@Pepperwoodsy:  If it was a family heirloom, maybe someone in his family still has it insured? They can work magic with rings nowadays so I am sure it will be back in its original condition in no time 🙂 I’m sorry you’re going through this, but I really believe it will all work out fine.

Platinum can bend upon impact – I found that out the hard way.  That, plus years of wear can weaken a setting, and even a perfectly new ring hit in the right (or wrong) place can cause damage.  Fear not, a good jeweler should be able to restore it!

@Pepperwoodsy:  I’m sorry this happened! I don’t have personal experience with this but I have seen past threads where brides have shown bent baskets and damage to their rings, and the rings have been repaired. Be sure to take it to a reputable jeweler.

Do you have a picture of it after it was bent? I can tell you if it can be fixed.

Try to find a jeweler who specializes in complicated repairs, custom work, and/or bringing heirlooms back from the dead. We have a really good one here in the area and somebody like that could probably make it shiny and new again!

Good luck!
