Yea I don’t understand what they are talking about.  Have you consulted a local jeweler as a comparison?  Usually with smaller fingers it can be cheaper since there are less stones/metal being used.  Not sure how substantial the savings is tho.

Humm, I don’t think so. They have to take out SOME diamonds/metal to downsize it that much!

I’m surprised they can even downsize it that much without compromising the prongs holding the diamonds in place. I would call them and ask them to explain precisely how they are going to do it until I’m satisfied. If they want your business then it’s in their best interest to provide you the details. They can’t just shrug you off and say something criptic, like you’re too dumb to understand how they do it or something.

Maybe they are selling you a size 4.5 ring rather than taknig the 7 and sizing it down?

Maybe the resize it by adding gold/platinum to the inside of the ring?

I had my eternity band resized to be slightly larger, and they were able to shave some of the gold from the setting part of the ring rather than re-build the whole thing.

@accorn: Unless they already have the ring in your exact size, I don’t see how thier reply could be true. I would talk to a local jeweler & then politely question them on thier response. Tell them what you’ve said here basically- ‘I’m alittle confused. I’ve spoken to X jeweler & they advised X on the resizing of eternity bands. Could you explain to this to me please? I am very interested in this beautiful ring’.

I would be cautious about them down sizing it that much. I had a pave ring like that and it didn’t work. Finally the jewleler had to order it made to my size (4.5) in order for stones to not fall our like they did when we downsized the ring.

I agree with PPs – ask them exactly how the process is done

@accorn: that sounds fine, but maybe instead of “enlighten” be more specific? Like “If you could tell me exactly how you resize it, that would help a lot!” (just to make sure they get what you mean, lol?)

that sounds like BS to me! i don’t see how they could resize it without removing diamonds and compromising the structural integrity of the remaining prongs. ask them politely if they can explain how they plan on resizing it (adding metal like a PP suggested? but then i’d think they’d have to charge you more). but really i’d keep looking because it sounds waaay fishy..
