Feelin' naked  
In November (11/7, to be precise), I had a "Spring Bar" installed into my wedding ring.  It's basically a white gold bar that sticks into the middle of the ring space to prevent it from sliding off my finger, which is several sizes smaller than it was when I first slid the ring on.

Last night, the Spring Bar snapped off, making the inside of my ring very sharp.

Robbins Bros has the ring again, and thankfully they recognize that this shouldn't have happened this quickly (if at all), so they're fixing it for free.  So I'm ringless until at least 4:00 tomorrow afternoon.

And apparently I'm making up for it by posting and posting and posting.  Guess I'll stop and go have lunch or something...

your first mistake was purchasing a ring at robin bros!

Actually, he didn't get it from Robin's Bros. That's just where he took it for the insert because his ring was purchased from an estate jewler who doesn't make repairs on location. (They would have to ship it to San Fransisco.)

Robins Bros should not even be an option when trying to fix or buy any jewerly.
They suck ass! Their quality is shit and so is their customer service.

I've noticed. Now.
Sadly, it's a little late - the spring bar was installed there, and they're the ones making it as right as they can. Once it's determined that they can't, I'll demand that they put it the way I originally brought it to them and give me a refund. But until that time, I'm sticking with them 'cause it's free.

Bought the ring at Disneyland.

Re: Nuh uh.
ok, your first mistake was buying the ring from that overpriced store in New Orlenes square!
Next time you are going to buy any expensive or antique piece of jewerly please consult me before doing so! I am close to an expert on the subject!

Wrong again.
I wasn't looking for the ring there. I wasn't even looking for the ring then. The ring found me at that place at that time. It called me to its display and said "you're going to buy me now."

When the universe yells in your ear at the top of its lungs, you listen.

Re: Wrong again.
Not me. When something yells in my ear at the top of its lungs, I stop listening. To anything, for several hours.

You're just weird.
