I have a friend who is a jewler, in fact he created my ring for me.  I know he’s been a bit busy lately but I have to contact him about making Mr S’s ring anyway, when I reach him I’ll ask him about it.

On a note, just as a consumer – I’d contact him right away and tell him what you found out. Try to discuss things with him in a decent manner. Explain whats going on, maybe try to get in writing the information you got from the second jeweler for proof. Maybe it woulnd’t hurt to get more then one other jeweler to contest to it in writing.

I’d call the BBB if he refuses to refund you or at least re-do your ring at his own cost. Maybe the police and file a report?? Well okay the second one may get you no where….

I’ll let you know if I find anything out.

You may want to take your ring to a professional appriaser and get the flaws documented so that you have proof. If you live in the so cal area I can recommend someone for you.

I am so sorry about your ring, and hope it works out for you to have it replaced.  I don’t really understand the problem from a technical standpoint, but I do have a good friend whose custom setting actually broke because of (apparently) porosity issues.  We came pretty close to ordering my ring from the same jeweler, but ended up liking the service better somewhere else.  So I gather it’s not a rare issue.
