i have been engaged now for almost a year..so i habe been wearing my ring everyday and barely take it off…im sitting at work this morning and realized that one of the prong things that holds the diamond in is bent…i saw it and cried…might add to i have been having a bad week at work and i was hoping for a better day today until i saw my ring…i am a little clumsy and hit my hands a lot so i probably hit it on my desk at work and didnt even realize it…so i took it off incase the diamond falls out…i kno the ring didnt cost a whole lot but i am still so upset and my finger feels naked and i just want it fixed…i wonder if it can be fixed without breaking it…i have a promise ring i can wear in place of it but its not the same…sry for the long run on paragraph but anyone else experience this?

This happened to me a few months ago, I knocked my ring on a subway turnstile and the prong bent it was like sideways.
I took it off until I could bring it to my jeweler (better safe than sorry). He was able to fix it while I waited 🙂 Good luck.

ok thats good that you could sit right there while he fixed it! I dont wan to have to send it away to be fixed for days and worry about getting the right ring back (I worry a lot about little things lol)

@Bunni0929: Yeah it’ll feel weird not wearing your ring for a little while, but you’d rather have it fixed as soon as you can than have the diamond fall out.
I’ve had my engagement ring for a while and it broke! I’m the same as you, I wear mine every day and never take it off, but I’m pretty rough with my jewellery, so that’s probably why it broke. I took it to get fixed and had another ring from FH that I wore when I went out, but other than that I just dealt with not wearing THE ring for a couple of days until I got it back.
And now just a couple of months ago one of the prongs has completely broken off! Haha. I should probably get that fixed 😛
The jewellers know what they are doing (and at least your prong is still there – I think I might have to fork out a penny or two to replace the one I’ve snapped off, because I’d need to pay for the extra bit of gold). Don’t worry.
