Glad to see a bad story end well. Also, I think that you should say which jeweler it is, as this could be helpful to bees in the future in terms of both quality of product and quality of customer service/resolution of issues.

stephadele:  Oh my goodness! My heart dropped when I read about you losing your center diamond. I can’t even imagine how heartbreaking this would be. It’s something I am super paranoid about with my new set. I didn’t think much about it with my original ERing, mainly because I was a lot younger back then. I guess it never occurred to me that it could happen — LOL. But, I was taking a picture of my original ring a few days ago, and it fell onto the table where I was photographing. I am pretty sure my center stone cracked. Even though it only fell a short distance, I guess it hit just right on the girdle or something. I still feel heartbroken over it as I’m sitting here typing this. I put it away in my jewelry box and can’t even bring myself to look at it to confirm if it’s cracked or not. I know — totally wimpy of me.

Anyhow, when I read about your wonderfully generous grandmother and how fantastic the online dealer has been in working with your FI, I felt so so happy for you! I am thrilled that everything worked out in such a fantastic way. I hope you’ll take tons of pictures of your new ring when you get it!

That’s awesome that it all worked out…I know it’s probably been so disheartening dealing with this situation in the first place. You’re grandmother is so incredibly generous! Who was your ring ensured under? (just curious why they would only cover half the cost of the diamond)

What a nice ending!  You’ll get a setting that you like more and none of it can be blamed on you not liking the first one.  And your new diamond will have more meaning as it is a family stone.  Personally though, I would not want this online jeweler (so curious to know which one it is) to set the new stone, just because of the shoddy work they did on the last one.  Why don’t you have a local jeweler with a good reputation set your grandmother’s stone in your new setting?

Yes I also want to know who your ring was insured with.  It seems odd they would only cover half of the center stone.  Unless there was some sort of large deductable that made it come out to only that much after it was paid.
