vip0802:  Beautiful set! I would go ahead and fix the missing stone and wait and see how you feel about the setting later if you’re not 100%. It sounds like you love it as is, so give it some time before you make a major change. It’s only been 8 months…

I’d fix it and keep it.  If your mom is a jeweler, you sound like the perfect canidate to have a fussy ring since she can help you fix it. 😉 What does she think?

That seems a bit drastic of a response to have to losing a tiny setting stone, IMO. If you like your ring the way it is, do you even really love bezel sets, or do you just think it will be more secure? It would completely change the look of your set, and not for the better, IMO. The sparkle factor, especially from the bands, will be seriously reduced. Anyway, I agree with previous posters. I would have the ring repaired and see how it goes. Unless it is popping stones all the time, I wouldn’t have it re-set. It seems you love what you have and that a bezel would be a second choice chosen only for durability.

vip0802:  My E ring is similar to your side diamonds and this summer i lost one too! didnt notice until my fingers were seperated. ive had mine for 6 years now and this has been the only issue. Needless to say i had it fixed with no hassel and everything was good to go. i say keep your ring how it is. its GORGEOUS the way it is. i dont care for the setting your wanting to switch it to.

vip0802:  I didn’t reset– but I went with bezel from the start so I didn’t have to worry about things like this.  I don’t htink wedding jewelry should be an inconvenience or something you have to worry about– that’s what formal pieces for formal outtings are for, IMO– while I want my wedding rings to be beautiful, I want then to be practical since I do consider them everyday jewelry.
