Thanks for your patience. When someone has entered into a contract for work, where the main focus is labour and skill, the Consumer Rights Act 2015 says that the work must be carried out with reasonable care and skill (to the same standard as any reasonably competent person in that trade or profession);
If there are problems with the standard of work, or any of the above, you will have certain rights:
1. The trader should either redo the parts of the service which are inadequate or perform the whole service again at no extra cost to you. This must be done within a reasonable time and without causing you significant inconvenience.
2. If redoing the work is impossible or cannot be done within a reasonable time or without causing significant inconvenience, you can claim a price reduction. The price reduction would depend on how severe the issues are and could be as much as the full cost of the work.
I the ring can be repaired without affecting its quality or appearance they should be allowed to do that. However, if a repair is not possible or will not provide the desired results a replacement can be requested. So it really depends on what is possible with a repair.
Please take a second to leave a positive rating for the service so far by selecting 3, 4 or 5 stars. I can continue answering follow up questions and in particular can also discuss the steps that must be followed if a resolution cannot be reached. Don’t worry, there is no extra cost and leaving a rating will not close the question and we can still continue this discussion. Thank you
