UGH.  I’m sorry your custom project did not work at the first try.  All I can say is both my niece and I went the custom route and hers was a nightmare and mine has been a success so far (ring still being made but I have bn able to see it and it’s everything I wanted so far).  Now my niece is working with my jeweler and things are going well.  It is a matter of finding a good jeweler who CAN do real custom work.  And that can be tough, but not impossible… 

As for the payment, I think the tricky part will be establishing what your fiance told him and they agreed on.  But I’d try to talk to the jeweler and say that is not what you wanted, that it looks nothing like what you asked for. And that no, you want no stones on the sides, just like the picture has no stones.  

Just wanted to say, if you really want that style of ring, don’t give up on going the custom route. There are plenty of good jewelers out there that can make a piece like you want.

I thought they always showed you a CAD image of the design before casting? Since he did not get full approval and went ahead on his own interpretation I would say no you should not have to pay. And he is pushing for his idea and now saying yours cannot work? Well it worked in the ring u showrd him! Stand your ground if u r not happy and get what u want – probably elsewhere. Good luck!
