@khaleesi It’s difficult to tell from your photo, but from what I can see your stone does NOT look symmetrically balanced. Yes, I’ve run into this problem too and it’s totally disappointing. Except not only was my stone slightly on angle, but one of the prongs on my setting was also misshapen and asymmetrical. I took it back to our jeweler, he fixed it and now my ring a perfect. Take your ring back to the jeweler ASAP. If you received the ring in this condition or the stone is loose, then it’s the jeweler’s responsibility to fix it. Congratulations on your engagement and best of luck!

My round was once in a 4 prong setting, and it was crooked. It was slight, but drove me nuts so I ended up getting it reset. 

Can you post a better pic so we can see it more?

@khaleesi:  From the picture it does look a little crooked…However I can’t give you a 100% positive answer, sorry!

It does look crooked.  But if it is secure, I would not worry for now.  When you take it to get your prongs checked I would ask them to fix it then.

Looks a little crooked but don’t feel bad! I had my ring for a month and didn’t notice the chip in the side that’s super visible! Now I have to wait a week for the diamond shipment to swap it out.. and I stared at that thing daily and it took me a month hahah.

@khaleesi:  Then I would not make a special trip.  It is hard to see, and I doubt anyone will notice that.  I would just deal with it when you do normal polishing or checks.
