    I've had my engagement ring since February 2009, but I didn't want to give it up to get it resized. I didn't want a traditional e-ring, so my fiance got me a band as an e-ring. It has 5 diamonds going across and I absolutely love it. We even found a wedding band to match it (has 10 smaller diamonds). Two of the diamonds started to come loose so I *FINALLY* gave up the e-ring to get it fixed and have it resized.

    Well...the jeweler said it can't be resized to a size 5 because the diamonds will pop out! So now I either have to wear the size 7 with a ring guard or figure out something else to do with it.

      Any chance you can take the diamonds from your ring and put in a new size 5 band that matches the original your FI picked? I can't think a ring guard would be the best lifetime solution. Good luck.

        My friend had those little metal balls put on the inside of her ring to make it smaller and you cant even see it! Can they take it down even a 1/2 or 1 size?

          Wow, how have you been wearing a size 7 for so long if you're a 5? My rings fall off if my fingers just shrink up a little or get too tight when they swell, so 2 sizes seems like alot.

          Anyway, I was going to suggest what someone else said - can't they remove the diamonds and reset them into a smaller setting? Otherwise, I've heard good things about the balls that they weld to the interior of the ring. Not sure if it would do much since it's 2 sizes.

            I think the little balls welded inside the band would be the best solution - even if it only brings you to a six it will still be better than a seven! Good luck!

              I agree with what others have said...I would look into taking the diamonds out and have them put into a new band that fits you. I mean this is a ring that you are going to wear every day for the rest of your life...it should fit, be comfortable, and look good :)

                The balls would be a good option. Or you can have the band redesigned.
                There are a lot of jewelry shops out there that do custom bands, that's what I've been looking into for myself. My brother and SIL actually had their bands made from scratch using gold from unused pieces of jewelry family members gave them. If you find a good store I bet they can remake the same ring for you out of the one you have now. Then it would look the same and be from the same source. It's not a cheap option, but for something like that it would be worth the extra cash to me.

                  Thanks ladies. I've been wearing it with the ring guard, but it's annoying and I definitely can't see myself wearing it with the ring guard forever. If I get the diamonds put into a different band, it won't match my wedding band anymore because the diamonds line up perfectly. I'll ask about the balls...maybe they can resize it to a 6 and then put the balls inside. Otherwise, I may have the e-ring and the wedding band combined into one ring.
