I just cant help but miss it. My fiance and i went and picked out my engagement ring. I had been looking forever, and we went to the jewelry factory (dont Go there) and we found it. It was perfect and exactly what i wanted. 2 ct. stone. th only thing was that ut was unsertified. but we felt that it was still perfect. He bought it and had it set in a band that he chose, so that there would be some sort of suprise.
A week later, hee went and picked it up, took it to a local jeweler to hav it appraised. It turned out that there were chipped stones in the band, and there were inclusions in the diamond that we were not aware of. That jewler said that the stone was really dirty and that was prob. why we could not see the flaws.
My fiance felt that he could not propose with a “flawed” ring. I am so happy that he did this. We went back to the jewelery factory and they refused to refund him the money. The only thing that we could do was trade it in for a different stone. Everything was so tiny and the coloring was awful for the amount of money that he had spent.
I was so discouraged and to the point that i didnt even want a ring anymore. He ended up selling the ring on ebay, taking a $2000 loss. and we went to Jared and bought my new ring. I love my new ring, but i cant stop thinking about the first one. It was everything that i ever wanted in theory. I am so sad that it turned out so badly.
bees i guess i am just looking for reasurement that we made the right choice.
This is my first ring….
and here in my new ring

i guess i am just a bit self concious about it because…it looks like one solid stone and people are always asking to see it then when they see it up close and realize that it is invisible set (4 stones to make up one) they are like ohh thats pretty.

The first ring always holds some significance, thats probably why you still miss it. I love your new ring, it’s so much more sparkly!

That’s too bad. If you’re ever in the market for a diamond again, do your homework! You need to protect yourself by knowing what to look for in a quality diamond so you don’t get ripped off by companies who will not be honest about the quality of their products.
You have a beautiful ring now, enjoy it!

Your new ring is gorgeous! I’m sorry you got taken on the first ring.
Hard way to learn a lesson but at least now you know if there isn’t a GIA cert or a 100% refund policy if you don’t like the independent appraisal you do not want to do business with them!
