we have had another ring cast and have asked the polishing company to pay for this, they have agreed but want us to send them the original ring so that they can scrap it and offset their costs and reduce the liability.I am not inclined to be that generous as they have caused us a lot of inconvenience.
Sadly if they have provided a replacement then they own this ring.
Otherwise you will have 2 rings.
There may be a case for breach of contract but that does not automatically mean you are entitled to two rings.
The whole point of replacing the ring is to put you back into a position you were in before it was damaged.
Therefore in my view, whilst you have a claim for breach of contract you are not entitled, as of law, to keep this second ring as well.
The original one has to go back.
I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
