Would you resize a 5-stone shared prong band up by 2 sizes?

    Hi, I’m considering buying a preowned band that is 2 sizes too small for my finger. It’s a 7, I feel most comfortable in a size 9. Too risky, or OK to resize it? Thanks!

    I would ask the seller to check with their jeweler if it's a private sale. Is the band just a smooth shank? If it's just a solid shank, I think you may be fine.

    I definitely would not. That's too big a re-size. It could impact the integrity of the prongs holding the diamonds.

    what I would do is send a picture to your jeweler to determine if resize is possible. I have done this many times,with good success, My jeweler would also tightened my stones, If it was loose. He was honest about it if he couldn't, and before I committed to buying.

    If you are buying this from Ebay or another resale channel and they are a jeweler themselves, please ask them for some reassurance or warranty. I had one seller, resized it and while the resized fit perfectly, the stones were loose. I had to go to my local jeweler to get my stones tightened, and they gave me a slight refund. however still cost me more at my local jeweler but I love the band.

    :confused: Thanks everyone for your thoughtful responses. I didn’t see your comments until now for some strange reason. I decided not to get the band.
