I would check into their return policy, and have it checked by a jeweler.  To my knowledge, no one has mentioned the settings in their complaints on here…so I can’t say for sure.  Out of curiosity, which setting was it?  I’ve seen a few of their designs in other places.  And if it has side stones (especially small ones like pave) you might run into issues.

Also, check on the better than diamond boards, I think I’ve seen people with DNL rings there.  They were unhappy about the stones, but I can’t say for the bands.  I’ve often wondered this myself to be honest.

I have the tiffany style solitare from there. My only complaints are
1) easily scratched (to be fair I rocked climbed with it on so kinda totally my fault)
2) the prongs are sharp as heck
3) other then that is comfy and shiny , also the stones are beautiful regardless of wether or not they are real

I think my concern would be replacing the small stones, or rather if it could be done and if it would be cost effective, a jeweler would know better.  It seems like that design could be a hassle for jewelers to work around, but I could be wrong.  It does seem like a high amount of money to pay for just a setting, I would talk to a local jeweler and see what they say.  They may be able to build you a ring like this for MUCH less.  It’s worth a talking to, at least.

I have several DNL rings..  you can see the pictures here via FACEBOOK


My major complaint w/ DNL is the quality of their stones..  Unless you are going w/ their PETITE collection..  the gold setting/mounting are pretty durable & much sturdier than the typical jewerly story mounting.. 

They used to replace lost/loose stones for free..  but lately, they started to charge shipping/service for the repairs..

I encountered so many issues w/ their stones that I have paid for an independant lab test..  loose stone purchased by the LAB company..  which turned out to be CZ.

If at a later date, you decide to replace the center stone w/ something else..  by anyone other than DNL touch/alter the setting/stone..  VOIDS their warranty !!

It is my understanding that that micro-set stones are also CZ..

& yes, I have also thought of keeping my DNL pieces due to the fact that they were purchased several yrs ago & the price of gold have gone up so much..  & possibly replace the center stones..

It is my understanding that CZ are heat sensitive, prone to scratching, pourous & tend to attract oils/dirt more…

So the choice is still yours…  I recently wore my DNL rings out & though after knowing the secret truth behind the stones/company..   DNL rings/earring/bracelet/pendants/etc just don’t sparkle/shine as much for me anymore…  I clean mine daily to bring out the fire..   Those who see my rings love the setting/sparkle of the stone & can’t believe it is fake..  (But knowing truth just KILLS the joy/excitement/love for the pieces I spent so much time picking/dreaming of)…

To me..  it’s like finding out that your husband had sex w/ someone else years ago..  that doesn’t take away the love/history you shared..  but it does tarnish the memories/thoughts of him..  (just a mere example !!)
