This is really embarrassing but it seems a lot of things I post lately are.
I had to have surgery over the summer and was told I couldn't wear any jewelry (never had surgery before). I hadn't taken my wedding rings off for a good 6 years and wondered what I was going to do.
I ended up ordering a tool off of Amazon and actually cut my rings off by myself. Didn't even wait for my DH to come home, it was like once I could get them off I just had to!
So now I am left with a mangled gorgeous mess. I don't live anywhere near my old jeweler so I will have to find a new one in my area.
Does anyone have any tips on what I should be asking for when I drop my rings off as far as a write-up description of my rings? My rings aren't certified diamonds or anything but still worth money plus sentimental value. I always get paranoid after seeing tv specials where stones get swapped, etc.
I am almost at the point that I'd rather just keep my mangled mess rather than risking something happening to it. I do believe that 99.9% of jewelers would probably be honest and helpful but that .1% would be my luck.
Thanks for any advice you can give.
