they might be able to do laser sizing by the area that has the missing diamond.  depends how much smaller you need it.  if you are always going to wear your engagement ring on the outside, then that’ll hold the band in.

oh okk.  as long as it’s not sized down too much, because that changes the curvature of the ring and might compromise the setting.  hopefully it works out because it’s a beautiful set

Rather than risk the integrity of the ring – and channel set eternities are even harder to size from what I recall than other forms of eternity as there is a risk of the “channel” getting stretched, etc – I would just get speed bumps/size beads or a horseshoe sizer put into it.

That way it will fit smaller, but won’t risk the setting AND you will have the flexibility of removing the bumps or sizer down the road if you need to for a bit more room (many women have their fingers change sizes over years due to pregnancy, arthritis, weight changes). Indeed, people generally are advised to buy eternity bands a bit bigger for this reason.

 

You could also solder it to your e-ring (always reversable!) which will both prevent wear of the rings on each other AND have it fit a big snugger overall.

I would not resize, even if a jeweler says they can, it might still compromise the channel and you could lose more stones. 

judging by the photo, it looks like it’s already close enough to be the correct size for you. are you sure it needs to be sized down? does it fall off when you point your hand down? 

I agree with @RayKay: if you really must size it down, just get something added inside the ring to make it smaller. 

a bonus is that the added metal could easily be removed in the future if the ring needs to be sized back up again.

i like the idea of a horseshoe sizer.

i don’t like sizing beads because they are not comfortable.

I say try a horseshoe sizer and see how you like it. I had one before and it was super uncomfortable. Do not size it can really mess up your ring.

I agree with raykay sizing an eternity band is asking to loose even more stones
