No need to be down on yourself for picking the amethyst- that’s a beautiful stone! But you just need to go talk to the place where you bought it to discuss the setting- it is their fault and they need to help you fix it so this doesn’t happen again.

@Evie19: Agreed!

OP, I think that you chose a wonderful stone and if the setting isn’t working right than it’s the jeweler’s fault. Not yours. I would talk to them and see if they can’t fix the problem…you definitely shouldn’t have to deal with this. I’m sorry…hugs!

That’s strange! I have a white gold band and I never take this thing off… It’s not any different than day 1. I’d definitely make a complaint with the jeweler! White gold and platinum are so similar minus the price difference, maybe you could go with a platinum band and use your same stone! It’ll look the same just be stronger.

 I can totally relate! My mother gave me her diamond when I got engaged (1.20 carats, pear shaped) and Fiance and I had it reset in a new gorgeous setting in rose gold. It gets loose all the time! When I first heard it rattling, I freaked out and went back to have the jeweler (who is very well known and highly respected in his profession) tighten it. A week later… same thing. I have returned to get it tighten 3 or 4 times, and I’m getting really sick of it! Not to mention that I’m scared to death the stone will fall out! The jeweler promises me that even tho it gets loose, there is no danger of it falling out (it has 5 prongs) but still! I think rose gold is soft but still! I wish he had done the prongs in platinum and plated them in Rose gold.

I’m so sorry that’s happening.  πŸ™   I know how frustrating that must be.   I’m guessing the stone wasn’t seated well in the prongs to begin with.  Each prong will have a little teeny notch in it for the stone edge.  Sometimes those aren’t precise and the stone will work itself loose no matter what.  You might want to see if they’ll remake it for you.   I hope since it’s only a month old, they’ll fix it…because that shouldn’t be happening!  Good luck!

I had a very similar setting with a sapphire.  It kept coming loose and I kept taking it back so finally I went in a demanded a new setting.  I think sometimes they are harder to keep tight than prongs.

@sceeder: is this guy the owner of the place? I’m beginning to think he swindled you!

Take it to another jeweler to have it looked at and ask them their opinion. I’d also report this guy to the BBB!

Thats is horrible customer service……Not acceptable. He should not be blaming you at all.

I’m so sorry — I have a couple of amethyst rings in yellow gold that I’ve had for years and years and they’ve never come loose, but I guess I don’t wear them every single day. There were times that I did wear them very often, maybe even every day for weeks. Wow, I’d be really mad if they came loose!
