I’ve been wearing my wedding band for less than a month now, and I feel like one side has already bent :(. The bottom came back thinner than I was planning (I hadn’t exactly considered that the width on it might be less than 2mm!), and even though I’m pretty good about taking it off when it could get damaged, here I am.
I was a bit on the fence about sending it back to have them add more of an angle than what they sent (we ran out of time before the wedding to have it exact). The stones they chose for the band are so darn pretty, and white, and match my center stone perfectly, and I worry about sending it back for a rebuild will mean that I won’t get the same stones/color/quality returned (because what I really wanted was fewer but larger stones, that didn’t have to match up with the bottom of my e-ring.
So I have four questions I guess. Because the band is so delicate, I feel like I need to get them soldered. If I don’t, it’s going to wear through faster than I really care for. But, how do I maintain that bit of a gap without putting in an extra spacer? Do they solder the bottom, or do they have to join all the way up? I reallllly don’t want that.
Does it look like one side of my band isn’t the same as the other to you?
Do you think I should send it back and have them remake it with more of an angle? I was going for chevron, but this is so minimal, you can barely see it. I at least wanted it to be noticeable.
It doesn’t look to me like the metals are the same color. They should have both been 14k white gold, and I requested that when they had my ER that they dip and clean it. I’m not sure if it’s the optical illusion of the blue diamonds making the metal look darker than the white diamonds, but it doesn’t seem to me like they bothered with the replating.
Thanks In Advance for your feedback!
