We bought a wedding ring back at the beginning of August. It is a platinum ring with pave diamonds. But my husband was looking at it yesterday and it is noticeably not round. It's more of an oval shape. I don't do anything out of the ordinary, not hitting it on anything, etc. Is this normal for it to bend like that? It also has gotten quite a few scratches on it but when I bought it they told me the platinum was scratch free. We called the company about that, and they said as long as they are just surface scratches they will come out with a buff and clean? When I bought it, I thought scratch free meant scratch free.

Are you sure it is platinum?
My platinum wedding band has stayed circular for 33 years. And they had a tough time resizing it when I got arthritic knuckles. It is extremely strong!

The only rings of mine that HAVE gotten more oval are the ones that have gold and/or silver in them....

Okay... a website says platinum, but that is no guarantee that the ring is actually platinum.

What is the ring stamped? Has a real jeweler taken a look at it?

The ring is stamped Shane Co(the jeweler) and PT950. We got it from an actual jeweler, and they told us it was platinum as well. I dont have my paperwork with me thats why I'm going off the site and what they told us.

First, if the Jewelers told you that platinum is scratch free, then they straight out lied to you.
Second, the reason the ring is oval cause you probably had it sized and it was always oval after you had it sized. You just didnt notice it at that time. I'm assuming your finger is smaller than a size 7 cause most rings come in a standard size of 7 and when they sized it down, the had to bend the ring at the bottom and not to disturb the top cause of the diamonds on the top. That's why the ring is oval.

No, my finger is not smaller than a size 7. I think it was either right at a 7 or we got it in a 7.5. I have short fat fingers. But we would have noticed if it was oval then too because we couldn't pick it up for 2 days so still don't know. We are actually going and talking to them tonight and see what they say about it.

Why then could you not pick it up for two days? Like said, if you're a size 7, then the ring in the showcase should have fitted you and no sizing was needed so you should have been able to walk home with it right away.

It was either smaller than a 7 or like I said it may have been a 7.5 so it may have been sized up but not down. I think my ring was a 6 at the store.
