@lizzierose: Ugh! I really wish you’d had replies on this!! I got engaged December 3, 2010 and [no joke] like 10 days after I got my ring I noticed a small chip on the edge/side of my diamond (its a princess cut). I feel so guilty and completely terrible about it & I know it makes me seem aweful, but I have yet to tell my Fiance about it! I am terrified to tell him, it is going to hurt him so bad especially if we’d have to pay to get it fixed. He spent his entire savings on this ring (it is way more than I ever expected). We got the ring from Jared as well. Do you know anything about their warranty/insurance? How do I know it’d be covered? I think it would be so much easier to tell him if I knew for a fact it’d be fixed for little or no cost. 

This has been eating at me for so long. I know that “technically” I am lying to him, but I feel like I am doing it to avoid hurting him. (He kind of got laid offa few days after Christmas, and was on unemployment for 2 weeks before getting a job.) Then January 6th one of our dogs died & he was the one there with her when she seized in the car on the way to the vet. So it has been bad timing ever since. 

 

I know this has been an extremely long post & most of it isn’t even related to your e-ring issue, but if you know anything about Jared and how to find out if my ring is covered I’d really appreciate it!

So sorry for both of you!  I would be soo sad if my rock got chipped.  She’s my baby!

@soon to be — Don’t worry, you should be covered!  All diamonds sold by Jared have a replacement guarantee if they are chips, breaks, are lost from the setting.  You do need to have your ring inspected every six months (it’s free and they clean and re-plate it and all that jazz, too).

@lizzierose: I found an inclusion in my supposedly flawless sidestone a few weeks ago and brought it in to be replaced.  I know there’s a better diamond going in, so my concern isn’t exactly the same as yours, but I AM worried I’m going to get the ring back and they’ll have replaced the wrong stone! 

The girl taped the ring to a post-it and drew an arrow to the one that needed to be replaced and wrote “REPLACE THIS ONE” on it, but I can’t help but be paranoid.  Maybe she drew the arrow to the wrong stone?  Maybe they dropped it when they untaped it and got mixed up?  Lol – I’m pathetic.  I’ll have it back on Wednesday and can finally relax.

@bluegreenjean: Thank you! I am going to go to Jared and ask them what they can do.

@lizzierose: I’ve only had my for 2 months, so I’m not due for my inspection until May but I will definitely take it in asap!  

Thank you both! I am not as concerned about telling my Fiance now, I just have to find the right moment..hmm..

I am surprised that they didn’t let you pick a new center stone to be sure you’d be happy with it!  I would think that if you’re not pleased with the replacement diamond they’d be obligated to replace it once again.  After all, you should be the one to pick the replacement stone!!
