Is the jeweller fixing it for you at his expense?

@HappySky7:  Those spots look similar to what I had on my rings…which is the metal showing through. I’m guessing they did not dip it properly/thoroughly enough. Sorry you have to deal with this, hope you get your ring back soon!

@HappySky7:  The most obvious solution here is to shoot a fireball at them or a burning mandala!! Go Sailor Mars!

UGH just saw your update. How is it your fault if they didn’t dip it well enough??????

@HappySky7:  Aw man! At least no one saw it? But I’m afraid that I would have been silently fuming during that part of the ceremony.

@HappySky7:  wow I’m sorry! Funny how due to his Tacori affliation he gets your business, yet is not doing Tacori any justice whatsoever. Wonder if you could contact customer service at Tacori and let them know this jeweler is messing up their stuff?

@HappySky7:  Ok I can tell you exactly what happen. When a ring is redipped (Rhodiumed) they are to polish the ring, then dip it into this cleaner (its like highlighter yellow in color), then dip the ring into Rhodium, redip into the cleaner, and then steam it off. If they skip steps and put it directly into rhodium then the dirt, oil, whatever is on it has a bad reaction with the rhodium and the spots on the ring occurs. Unfortunatley, it is very difficult to fix. They would have to polish off the spots (which will take quite a long time). 

I will say that sometimes even if you do go through all of the correct steps the bad reaction can still occur however not likely. I hope you get it all worked out. Goodluck!

I know how this all works cause my Dad is a Certified Master Bench Jeweler.
