If you’re interested, and want to tell us what kind of budget you have, we can recommend someone who is very reputable and won’t screw it up.

zamorski :  Many custom jeweler’s will ship internationally, so don’t rule that out just yet. I know David Klass does for sure, and other Bees can give you more options! Don’t give up, your dream ring is out there!

If they treated someone like that in front of me I would walk out of the store! It’s no way to treat anyone who has paid your store good money. Leave a horrible review on every platform possible. Post pictures of the ring with pointing out the mistakes and make sure to touch on the fact that they humiliated you in front of others.

 I’ll be honest — I don’t see anything wrong with the ring.  With that said, if you’re not happy with it, then you’re not happy with it, and it’s the store’s job to treat you with respect.  Agree with PP that you should get a stock setting from someone else; I think that would be a much safer, less stressful option for you.

zamorski :  I’m not sure if it’s the angle but it looks like the head of the setting or the prongs are turned too much. And the band part with the diamonds doesn’t look symmetrical. The left side looks weird. Again, it could be the angle and the lighting, but that’s what I notice when I look at your ring.

I don’t think you’re being over dramatic or ridiculous at all! 

If I had to go through that shit show to then have to start all over again I’d be pissed, fed up, and not eager to give it another go. You have every right to be 100% happy with sometime that you will be wearing for the rest of your life, and symbolizes your marriage.

it could just be the angle of the picture but it does look a little off, nothing too crazy, but if you’re not happy with it you’re not happy with it there’s nothing wrong with that. Customer service should have treated you much better even if you were being “ridiculous” and they couldn’t do anything else for you. 

But like other posters have said, just take a moment to be hurt and angry, and then mi e forward with finding someone else with lots of research, this time around I’m sure you’ll be very happy! Best of luck him sorry you’re going through that and then made to feel like crap about it on top of that ☹️

I’m so sorry for this. Having problems with jewellers is the worst and it causes such heartbreak! Just get it done somewhere else from a stock mold, go easy on yourself and stop stressing about it, that’s my advice.

My boyfriend had a custom engagement ring made for me and it turned out to be really poor quality. I never saw it, but he made the right call not to propose with it and returned it. The jewellers disagreed and tried to convince that it’s fine at first, but eventually accepted the return and charged him a portion of money he paid because it was custom made… What the hell!

All of my dreaming of going for a summer break to my hometown and announcing we’re engaged there is gone (going next week already). BF has to start from scratch finding a suitable ring, so my day is verrrry far away now. 🙁

I think it’s beautiful, and I’d be proud to wear it.

There is a certain sort of obsession that appears to be chronic among some current brides, and as with any obsession, if it stays under check it may be harmless, but out of control, no one benefits

In my engagement years, there was much less emphasis on perfection, the FOUR Cs, The Proposal, the Planning, the RULES, The Rude and UnRude onandonandonandonandon.

If such things are FUN, WONDERFUL!

But public tears, recriminations, regrets? Really very sad for you. Someone loves you and has become engaged to you. Whether the head of that beautiful ring is a micro fraction of an inch out of kilter? Not so major.

You are SO entitled to be thrilled with what you have.and that hasn’t happened. If your ring isn’t symmetrical, it is (was) still symmetrical in its own right. I am saying this as a VERY symmetrically oriented person too.

I don’t have a “solution” for your ring problem, and I wish I did. But after 40 years with the same man I will tell you that as time goes by, some things will be bad, some better. If the ring problem is the worst thing that ever happens during your years together, be grateful.
