I''ve been engaged for 2 years, and when my fiance and I went to pick out the setting the jeweler told us to buy an uncertified center stone and upgrade before the wedding. Well, my wedding is in September and I went to the jeweler to inquire about the price difference and he tried to convince me not to change the stone. He also tried to convince me that if I upgrade I should keep the original stone (implying that he didn''t really want to exchange the stone as he initially said we could). Now I''m worried that the appraisal that he gave to us is not at all what the ring is worth. I feel bad because it was a major investment, should I have it appraised by another jeweler, an independent appraiser? Any suggestions? Has this happened to anyone else?
