This is the update I posted on the other thread –
So heres a half-update.
Fi called the Jeweler (i’m just going to call him J now, that word is a pain to type). Apparently he said he finally understood what I wanted even though the FIRST TIME he said he totally understood and took detailed notes (ie “halo under center stone”). He said to fix it would cost 600-700 dollars.
Okay, now before you guys all kill me, I think I would be willing to shell out 600-700 bucks to put this behind me. I know in principle it isnt right since he screwed up, and all that but.. I kind of just want to get it over with and have my ring, and not think about this ever again. And though it is a chunk of money.. I don’t know. I would do it, though. Now he changed his answer to “well you approved the wax” – which is a more legit reason to me than “its the same”. I understand hes being a dick, but moving on…
However! How can I be sure that he will get it right this time? He sounded like he knew what I wanted the first time, and was very convincing. I dont want to pay 600-700 and then be stuck in the same spot I am now. I need some sort of guarantee that this time, it will be done and okay. So I told Fiance all this, and he said he would call him back sometime soon. He is very busy at work, then J is busy today after 5 and then all of tomorrow. So.. I hope he gets to call him back today.
Well, thats that. Be back with another update when Fi calls him back again!”
So Fiance called him again and discussed our concerns about how if we pay this money, we want to be sure that this is the RIGHT one this time. He said that they could make a silver mold instead of a wax one, but we still expressed our concerns that it would not be a good enough image of the real ring. He said the silver would still be “thicker” like the wax one.. so the only real benefit would be it looks more ring-like due to the color.
J said they couldnt do a CAD model (for whatever reason). J said he would ask the designer if there was any way to make a model so it would be more clear and we wouldn’t run into this problem again, and would call us back in a day or two to relay the message. I just want to make sure that this doesn’t happen again…
When they call back in 1-2 days, I want to make it clear that if they screw up the mold again, I’m not paying another 600-700 for them to fix their mistake. I don’t know if they’ll go for that though..
