I still haven’t uploaded pics of my engagement ring yet, because it appears you can’t do it over mobile.
anyway, whilst taking pics and studying it today, I have noticed that the prongs are unsymmetrical and some are ever so slightly shorter. Also the diamond slants ever so slightly to the left.
I was contemplating taking it back to the jeweller, but realistically is there anything they would do? The stone is solid and prongs don’t wobble, but i want it to be perfect…
its a .6 carat old european cut diamond, set in an 18 karat white gold with six prongs.
help! Thanks. Xox

I imagine they could fix that without a problem if it bothers you! It can’t hurt to drop by and ask, right?
Also, it can’t hurt if you post a picture of your ring 😉 I’m not a jeweller, I just love looking at rings and OECs are sooo pretty!

I would also just stop by the jeweller’s to have them take a good look at it. I’d imagine a diamond set on a slant isn’t ideal and that could be why the prongs aren’t matching either. I would think that should be an easy fix, but I’d definitely want the professionals to check it out.

I don’t mean to sound harsh but these inconsistencies of the setting is quite unacceptable to me (=ﾟωﾟ)ﾉ
If the craftsmanship of the setting has issues like that, if it were me, I would return the ring and get it done elsewhere.

That’s guys. I don’t really want to return it because it’s my engagament ring FI proposed with. I’ll go in tomorrow and see what they say. Wish me luck!

The fact is that when you purchase something new (jewelry, car, home) you do expct the craftmanship to be better. Prong issues can eventually lead to the stone falling out, then you’ll really be upset! It sounds like sosmeone id a crappy setting job, especially if the prongs are all different and the stone is slightly tilting…sounds like a rush job. So, I would def take it back and explain to them that you would like it to be set properly with the prongs re-done. Hopefully they’ll fix it for you.
