I need some HELP! I was given a man’s ring with a 1.25 ct. round
diamond set in a 14 kt White gold gypsy mounting with 3 small
diamonds approx. 5 pts. each pave set down each side. The ring is
rather thick and is a size 6 ?. It needs to be sized to a 10 ? .The
ring has never been sized before and is a family heirloom. I am
afraid that if I up size it to a 10 ? the pressure might cause the
diamond to crack. I thought about removing the diamond to size it,
but am afraid it will harm the mounting The stone is set approx. ?
mm below the top of the ring. Does anybody have any suggestions or
techniques on how best to size this ring.
Thanks in advance for any help with this.
