So I just got my engagement ring from FI which I absolutely love...There is one thing that I notice that *bugs* me somewhat, and I don''t know why I didn''t notice it sooner (blinded by beautiful diamonds maybe

)


Here''s a pic so you can see what I''m talking about as I''m not great at describing it...It appears to me that one side of the band is pinched together more than the other side (notice the left hand side compared to the right)...


Now I''ve only had the ring since the 9th...and I don''t think that simple, normal wear would be enough to bend 18K WG like that...maybe I''m wrong?!


If I wanted to go through the process of getting it corrected what would be the first step? Talk to the designer directly or go to the 3rd party who the ring was purchased through? Is it something that I should even bother with...Ultimately I know it''s my decision if I should pursue this but I just wanted some of my fellow PS''ers opinions...

Start with the place where you bought it. If it bugs you, get it fixed. It''s as simple as that. Not that it matters but it shouldn''t be difficult for someone with the right tools.

Couldn''t agree more - don''t let something like that make you unhappy or keep you from enjoying your ring. Should be a simple enough fix!

Congratulations on your engagement! I definitely see what you''re talking about - that would bug me too. Ditto denverappraiser''s advise to start where you bought the ring - hope you get it fixed to your satisfaction.

Congrats!
While the ring is beautiful, you should have the flaw fixed- it will just bug you more if you wait.

It would bother me. You should take it back to the vendor it was purchased from.

Thanks everyone!

My gut is telling me to take it back and get it fixed...FI thinks that I did it somehow wearing it and doesn't think that the jeweler will be able to do anything...I just told him at least we can try.

Anyway I'm taking it in this weekend...I really hope they can fix it

It looks like it is something that can happen when you wear the ring but as it is at the back rather than the front, hopefully it is something that will not cause you too much alarm if it happens again after they fix it as your ring is too beautiful not to keep looking at it from the front!

Definitely get it fixed, these things just feel worse through time.
