Everything is possible. In most cases this isn't very difficult but it will depend on the details of the ring and the way the stone is mounted. Show it to a bench jeweler and they should have no difficulty both telling you both the limits of what will fit in your setting without a major retrofit as well as estimating what it will cost.

 

Years ago I worked on the bench in a fairly busy shop and our sales people would regularly come back into the shop with the question "What's the biggest diamond that you can fit into this mounting?" The answer was almost always "What's the biggest diamond you can sell?" Go back and sell a 3 carat. We'll work it out, even if we need to make a whole new setting.
