It has a lot to do with the quality of your ring. I know a lady who have had her diamonds fall out very early on after receiveing it. Her ring was from a jeweler in town that was very poor quality. But, I know it can happen in good quality rings too.

There is no way you can loosen the center stone in a bezel setting just by rubbing it! Your center stone is insanely secure so don’t worry about that.

As for the pave stones, sometimes they do loosen on their own, but not just from routine cleaning. They are more likely to loosen from wear and tear on the ring like twisting or bending, or if you clean your ring in an ultrasonic (the vibrations can cause the stones to actually eat away at the metal). Luckily if a melee stone ever does fall out, it’s a relatively inexpensive fix.

I also recommend having your ring insured just for peace of mind!

I have a pave setting as well and I’m also completely paranoid about it, checking it all the time.

Let me assure you that so I far, I have managed to accidently bang it off of every surface I come near. And every time I freak out and check it carefully. So far mine is fine.

I only clean my with windex, run it under hot water, and then pat dry with a tissue

@LaraW:  i would say that rings are meant to be worn. the jeweler made it to be worn regularly and to withstand all that goes with that. i have a very intricate right hand ring with many small diamonds all over it that are set with prongs. i’ve had it for a few years, wear it everyday even to my job which is very physical, and i’ve had no problems. you can’t live your life freaking out evry time you bump your hand on something or touch your ring. it’s just no way to live! good luck sweetie.
