My fiance let me design a beautiful engagement ring and proposed on Christmas Eve 2012. It’s been 5 months, and I’ve been back to the jeweler 5 times for loose stones, chipped stones and cracked stones. All my trips back have been since April 23 when I first noticed a problem. Before then, I didn’t check my ring because I trusted everything was okay … you know, seeing how it was custom made by a (so called) good local jeweler. Now, I’m checking my ring at least once a week to make sure everything’s tight.
I love my ring, but I’m tired of going to the jeweler every other week to leave it for a week to be fixed, especially when I’m moving 3 hours away after the wedding. And, I don’t see the point in having an engagement ring if every time I wear it, a stone comes loose or cracks. My jeweler said I should be able to wear it every day for anything without any problems.
I’m tired of going back to this guy just to have the same problems happen repeatedly. And the jeweler has a no-refund policy, so I don’t know what to do at this point. Any suggestions?
Oh, and edit: I’m posting here because y’all usually have really good suggestions, and if I bring this up to my fiance again, he’s going to flip. I need to figure out how to remedy this then talk to the fiance. ::sigh::
