Ugh! So I was just sitting at my computer today at work, slow day so was starting at my ring. Something caught my eye, and right by one of the prongs there’s a chip in the diamond! Now looking back at when we got engaged, I thought I noticed something in the diamond in the same place. It didn’t have any depth to it though, so I thought maybe it was just the way the light was hitting it or there was an inclusion there that caused a little line. Now looking back, I think it was probably cracked when they set it, and wearing it for the last 3 months loosened the crack so it fell out. It’s not large, and you’d probably never notice it unless I pointed it out, but I feel terrible about it! Especially since I saw it when I first got the ring and we probably could have done something about it then, but after 3 months I’m sure the jeweler would just say it was my fault. My Fiance got insurance for the ring, but not sure if that covers anything for this sort of thing. I haven’t told him yet, and I’m debating telling him since if he knows about it and there’s nothing that he can do he’ll just feel bad about it. So I guess what I’m wondering is, has anyone had something similar happen? How did you handle it? Any other advice? Ugh, I feel like I just got kicked in the gut!
