Pave setting dilemma

It really is hard to see- but I would still be taking it back to the jeweler and finding out what’s up- or at least show them what happened and see if they would replace it.

 

It’s why I won’t get a pave band- I don’t want to have to worry about stuff like that.  And even though no one can see it, it would drive me nuts!

My advice would be to get it insured. Did your new ring come with an appraisal? If not call the jeweler and ask if they will do the appraisal for free since it was purchased there.

Jewelers Mutual/Perfect Circle offers really low rates and includes replacement of stones that fall out as well as “mysterious disappearance,” which means you’re covered if the ring simply gets lost.

We’re paying only $12/month for my ring and bands, which include pave. I figure it’s worth it just for those times when little stones in the setting come out. Even if I only lose one stone every year or two, the insurance is pretty much paying for itself. 

Check them out, they have a calculator where you type in the appraised value of your ring and you can see what insurance would cost.

 

Good luck!

liz.kinneary:  does the ring have a warranty? I would send it back sooner rather than later since it might still be under warranty and you wont have to pay anything.

It probably happened when it was being sized. I’d just go back to the jewelers and show him. He may replace the stone for free since it most likely happened when he was working on it. It’s really not noticeable but if it bothers you then you should definitely call him the sooner the better!  Beautiful ring btw!

In all the years that I have owned pave rings, I have only lost two stones and even then there were reasons. The first was poor workmanship on a ring I bought to house an Old Mine Cut diamond and the other just a few weeks ago when I dropped it on the floor.

I couldn’t find the stone – it’s small – and my jeweller replaced it for free. I have bought many pieces of jewellery from him, so I guess that is one of the perks but the replacement of a stone should not cost you anything but time.

Call them – rock it in the meantime – and take it in when you come down to earth (lol). 

Gorgeous ring – one of the nicests I have seen.

liz.kinneary:  where did you buy it from? They might have a warranty.

Is it pave or shared prong? Looks like the later to me. Either way, sorry to hear this has happened so early, but when it comes to warranty, the sooner you take it back the better. Don’t want them to have an excuse not to fix it. 

edit- just read that there is no warranty. Sorry! I’d contact the seller as I think this is poor from the sellers part.

liz.kinneary:  that could be. Give him a chance to make it right.

I enlarged the pic but it’s on my ipho so it was hard to see the prongs. When I am home tomorrow I’ll take another peek in photoshop and see if I see what u do. Meantime breath your ring is stunning!
