@landerian:  Sorry to hear you’re going through this.  Is there any way you could have a trusted jeweler remake her ring?

@landerian:  Doesn’t seem like you have much to lose if they’re not willing to help pay for repairs or replace the damaged merchandise.  If I were you I’d have all the stones removed, melt down the gold and have someone fabricate a completely different ring.  Although I have heard that pave settings are notorious for losing stones.

@housebee:  +1  I would likely do the same or at least use the diamonds you already have and make a new ring out of them from a jeweler you trust.  Sorry you and your fiance are going through this, OP.

@landerian:  Would you post a picture of the ring?

I think you need to have it remade by a different jeweler in platinum! That should not be happening.

@landerian:  wow that is very strange. How exactly did that happen? If i were the jeweler I think I would question it too. Have you google debeers to see if anyone has had this happen before?

That’s so strange!  wonder of some crazy mistake occurred and the ring isn’t actually platinum. I’m so sorry you guys have had to deal with this crazyness. I just find it so peculiar because I also have a debeers platinum ring with pave stones and have had zero problems even with the abuse it goes through as I wear it at work and I work at a zoo taking care of animals and working with kid.

I know that paves are notoriuos for losing stones, but the weird shaping is strange. I have a ring that is misshapen like that but the ring is about 80 years old and very worn and thin on the back. I think I’d go for a thicker band, if you get it re-done.
