    I wish I had known that you shouldn't size down a ring more than 1 size that has multiple baguettes in it. The jewelers told us that the previous place that sold the wedding band to us should have told us. They said they would try to have their technicians size it down from a 9 to a 6 3/4 but if they can't, they won't even try to touch the ring and just give it back. The jeweler told us that the reason why they can't size it down more than 1 size is that it risks the baguettes popping out and falling out if they take it down more than that. I'm so bummed!!!!! I really fell in love with this ring. I have never seen another one like it. I'm really hoping that the slim chance that they'll be able to do it and do it well will happen!!! Otherwise, I have to find a new wedding band!!!

            yeah, our wedding is in 2 months. I don't think that's enough time to get a new ring made!!! She said there was a slim chance it was possible so I'm kinda banking on that!!! xxx-Fingers Crossed-xxx

              What about local jewelers and not like a large chain type store? I know we have a local jeweler who makes amazing custom rings, but it only takes her a month and you can pay her a fee to have it done in 2 weeks. But someone like that could make the ring just like you like it.

              Or what about etsy? They could use the diamonds out of your current ring and just make a smaller band!

                If you can't get it sized, I would definitely try to have someone make it custom. I am having to do that and they are saying it will only take about a month.

                  I had my ring custom made and it took 2 weeks I would shop around.

                      i fell in love with a ring that was way out of budget....found out later that we could get it made exactly the same...with a better stone, and in platinum for almost a grand less than the big market chain...keep looking you'll find someone who can do what you need!
