Okay…so I know its been 3 months, but I finally took my ring in (to Jared) on Sunday (it was mandatory to have it inspected by today because of the whole 6 month inspection rule) Well, I ofund out that my center diamond is loose & has a chip in it (I knew about the chip, but not that it was loose)! Ughh! So he told me that in order for me to keep the warranty/insurance I had to have the center diamond replaced and that it was going to take 6 to 8 weeks!! (OMG!), so as he was copying the GIA certificate and all the other paper work I was standing there holding my ring & trying my best not to cry. I could barely get out of the door before I started balling because I knew I didn’t have my ring & that I wouldn’t have it for quite some time. I called Fiance 4 times, but he wouldn’t pick up & I needed to talk to someone so I called the next best person, my mom, and she freaked at first when she heard me sobbing but then once I told her what happened and how bad I felt because I “broke” my ring & how Fiance is going to think I’m irresponsible and be mad, she laughed(just a little though)! She did the whole mom thing where they say “Oh honey, its okay. He’s not going to be mad, things happen and its not your fault, you wear it everyday so it is okay.” –Let me just say that I love my mother, she is the best and is so good in a “crisis” like this– So when I finally told Fiance he wasn’t happy (& at first he was almost mad, but that’s because he thought he would have to pay to get it fixed, then when I told him he didn’t he was okay)

Ugh! This is wayyy longer than I intended, but I really had to tell someone that I knew would possibly understand!

Just wanted to say, from a jeweler’s perspective, I loved reading how great Jared’s was with their return policy. I’ve heard good things about them and liked your story.

Diamond, especially Princess cut diamonds can chip. Those edges are really thin and if you hit them just right a chip will happen.

You’re wearing your ring daily and you drive your car daily, chips and dings happen and your fiance shouldn’t get mad at you at all. Would he get mad at your if someone parking lot dinged your car while you were shopping? Of course not. 

Only two women I’ve ever talked to who had chipped their diamonds know when it happened. One women fell and chipped her diamond and the other had it go through the garbage disposal. Both diamonds are worn to this day. One got re-polished, the other one is worn with the chip still there.

Just thought I’d weigh in on this interesting thread.
