I would just have the missing stone replaced. This way you still have the ring, theres just that one stone that is new.

@shyviolette: Aw, bummer! It’s good that you found the stone though, but I’m not sure what you can do with it if it’s chipped. You mentioned using the other stones/metal for something else later, but can’t you guys go get a new aquamarine to fill the lost one? It should be a relatively simple fix.

Or, you can save the ring for later and sub out all the stones for others (mother’s ring or things of that nature).

Aw I’m sorry! Having it made into something else is a great idea though!

i lost a diamond from my ering while swimming (ever tried to find a diamond in an olympic sized swimming pool??) so i understand how upsetting it is but why not have the stone replaced?

Aw!  I’m sorry the stone was chipped. 🙁

You could maybe have a three stone ring made using the same stones, or you could use the three stones and alternate them with two diamonds and have a five stone ring?

Or you could use the metal and the three stones to make a three stone necklace?

If you want to continue to wear it, take it to a jeweler and simply have the chipped stone replaced.  Replacing the one stone might be the best option since you’re so used to wearing it.

Oh no! I would be so upset if the pearl fell out of the ring I wear everyday; I can just imagine how upset you are! If it were me though, I would just get the one stone replaced so you can keep on wearing it.

I would replace the stone but still keep the damaged one. Maybe you could do something else with that one? 

So sorry to hear this happened, I hope it works out.

Awww that sucks 🙁  I would definitely look into seeing how much it would be to just replace the stone!  It might be worth it.

It sucks that you lost a stone but amazing that you found it! Crazy stuff like that happens to me all the time too though.

Definitely just replace the stone, and have the prongs on the other stones checked while you’re at it 🙂 I wouldn’t have believed I found that stone either!

you could probaly have them replce the damaged stone into the ring and adjust the settings for it. it wont be perfect but it will be your ring.

I managed to “break” my proposal ring a week after getting my e-ring (SO wanted a ring to propose with and we then we chose a ring together – was gonna use proposal ring as a wedding band but metals clashed *sigh* sorry off topic) anyway back to the point… I managed to catch the ring in a drawer and bent the ring slightly as I went to straighten it on my desk I heard a “crack” and 2 little stones popped out. This happened about 5 weeks ago I finally got over my sadness and took it into a jeweller and it is an easy fix… Granted I still had the stones so they are only charging a small amount to reset them, but as long as it wasn’t a huge stone it should be an inexpensive way to get your sentimental ring back to looking good as new. As an aside I took the opportunity to also resize my ring while I was at it so when I get it back it will be 10 times more comfortable hahaha (it was too big for my pinky but too small for my ring finger, I just dealt with it cos I was so excited he got it for me :))

 

ooops sorry long reply to basically just say: take it to the jeweller and get a price to replace the stone hahaha
