@perlerose:  And are you going to share said 3D picture?!

You could email back saying something like “I appreciate the effort you took to put your own spin on the ring design, however my partner and I have our hearts set on the designs we sent through originally. Our budget is also quite strict and unfortunately your quote does not fit within our limit. If you do offer rings that are within our budget and interest then we would love to see such designs, however unfortunately we may have to look into importing a ring from overseas if our budget cannot be met.”

That’s just a rough idea but it could be a start? 

I’m still really keen on seeing this deisgn!!! 😉

@perlerose:  Hmm she sure did make a big adjustment to your favourite (and one of mine) ring! A wedding band couldn’t sit flush against that design. If the centre stone was lifted up a bit and the fleur de lys elevated and elongated it would look a lot better IMO. But if she’s quoting that much money I’d probably recommend to steer clear.

It looks like she took the ring you like and just made the stone area in the middle squished down is all… i see no twists on it.. try 25karats.com. they have custom, will do a free quote too. And they listen to exactly what you want. And great prices!!

If you don’t like it and are afraid of confronting her, say nothing. It took her 5 minutes or less to put this together. If she calls, tell her you are still thinking about it. No need to tell her you are moving overseas to get away from the hideousness of it all. lol

Haha- I’m all for going for the tactic of saying- thanks for making it! I have to talk with my FI/SO about it before I make a decision.

THEN I would go on your merry way of finding other people. When you’ve got one set, just email her back and say that you no longer need her services.

If she asks why- you can be like 1) the style wasn’t what I was looking for 2) price was too high. Otherwise, I don’t feel like you absolutely need to tell her its hiddy ahahahaha

I think she’s probably over responding to your request it be set lower. That and the center stone does look a bit smaller. I’d simply reply that you’ve changed your mind about the basket and want it set higher like the inspiration photo. Also mention maybe that you’ve been looking at different center stones yourself and ask if its alright you provide one. 

Is the jeweler difficult to deal with or are you afraid of offending her?
