I have a JB Star engagement ring ๐Ÿ™‚ JB Star is my FAVORITE designer! I found out about them 2 years ago and I had been loving them ever since, so of course my fiance made sure I got one! For those who don’t know, JB Star is a high end designer out of New York and I think they have been around for over 50 years.

@Dell79:  I asked that same question when we got it and I was assured that with JB Star with the quality of their rings we should have no issues with any stones loosening or falling out. The entire thing is set in platinum so that helps but there are 195 diamonds just in the band and the diamonds are on every surface, basically encrusted, even around the edges. I did pose the loss of stone question to the jewelry store before the purchase and they said that if anything were to happen they would replace anything that needed to be done free and/or send it to JB Star, but that they never have to do that with his rings. So as to this point we will believe them lol and hope that nothing happens to my ring! ๐Ÿ™‚

FYI: We actually were trying to have a replica of another JB Star design made by another jewelry store in the area because JB Star is very expensive and we wanted the look but also try to save money lol. Well, that store was having massive difficulty creating the ring we wanted, JB Star just has such an attention to detail and precision the other store couldn’t match it so my fiance just went out and got me a REAL JB Star and I am sooo happy! Handmade one-of-a-kind ๐Ÿ™‚

I have a JB Star oval ring with halo and micro pave.  Had it for 45 days now. I absolutely love my ring – however, today will be my 2nd trip to the jeweler – first trip was bc ring snagged from almost the beginning, today’s trip is because two days ago one of the micro pave diamonds fell out (different place from where snags occurred). I am not hard on my ring and usually do not wear it around the house.

I, like the others on here, HAD to have a JB Star! The quality is unparalled! Replicas aren’t true replicas because it is near impossible to replicate a JB Star. My ring is 1.03 carats oval, with triple shank, micro-pave. IN LOVE WITH IT! I get TONS of compliments and it sparkles like none other!

I have a much earlier JB Star ring — purchaed in late 2001. I have always had issues with it and would only take it to an authorized dealer for sizing. Needless to say – the ring broke in half. I contacted my jeweler and JB Star. JB Star representitive Tina stated that it was unfair for me to go back after 15 years, it would be $1800 to repair.  I saw someone’s comment about guaranteeing their work, make sure you get it in writing.  My husband went ahead and upgraded mine with another setting – as a late anniversary gift.  My response to JB Star was, they should not advertise “quality” “craftsmanship” and “timelessness” if they cannot produce a platinum ring that can last more than 15 years. My daughter was hoping she could eventually have the original ring, but due to what other jewelers have told me is the contaminated platinum that was in the original setting, it cannot be repaired permanently.
