FI purchased my ring from a unique place and because of that, I do not have a service plan/warranty. Where could I go to get the prongs checked? Will any jewelry store do this? Do they charge to examine the prongs?

I was out of town once when I noticed that my prongs were loose. I just went into a local jewelry store and asked them if they could check the prongs. They were happy to and didn’t charge me anything. I’m not sure if that’s the norm, but it definitely doesn’t hurt to go in somewhere and ask!

Any jewelry store should be able to check the prongs on your ring at no charge.

My ring is from bluenile (who will check and clean for free… but you have to send it in and i didn’t want to go without my ring). I just stopped into jared’s to get it cleaned and checked and they did it for free while i shopped. 🙂

@Akennedy01: Most rings don’t come with a service plan/warranty unless you go to some chain store.
Any jewler should be able to inspect / reset your ring. For a standard prong-set ring (i.e. not a channel set ring), they usually charge between $30 and $50 (but ask before they do it because after the fact they can set any price they want) but only if they actually have to remove then reset the diamond. An inspection and minor adjustment should be free.

So they can tighten the prongs in twenty minutes or so? It feels like one of the five prongs is a bit loose, maybe slightly bent or something. It is the only prong that is snagging.
