Alright I feel like a jerk. Is yours 1 ct? I think they're $150 at Asha? I would call that jeweler and tell them about all the scratches and gouges and send them a price quote for a new stone from Asha, demanding the money. Seriously, I would. If you can call them, do certified mail with your demand and pictures and give them 10 days before you report them fraud. If at all anything they are completely at fault for messing up the stone.
I need to man up - I nervous about doing as you suggest because the jeweler was so lovely and polite to work with.
HOWEVER: you'd think that they'd check the ring when they got it from Ritani before sending it on to me right..
...and then you'd THINK they'd tell me about the quite obvious scratching...
Bronwyn, I'm just double checking, you can actually reuse your setting? Who would you get this done with?
Thank you so much ladies! I just knew something wasn't right as soon as I opened the box, although I ignored that nagging feeling and was too eager to finally post pics here...
