xjsbellamias13 :  Wow if that was the original CAD I honestly don’t know how the ring turned out looking like a tiffany replica! The two CADs look very very similar. The CAD looks like how it is meant to though. Let us know how it goes, if it still isn’t right maybe try somewhere else! Tiffany just brought out a rose gold setting so I’m sure she will make money off the ring design/replica she created for you so no harm done on her end really….

xjsbellamias13 :  don’t feel bad moving on to a new jeweler! just say you appreciate how much they tried and that their service had been wonderful, but it just seems like they are unable to translate your vision into a product. and that’s ok. just don’t settle! you can always go to that jeweler for other things if you like them that much. if they are a good jeweler they should be understanding in this. πŸ™‚

If the first CAD resulted in a wrong ring, so will the second bc they look identical! If anything, the second CAD looks bulkier! I agree with nifer317 : respectfully decline and find someone else

The cad looks like what you want, right? I would tell the jeweler that you’re happy with the cad, but you’re nervous because the first ring she created turned out completely different from the cad you were shown. Or just try another jeweler. I’m sorry you’re having such a rough time, bee!

xjsbellamias13 :  I would ask for my diamond back and go elsewhere. Of course they will charge you for the work/cad’s etc they already did. So don’t plan on getting all your money back. Not gonna lie, that setting looks like a stock setting you could buy somewhere. I would pursue that (original older style tiffany replica) instead of going “custom”. You would save a bunch of money. good luck bee!

xjsbellamias13 :  baunie (who posted some pics here: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/want-to-see-your-6-prong-setting/page/3#post-10327138) has a setting that looks kinda like the one you’re after! It might be worth asking her where she got her ring. Hope things work out! I’m having a ring custom made now too so I totally understand the frustration!! I wouldn’t feel guilty about trying to find another jeweler if it seems like this one won’t get you exactly what you want.

Looks like  made you the classic Tiffany solitaire. Which I just happen to love. But you’re right, it’s not the same. 

Oh sorry, just saw your update! The second CAD looks much closer. But I can see why you’d want to switch jewelers after the mistakes. The original is gorgeous! Good luck.
