Not going to lie, I did not read down when I opened the post, once I got to the point of the stone being lost my mouth just dropped open. I’m so glad that you were able to find it, and thankfully that it was at home. Huge win on that.

I’m sorry that it has been such a headache, but best to get things all straightened out now :-/

Glad you found it! That would have been a task were you not at the table, or if you had lost it more than an hour ago but hadn’t noticed yet!

Good on you to approach the jeweler. Maybe a little blessing in disquise!

I don’t look at my rings that often to check them, so I wouldn’t even know where to begin if I looked down and found one gone.

You have been through hell on this, you deserve a much better ring than the terrible job that they did!

Wow I’m so sorry! Please demand your money back, the jeweller sounds terrible. Are you sure it’s even gold? White gold doesn’t have to be plated so shouldn’t look rusty. I hope you can get it fixed quickly somewhere else and can enjoy it really soon!

So glad you easily found the stone!!

KellyB262 :  White gold is indeed always dipped/plated. You’ll see over time, the finish will “rub” off so it’ll need to be refinished. This is the “negative” aspect of owning white gold.

teamroro :  I’m sorry this happend, but thank goodness you found the stone! I would take pictures and see about taking action against the jeweler that messed things up. You spent money to get a service and they didn’t deliver, I think you are entitled to compensation or to at least try. I hope it goes better from here on out!

Where did you get the ring from? Was it one of the retail chains (Kay’s, Jared, Zales, etc) or an independent jeweler?

I’m so sorry, that is messy! Glad you found the stone though. Hopefully you two won’t have to invest too much money into getting it fixed. I’d definitely be bitching out the place where you got it from though. See what they have to say for themselves.

teamroro :  wow! For a huge stone like yours I would be pissed at the setting job! 

I will say though, I work in a jewelry shop and we do no rhodium prior to setting. Rhodium can burn and leave gold tarnished if you put head on it and sizing/setting are done all at once. Still, it should be that color. I’m glad you found your stone!

How upsetting and what good fortune at the same time. The first version of my custom ering, the jeweler made the prongs too thin – unbeknownst to us until I wacked my hand on something in a public restroom and my sapphire popped out and landed right by a floor drain!

My SO told the guy off good after that one and it was properly fixed. I’m glad you were able to find your stone right away and I hope you get your ring back quickly and much better than before!
