You poor thing.

What a struggle all that sounds.

I think you should demand a new ring, as this one has been nothing but trouble.

I am sorry for how you have been treated too- it is not acceptable.

You are not crazy. Let your mother deal with it since she seems to have a good relationship with the jeweler. Maybe she can get them to make you a new setting?

I think the problem started when you asked the jeweler to resize the ring to be smaller.  Pave setting band should never been resized because it compromised the integrity of the ring.  Then you asked him later to make the size bigger, that’s even worse for integrity.  I think (read somewhere) you should resize ring with diamond only one time to preserve integrity of metal.  It’s better to redo your ring from the start again and make sure it’s your ring size.

@Nat_can:  This.

The resizing is most likely what caused the problems with the side stones.  At this point, I think the ring needs to be recast.  I don’t know if you want that jeweler to do it for you.  You may want to just go somewhere else and have the main stone set in something different.  I’m sorry.  I know it’s frustrating.

You need to return to the jewelery store and demand he order a new setting and then be done with him. You cannot let it go because it will make you nuts…it isnt your fault it is shotty workmanship and you need to remember that. Just get it over with now so you can be happy sooner then later and you will look back at this in 10 years and laugh thinkin how happy you are with what you have now. Just my opinion but you need to put your “bitch” cap on and give that jeweler a piece of you mind and demand satisfaction!!!! Good luck and keep us informed!

@MrsToB:  I’m sorry you are going through this Frown

You don’t sound whiny at all.. you have all the right to be upset! I would go back to that jeweler and demand he order a new setting in YOUR size because it was not your correct size in the first place! If he messed it up.. too bad.. that’s bad service and he needs to fix it.

@MrsToB:  I think you should be the one to go back and demand a new ring because if you wait until something falls out they might make you pay out of pocket for it and that wouldn’t be good. Only you understand how frustrating it is at this point because you are the one always taking the ring back for repairs and not getting back correctly fixed and YOU have to wear it so you will be noticing everything wrong with it. I would say not to wait to long because it might be too late. That’s just me though. I’d want to take care of the mess ASAP.

At this point, I’d be tempted to take it to a completely different jeweler, maybe you can find one with good reviews on yelp or angie’s list? though then you’d have to pay for it. Is there a different person at this jewlery store who can worl on the ring? You say your family has always gone here, is this the same jeweler, or a different person now?

If you do go back, I’d ask him to fix it/repair it or replace it. If it doesn’t work, please leave a poor review fpr hom on all the social media you can find to warn other brides.
