@funkybutton:  What a beautiful ring!  But what a bummer that your jeweler is trying to take advantage of you!  You need to put on your game face and go down there and demand them to make things right!  They owe you the stone you picked out.  But seriously, gorgeous ring.  Here’s a big “CONGRATS!!” from the Bee since you aren’t hearing it in real time!

@funkybutton:  Gorgeous setting!! So sorry about the stone situation. I sort of feel like you should return it and try your luck with a different store. It’s a huge purchase, and if you’re uncomfortable for any reason, walk away! I can’t believe they would do something like this, so shady!! 

Buy somewhere else! But a giant congratulations!! Wishing you the best of luck!! 🙂

I would return it and get the same one somewhere else and maybe with a return looming ovr their heads they will fix the issue… It’s truly a beautiful ring tho

Pull up your paperwork if you got any. Most of my engaged friends got paperwork with their rings. At the time that you bought the stone it should have included paperwork that showed where inclusions were if any, the weight, the clarity, the cut, sometimes even the millimeters. That should be enough for you to get them to seriously fix the issue. I had a friend that after getting her ring back, her diamond had a crack in it. She was able to pull up the paperwork, she got a full refund, and went to another jeweller. I hope it works out for you!

Return it, don’t give any money to such a shady store. If you’re willing to buy online, go with God Old Gold. They sell Tacori, and I they will make a video of the diamonds you’re considering.

I second asbtoabs’ recommendation of Good Old Gold, they’re a very reputable store that has great recommendations on the diamond forum site Pricescope. There’s no way I’d be able to work with that same jeweler again. Just imagine if they switched it with a dimond with the same clarity, but maybe a lower color like an H or I. It’d be much harder to spot the differences, but the price value would be a lot lower.

Best of luck, and congrats!

@funkybutton:  Wow that is an incredibly horrible story! What a nightmare! And I was feeling bad about my ring being repaired because it was uneven. I outsourced my center stone and I’m glad that I did. I have heard horrible stories like this and a lot of times it’s actually an honest mistake. But come on, if your job is to put together a ring, I think you should be extra careful and triple check everything (at least). If you are able to get a full refund and not a store credit. I would suggest do that and go with someone else.
