@juliesprague: I have a pave band and the jeweler told my Fiance to have me hold it up to my ear and “tap” the ring every couple of days to make sure none of the stones are loose. (You can hear a rattling if they are loose.)

If you take it in to a jeweler they can check for loose stones and tighten all the prongs. Prongs can get bent/loose from daily wear and tear as well as accidentally knocking your ring on things.

@juliesprague: Yes! My ring is actually at the jewelry store right now being repaired. Two diamonds fell out and were lost, and we’re having them replaced and many of the prongs retipped. It’s really aggravating; I’m afraid to wear my ring now! 🙁

@totheislnds: I’ve had dreams where I look down @ my ring and it looks like one of those cheap rhinestone rings with half the diamonds missing!

@juliesprague: To answer your question, no.  I do cringe every time i “knock” my e-ring on something, but in the 9 months I’ve had it, I haven’t lost any stones.  I think it depends how it’s made, where the pave is located, etc.  If you’re having problems, take it to your jeweler and they can probably fix it.  🙂

@juliesprague: Where did you get the ring from? Did you have to have it re-sized? Has it been insured?

I’d take it back to the jeweler and have them re-set the stones and tighten all the prongs.

@juliesprague: Sounds like they may not have reset all the stones when they re-sized. Resizing can loosen stones.

Also, I’m not sure if you do this, but if you use an ultrasonic cleaner those can loosen the stones as well.

@spaniel: how often does that happen, I am so sorry!  Not to be nosey but do mind if I ask – do you have to pay for the replacements each time your ring is repaired?

So my Fi owns a jewelry company.   And I actually received a halo pave ring from him.  He says its fairly common for the small pave stones to fall out – but it also depends on how its set.  If they’re individually prong set – then less likely.  If they’re set next to each other sorta in a tension method- they’re more likely to fall out.  It also depends on the workmanship.  His friend bought a sapphire pave eternity band – manufactured in China.  that ring is in my Fi’s office once a week to get a stone replaced.  Meanwhile, he made an identical band in a different stone for that same guy.  It’s been over a year and no stone has fallen out.

You also shouldn’t be charged to replace the stones – the store you bought it at should do it for free.

@jackie-o: It happens everytime I get my ring cleaned. When it’s been cleaned at the jewelry store where I got my wedding band (also pave, never lost a stone), a diamond always falls out, and they always put it back in for me. I brought it to the store where I bought the e-ring the first time one fell out on its own (ON MY WEDDING DAY!) and they replaced it for free. This time, since we’ve had the ring for over two years, they charged us $40 to replace the stones.

I have paved halo rings and haven’t had any gone loose on me yet.  I had many many dreams of that occuring too.  I’m surprised and thankful that they are still in tack since i’m known for being aggressive with my things (I broke many many phones, none of my other rings, necklaces or earings have survived).  I don’t take care of my things well…and i’m just pron to accidents.  I do take care of my rings and they have survived. 🙂
