i´m so glad I´m back!! i´ve dearly missed looking at your beautiful e-rings. i try to stay away from this page for a couple of weeks so that when i return i have loads of new posts to read and lots of new bling pics to see. Anyway, i was wondering what is the worst thing that has happened to your ring since you got it….?? The thing is, i´ve read several posts of people who say their diamond or sapphire have shattered/ chipped after only a little banging around (which is very normal if you wear your e-ring on a daily basis) and i have to confess this really frightens me. I wore my ring to bed a little while ago and accidentaly bumped it on my wooden headboard during the night and woke up completely worried….(i have a diamond).i louped it for about an hour in the morning and finally decided i hadn´t harmed it at all but still i hate being so paranoid!! i´ve had my ring for 7 months now….when will i stop worrying?? i NEED TO HEAR STORIES WITH HAPPY ENDINGS!! SO…..HAVE YOU GOT ONE FOR ME??
OH AND heres a pic of my ring. A sequel to my previous post….your ring THEN and NOW.
THIS IS NOW

I have had my ring for over 10 months, gets banged around a little bit, but nothing bad has happened to it 🙂

Love your band! I’ve never seen one like it.
I’ve been lucky so far. The worst is that I’ve dropped it like… 2-3 feet onto a semi-hard surface. It has some very light wear on the exposed underside of the band and could use a good steam cleaning to get at thise nooks I can’t quite reach but is overall in pretty great shape yet, let’s hope it stays that way. Knock on wood!

i lost a diamond 3 months after i got it. the jewelry said it’s pretty common with my type of ring. i was really paranoid about losing another one (and i still worry a bit), but it hasn’t happened since. it’s gotten a fair share of scratches tho :/

I lost a diamond after I knocked my ring fairly hard and it bent (So probably lucky I was wearing it or my finger may have sustained some damage!)

I once thought a small diamond had fallen out of it’s setting – but not out of the ring.. turned out it was a tomato seed because someone doesn’t remove her ring when she’s cooking. The band has also lost some of the whiteness of the white gold, although I actually like the warmer tone it has now.

While getting my hair done for our e-shoot I became frantic when I noticed a diamond was missing. FI and I looked at upside and downside and backside and couldn’t figure it out. He got his pocked knife out and started picking at…to my horror! It has a warranty or whatever so I figured if it lost a diamond we can’t be scratching it up or they’ll blame us. Turns out some of the mascara from my falsies had gotten on it. He had thought there was something stuck on it but I was sure it was missing a small diamond. Phew!!

My SO tried to toss my ring to me and totally misjudged the distance and threw it right into the glass window! Somehow it was fine, probably because the little diamonds are just chips but I was so scared my aquamarine would crack!

I dropped mine out of excitement within the first ten minutes of being engaged. Upon said dropping (which was on soft packed dirt…so this definitely shouldn’t have happened), the two carat sapphire popped out, and then later a little diamond. I looked like Charlie Brown when he’s bummed out the rest of the weekend. That being said though, it could have fallen out in a much worse place (i.e. the pool, walking around and not noticing), so it definitely could have been worse. Either way, we flew home, spoke to the jeweler (who was crazy embarrassed and gave us money back–we didn’t ask for this…I shouldn’t be dropping my ring), and everything turned out just fine!

You’ll love this. About 2 weeks after getting my engagement ring, I decided to paint my nails. All was going well until the bottle of dark purple nail polish somehow stuck on the brush/top part causing me to pick up the bottle… Reactions set in and I made some sort of weird jerking motion… Long story short I got purple nail polish ALL over my engagement ring, floor and couch!! I have a halo, too so the nail polish was all in between everything. I was HORRIFIED. I used nail polish remover, but I still had to take my ring to my jeweler for a couple more cleanings. It’s a hilarious story now, but I was in tears at the time, and my fiance was freaking out, too.

Hm… mine’s pretty bad, but it does have a happy ending! Just weeks after I got engaged, I was at my parents house, and on APRIL 1ST I slammed my ring finger hand in a sliding door in my parents kitchen. The ring was squashed against my finger, cutting off my circulation, the center stone as well as about half of the pavé band were gone. I was so in shock that I don’t think I even screamed or cried (that came later, when I had to tell my fiancé about it! He was very understanding…) Happy ending: we found EVERY diamond (even the teeny tiny pavé stones!) and the jewelery store we bought it from remade the entire ring! Needless to say, I was a bit paranoid for a few months (still am a bit…)

1. I had to have my former set cut off (not my original wedding ring which sits tucked away and I can’t wear due due to allergy/comfort and never had an original “ering”) when I smashed my hand and it got very swollen, so rings were cutting of circulation. I now have a “thing” about tight rings and need to size them up to be loose.
2. I developed allergies to my previous rings. This worked out fine as I got some rings that are much more me and my true forever rings.
3. I found a small scratch chip on table of my forever rings and am still not sure how it got there as I am quite careful. I must have knocked it. This again worked out well, as I love my new stone (the scratch drove me too crazy to leave) and the redone bezel work ever more than my old one.
I also lost a melee stone from my previous set but that was a quick fix.

Well, mine is kind of funny and not serious but I will share anyway:
One day at work I happened to glance down at my ring and notice a cloudy, white spot on the stone. I FLIPPED out internally, imagined calling my fiance, calling Moissanite Co. and telling them off, etc.
But luckily I decided to try rinsing it off first … and the white, cloudy substance came right off. Turns out it was alfredo sauce from my lunch. (face palm).

I lost my center stone last weekend. I was teaching CPR and I think I banged it on the bag of dummies and bent a prong. Lovely. I didn’t realize until I was home either and even though we crawled around on the floor of the conference room loooking for it, we never found it. FI contacted the Etsy seller who made the ring and she replaced the diamond and reset it in a more secure setting on my original band…. at no charge. It’s a small uncut diamond so wasn’t worth much money but it sucked SOOOOOO bad. I love my ring. I was in tears, and FI was surprisingly not all that mad. Just got the replacement one last night though and it is beautiful.

I got to work one morning having to use the bathroom REALLY badly, so I rushed into a stall, and in the struggle of trying to fling my bag off my shoulder, I knocked my left hand, and the ring, up against the tile of the bathroom wall. I gasped, looked at my ring, and saw a chip! NOOOOOO!!!
I went to Jared that day to get the replacement process started. The associate took the ring away, and came back a few minutes later asking me if I could still see the chip. Hmmm….nope! Turns out it wasn’t a chip, but a sliver of super glue! Haha! I’d been working on a project the night before with super glue, but I had my ring off. I guess a little bit must have made its way onto the diamond when I handled the project after finishing it.
It was the darndest thing; it really looked and felt like a groove in the diamond! I was soooo relieved. I’ve been extra careful ever since, both with my arm flailing and use of super glue.
