Depends on size of stone,as a diamond setter we find fastest way (and safest) is to use a cotton reel and a nail bluntened and tap under side into the cavity of the reel.

There is probably no way for you to remove the stone without chipping the stone. You would be best to take it to a jeweler and have it removed. If the stone was prong mounted, you might have a chance, but I would think that the stone is mounted in a very solid mount. Being a mans ring, it is probably crimped in, which requires that the stone actually be cut or ground out of the ring with a burr or a jewelers saw.
