My fiance proposed with this beautiful vintage inspired ring. (Pictures attached) It was purchased at an independent jewelry store that has a jeweler on site every day. It is stamped 14K inside the band and the paperwork that came with it describes it as 14K white gold. It was originally a very small size and the store sized it up about 4 sizes to fit me. After wearing it about a month, I noticed that the piece added on the band for sizing was no longer shiny. In fact, I can run my fingernail along the band and feel a ridge where the dull and shiny meet up. I will be taking the ring back to the store soon but want to know what caused this. Is it poor quality or workmanship? Is it that the piece added isn't really 14K white gold? I'm also concerned about the matching wedding band. Please help!

Karen From Roseville asks....
Hello Karen, The discoloration of the ring can be because the added metal is not 14 karat gold. Hav....
