I fell down cement stairs 6 days after getting engaged.  Bent 1 prong in completely the wrong direction and another barely enough to keep the diamond from flying out.  I have permanent scars on both legs, my upper left arm and 2 knuckles on my left hand, but the diamond remains flawless.  They’re quite durable =)

If a diamond chips it’s because there is a flaw in it.  When you purchase a diamond it will be scored based on color, cut, clarity and flawlessness.  They can have feathers, tiny cracks, clouds, or other little diamonds actually inside them.  All of these things make a diamond more susceptible to being chipped.  If a diamond is perfectly flawless (which would make it really really expensive) then they will most likely never chip.

All I can say is this – get insurance. They have companies out there who ONLY insure jewelry and will replace the diamond if it’s lost, the ring is stolen, etc. An e-ring is meant to be worn, your Fiance is right, but you should still be careful and not reckless. I definitely feel better about wearing mine though, knowing it’s insured incase something happened.

its harder to lose the whole ring while it is on your finger!
