If your ring is under warranty or insured it might be covered. Check with wherever you bought it from and with insurance. If not, any jeweler can probably easily replace it but you’d have to pay for it.

Bring it to a jeweler to fix it, it isn’t a big job.

Not sure if you’re talking about melee or a larger sidestone. However, it’s not uncommon for pavé/melee to fall out, especially if your ring is not Leon Megé or similar quality.  It’s a pretty common repair, and you may be under warranty.  

If it is pavé, I don’t know if you’ve been cleaning your ring in an ultrasonic or not but most jewelers would recommend against that as it can loosen pavé set stones.

I had a wedding band resized that really shouldn’t have been resized. 4 diamonds fell out. Small diamonds are pretty cheap. The jeweler replaced them for free and shored up the ring as I had put a good deal of business their way.

stardarksky :  bring it in to the jewler where you purchased it.  Mine has lost a couple over the years, and they’ve always replaced them for free.  If they charge, a tiny melee should only cost about $15 worth of material, and maybe half hour of labor, so all in about $40 or so.

Definitely bring it to the jeweller. Depending on if its a side stone or not it might be cheap or free to repair like someone else said depending on if they warranty their work. I am missing a diamond from my halo and it will be about 50 to replace so I don’t plan on dinging my insurance for that. They can inspect it to make sure no other stones are loose at the same time 🙂
