This is the oddest post of the week, in fact, this post is downright annoying. I worked for a Kay's Jewelers in college. We would typically just roll our eyes at each other when we got a customer like this. You said the jeweler checked your ring size several times, did a good job resizing it, was thoughtful enough enough to tell you that the engraving might be removed, and gave you a fair price? Who would complain under those circumstances? Any repair we took in at Kay's had to be signed for. You even complained that you had to sign?? Also, I'm a paralegal and I'm pretty sure you can't sue someone for sizing a ring incorrectly. Surprise,... the jeweler would simply re-size the ring. But being that she checked your ring size several times, the jeweler avoided that problem. Was this your first trip into a jewelry store? It sounds like you may need to stick to the pawn shops in Durham. They would probably understand you better. Perhaps you need a hobby or something better to do with your time than posting your nonsense. Let's keep these post's constructive. Jarods Jewelers on Capital Blvd does good jewelry repair but is a bit pricey.

WTH are you reading? Smoking? Etc?

I don't see a thing about engraving in this thread.

Yep, probably my post... not sure why it inspired so much ire, but I suppose there are internet trolls everywhere. I stand by my assertion that the experience was really freaking weird. I'm certainly not a freak for being a very efficient shopper. I've had rings resized before and you're in, you're out, and you trust the jeweler to size it accordingly. Of course you have to sign, but having to sign in multiple places after multiple confirmations felt like overkill. My time is money, and spending 30 minutes with a jeweler to finalize ring sizing specifications was way too much. It certainly didn't inspire any confidence that it was something he was good at or skilled at. Even my husband (who was with me) mentioned that he thought we should go back in and get our rings back as we were walking to the car, and he's never had a ring re-sized.

That said, he did re-size my rings accurately for a good price and I stated that. All of what I said is something I wish I'd known before going there, which is why I figured it was relevant to a recommendation post.

Take a pill, Paralegal. I'm glad you're no longer working in a service industry, you obviously aren't suited to dealing with people.
