If you ordered a straight band, they should not have made changes without your approval.  speak with the manager and explain.  the two rings don’t really flow together, the band distracts the eye from your e-ring.  and not sure about your preference but you can’t wear this band alone, it will look odd.

If it isn’t what you ordered, then your jeweler should work with you to fix it.

By The Way – this thread would get more responses in the Rings category.  I’ve flagged a mod to move it. 🙂

i agree, if you asked for a straight band, then you should get a straight band. 

what did you say when you picked up your band?  is it paid in full?  did you take this band home?  hopefully you won’t have a problem returning it since it was a custom order, even though it was not what you asked for.

good luck & keep us updated.

I like it and think it complements your e-ring well!

I think it looks lovely in 4 and 5, but pic 6 seems like there’s a bigger gap than I noticed in the other photos.

However, if it’s not what you’d asked for, I’d for sure go in and talk with them. Did they ever show you any wax models or CADs? If you asked for a straight band and never showed you anything that looked more like this before making it, then they should really buck up and fix it.  I hope it goes well!

If it’s not what you ordered you should speak up!

I think I would prefer a straight band, too.

If it’s not what you ordered and you are not sure if you love it then you should return it.  It is only a matter of time before you get ring regret and I am pretty sure there is some sort of time limit on how long you can wait before you can make them chenge it at no cost to you.

If it isn’t what you wanted, you need to go back to the shop and make them change it. Did you review a wax sample? They probably couldn’t have the ring lay flush with your e-ring without having some taper, but it looks like they bowed it out a little too much?

I went through a similar dilemma. We had everything drawn up and when we came down to check the wax sample, the jeweler had changed the design completely. When I fussed, he said “It’s better!”. Needless to say, that wasn’t the best thing to say, and after some arguing he agreed to re-do the wax sample. The next time we checked the wax sample, we had some small adjustments. (He’d used straight hatch marks instead of the organic swirl I requested) In the end it turned out exactly how I wanted it, but it was a frustrating process.

Good luck! Hope they can fix things for you so that you’re 100% happy with the band.

I think they look like a complete set. I’m not into gaps between rings so I’d think that probably looks better. But I say get what you originally wanted because you should love your rings.

I think it might take too much away from your e ring as well. It completely changes the look of your e ring and makes it look a little boxy. I think you should have gotten what you asked for. Do you have documentation of what you asked and paid for?

@ashmarie87:  The curved part looks a bit weird to me. If it’s not what you asked for or want, make them change it!

If that is not what you ordered then you should really contact the person that made it so you can explain this. If you wanted a straight band then that is what you should get. Good luck and keep us updated 🙂

If you don’t love your rings, have them fix it. If you ordered a straight band, then you should have gotten a straight band. They should not have changed it. I personally think it looks very pretty with your e-ring. Although, I do agree with the other bees and feel the gap makes it ‘off’.
