Get this fixed ASAP, especially since it’s damage to a prong! Take it to a jeweler you trust and ask what the best course of action would be; they would know best.

Definitely take it to get fixed ASAP and let them know this is unacceptable. If they can’t fix it, find a competent jeweler! Ugh!

If it’s abrasive, it’s probably pretty annoying so I’d get it polished or fixed or whatever they have to do, espcially if you need bring it in sooner or later since it was their fault so that they don’t charge you for it.  If it doesn’t bother you too much, and they’ll buff it out for not charge later, Id just wait, it just looks like a surface scratch that isnt going to compromise the integrity of the prongs. 

What kind of band are you going to wear with the ring?  If you try to wear a straight band, it’d likely you’ll wear down the bottom there a lot worse than that scratch.  My prongs are almost completely flat on the side now from rubbing against my wedding band.

I would take it to a different jeweler and have it buffed out and the prongs rechecked
