So I received my custom ring and I LOVE LOVE LOVE IT! only issues I have, is I feel like if I hit my hand hard and (sometimes in the past I had it happened) that it may chip or diamonds fall off >< Am I being paranoid? I haven’t realized that the setting would be like this where the diamonds stick out and don’t seem to be protected in a way.. let me know what y’all think?

I would get it insured and then wear it with pride. I have known someone to chip their diamond but it’s rare. If you’re worried about the smaller diamonds at least if something happened to them they wouldn’t be as expensive to replace.

Most jewelry stores have free diamond replacements if one falls out so maybe they would cover damage also. Your ring looks amazing I would love to see a top view pic if possible.

I too was so paranoid and definitely slammed my hand into a few things…. get it insured and as you get used to it, you hit it and less and trust it more.

I had that fear too so I went with a design that would protect the diamonds but Even with that I have given my ring a good wack or two since. It freaks me out when that happens so I always take it off when I plAn to work outside and do yard work or when I am cleaning the house. Just one word to the wise if you choose that route always place it somewhere safe, like in a jewelry box. Don’t just leave it near the sink, that’s a disaster waiting to happen. Def insure it, always wise, and most jewelrs will inspect the ring annually free of charge. You will get used to it in time.

ceeceelove : diamonds are pretty tough so I would try not to worry about damaging them that much. I do have one caveat though. In another thread I think you mentioned that you were having your ring made by Moissanite co. If so I would check that the halo stones are really diamonds. Another bee bought a moissy ring (center stone) but paid for genuine diamonds in the setting like you. However when she got her setting checked, I think she said they were actually only moissanite too! Not trying to alarm you but you want to make sure you got what you paid for. I second the request for a top view of your ring 🙂

I think it looks pretty secure style (Post a top down shot maybe?) but like any ring you should take it off when you’re doing heavy work with your hands and get it looked at regularily to make sure the prongs are holding tight.
