Hi everyone!! My engagement ring is breaking and it’s so sad 😔😔😔 I got engaged early September, and I have 2 rows of pave stones on the side. The day after I got engaged, I noticed 2 stones missing… I brought it to my fiancés attention and he shrugged it off. Since then, 5 more stones have fallen out. And if that wasn’t bad enough, today part of my center stone chipped away!!!! What should I do??? I’m heartbroken and everytime I look at my ring, I feel like crying 😔😔 I asked my fiancé to bring it back but he said there’s no way to fix a chipped diamond, and it’s my fault 😔😔😔

Thats so horrible – I feel for you!
You have only had it since Sept?? Do you know what jeweller the ring was from? I suggest you definitely take it to them, surely a ring shouldnt be failing in that little amount of time. Does you ring come with a ‘care plan’ or anything similar such as a warranty?

Are you sure it’s a real diamond ring? It just sounds a bit too fragile for it to be a diamond and my chipping and falling apart! 🙁 that’s awful that you Fiance would say it’s your fault and nothing you can do. Definitely take it to the jeweler that’s not acceptable! Also do you have it insured?

Do you happen to know where he purchased the ring from? Maybe you can just take the ring in to the store instead and either get a quote and/or shop around with other jewelers, or see if they can replace the stones for free. I have 2 rows of micro pavé diamonds in both bands of my set and our jeweler said that as part of purchasing through them, if the pavé diamonds ever do fall out, to just bring it back, and they’ll replace the stones free of charge.

Yeah, not good enough. Back to where it came from for replacement or fixing!

after I showed my mom the 2 missing stones, she insisted the setting was made out of fake diamonds, because she couldn’t believe how fast they fell out, and we took it to a different jeweler to get it appraised and the diamonds are real. I don’t know what else could be wrong.

Is there a warranty? Can you take it back to the jewelers so they can at least secure the other diamonds so additional ones won’t fall out?

OH my gosh, no way would I be ok with this. A diamond engagement ring should not be falling apart like that, especially if you’ve only had it since September. Do you have pics of the damage?

you shouldn’t have lost so many pave diamonds in such a short time. That usually means the setting is poorly done. Sometimes badly done ring sizing can cause this to happen with pave diamonds.
I’m honestly surprised at your fiancé’s reaction. If I’d dropped lots of money on a ring I’d be peeved that the diamonds kept falling out. I’d be back at the jewelry store getting very irate demanding for it to be fixed. Did he tell you where he got it from? It honestly sounds suss that he isn’t more upset. Did he buy second hand ? Nothing wrong if he did but that may account for his unwillingness to go back and complain to the place he bought it from.
As for your center diamond… You may have knocked it unwittingly and caused it to chip. It can and does happen if it’s hit in a certain spot. A friend of mine did this to her princess cut. Another thing I’ve read is that if your diamond has a certain types of inclusions in it, it can make your diamond weak and can cause it to chip/crack/shatter easily.
I would definitely find out more about the source of your ring and take it from there.

Oh my hunny I feel for you!…Why your Fiance is acting like it’s your fault is beyond me…you need to have a come to Jesus meeting with him…my setting got damaged yesterday due to substantial impact on my halo…but for it to be falling apart after 3 months without cause is startling and you need to take that back to a jeweler to replace pave and maybe see if they need to change your setting completely you need to get on that asap in case of warranty time frame…

Why on earth your Fiance doesn’t care about something he paid lots of money for breaking is beyond me. And why he is blaming you for it is even more beyond me. I agree with PP, is there a chance he bought it from a pawn shop or he inherited an heirloom? Maybe that could explain why he seems resistant to taking it back and having it fixed/refunded?

My first thought was it isn’t a real diamond ring too. I have a topaz engagement ring which I’ve had for… 6 months maybe. Topaz is a soft stone but it looks good as new so I’d imagine it isn’t that easy for diamonds to chip? The setting also shouldn’t be damaged after such a short amount of time either.
I’m also frustrated that your Fiance brushed it off. Doesn’t he care that he spent money on it and it’s now broken?
I really feel for you. I’d take it to a reputable jeweller and see what they say about it. Could your Fiance hve accidentally bought a fake ring?

It’s your…fault? I am less concerned about the ring, and more concerned about that remark…was that out of character for him? Does he usually blame you for things that go wrong?

Wow I would not be happy at all! I’ve never known a real diamond to chip unless its of really poor quality that’s why they are such sort after stones “diamonds are forever” take it back to where he got it from

Whoah Whoah… hold on a second. He said it’s your fault and he won’t bring it back?! That’s insane. You should ask about the insurance on the ring and take it to the store immediately. Some bees on here have eternity bands and haven’t lost a diamond from them from normal wear. I hope you get this sorted out bee!
