Take it to your Jeweller and ask them, what can be done that won’t damage the structure of the ring. It maybe a simple polish will get the rough patch out, but you need to ask a professional

I knocked my stone right out of my ring when I had a fall at work. I hit my hand off a door frame. Had a lovely bruise and a ring with no stone. I made everyone search for it. Luckily it was found. I had to take it to my Jeweller for repair.

I know my local jeweler recommends bringing your ring in every six months or so for cleaning and to check for loose prongs so I would find someone like that in your area. I’ve lost a side stone before and I’ve also broken a pave diamond in half (still don’t understand how that was possible). So bezels only for me from now on!

A couple weeks ago I was cleaning my ring and dropped in on our concrete floors. Two prongs shattered and a side stone fell out. Luckily it didn’t go far so I just collected everything and took it to my jeweller. They fixed it the same day – rebuilt prongs and all!

Take it to a jeweler to have it looked at.  They will buff it out or they might have to repair the prong.

I knocked my stone right out, too. While making my bed of all things, I hit it against the bedside table. Freaked me out. My jeweler ended up putting a different head with double corner prongs on it, but talk to your jeweler. They should be able to fix it. It’s gonna get a bit damaged if you wear it every day, that’s just life.
