To be slightly expected with an antique stone. Its unlikely the damage on the bottom of the stone is from after it’s set. So its an older stone, set that way to mask/contain the damage. 

Here is a thread on PS about a chipped sapphire. They think its not worth damaging the setting to pull the stone out to repolish, but YMMV.

Yes! Fix the prongs and wear it proudly. I’d find a jeweller who specializes in antiques, preferably not a regular mall jeweller (jared, peoples, etc).

Absolutely go to an independent jeweler. Avoid mall stores!
