I’m wondering if it would be possible to size down a 5 stone platinum ring from a 7.5 to a 6.5. It is 2 carat total with 5 .4 carat stones. They are prong set fairly low. I’m sure there’s a limit to sizing without hurting the stability of the setting but not sure what the rule of thumb is. Sorry I have no pictures!

It seems a lot to me, but you really need to take it to a competent jeweler so they can inspect the ring to see how much they can do.

Thank you for your replies. I saw the ring while out of town but it is similar to this image but each stone has four prongs instead of shared prongs 8A8852D5-FC71-4F46-BA91-35630834ADAA.png

Yes the image is from IDJ I found while looking for something similar. The ring I looked at was in an antique store. It is not an antique but does have some age to it.

One size up or down is typically not problematic.
