    jessijess94:  I have only had mine for 2 years but I’ve never had a problem. That being said, I do take it in for inspection twice a year.

    I’ve had my Neil lane wedding set for a little over two years now. However it hasn’t been worn for over a year. In the time frame that I did wear it, I had no issues. A good friend of mine has a nearly identical Neil lane set, she’s had it for about a year. Within the first two months she lost two diamonds. Kays then offered to replace the ring after the second stone fell out and so far she’s lost one diamond out of the halo. So I guess it’s hit or miss really. My rings had to be specially made in my ring size (which took a few months) and my friend with both rings had them sized to fit. I’m wondering since these rings typically have 3/4 eternity shanks if having them sized effects the integrity of the rings. So maybe request to have them made in your size instead of having them sized to fit. Overall I do not think Neil Lane bridal rings are worth the money they ask. They do not have the greatest quality diamonds and you could easily have something custom made to look like the ring you want with higher quality diamonds for the same price or even less.

    No issues with mine.  Mine is platinum no halo.  I have worn it for 2 years even to sleep at night.  I am the standard size they come in so mine have not been resized.

    I have not had any issues with mine but then again the size they had on display was the one that I needed I have heard of the diamonds falling out if you get them resized. But so far I have had no problem with mine. One of my best friends has had hers since 2013 and has had no problem  with hers but she doesnt wears her everyday

    Theres Neil Lane, and then Neil Lane licensed at Kay’s. The latter- no. Too many complaints about stone quality, pricing, construction and service to consider IMO.

    From what I understand, there are two sets of Neil Lane ring lines – those really expensive ones that celebrities wear, and then the line he has at the nationawide mall jewelers akin to Kay, Jared, etc. 🙂 I can’t give any personal experience, but I have read a lot of bees talk about diamonds coming out of settings from the Neil Lane rings they’ve purchased at mall stores. Good luck! 🙂

    I have a Neil lane solitaire with small diamonds on the profile. I’ve heard a lot about diamonds falling out of these settings as well but I haven’t had any problems.  Maybe the stones falling out has to do with a lot of resizing?

    I’ve had no issues with mine and I wear mine to the gym and sometimes wash dishes with it on. I also purchased from Jared and have the insurance when they will replace and fix anything. Mine was resized ad I picked a diamond from Jared and my ring actually appraised for a lot more then we paid. I’ve only had mine for about 9 months but like I said I’m rough on it.

    rusticglambride:  Just so you know…pretty much ANY ring will appraise for more than it costs. And you pay higher premiums for that inflated appraisal. When getting appraisals you need to be clear with them you do not want an inflated appraisal.

    jessijess94:  OP, a friend of mine has a Neil Lane ring and has lost a melee stone or two but that can happen with pave depending on how it is done and your lifestyle/how you care for your rings. While they are not really so much my style, I like some of the “celeb” Neil Lane rings I see – like on The Bachelor, lol – but I do agree with MrsSparkleBee13 that one can usually have something custom made for likely less money and better quality. But if you love the setting you got and are happy with it, just make sure to treat pave like it should be treated and get it inspected regularly – otherwise wear and enjoy 🙂

    kwbride2015:  I wish lol just white gold. I fell in love with the setting and it fit into my budget perfectly. What band did you get to go with it?

    jessijess94: MrsBuesleBee means there’s Neil lane bridal for kays, jared, zales, etc..where his name is used. then there’s actual hand crafted Neil Lane jewelry made by him. Hes a very high end jewelry designer that makes engagement rings for celebrities and of course rich people. He’s made rings for Britney Spears, Miley Cyrus, the Bachelor etc..
