Oh man. That’s heartbreaking. I am so sorry. It’s absolutely not your fault.

I’m so sorry 🙁

I hope that the replacement is up to snuff. Maybe your fiance can re-propose with the new ring? Just as a symbolic gesture since you have such a sentimental attachment to it because he proposed with it. Obviously it won’t be the same, but it might help you get over the mental block of it?

I can understand why you’re upset, and I’m sorry. You seem to have incredibly bad luck with jewelers.

@CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon:  You are really having such a hard time with these rings! I don’t have any advice.. but I just want to say that you have really been amazing going through all of this. I would have been all fire and brimstone in that store, shrieking about how many things they’ve screwed up.

I’m just so upset for you. This all isn’t fair. It just isn’t…

Stay strong dear, hopefully it’ll be over soon and you’ll have a ring that is practically IDENTICAL with this one and that stupid relative WON’T wear jeans to your wedding! (and if he does I’ll show up in my fancy jean gown and kick his ass). You’re only about 3 hours away from Augusta!

@CreatureFromTheBlackLagoon:  Wow that really sucks, I’m so sorry. Honestly fron all the trouble they made you go through they could ATLEAST upgrade a stone or give you something for FREE at the VERY least.

I get why you are upset, but couldn’t you have just worn that side facing you so noone saw it, and with your band next to it, none would ever know (not that that would remedy the fact they messed up your ring). Or couldn’t they use the same stones, so it would at least be some of your original ring?

@ieatunicorns:  Being someone with OCD and GAD (I think OP also has this) I couldn’t wear it like that, knowing it was not perfect/how it should be.  I have this small scratch on my car and I think about it ALL THE TIME and cannot wait for my appointment to get it fixed.  

Small stuff like that would literally drive me insane to the point I wouldn’t be able to sleep.  Oi!

@ieatunicorns:  The jeweler screwed up her ring. She shouldn’t have to live with/wear it in that condition, and she’ll always be aware of the fact that it isn’t the way it used to be.
