i got a ring for christmas. the local jeweller said it cannot be resized because of the narrow rails and small baguette (?) diamonds being too delicate they would pop out. when i phoned the store it was bought at, they said most rings come only in a size 7. so, i need a size 8, but, they don't make womens' rings in size 8???
it almost fits. i'm sure if i lost weight, it would fit. i really like it and my choice seems to be to return it and get something totally different (if they have anything that fits) which would also be of lesser value because my dh got this on sale and there is no longer a sale; lose weight (most desirable, but, hasn't happened yet); or return it and go somewhere else; or, i guess, i could wear it on a chain around my neck (til i lost weight
i have never really had any nice jewellery before and MY MAIN QUESTION IS, do they really only make rings in a size 7 or was she bs'ing me? sounds weird to say only people with size 7 fingers can have diamond rings.
I TOOK THE RING TO 3 JEWELLERS AND CONFIRMED IT COULDN'T BE RESIZED. SO WE RETURNED IT AND BOUGHT A DIFFERENT RING AT A DIFFERENT STORE.
of course this ring had to be resized too. so, we left it there and a week later they called that is was ready. i went and picked it up yesterday. well, first of all when she took it out of the envelope, i said that's not the right ring. she compared my sales slip with their copy, said it was. i said i'm pretty sure i got a yellow gold ring and this is white gold (the style was the same though). she showed me the serial numbers on the sales slip and said wg stood for white gold. i called my dh and my mom. of course dh didn't remember at all. but, my mom said for sure it was yellow gold. then i was looking at it and realized the circle was crooked, they did a poor job resizing it. at this point, i was ready to lose it.
finally, the manager came out and we (the clerk and i) explained to her the situation and she looked at me and said, yes, i remember you and you are right you did pick a yellow gold one. now, i saw the clerk put the ring in the envelope in front of me. how on earth did i get the wrong one back????
she was happy to take the ring back and get my original order done. but, i live an hour away from this place in another town. i don't have time and i hate driving that highway in the winter and we have now been down 3 times. the thought of having to go back again almost made me want to cry.
after more discussion and some research on the internet and trying on some different colored rings i decided to keep the white gold (the original one my dh bought was white gold) and instead of leaving it there to fix the poor resize job, she said anytime i was back on a saturday or sunday they would fix it then and it would only take 30 minutes or so. so, i have a ring finally. but, it wasn't exactly the most joyous thing for me. i don't really wear jewellery and i found this to be such a frustrating experience.
but, the ring is very pretty and i am enjoying looking at it. and it means that after 17 years my dh is finally going make an honest woman out of me...
i can't even imagine how stressful i will find planning some kind of wedding...omg
