Seeing as it’s already on it’s way back I would give them one more chance.  What’s it going to hurt?

I had a bad experience having something custom made, so you can take my opinion with a grain of salt.

My original e-ring did not come with a wedding band so I had to have one custom made.  I went to a local jeweler that was recommended by many people, so I felt pretty good going in. (I should add that Darling Husband got my ring out of state so I couldn’t go back to the original jeweler, and the ring did not come with a band anyway) It took 6 weeks for them to make a simple gold band insert for my e-ring.  When I went in to see it, I couldn’t believe how awful it looked!  I had the same thought – how could they possibly expect me to like it?  I’ll admit I’m a bit of a perfectionist, but even the jeweler admitted they had a “hard time” getting the band to fit right.  I should have asked for my money back and gone somewhere else but it was so close to our wedding that I felt like I didn’t have a choice.  I did wind up buying a new band elsewhere and wore my e-ring and wedding band on different hands.

In your case, I would probably give your jeweler one more chance.  If it comes back crappy then I would probably look at other options, ie. going somewhere else.

I understand how frustrating it can be, especially when you see pictures on this and other forums of beautiful custom made rings.

See what happens when it comes back and then figure it out from there
