Hey ladies !!! I just wanted to say i absolutely love my engagement ring. But I dont love the airline gaps around my center stone. 🙁 does anyone have this ring or have something similar ? The sales associates at peoples said it couldn’t be lowered because the stone needs light. But I see flush halos all the time and theyre gorgeous and sparkle. I would be willing to change the grade of the diamond if that was the real issue. I have an appointment with an independent jeweller coming up but want to see what you guys say in the mean time !

The sales person is wrong: the diamond doesn’t need light. For example, bezel settings often cover the sides. Are you still within the return window? Having an independent jeweler work on the ring might jeopardize any warranties.

In my humble experience stalking mall stores while deciding on a ring, I can honestly say that it seemed the associates didn’t really have very much experience or really know what they were talking about. Not meaning for that to sound condescending, but I would take what they say with a grain of salt. Take it somewhere independent and has experience building rings, not just selling them out of a case!!

By the way that ring looks very pretty 🙂

Agreed that the salesperson doesn’t really know what she’s talking about. But like PP said, work done on the ring outside of where you bought it will probably void the warranty. However, a lot of chains like People’s send out jewelery to be fixed elsewhere and are overpriced on their work so it might not be a total loss to find a good local jeweler. Just something to keep in mind if you want to change your current ring. Doesn’t hurt to take it in to a local jeweler or two and get some ideas and pricing though!

It does look high and it also looks like it can be lowered. Take it to a reputable local (not mall/chain) jeweler for an opinion GL
