@napabridekelsey: I would go to a local jeweler with good reviews.

I got my ring re-sized at a local jeweler and it only took 1 day (whereas chain stores tend to take a week or more).

My ring is from Kay’s. It takes awhile because they don’t have a jeweler on sight. I say if you want it in a rush take it to a local guy.

It would probably be faster to have it re-set locally, but make sure your jeweler is aware that it’s an asha!! They could damage your stone if they don’t know!

@napabridekelsey: I heard that high temperatures can effect the color of the stone. Also, asha is slightly softer than diamond so it needs to be handled appropriately. πŸ™‚

I would go to a local place, not a chain like Kay’s! It’s probably faster and better quality (not that I have anything against chains, but you tend to get more personalized service from other places).

@napabridekelsey: Maybe you could ask the Asha people on their live chat if there is anything you should know/should tell a jeweler before having it fixed?

I was always fairly certain that Asha IS a type of CZ, just with a few differences from a regular CZ. 

“The Asha is a form of CZ combined with amorphous diamond, but is tougher than regular cz.” –http://betterthandiamond.com/faq/faq.01.php

I am sure the sales lady didn’t mean to offend.

But that is besides the point, I am happy you got it fixed. πŸ™‚
