@weswife:  I had 1 pave set stone fall out of the band on my ering.  Only 3 months after getting engaged and, just like you, don’t put a lot of wear and tear on it.  I don’t even SLEEP with it on!  I expressed some concern about losing the stone since the wedding band we ordered matches the band on the ering exactly – so a ton of little stones with the potential to fall out – and they assured me that this is rare and since I had the ring sized, it could have somehow disrupted that setting (it was the furthest down on the side of the band).

Luckily Mr. S purchased the warranty on the ring so as long as I go in for inspections every 6 months on the setting, Jareds will replace any stone that has gone missing (during normal wear) with zero fees to us.  That makes me feel better but if I lose another stone, I’m going to LOSE it on them.  We didn’t pay this much money just to lose diamonds!!

WOW… I have seen other post on the BEE about this happening with pave stones… I have a simple solitatire with gold bands, and that was one of the reasons why I went that way… Hope you are able to get some resolutoin because that is heart wrenching.

I had a similar problem. It was a design flaw and I ended up having to get an entirely new ring. Sounds like the same might be happening to you 🙁 🙁

My set is similar and I’ve lost 3 (or 4?) diamonds in the past six months from my wedding band.  I’ve been told by two different jewelers that it’s fairly common with this type of setting, unfortunately.  Both recommended the normal stuff: don’t wear it at home/to bed, take it off when you do anything w your hands, etc.  One recommended soldering to prevent the bands rubbing together; the other said that wouldn’t really help – so not sure on that advice.
