To a conditionally convergent series $\sum_{n\geq 1}v_n$ in $\mathbb{R^d}$ \mathbb{R}^d$one can attach so called convergence functionals$f$, which are linear functionals$f:\mathbb{R^d}\to\mathbb{R}$f:\mathbb{R}^d\to\mathbb{R}$ with the property $\sum_{n=1}^{\infty}|f(v_n)|<\infty$. Let $\Gamma ((v_n))$ be the set of all these functionals. Then the set of values of the possible rearrangements of the series $\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}v_n$ is exactly the affine space $\sum_{n=0}^{\infty}v_n + \Gamma ((v_n))_0$, where $\Gamma ((v_n))_0$ denotes the annihilator of $\Gamma ((v_n))$, i.e. $\bigcap_{f\in\Gamma ((v_n))}\mathrm{ker}(f)$. This is precisely the Steinitz Theorem mentioned by KConrad. Let me just add that this result does not hold in general for infinite-dimensional spaces. However, a genarilization generalization of Steinitz theorem seems very approachable for locally convex spaces -> see e.g. "The Steinitz theorem on rearrangement of series for nuclear spaces" by W. Banaszczyk (1990), in Journal für die reine und angewandte Mathematik 403, 187-200.

EDIT: added the condition on $v_n$ per KConrad´s comment.
