Does it really hurt or just feel uncomfortable?  Did you wear a ring on that finger before?  Maybe you are just not used to the feeling of a ring there and feel discomfort?  I remember right after getting engaged that the new ring felt very strange and uncomfortable and scratched my pinky finger, but after a few weeks I got used to the feeling.  Maybe give it more time before you do anything since it’s too late to get it fixed without incurring any cost now anyways.

thesummerangel:  My ring really botherd me at first too. It was uncomfortable when I closed my fingers together, but now I’m used to it and it doesn’t feel uncomfortable anymore. Mine isn’t knife edge though, but it’s a flat band,and the sides are thicker than regular rings.

I have the same ring and it doesn’t bother me at all – it would if it were too big though. I have a friend with the same ring too, and the knife edge bugged her so much that she changed it – she got it pounded so it was more round, if that makes sense. It looks great! I’m not sure where she got it done.

thesummerangel:  I sense your frustration in your post and I really feel for you, you just want to be able to enjoy your ring and engagement. It does sound like it’s really uncomfortable for you but I would give it a bit longer. I found it took some getting used to wearing an engagement ring and having just got married it’s taking some getting used to wearing two bands!

 

try and give it a bit longer then a thought I had is if it really doesn’t work for you you could have the diamond which you said you like reset. I know some jewellers will offset the price if you trade in your platinum so it might not be as expensive as you think. And Tiffanys keep a higher resell value so you could even probably sell the empty setting. Hope it works out for you x

I feel for you on this one being that I too found the Tiffany knife edge way too uncomfortable. My first marriage wedding set was Tiffany’s and in the end i had Tiffany’s build a new setting for the stone itself. It took several customer service reps to talk to because no one understood what my issue was at first. In the end, I found one who absolutely sympathetic and worked to help pick a new setting to match the stone. Then I sent my ring away for several months while it was reset. It took a while and some $$$ but the new band was much more comfortable. Good luck and I suggest you keep talking to various people at Tiffany’s because so many people told me it couldn’t be altered at first. I hope this helps. Feel free to PM for more info.

thesummerangel:  I’ve always worn rings too for as long as i can remember, but it still took me a while to get used to my e-ring.  Like I said, it rubbed my pinky dry and red too for a while, so if you’ve only given it a few days, I’d give it a few more weeks and see if your hands get used to it.  Good luck!

thesummerangel:  If you dont get used to it you could always have the knife edge removed between your fingers. My band is a knife edge on the top so you get the look of it, but between the fingers it’s a normal curved band so it doesn’t hurt. Any jeweler should be able to do that for a small cost, but I’m not sure if that voids any warrenty that yoou have with Tiffany’s.

thesummerangel:  the prong set setting. Similar to the channel setting actually. It was a very low easier to wear setting for me. I went with this because the knife edge was the only plain setting at the time. Although this was almost 10 years ago so maybe they have other options now. Here is a pic of the engagement ring since I still have it.

kapalua67:  that’s a great suggestion actually. It would be fairly easy to shave down the part of the ring that sits between your fingers and cost effective as well.

It’s your ring, and Tiffany isn’t in charge of what you do with it. If you want the band modified, take it to another jeweler and get the band modified. It’s not that difficult! It’s still a Tiffany ring made of platinum and diamonds, and its value will remain.
