hi ladies 🙂
Fiance and I just got back from the jeweler’s. We ended up getting store credit for the amount of the custom ring setting ($3200)! Which was great news for me and Fiance. I know some may disagree and say that the jeweler’s being unfair, and that I should pursue a credit card chargeback or small claims court, but… I just want to be done with this. I am the WORST person at being patient, and I didn’t want to deal with this jeweler any longer! A plus is now the ring that I chose looks nothing like the Tacori, so I won’t be reminded of this fiasco whenever I look down at it 🙂
So I went with Ring #3 –
It has a halo very similar (in person, maybe not so much in that picture..) to the “bloom” halo that the Tacori had, and I like its classic simplicity! I also had enough store credit left over to pretty much buy my eternity wedding band. Both are ordered and should be here in 4 weeks! I am hoping nothing else goes wrong between then and now. I’m glad to (almost) be done with this.. and have a ring I can finally wear and “feel” more engaged (again, just a personal preference).
I am a little sad that I won’t get to show off my ring when I go home for the holidays, but it could be much worse. Oh – and just wanted to add, the jeweler said “we wanted to remake it for you for free, but knowing you and your INTENSE attention to detail, you wouldn’t be happy anyway.” Uh, attention to detail? The rings were night and day! Whatever.. haha.
So, hope thats the end to this ordeal. Thanks for all the support ladies!!

Glad to hear it’s all (hopefully) worked out! I followed this from the beginning so I’m glad you’re happy and have come to a resolution! Can’t wait to see the new ring ‘in person’.

I still can’t believe how that jeweler is still in business with that attitude, but I am happy this is finally settled for you! I love the ring you chose, I think it will look so much better than the bulkier custom one.

That was a bit ridiculous for him to say to you, BUT I’m so glad you picked a new ring that you love and it’ll be on your finger in less than a month!! PS, I voted for that ring in your last thread! Good choice 😉

Intense attention to detail? Did you punch him in the face? Please, tell me you did. It’s a CUSTOM JOB. You’re paying him to pay attention to details. AHHHHH
Anyways. So happy you finally have that all behind you and I love that you chose that style. It’s absolutely gorgeous (and I may have voted for it )
