First, your face is awesome in your proposal picture.

Second, I’m a little confused. Was your FH checking on the status of the wax design? I had a right hand ring made and I had to put down a small deposit they gave me a ticket with an estimated date on it which was only a few weeks out (3 I think?). They actually called me before that day and asked me to come in to approve. Once I did that I had to pay the remaining deposit which was half the total ring price. The entire process took less than 3 months but they were keeping in contact with me. If they hadn’t I would have been calling them. I’m confused how 3 months wend by with nothing.

First, I’m so sorry for your loss.  While I know you can never get that time back, I have no doubt your father knew of your FI’s intentions and likely considered him to be his future son-in-law, regardless of being able to share the excitement of the wedding and engagement.

Regarding the jewelry store:  It could have been an honest mistake (losing it) and I’m wondering if your Fiance had told them any deadline dates when he put the deposit down in Sept 2010.  I wouldn’t necessarily blame your youth as a reason why they’d take advantage of the situation and would hope they profusely apologized for their mistake.  If there was no promised date, I don’t see the timing an issue (why they waited so long).  They didn’t know your timeline (unless, of course, they did).  But, I would also expect them to understand why you’d want to take your business elsewhere and give you back your deposit.  Was there anything in a receipt of agreement of any sort?

Also – a very heartfelt congratulations on your engagement!! 🙂

I’m sorry to hear about your Papa.  I think you have a right to be sad and upset that you didn’t get to share your engagment with someone who clearly meant a lot to you.  It sounds like the jewlery hasn’t done a great job but you do have to separate not being able to share the engagment with your papa and the jewlry stores delay.   Emotions run high after something like that.  You need to be able to have a calm but firm conversation with the jewlery store and get them to get your deposit back or make the ring in a timely manner but I wouldn’t bring up anything about your papa with them.  It will just make it worse unfortunately.  Life is just crazy sometimes to give you sadness and then right after something to celebrate.   Congrats on your engagment though!

@hope  honestly I don’t know.  I mean it might not hurt to at least ask about a discount for all the problems.  As long as your professional about it I figure why not.  So they say no, you just move forward from their.  Save money when you can.

I dunno.  They should have told him sooner that they lost the sketch, but being busy with other stuff, and possibly hoping they would find it, I can see how it would have easily taken three months.  If he would have called once just to check the status, he would have found out sooner.  And then they did tell him and he didn’t act on it (understandably, given the family situation- but they are not to blame for that).  I would think, if they had good customer service, they might give you some kind of discount, but I don’t think its so egrarious an oversight that you will definitely get one.
