by sunshowers » May 13, 2019 I apologize if this is a strange question! I'll do my best to explain the context. My fiance proposed a couple months ago with a ring from Brilliant Earth. Unfortunately the ring was too big. BE quoted several weeks to have the ring sent back for free resizing, so I took it to a local jeweler rather than be without my ring for so long. The jeweler explained that because it's a 3-stone setting, and needed sizing down significantly from 5 to 3.5, the ring would end up somewhat oval shaped east-to-west. Trying for a perfectly round circumference would've risked the integrity of the settings holding the side stones. They did their best, but the ring does have a distinctly oval shape. I didn't think it would bother me much, but the longer I wear it, the more bothered I am. When I look down my finger, I can see slight gaps between the ring and the sides of my finger. It also causes my ring to sit askew rather than perpendicular to my finger, since the ring basically still has the width of a larger size. I'm wondering if I should've just sent the ring back to BE - maybe they would've reset the stone in a new size 3.5 setting rather than try to shrink down the size 5? Or is that wishful thinking? Do they even have settings available in various sizes, or would they had to have resized a stock setting even if my fiance had ordered the right size in the first place? I know there's no point trying to go back in time, but maybe sharing my experience and getting the advice of the experts here could save someone else from making the same mistake! Looking forward, I wonder if it would be worth taking the ring back to the jeweler and asking them to reshape my ring at any cost, even if it means rebuilding it to some degree, or if it would make more sense just to order a new setting (in my correct size if that's even possible) from BE (I really, really love the setting) and have the jeweler reset the stones for me? Or do I just need to get a grip and stop thinking about it? Thanks for your thoughts and advice!
