Is it something that you are doing? Like grabbing your keys or something?

I think you should definitely go back to Tiffany and speak to someone in a management position. From what I know and have experienced with the store they are a classy joint and take customer service very seriously.

The only way you can expect a ring to not get scratches on it is to keep it in the box. You saw them buff the scratches out, decided it was perfect enough and left. Normal wear and tear means the ring is going to get banged up during everyday activities. Sorry if this sounds mean, but I’m not really sure what you expect them to do about it.

It sounds like you must have been doing something with the ring that’s scratching it. Any metals get scratched, but some hold up better than others, so you may want to try an alternative.

I don’t think there’s any way around getting some tiny scratches here and there. I’d love it if my ring looked the way it did every time the jeweler buffed it, but sadly with normal wear and tear that’s not going to happen.

They’ll replace the entire band if you keep having this problem.

@cc_NYC:  And you can’t think of anything that you touch/grab that could leave such a marking? For them to be parallel instead of haphazardly placed makes me think it’s a specific object. I know next to nothing about metal hardness, but the first thing that came to mind was a coin. But I have absolutely no idea how you’d have to grab one (or what it’d have to be made of) for the edges to leave their lines on your ring. But, really, that seems quite unlikely. Maybe you need a more durable metal. 

Also, if you hit “reply” under a post, it adds the @ for you and makes it a link to the post you’re replying to.

Just pop back in. Mine is from there and they are always willing to clean it/have a chat about it. That said, my band does get some small scratches – it’s just normal wear and tear!

@cc_NYC:  I wonder if it was a mark made when you had your ring in to be re-sized? something that might have come fom a clamp being on it too tight or what not…..

Well the scratches couldn’t have just magically reappeared. There must be something that scratched it. All you can do is try and retrace every movement you made between Tiffany’s and the car to try and figure it out.

I have a platinum half eternity wedding band that I wear as a RHR and the bottom gets scratched A LOT. I think I can go about half a day before it gets scratched up again after being buffed and polished. I bang my hand around a lot, from my steering wheel to my desk at work. Nothing you would think would cause it to scratch, but I have a lot of scratches.
