    @loving_life:  Can you keep the one you currently have while they make the correct size for you? Honestly, I’d just take a new ring if possible, and get a stand in meanwhile.

    Wait, is that grayish dot the stone? That doesnt match at all – you should demand they fix it.

    @loving_life:  I think that’s a good solution! Getting the ring made in the correct size will mean the melee stones should be set more securely anyway.

    @loving_life I feel for you! This happened to me with my promise ring from Fred Meyer jeweler. when I got it back I noticed the stone was very cloudy, like it had a film over it, when I asked the manager she reluctantly told me that when they repair paves they don’t go by clarity and because the prongs on my ring are so small it was probably super glued!! My husband and I were shocked, they offered to repair it again but I was afraid that it would only get worse so we didn’t. If you have the option to get your set sized up I would go for it and look for a stand in for a while. It will be worth it to be without your set for a bit and to have a fresh set with all matching stones. Good luck!!

    I originally voted to have it replaced, but I think I was a bit confused and am clarified since reading some of the comments. You can definitely tell it isn’t right and no you do not need to ignore it and get over it. I can’t believe they would give you something like that! If you need it sized up anyway I would go ahead with the new setting. Good luck!

    I cracked a diamond in my halo and used my insurance to replace it.  They matched the color (pretty close) and the clarity of my other stones.  Either way I can’t tell the difference.  

    If I was you I’d go back to the store to point out the mistake but I’d have them make a new setting in a larger size.

    that grey dot is the stone?

    wow that looks like a way lower quality diamond, i would walk in there and demand thet fix it with the correct diamond that is not what you paid for when you got that ring!
