I have a halo ring (I am actually on my second halo setting 🙂 and I would lose a stone out of my old ring, and now my new ring, every few months. Have you had this happen, and if so, how often? I think I am pretty hard on things so it could be my fault. I just want to see if this is fairly normal. Thanks!

I’ve never lost a stone out of either of my rings, and I’ve worn the engagement ring for about 3.5 years and my wedding ring for 2 years. I’m pretty clumsy, but maybe the stones are just set really tight on my bands? Knock on wood!

I never lose a stone on my ring, but also don’t have a halo. The diamonds on my band are channel set, and it is very difficult for stones to fall out of that setting. I would say it is probably not a good thing that you have stones falling out all of the time. Maybe you should get a different setting?

I assume they are pave?
Pave does need more care. You should avoid ultrasonic cleaners, take them off for things that may stress the rings (working out, working with tools, even sleeping IMO). Even holding a steering wheel too tight can add stress! If you are not taking care of them, it is normal to lose stones now and then. If you are, then it is probably a little less normal to lose them as often as you are.
Poor workmanship/cheaper settings can also increase risk of losing stones significantly, as well as certain metals (a softer platinum alloy for example, especially on thinner shanks). Resizing also puts the stones at risk following the resizing as it compromises the pave setting.

I have pave and a halo and I’ve never lost a stone (probably jinxing myself). I am fairly careful with it – I take my rings off when I am at home or at the gym.
