicker, it may be more expensive, and it may not perfectly replicate the ring you are in love with. And, god forbid, there COULD be quality issues (again, if you have personal recommendations or relationships with a jeweler already, feel free to disregard.)

    I know you are SUPER excited about this, and I totally relate, but don’t rush forward in your excitement and make a hasty decision that you might regret when the excitement wears away a bit (something I am TOTALLY guilty of). If this is the ring you love, even if you have to wait to get it custom made, better to wait to get it custom made by the original company than an unknown element.

    @kansas_nurse:  I know the feeling of waiting! I waited 4 years, which isn’t too long, but we will be at the 6 years mark when we get married. If it is any consolation to you, I had to wait 8 long weeks to get my ring because I had to have it custom made in my size (3.5, I think) so I’d forgotten what it looked like by the time he proposed. I was hoping they could just order a standard size, but our jeweler, who is my FI’s uncle, told me that sizing it to my size would distort the shape of the ring. But the wait was worth it! And as @TeamAwesome:  mentioned, the jeweler you pick to go to should be referred or reputable. And the ring not being exact is also a possibility.
