@Leemarie:  That doesn’t sound like white gold. Is it stamped? Could it be rhodium plated silver? Silver is much more likely to bend like that. Also, can you post a picture of your rings? If the band is particularly thin that might make it more likely to bend.

@Leemarie:  where did you get them from?  that does not sound right.  i’ve had my ring for years and have had zero issues.

Gold needs more than a bang to bend. Sounds like silver.

Yeah… that isn’t normal.  Is it very thin? I wear my rings for everything and don’t have any worries or issues.

Is it 18k? It is usually pretty hardy. Platinum is softer, actually, than most gold alloy rings.

It shouldn’t cost too much to fix. Your jeweler may even do it free of charge. Mine told me he would, if things like that ever happened. He will even replace the little diamonds for free (just not the big one, that’s up to insurance). Hope your jeweler is similar.

I never, ever take my rings off no matter what I am doing (moving, scrubbing pots, etc.) and only have a couple scratches… I even bang it on the car window all the time when I smoke (don’t judge, lol). You need to get it to a jeweler asap, it should not be bent that easily.

There has to be something wrong… I work maitnence and have never bent my ring or knocked a stone out. It was 10k gold.

Agree with PPs saying this isn’t normal…the only thing I take off my rings for is the shower because my hands get so slippery. I wear them for work (including physical labor), cleaning, everything. I’d want to take them to the jewelers to get them fixed too, but I would also take them to a different jeweler than the one who sold them to you to get them inspected – gold should not bend so easily.

Sorry to say…This sounds like the ultimate in poor craftmanship. I wear my rings for everything. There is no way your ring should be bending that easily. It does sound like it could be silver instead of gold…either that or there is something wrong with the gold alloy. 

Can you take it back to the jewelry shop where you bought it? The manufacturer/seller has some explaining to do.
