I’m sorry, but that ring is hopelessly flawed. I don’t think that’s acceptable work at all 😕

This isn’t normal. I’d be getting my cash back and going elsewhere.

Your jeweler is lying. You do not “melt” the setting to head. He is likely referring to soldering but that should NOT cause a crack or look so shoddy and unfinished. You should not have a crack in a new setting – this is either a result of casting, improper setting or soldering techniques, etc. It is poor workmanship.

Also, those holes are porosity issues that arose during casting. It likely exists throughout the ring, not just on the surface. It means the setting itself is likely to break, crack, and so on with impact (plus it looks terrible!). It is NOT not normal or acceptable and don’t let them convince you otherwise.

Return it and go elsewhere.

You really, really need to get your money back and go somewhere else.

You’re being stingy as hell by not showing us the stone. We’re BEES! We need to see the stone!!

As for the setting, I wouldn’t accept it. It’s too vulnerable to repair issues in the future and I don’t think it will stand the test of time. Use another jeweler. That one has no pride.

My ring was custom made, that quality is not acceptable.

No way, get that rock out of there and have it re done elsewhere, you are being lied to for sure

Yeah, that’s terrible. He’s lying. Take the stone and go elsewhere.

Why can’t we see the stone?
