Yes you should be concerned, the prongs aren’t tight enough so it needs to be fixed or the stone could fall out and the prongs will just continue to get looser.

I don’t think that a month in your stone should be wiggling at ALL. Mine doesn’t budge at all that I can tell. I’d at least contact them and see what they say. I’d want those prongs tightened!

Your stone should never wiggle! Get it to a jeweler ASAP to get the prongs tightened.

get thee to a jeweler!  Your prongs need to be tightened – a loose stone is more likely to fall out.

Your stone should not wiggle, even a little.  I would get that fixed and not wear it until it is.

DEFINITELY get it looked at! 

The same thing happened to me and I was convinced everything was fine.  When I finally took it to the jeweler he said he was surprised it hadn’t fallen out — there was a sizable crack in the platinum.

Also, if the ring was made of a single casting the prongs will be weak. If they cut off the head and replace it with a 4 prong dyestruck head, it will be stronger and firm and will not wiggle. I had the same issue with my first 4 prong setting and ended up melting ot twIce to remake it

I would absolutely get it fixed ASAP, and not wear it until then. I also have a four prong ring and noticed that my center stone was a little wiggly after about a month. I took it to the jeweler over lunch one day and they fixed it it seconds and I haven’t had a problem since (almost two years now). The jeweler said that sometimes stones “settle” a bit in the setting after they’re worn so they’ll get loose, but then once the prongs are tightened its not a problem again. That was definitely the case for me.

definitely get it checked, your stone shouldnt wiggle.  I have my ring  over a year and no wiggle, but I go in religioulsy every six months to get it checked to make sure my prongs are ok.
