I suppose if they’ve had the same size stone available and had the tech to engrave it, they could copy your serial number. It would be illegal for them to do it but everything is possible.

Yeah, it probably wouldn’t be that difficult with the right equipment, though I feel like that kind of equipment wouldn’t just be on hand unless you’re in the business of ingraving stones/stealing diamonds.

How often do you think this happens?

I was under the impression that having anything engraved on a diamond makes it worthless? All (natural) diamonds are unique, so a qualified gemologist should be able to indentify a stone based on its color and unique imperfections. When you have your ring/diamond inspected, it should be a multi-page report basically listing everything you need to know about your specific diamond. If you suspect that your diamond has been switched, you shuold be able to take this report to a gemologist who should be able to tell you if the diamond in your ring matches your insurance report.

Again, this is only for natural diamonds/gemstones, I don’t know about lab-created stones.

And also, it takes a long time to reset a ring completely, so if you take in your ring for a general cleaning, that only takes a few minutes and there wouldn’t be time to make a switch.
