    I would just sell the ring to a friend and cut your losses. It just sounds like it’s not going to happen.

    I understand how frustrating this could be!  I would just keep the crystals as keepsakes, but definitely don’t beat yourself up over this.

    I would definitely put the ring on a chain. You obviously really like it and I’m thinking about if it was me in the situation I’d want to keep something that I really like and figure out another way to make it work. If you’re going to keep it I think this is really the best option, as opposed to just staring at it or it collecting dust in a drawer. But if it’s just going to collect dust in a drawer then I would say definitely sell it. 

    Do you have a picture of the ring?

    I see why you’re frustrated and I definitely would be too, but maybe it’s just best to get a little money back and cut your losses. 

    Can you get a Swarovski necklace or something to still have something?

    Ahh this sucks. I think just move on.

    I bought a Swarovski ring (from the store) and took it to get resized but they straight up said it could not be done without damaging the ring, since it’s not silver but metal.

    Urgh. I don’t get why they can’t just make their rings silver?!? (I ended up swapping the ring for earrings…)

    I think this is very much a case of “you get what you pay for” unfortunately. I think Swarovski was able to mark up a ring made out of subpar materials simply because it’s from Swarovski.

    Why don’t you look on ebay for a sterling silver ring, already in the right size, with a manmade gemstone or something?

    So if the ring was advertised as sterling silver I would think you should get your money back right?

    I would try to get your money back, and if you can’t, sell the new ring to your friend.

    My oldest sister bought me a  Swarovski half eternity band with amethst colored crystals and also got the same band with clear crystals for my younger sister. Within 3 months the coating came off to expose the copper on mine and my younger sisters stones shattered.  i also had a necklace of theirs that split in a day…..got a replacement…it split again and I then got my money back.

    In my opinion call it a day with the Swarovski company…they are damn expensive for  what is essentially costume/ junk jewellry…give the small ring to a  friend.  There are companies around that set Swarovski crystals in silver then dip them in gold… they cost less than  Swarovski brand products. I bought a Swarovski pendant, chain and earing combo for myself that cost me $100 from one of those companies. I  bought it 6 months ago wear it everyday and its fine. I got it retail but im sure you could buy it for less on the net.
