I purchased a Vera Wang wedding ring for my wife almost 3 years ago from Zales at a purchase price of roughly $4,500. Since purchasing, I have had to have this ring fixed for a missing sapphire 4 times. Zales then replaced the entire ring for a new ring-same style-but new. We had to wait 16 weeks for that ring while my wife continued to wear a broken ring. We finally received that ring in June. Then, come October, low and behold, my wife's sapphire falls out AGAIN. We have not made it 3 months without a sapphire falling out of her wedding ring since we purchased it. Now, Zales is saying they can order us a new ring, at a price of $450 to cover the cost of the lifetime warranty-which I already have. They won't do anything else. So my choices are, keep a broken ring, or pay MORE money to replace the existing ring. I understand Zales is the seller; however, it is not Zales that produced this ring, and therefore not their responsibility to make things right with the customer. I am highly disappointed and frankly irate at the poor quality of this design. Including travel time to and from Zales to drop off and pick up a ring 5 times, the price of the ring AND interest on the ring that I have been paying even though I don't have a fully intact ring, I am out over $6,500. This is unacceptable.
