Just tell him – the heirloom ring is in your family, you should get to choose what happens to it.

Shady Family Jeweller… rings a bell for me, believe you have posted about him before eh?

I hope you trust your BF more than 100%, because, I’d be very concerned that he went against your wishes and took this family heirloom there.

And YES I’d be insisting that he return the Heirloom Ring intact IMMEDIATELY !!

You have said, you don’t trust this Jeweller, and BF knows that… so WHY would he want to deal with him… hmmm, unless he is cahoots with the Jeweller too

I hate to say that, but it did come to mind while reading your posting (honestly, since reading your other post, I’ve got to say this almost has the feel of a set-up sting against you IMO)

The .80 stone that is in the family heirloom ring is valued at aprox $ 4,000 that is a valuable rock… I’d sure hate to see it go missing on you.  I strongly suggest that when you get the family ring back, you go out and have it appraised by an Independent Appraiser.  You NEED to know if there has been any monkey business done to that ring / stone… and IF YES, then you need to be ready to push that issue / press charges.

I think you should go get the ring yourself. Or tell your boyfriend that you want the ring back and you don’t feel comfortable with the guy dealing with it.

I would never have let him do this!  I have an heirloom setting which was missing the diamond and I was really vocal about what I wanted him to do with it.  He guarded it well the whole time it was in his possesion.  Most of the prongs were actually damaged on it when we got it and we weren’t sure it could be repaired but I told him that if he could get it fixed that he should under no circumstances surrender it.  No taking it anywhere were they would hold on to it for days. He was lucky enough get the diamond to put into it at a place that they could also fix the prongs on site, and he could see them the whole time.  

This setting its only worth 1000 or so monetarily but its worth the world to me sentimentally, your diamond is worth 4 times that along with the sentimental value.  I would talk to him about it because this should not be okay.  You were okay with the small stones and he wasn’t. You offered him the diamond you should get to dictate what happens to it.  You mentioned it was appraised, is it insured?  That would at least give you piece of mind in case it gets swtiched out.  But honestly I would really have a talk with this guy.  He should be respecting you wishes on this.  If the situation was reversed do you think he would be okay with this?
