Ugh! I got married two months ago and got a thin rose gold band. I just noticed that it has a thin hairline crack in it that wasn’t there before. It hasn’t gone all the way through the band but ugh! it hasn’t even been two months.
I just sent a note to the lady who made it on etsy. Hopefully she has a solutions and it works out but does anyone else have any suggestions.

Oh no! I hope that you can get it fixed or get a replacement!

I hope I don’t have to get a replacement. It just feels sentimental that we got it on our wedding day. Ugh, maybe I’ll turn it into something else if it doesn’t work out, grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.

That sucks. Sorry to hear that. I would take it to a local jeweler and see if he/she can’t mend the crack, but that’s because I don’t want to ship any of my sentimental rings out away from me.

I got a crack on my band once and it needed a new shank once and yes, it meant a replacement. If she welds it, it may just continue to crack. Welding never fully repairs the metal to its original strength

Make sure you do not get chlorine around your gold. I noticed the same thing happened to my mom’s. Her diamond was barely hanging in there. The jeweler asked if she had been swimming a lot or spending time in the hot tub. My family had just gotten a hot tub and I guess soaking in the chlorine is REALLY bad and eats away at the gold.

Thanks for the info about chlorine. I work with it but always with gloves on so I don’t know if that could still be it.
The lady emailed back and said she’d fix it, yay. I’ll have to wear a fake for a bit I guess.

Oh no! That’s sad! At least she is willing to fix it -that’s very good!!
