I sent my ring back for repairs a couple of times, and eventually they had to re-make the whole thing.  Whenthe new ring came back, the centre stone was a TINY bit crooked in the setting (ony visible from the side, as in one side was a bit higher than the other), but I decided to live with it.

 

So, basically I’ve done both, sent the ring back, and also lived with a flaw.  In your case, its such a small issue, and does not risk the safety of your stone, so I would leave it. It’s not worth the stress of shipping it back and forth, and the anxiety of being without your ring!  ๐Ÿ™‚

ETA:  reading comprehension fail… I see you already made your decision ๐Ÿ™‚

The day after i got my e ring I noticed one of the tiny pave diamonds on it is a little yellow. It drove me crazy for a few days but no one notices except me! So I’m leaving it like that. It reminds me that neither life nor our relationship is perfect, but we love them anyway!

@MrsEME:  I’m glad to know I’m not the only one! After super careful examination of my sapphire from the side, I’m 99% sure it’s just a hair crooked. But you totally can’t tell unless you hold it right in front of your eyes and stair at it. And even then I sort of second guess myself. I’m not sure if it’s purposefully set that way to enhance the color or something, but you can’t tell otherwise. We ordered online as well, and I’m not sure if I would have to send it back there for an adjustment. I’m so nervous about the idea of shipping my ring out that I might just live with the imperfection. I really have no desire to take my beautiful ring off my finger!

@MrsEME:  Yea, there’s a warranty on it, which is why I feel like I’d have to ship it back. We’re getting it appraised on Friday (FI didn’t have it long enough to get it appraised before he gave it to me lol), so I’ll ask their opinion on the stone. It seems like it’s securely in there, but I want to double check. The measurements of the stone seemed like it was pretty symmetrical, but who knows! Thanks for the info that some stones are purposefully set “crooked.” That definitely makes me feel better. And like I said, you totally can’t tell unless you look really hard for it!

@MrsEME:  that’s a good point. I also know that sapphires (and other colored stones) are cut differently to maximize the color. So it’s possible that they set it in a way to make sure the color appears perfectly even. Either way it’s not noticable unless I stare at it. I might have to get it sized down a bit though, so if I do end up having to send it off I might enquire about the setting of the stone. Not looking forward to that though!
