If you resize it from costco I believe it voids the warranty and return policy. So if you were planning on using that, keep in mind! 

If you love it and can get insurance/warranty elsewhere and dont plan on returning it, then for sure resize it. That said, your jeweller doesnt seem very knowledgeable. This sort of ring shouldn’t have the pave popping out over 2 sizes. Have you shopped around at jewellers? This should actually be a pretty easy re-size.

What about resizing it down by one size and then putting in sizing beads or something?

Agree with PP though—get a second opinion from another reputable jeweler first.

Can Costco order it  in a 5 for you and if not I would do the down 1 size add sizing beads

mona7020 :  It isn’t uncommon for diamonds to fall out while sizing down. It happens to almost every ring we size at my shop going down more than one size with diamonds down the shank. If you’re working with a good, experienced and reputable jeweler they should be able to reset them and you wouldn’t even notice. I highly recommend getting insurance through a company like Jeweler’s Mutual that will cover any damage or missing stones just in case they come loose in the future. And have the jeweler show you everything is nice and tight before you walk out 🙂

mona7020 :  This is totally normal for this setting. Have it resized and pay the extra to have the stones reset. The angle of the cirlce will become tighter, so the prongs holding the stones will be stretched apart to enable the ends of the band to meet again when a portion is cut out. Imagine a worm shape roll of sugar icing, bend it into a circle, then cut out a slice, and bend it into a circle again. It doesn’t reflect the quality of the setting at all. 7 to 5 is a big jump so it is actually very good of the jeweller to warn you before proceeding, I would trust them. Go for it bee!

I had my ring from Costco resized from a 7 down to a 5.25.  Mine has channel set side stones and I haven’t had any issues at all.  My jeweler did warn me that it probably wouldn’t be exactly round due to the side stones.  That made me nervous but it turned out great, barely noticeable.  And fingers aren’t perfectly round anyway!

I had a ring resized down a couple of sizes before and they must have not done it properly as one of the side diamonds fell out after some months. And then another one fell out after some months. So I just stopped wearing it in the end. Now I’m always wary about sizing down rings rather than ordering to size when there are side diamonds.

I would make sure to ask the jeweller who’s responsible if the side diamonds fall out after it’s been resized. Because they could easily blame Costco and not take responsibility. Also get it insured for protection as well.

Pave work does not hold up when the setting is changed more than 1/2 to 1 size. I’d return it and go to Whiteflash online. They have a lot of setting options and fabulous diamonds.
