lynanng :  sorry you have to go through this bee :(( Please let me know how your problem gets resolved. I personally will want to return the ring to something I want. Because you’re going to look at this ring for the rest of your life (unless you end up upgrading). Be happy bee. It’s all about you at this point. Yout tell them both how you feel, but be very sensitive towards your BFs feelings and his friend’s. No one wants to go through a pre-bridezilla moment. 😛

lynanng :  Yeah the crookedness of the prongs is even more apparent from that view.


Sorry bee, I can tell from the design that it would have been beautiful if properly executed, but everything just looks “off”.

I don’t even know how they can call that milgrain! Even what I would consider “heavy” milgrain looks a lot finer than that.

lynanng :  To me it looks like the jeweler bit off way more than he could chew.  It’s obvious that this type of setting is beyond his scope of skill, but he still tried to deliver what you wanted….and unfortunately fell short.  I would be upset too.  The overal design of the ring is lovely, it just wasn’t executed to its full potential at all.  I’m sorry bee!

Oh, I’m sooo sorry you’re going through this! Not to be hurtful, but if I’m honest, I wouldn’t pay .50 for that setting. It just looks incredibly poorly done. :/ I’m so sorry. Milgraining should be MUCH MUCH smaller than that, prongs are incredibly important to not losing your diamond, the RG is even a weird patina that makes it look like copper. 

I would get a full refund and go elsewhere – I wouldn’t even bother trying to get them to fix small errors. PM me if you decide to get quotes from online vendors – there are some really good artisans with excellent reputations out there who can do that setting for a reasonable price.

lynanng :  if you love the diamond, keep that and get a new setting. So sorry this is how it turned out 🙁 Definitely take care of it so you are happy with the end result.

Let me start by saying your ring is very beautiful! This leads me into saying I am just like you, a perfectionist. I had my ring re-set after I first received it because it looked crooked, if it bugs you now, let them know how you are feeling or it will keep bugging you. Please do remember (as I was told) these rings are not made by machines but rather humans. It is near impossible to get perfection lol.
