You should get it fixed before it gets worse. If it’s a hard stone like a diamond, it can gradually cut it’s way through the metal and eventually fall out if it’s not properly secured. I had to get my prongs tightened shortly after I got engaged. It’s a very cheap fix. I took it to a local jeweler and they actually did it for free.

Your stone should NOT move in its setting at all. If it does, it needs to be in for repairs. I recently noticed when I absentmindedly touched the top of my stone that it moved. It was very slight, but unmistakable. I took it off and had it repaired immediately. I wouldn’t put it back on until it had been tightened. Don’t let anyone tell you that the stone moving is normal because it is not.

Take that puppy in to be fixed! The last thing you want is for your stone to fall out!

Dakota2:  Depends on how “sturdy” the prongs are. They shouldnt have to if the ring is brand new but maybe the prongs werent strudy enough to begin with… i would let them fix it…it’ll be worth it, nothing worst than a stone falling out and have to replace that verses paying 100 bucks to fix the prongs…

Who set the stone to begin with? I would go back there and politely demand that it be fixed. It is NOT normal for a stone to rock,  tilt or spin in its setting.

If your ring is brand new take it back to the jeweller you got it from, they should fix it for free.

As PPs have said, the rocking, however slight, is not good.

Did you get a warranty? They should fix it for free, if so…

If it’s a bezel it should be okay (depends on now much it moves). My jeweller said that it’s impossible to make a bezel air tight without breaking the stone, so it’ll always move a tiny tiny bit, but since it’s fully enclosed the stone won’t fall out. Mine was wobbling a bit so I brought it back, they adjusted it and made it as tight as they could without breaking the stone.

If it’s a prong setting though then it shouldn’t be moving at all.

Dakota2:  take it to another jewler for a second opinion.  I was given my grandmothers wedding ring and was in the area of a Jared’s. They told be it would be $35 per prong to re build.  That came to over $600 to “fix” the ring (one stone was wiggling) drove another 20 min to the place I got my e ring and was told $100 to re build all the prongs (18 or 19 I think)   So I saved $500 and my ring is good! 

Second story, I got a little .20 princess solitaire from a pawn shop but a prong was bent. Walked into a little downtown jeweler and aske how much it would be.  He went in back came out 30 seconds later an said I owed him nothing. It was just bending a prong. Over 9 months later it’s still inplace. 

I second going back to where you got it if you trust them. if not it shouldn’t be expensive to fix one prong

Mines rocked for a while, theny diamond fell out. The jeweler told me that one ofy prongs was loose.  Not broke but lose, when he tried to tighten it, it broke. I then decided to upgrade to a 6 prong, just for peace of mind.

No, and it shouldn’t.
