I’d just tell him that you’ve changed your mind and get something done elsewhere.

Hopefully you can get your ring back. I’m having a setting custom made but having my stone set in it locally so that I don’t have to be without my ring for any amount of time.

Wow!!! I’m not sure what to recommend….

The person who is a mutual friend, has he/she heard from him?

Frankly, if it were me, I would do whatever it took to get my ring back from him and use someone else. Flakiness is a BIG deal with me and I couldn’t deal with it in the long run, especially for something that is going to cost that much money.

Good luck with whatever you decide….

Not a good business practice to not get back with your customers. I would go retrieve my ring, and take it somewhere else.

Yeah, I would drop by and ask for it back. Politely explain that it’s been two months, that you’re frustrated that you haven’t heard from him, and that you’ll take your business elsewhere. Just be direct but frank.

I would just go there and ask to see the ring. If he hasn’t done any work on it, I don’t see why you should pay him anything. If he hasn’t started on it, I would just take it back and say see ya.

@ejs4y8: I think that’s a good approach because if you call him ahead of time it gives him time to rough something together and look like he’s worked on it if he really hasn’t.

Good luck! I hate it when people don’t get back to me I always want to ask them “This is your business right? You ARE trying to make money, aren’t you? Because I’m trying to BUY your services.”

woah… I would DEFINITELY stop by. Maybe start by asking to see the progress he’s made? If he hems and haws, be really direct and ask if anything has been done, and then ask for your ring back.

You had a verbal commitment of a time frame, and he’s gone completely outside of that!

@ejs4y8: if you need a recommendation for a new jewler I have an awesome one. Suma Jewlers in Kirkwood. VERY good guy, gemologiest ect.

I wish you luck in getting your stuff back! Personally I do not like confontation, I would prob say something like, “I just do not have the money anymore.”

Let us know how it turns out.  Good Luck!

This guy seems like a flake, I’ll keep my fingers crossed he hasn’t done anything with your stones and you can just take them back and walk out.
