by Jsand » Aug 3, 2019 Happy weekend PSers! I’m hoping for some advice here. My husband and I got married without an engagement so we never had an Ering. We’re saving for a really special HPD one currently (thanks to my PS lurking!), but in the meantime I wanted *something* so I had a little project on the side! I found a pretty peach 0.9ct sapphire and wanted it set into a dainty halo. I had an Etsy vendor do this for me. It took forever and a day and to me, the result is just the absolute pits. It looks SO messy. The prongs holding the center stone are varying heights and angles, the polish on the entire mount is rough and noticeably bumpy, particularly in the gallery. The stone doesn’t seem set straight, I think it’s slightly higher up on one end. It also seems to sit too high like it’s bursting out of the halo. I also asked for the halo diamonds to be very tightly packed together but they don’t look to be. I’d love to know if PSers either in the trade, or just have a lot of experience with buying custom rings, think I’m being too fussy and unreasonable. I want them to either re-make it, or offer a partial refund so I can have a different jeweler maybe tidy it up a bit. What’s fair in this situation do you think? Does this look acceptable quality? Personally if I were a jeweler there’s no way in hell I’d send this to a customer. But maybe my expectations are too high?! Pics to follow!
