    Fantastic!  I know it was hard sending it back but it was well worth the wait.  It looks so much better than before.  I know you are extremely happy!

    I’m an amateur jeweler.  Regardless of whether the ring was cast or fabricated and then pierced, the interior edges of that section were not properly filed and polished.  They should not look like that.  My very first jewelry piece, in my beginning metals course, has better finishing than that area!  Filing the edges of a pieces, especially a small one like a ring, is a pain in the ass, but it’s not difficult – just tedious – and it’s part of the job.  They absolutely need to fix it.

    Just read your story! Great ending 😉 I’m also happy to hear you found a palladium wedding band. I was wondering what you were going to wear. It seems it’s slightly thinner too, which looks even better with your new e-ring. 

    It’s interesting because I have a ring with a similar shank that splits like yours to meet the basket. Mine was custom, and I noticed the inside of the B was not smooth. It wasn’t jagged like yours but it was the most imperfect spot. The jeweler told me it was too narrow for him to get in there and polish but I have learned from your story that it is indeed possible. Anyway, it’s not noticeable to me so I don’t mind, but it might be a common place for jewelers to have trouble finishing properly.

    Any jeweler who tells you they can’t finish that kind of thing is either lying, or doesn’t know their stuff.  It’s actually not at ALL impossible to finish tiny openings like that.  It can be done by putting polishing compound (rouge, tripoli, etc) on a cotton thread or cord (size of thread depends on the size of the hole), feeding the thread through the thread through the hole, and then sliding the thread back and forth.  This method is known as “stropping.”  Like I said, it’s tedious, and lots of jewelers don’t like doing it, but it’s not difficult.

    Hey cebree! I finally ordered my eng 689 ring, and was curious what your wedding band width is. I’m trying to decide on a band and I’m really loving your flat band. Thanks!
