@MrsEME:  I would be paranoid that something would happen to it, so I would send it back and if you worry they switch the diamond, check it out when you get it back, thats all! 🙂

Hmm. Does the place have a time limit on when they will re-set it? I’d wait a bit and see if it continues to bother you. But really, they sold you the diamond, why would they swap it? Realistically they could just as well have put a fake one in originally, ya know? It just seems unlikely; I wouldn’t let that sway your decision. I’m a perfectionist, so personally yes I would send it back to get re-set.

If you don’t notice, and the diamond is secure, then I’d just keep it.  I wouldn’t want to deal with sending it back and then waiting for it again.  Also, what if jeweler loses it?  What if the post office loses it? What if it gets damaged during repairs?  What if they lose or swap your diamond?

I wouldnt mess with it. You found this out by “accident” and since it is not visible to the naked eye, i would leave it alone.

I think it all depends on how OCD you are. I know that the ever-so-slight irregularity would drive me NUTS, so I would definitely get it fixed, but that’s just me and my quirks.


As for having the diamond switched, in all honesty I would be much more worried if I were to have that done by a local jeweller, as opposed to sending back to the people who sold you the diamond (unless it’s something sketchy like an ebay seller). I’m sure you could open a new thread and ask people about their experiences with that online company for peace of mind.


After all, if at some point you decide to change the setting and find a different laser inscribed stone there, it’s going to be pretty clear who made the switch – and that’s NOT good for a business’ reputation.

I would save the trouble and worry and keep it since its a very minor thing and you didn’t even notice in the first place

If the turn-around time is really quick, and the jeweller seems reputable, I would get it fixed if it’s going to bug you. There’s a lifetime warranty on it and they seem flexible – just make sure you get it insured or tracked or whatever when you ship it.

I know you found out that it was crooked by accident, but you’re going to be wearing this thing for the rest of your life, right? Might as well have it be perfect 😉

I would say to leave it. Nothing hand made is going to be 100% perfect. Unless it caused a structional issue, I think I would leave it. I guess it just depends how much it bothers you!

Don’t mess with it!! A little imperfection is perfect! Especially since its secure.

i personally wouldn’t mess with it, if your diamond is secure then leave it, if for any reason you send it back for something else, rhodium plating or cleaning or a loose prong if you have other stones in the ring, then have them reset it while they have it there. i would hate to risk sending it back and not having it for a few days over sending it in and having them fix something thats very slight.
