Is it worth trying to replace a ring that got broken when I tried putting it on?
So, I got my 412-845 Starburst ring. It looks exactly as I expected it to look, if maybe feels a touch too small. BUT as I was trying it on, the star came off! It’s not like it was so tight that I had to pull it with pliers or anything. Even when I took it in my hands, I noticed that the star was weirdly moving about. And it just came clean off! The ring is pretty enough even though the S&H i a bit heavy, but would you think this is a sign of systematic quality problem or just a fluke? Should I try reordering another one? How do you even fix something like that – solder it? With what material?
How pretty was it in person? If it were pretty enough & you could exchange it for a larger size with free return shipping, then I would probably try again & wear it a lot within the 30 day return window. If it didn’t break again, then I’d keep it if I liked it.
Definitely would send back. Not a good sign if it fell off. ??????
Massha, I would send it back and probably not order another. I imagine it is only soldered to the band in one small area. That leaves a lot of area not soldered, exposed, and kinda hanging out there. If handling doesn’t put the star at risk of popping off, catching one of the points on something might.
Massha, I would send it back as defective…exchange if you want to and try another one. But this is costume…inexpensive and it would cost more than it’s worth to fix…unless you used some E6000 to try to fix it and it would probably void the "sort of" warranty that the line has. For the star to come off the band like that…I would be leary to try another one. That is mystery metal…I doubt that even soldering it would work.
