@masterteee2013:  Was a warranty or care plan purchased with your ring? Mine has a lifetime warranty and they will replace the small diamonds for free.

I’ve had this happen and the store fixed it. Do you have any sort of protection plan through them? Also, did you have to have it resized?

@masterteee2013:  The fact that it was 6k doesnt mean diamonds wont fall out. Good quality means its less likely but not impossible. When you wear your ring and how rough you are with it also play a part. Pave settings tend to lose a diamond once in a while. its not too big of a deal, is your ring insured? My friend had a small diamond fall out and her insurance paid for it.

I didn’t want to scare you but I had mine resized (a size and a half smaller) and I lost 4 stones in the first 9 months I had it. But it was pave, not prong set. The store really worked with us though and replaced the setting and I haven’t had any problems since (about 8 months). Some stores automatically come with a guarantee on the setting so even if you didn’t buy a plan they may fix it for free.

Actually, this is pretty common with pave…  It really needs to be babied.  I have not lost a stone on my pave ring (yet, knock wood) but I literally wear it to go out for dinner and shopping, not to do anything with my hands, and I take it off as soon as I get home.  I would not file a claim, it will jack up insurance.  It will likely happen again but it should not be that exepnsive to fix, like less than $100.  If it came off a prong, you likely hit it on something.

Yeah, don’t go through insurance for something so small. You probably have a deductible anyway and it’s not worth the risk of possibly raising your rates, which would cost more in the long run than just replacing it. You jeweler may replace it for free or maybe not, but either way you should just go directly to them.

In the future, as other posters have mentioned, you will need to be more careful with your ring if you don’t want to lose any more stones. People don’t realize that rings with pave bands aren’t really meant to be worn 24/7. I wouldn’t shower with it, clean with it, sleep with it, etc. Believe it or not, I’ve heard that sleeping with it on can cause some of the most damage.
