I am not sure if I am being too impatient with this whole thing.SO its not technically taking forever because my vendor said 4-6 weeks altogether for the whole process of stone selection and then setting. I ordered the stone on Jan 19th and the vendor got the stone after 2 weeks on last monday. Before I paid I had made it clear in the Etsy convo that I want the stone pics and videos in different lighting to make sure I love the stone before proceeding with the casting ie, sending to their caster. After the stone came I also paid for the setting because she said thats the only way they will give me the CAD. She sent me one pic and on 5 sec video of the stone and thats it. Now I have paid the full amount and still no videos and no CAD. I reached out to her and she said since she was on maternity leave , her assistants sent the stone to caster without taking videos because they werent sure if I want to see the stone as some people like to be surprised (what?!!!?) . This is after I have written message in Etsy about my need to see plenty of stone videos. ANyhow she said she will recah out to caster to get more videos and also to get the CAD sped up. Been a week and no videos yet and no CAD. But she is very responsive on Etsy messages so thats a good thing I guess.
At this rate I dont think I will get the ring anytime soon.She is saying the caster may take 2-3 weeks :((( . Its already 3 weeks now since I paid.I just wanted to vent here and I know this might be a normal duration for a custom setting but ugh its so frustrating that I keep regretting the whole thing.
