Ya you should be able to get the stone reset by a Jeweller.  Do you have a regular place you deal with (we for example have a family run jeweller / goldsmith who’s been in biz for decades).  That makes me far more comfy than dealing with say a chain store.  And they do the work onsite, so you can get an Estimate right away, no sending your jewellery away etc.

Hope this helps,

Oooh, that sucks!  If it’s a melee-sized diamond, a local jeweler should be able to replace it for you for under $100…it happened to a tiny diamond in my mom’s e-ring and it was $80 to replace it.  Not a big deal at all.  Good luck!

To replace the diamond that fell out, total for the stone and labor.  Each melee-sized diamond, I was informed by my jeweler awhile back, is really cheap – like 10 bucks or something.  It’s the labor that you’re paying for, to carefully replace the tiny stone without affecting the main stone.  Make sense?

TO @kendra389: Are they insured ?

Having Insurance like Jeweller’s Mutual (or some better Home Insurance Policies) means that you’d be covered in the event that you ran into an unscrupulous Jeweller / Goldsmith.

Such insurance covers you for stuff like having your items Stolen, Lost, Damage or Mysterious Disappearance.

Obviously, if you were to insure it now, you couldn’t make a claim on the Damage aspect… but you’d be protected against the other elements

Which might give you peace of mind while it is out of your hands being repaired

Hope this helps,

I would ask your SO where they came from because some jewelers void their own warranty if someone else does work. Also, whoever made them may repair it for free minus shipping which could end up cheaper than having someone local do it.

@kendra389:  yeah it’s highly possible that whoever he got them from would charge you to fix them also, but some jewelers will fix pave for free or even cheaper than an independent jeweler if you send it back. Or it could void any warranty they might offer (which for some is none). So my point is, don’t be surprised if there is no warranty or anything, but it’s always good to check first to see what your best option is.

@kendra389:  Also I would insure the jewlery or see if its under warentee so next time this happens it will be covered if they do any damage to them by accident.
