Ladies with prong rings…do your prongs snag things?

Hi, I’m a new bee and eager to jump in!  Yes, my ring sometimes snags things.  If I’m putting on a sweater, I turn it to the inside of my hand so the prongs don’t catch.

Yes, mine snags things, too.  I can’t tell you how many strands of hair I’ve lost in the past three months because they keep getting pulled by the ring.  Sometimes I’ll do the same as @littlebluebox and turn the stone to the inside of my hand, but I just don’t think about it every time.

My ring snags on sweaters or blankets occasionally.  I just turn it around like LittleBlueBox suggested if I want to prevent it from happening.

Mine snags things all the time! Drives me nuts because I am constantly picking hair and sweater fuzz out of it! Strangely, I have never once thought to turn it around! When I have to put on nylons for work, I almost always take it off because it snags the nylons and I have to throw them out and get a new pair. Booo!

 

I still LOVE my ring though and wouldn’t change it for anything!

My four-prong snags things all the time! I am just starting to adjust my habits to prevent snagging (only running my right hand through my hair, not putting my ring on until after I’m dressed, etc.).

Mine snags too, but not too bad. Mostly from blankets or sweaters.  I don’t think there’s an easy solution except taking it off when putting on something you don’t want it to snag on.

Mine also snags! I mentioned it when I went to get my ring cleaned and was told that it is because the prongs are not tight enough (it was a weekend and the person that does this was not working at the time) so perhaps all of us should mention this to our jeweler and see if it is indeed due to not being tight enough! I too have lost more strands of hair that I can count! It does only seem to be in one prong (i have 4)…. who knows!

It happens pretty often, but I’m not sure if there’s even anything that can be done about it besides changing to a bezel setting instead! Just turning it around ought to help, or tightening the prongs like amyloufustino suggested.

I have a 4-prong setting and I’ve never noticed that it catches on things.  Maybe my prongs are tightened like @amyloufustino mentioned?  I have no idea, but I hope they stay that way!  🙂

Mine doesn’t snag too much, but my 9 months old kitten likes to chew on it. grrrr. I have to sleep with it turned inside my hand so he can’t get it.

I have a 6-prong and it does get tiny fibers caught in it pretty often.  I feel like I’m constantly picking stuff out of the prongs.  I was worried that the prongs were loose, but apparently they’re fine — it did exactly the same thing when it was brand-new, and I get it looked at every few months, so I think that’s just the way it is.  It is annoying, though…

Mine never really snags anything, even times I’d expect it to it hasn’t.
