Hi Bee’s I am very upset with my wedding band and e-ring. I have not even wore my wedding band since I am not married yet, it just sits in our safe. However when I was checking it out one of the diamonds is seriously loose and the inside of the band is not stamped with the 18k stamp, this probably happened after they sized it but I am confident that they can fix these things. My e-ring however is another story entirely I have only had the ring since September and this is my second time I am needing to take it in because the diamond is slightly loose in the setting. I am concerned that this could get worse and I could lose my diamond. I am wondering if I should demand a different setting as this one seems to be defective or get something with 5-6 prongs instead of four the band is 18k gold with a platinum head. I thought platinum was supposed to be more durable metal, so much for that. Also I was considering changing the band to something with round diamonds going down the sides to match the wedding band. Do you think at the least the jeweler should supply me with a new setting?
Here’s my e-ring (sorry don’t have pic of wedding band).

Actually, I had a jeweler tell me that platinum is very malleable. I don’t know how true that is, but she said it’s less likely to wear down, but more likely to warp.

I’m pretty sure most rings have a platinum head. Do you have some kind of diamond replacement thing if it falls out? I would probably get it fixed again and if it is still a problem see if you can get a new head or new ring maybe.

it sounds like your jeweler did a terrible job. they are supposed to tighten and inspect all prongs after resizing, and they are supposed to restamp the metal if it needs to be. I would demand that they fix your rings for free. then take those rings to a different jeweler to inspect your prongs and make sure your stones are secure.
after that, never go back to that first jeweler ever again. did you use somebody local, or is it from a big chain store?

I would go for a 6 head prong & call it day. This makes twice now & I wouldn’t want a third time. At least if one of the prongs was to ever get loose on the new setting you would still have 5 other prongs there to keep your diamond safe! It sounds like you also want to spice up the setting with small diamonds down the band, I say go for it!

Where did you get your rings from? I had the exact same problem with my e-ring.
