    blah, this is why I like working with someone local. Yes, you should fight for it to be made correctly.

    @Quickiebee:  I would fight for it. It is something you will have to wear everyday, and you requested specific details, in which they did not follow through.  A good company will want to please their customers.

    @Quickiebee:  Honestly, I would just ask to have it re-done. If you don’t like it and are not happy wearing it, it’s just easier to request a new one.

    @Quickiebee:  Do you have the description in writing somewhere?

    I’d maybe make it super obvious and just be like:

    Here is what I wanted and what you said you’d make: *correct sizes*
    Here is what you actually made: *the wrong sizes

    I’d fight for it.  You have an agreement that you will pay X in return for item as specified.  They have not provided the item to the mutually agreed upon specifications.  That’s pretty much exactly what I would tell them too – “We agreed that the ring would be hammered rose gold, 2mm wide and 1.5mm tall.  This ring is 3mm wide and 2mm tall, so it does not match the agreed upon specifications.”

    If they did it wrong, they should fix it.  And they should do it without a fight if they’re reputable.

    The main problem here is the depth of the ring. You asked for a light ring (normally around 1.3mm) and you are getting a heavy ring (usually 2.1mm). That is completely wrong and 2 depth sizes too big! You will be really unhappy with a ring that deep if you wanted something dainty. You won’t wear it so don’t accept it! You must have details of your conversation detailed somewhere? Even though they are custom-made, they are not what you asked for so they need to fix them. Good luck!

    @Quickiebee:  You are not being picky… you are asking to have what you paid to have made. Being picky would be if you ordered a 2.1mm and you got 2.0. This is different

    Fight and have it remade so that you’re happy with your ring!!  You don’t want to have a wedding band that you dislike staring up at you forever.

    Oh yes – I just hate it when things are done incorrectly and I have to confront them – especially when I know it’s going to be a struggle.

    I’ve even tried to ignore the obvious (a crooked basket) in the name of peace. But in the end – it did not please me. The store (of course) is going attempt to talk you out of changing it – so will the  ring designer – it’s going to cost them more – however – you need to wear this ring for the rest of your life. Not the shopkeeper – you.

    I am so sorry this is happening to you but experience tells me it is worth the hassle.

    It isn’t what you paid for, of course you should have it redone.
