I knew I had a twisted prong, from tripping over my own feet, walking into the garage to change out the cat box and I wanged my ring on the doorframe which so much force that I actually had a bruise on my finger from the band jamming into it..ouch…but the stone wasn’t loose or anything, so the next time I took it to Shane Co to be cleaned and checked, they told me the prong was twisted, but holding strong.
Last week I smacked the dumb thing on the fridge, got it caught in a quilt and while I was fiddling with it, notice a tiny bit of play in the setting and made a mental note to take it in…whelp, I just klonged it on my desk putting a pen in my drawer and that’s the end of that….damn thing is looser than a first graders front tooth…
Guess I know where I’m going after work….bleh.

@babypearls: …I’ve been married for over five years, and I wear it everyday and while I sleep….I knocked the stone clean out of the setting once before about…three years ago….so my poor ring takes a licking….I have it set pretty high anyway, and it’s an emerald cut….so I’ve only got four prongs holding that thing down, take one of them out and its GAME OVER.
On an awesome, bright side of the situation side note:
They didn’t have all these crazy awesome heads like you can get now….it was just some prongs shoved in a band and WHAM…engagement ring…so I think I might treat myself to one of them new fangled jobs like all the other Bees got….just cause.

@Nona99: I am like this, I endup whacking my hand on everything. When the time comes for choosing a ring it will have to be a case of choosing the least breakable ring.

I’m also a klutz. I swear since I’ve gotten engaged I’ve done more damage to my hand than ever before. I actually told my FI that while I thought gold was pretty, it would save us more money in the long run if he had it set in platinum or palladium because I apparently have a shocking lack of spatial awareness.

@Nona99: And this is the reason I specifically told the SO that I did not want a solitaire. I whack my watch and other rings ALL the time, so I know this ring will be no different.

@emmrr3: …meh, get the ring you want and make sure to buy the warranty.
@beeintraining: I usually do pretty good with this thing considering how high I’ve got it set….but, I have been wearing it every day for almost six years….that’s a lot of wear for anything.
@aithinne: I’m a solitaire kind of girl…always was, this is way better than the time I knocked the diamond clean out of the setting and sent it soaring through the air in my office, only to be caught by a co-worker and after we both looked at each other in total shock…we broke into hyena like laughter over the whole thing because it was so bizarre!
@asianbarbie: Warranteed! Lifetime on any and everything purchased and set by Shane Co….unless I want one of them new fangled heads…which I kind of do…then I have to buy it, but they’ll set it and stuff for free.
