Honestly…I would have them replace it. Do a “re proposal” with the new ring.

RayKay:  , I would have them replace the ring and have your fi put it back on your finger rather than chance them screwing up your ring anymore.  I’m sentimental,  so I know how it is to want to keep the “original ” ring, but the new one will still mean just as much and not have all the hidden damage

agreed with RK-let them put it in the new mount.. AND make them throw in jewelry cleaner, a new polishing cloth.. and a discount card for a pair of sparklies for your anniversary ๐Ÿ™‚  don’t let this get you down.  It does not diminish the act or the sentiment.  Don’t let a snafu kill your joy now-because you have only BEGUN to stress on planning.. make your life easy..it can be fixed.

I disagree with PPs, I would want MY ring and diamond and if they cant fix it they can pay for a better jeweler to fix it. Sorry this happened to you. Keep us posted

I understand the sentimentality of the original ring and why you wouldn’t want a replacement. However, in this circumstance I would take the exchange.

It’s the exact same ring, in better condition. Just take the new one.

scissorgirl:  but it’s not the same ring. It’s the same style, but it has a different diamond, potentially not as good as hers-but maybe better, who knows. Regardless, I understand the sentimental reasons for her wanting to keep her current ring.

penguinally:  If you do get a new ring instead of resizing it just .5 size get sizing beads put in, at least those won’t affect the structure of the ring like resizing it does.

2ndchance:  They would 99% most likely unset the diamond and have it set in the new/same setting.

penguinally:  I agree with prinzesschen about sizing beads. I would get the new ring and rather than taking the risk of it getting messed up with sizing the whole ring, just add sizing beads. Sorry about the sentimentality. I understand, but in this case, I think you should have a ring that is perfect and not damaged.

penguinally:  could you get them to order it in in the correct size? When my fiance bought my ring he got it in a size M because the people in the shop said that was the ‘go to size’ when buying an engagement ring… it was too big! When we went in to have it resized they said they could only resize it down a size because of the design so they ordered us in a whole new ring in the correct size.

So I don’t have the ring that he *actually* proposed with but it’s the ring that he chose for me which makes it special ๐Ÿ™‚

scissorgirl:  oh, if that’s the case, then i would consider a new ring – but like OP said, they still have to size that one. What a pain

If you get the new ring I would take it to a small local jeweler and not a chain. I literally had my ring resized in 30mins by the local jeweler who custom makes all my dads jewlery. 

My ring is also from a chain store. They had no problem sizing it for me and I only paid $15.
