Oh no! What are you going to do?  I so worried about this, especially with my wedding band.  It has 11 little princess cut stones, and I am so scared I am going to lose one.

About 6 months after we got engaged, I was putting in an earring, and I heard rattling – It ended up being a loose stone in my engagement ring hitting the prongs.

Aw 🙁  You Darling Husband shouldn’t be upset or think he got you a cheap ring – just some settings and designs are more delicate and susecptible to these types of things.  Is there anyway you can get in insured so if this happens in the future it is covered?

Had that happen to me.  I got it replaced for $45.00 at the a small family owned Jewelery store.

That is nothing. I mean it suck believe me I know. I have had 4 yes 4 side diamonds fall out since recieving my ring last  July… (the first one fell out after a WEEK) Nothing you can do but try and keep your warrenty up and when you are walking through the mall anyway have them checked.

I feel your pain.

I know how you feel! My ring has a pave setting and when the hubby and I were out shopping one day I looked down and saw a stone missing!!

We moved about 5 hours away from the family store where we purchased the ring, so I took it to a jeweler here who replaced it for about $25. Then the same stone fell out a few days later. Needless to say I took it back and they sent it out to get replaced and I haven’t had any problems since!

Good luck!

@Baileyh: Wow that really sucks! I didn’t even know you were supposed to check so often. Can you “check” yourself or do you have to bring it into the jeweler? My jeweler will replace anything as long as I bring it in every 6 months. But I would like to know how to check it on my own before anything crazy happens.

I am so afraid of this happening. I have a band that has tons of pave stones and it makes me nervous. I have insurance on it, but I would still hate to have to give it up so that it could be fixed.

What a bummer:( One of mine fell out after being engaged for a grand total of 4 hours. I was sooo annoyed and ever since then I’m so paranoid (I’ve only been engaged since last week). I honestly was thinking of getting a different ring because I don’t want to deal with all the little stones (I have 49 small + my .71 center stone). I have an awesome warranty through my jeweler but if we ever move I don’t know what I’ll do (going to any other jeweler voids the warranty). Plus there was only a 10 day money back agreement and it’s been 16 days since the ring was bought. The only way to change it now is to spend 20% more on a ring as an upgrade and we don’t have that kind of extra money hanging around…plus the ring is really cool looking and unique.

@Baileyh: From what I’ve heard getting a stone replaced shouldn’t cost very much at all depending on the side of the stone. Typically less than $50 when it’s an accent stone.These kinds of rings are just naturally prone to this kind of damage…let your Fiance know it’s just the nature of the beast and it definitely doesn’t make the ring cheap.

@kryje003: If I have another stone fall out anytime soon I am going to demand that they exchange my ring. 4 stones!? I don’t have that kind of patience.

@kperry3: Every so often you can get in a quiet place and tap the band of your ering while holding it close to your ear. If there’s loose stones you should be able to hear them moving (kind of a clinking noise).

🙁 I’m sorry! That happened to my ring too but luckily it was just under a year from when Darling Husband purchased it. It shouldn’t cost too much to fix though.

Im sorry, I’m so scared I’m going to lose one of the stones in my band or my big stone in my engagement ring… that fear made me buy the lifetime warranty. I hope you can get it replaced without a huge expense! good luck =)

@Baileyh: plenty of jewelery stores offer a lifetime replacement/ repair warranty for a fixed price

My ring has a lifetime guarantee, they will replace any stones that fall out, I just have to bring it in every 6 months to be checked/cleaned.

ETA: I DID lose a stone. It came out after I had it sized.  They replaced it no problem.
