Oh no!  I hope that you can get it fixed or get a replacement!

That sucks. Sorry to hear that. I would take it to a local jeweler and see if he/she can’t mend the crack, but that’s because I don’t want to ship any of my sentimental rings out away from me.

I got a crack on my band once and it needed a new shank once and yes, it meant a replacement. If she welds it, it may just continue to crack. Welding never fully repairs the metal to its original strength

Make sure you do not get chlorine around your gold.  I noticed the same thing happened to my mom’s.  Her diamond was barely hanging in there.  The jeweler asked if she had been swimming a lot or spending time in the hot tub.  My family had just gotten a hot tub and I guess soaking in the chlorine is REALLY bad and eats away at the gold.

Oh no! That’s sad! At least she is willing to fix it -that’s very good!!
