This is why you need a shaped, fitted wedding ring.....

When many customers first start shopping for a ladies wedding ring they say they would rather a conventional flat band than a shaped one, not realising the damage this could do to their engagement ring. The problem arises when the diamond setting of an engagement ring protrudes wider that the shank (the band of the ring that goes around your finger). When this happens the side of the diamond's setting rubs against the wedding ring day after day until this happens....

This was an engagement ring brought into RING jewellers for a diamond replacement. Unfortunately we had to explain to the customer that we could not just replace the diamond because the ring was so badly worn. This had happened because the ring had been worn alongside a wedding ring that had not been shaped to fit the engagment ring. The customer had to purchase a whole new ring.

Below is a similar ring that had the wedding ring shaped to fit around it (made by RING jewellers). The customer brought it in recenlty for a polish years after buying it & both rings are in perfect condition!
