After months and months of searching I could not find a band to go with my e-ring. After talking with a few jewelers and asking for recommendations I finally went with one a friend has used in the past. He had to make a 3/4 platinum eternity band with diamonds matching the color of my e-ring stone. He said 3 to 4 weeks. He did not take a deposit and said he could tell I’d be back for it.
At two weeks I emailed and asked the status and he said a week to a week and a half. My friend stopped by the store to pick up her own ring and he told her the same thing about mine.
It’s now at 6 weeks so I emailed him last night and asked the status. He told me it was ready two weeks ago and that he had emailed me to tell me which I never got. He’s out of town right now though. He said he’d be back today and would call me today. It’s now 7:30 PM and still no call.
I’m not sure if I should go and get this ring, how reliable is this guy going to be if something doesn’t fit or a stone falls out in the future?? Should I go ahead and get it or just find yet another jeweler to have my band made? I wear a very large ring size so it’s not something the first guy can sell easily so I kinda feel bad.
