In Aug I had to send my e-ring to the manufactuerer to fix the matching band because they effed it up so bad that the gold smith said he couldn’t fix it. I’ve been patiently waiting for my e-ring to return and fighting off feeling like a crazy lady. When we passed the 8 week mark, i went in and asked them to get me a new time estimate. At this point, i found out that they couldn’t find the paperwork and l started freaking out even more, but they said they’d call their HO and get back to me.
Well, yesterday they got back to me, and casually mentioned how they think the reason it took so long was because they decided to recast both the band and the e-ring to make them match. Hearing this caused me to LOSE it. (Bursting into tears in my office at work) The lady then sort of backtracked and said she’s not sure if they actually did or not, she just thinks they might have.
I LOVED my ring and it was perfect. When I dropped it off, i specifically asked if they would do anything to it because i didn’t want them to change a thing. They assured me it would not be touched/altered in anyway. My ring has a euro shank square bottom and it was the perfect width and length. The lenght on the band however was too long and didn’t fit well. So hearing that they *might* have recast it terrifies me. What if they matched the ring to the band? What if the lotus flower detail in the setting itsn’t as fine anymore? I’m going crazy because i just don’t know.
I feel like if they had to recast it, they should have let me know. I feel like my ring was violated.
I think the worst part of this, that i can’t share with Fiance, is that i didn’t even really want the matching band. I wanted a simple plane gold band. No frills, no nothing. But he was sooooo insistant that i had to get the matching one to make sure the detail wouldn’t be ruined with a band rubbing it that i agreed. And now if they’ve ruined my ring for a band i didn’t even really want, it might drive me crazy forever!
And the worst worst worst part? They might not have done anything bad at all but the lady made some off hand comment and i just don’t know and won’t know for another few weeks.
I just needed to vent about this a little, so thanks.
But if any bee’s out there have great stories/pics about having your e-rings recast, please let me know so i can feel better.
