The same thing happened to some baguette hoops I had. I swept my bathroom floor and sifted through the hair (gross, I know) and found it. I took it to the jewelry store near me and they popped the sucker back in, polished the backs of both of them, and they are as good as new. It cost me $68. Just make sure you go to a reputable jeweler,

I’ve actually heard that this can happen, it’s not necessarily a sign of a disreputable vendor. 

Do you have insurance? I’m not sure it’s worth making a claim to get it fixed. You might want to get a quote and then decide. The store I deal with has a jeweler that travels and is there some days out of the week… so maybe you could call around before you trek out to see what each place can do.

@hooleywood:Did you get it appraised and insurance on the ring? If the ring was under $1,500 total insurance would be about $20 a year. The insurance covers anything, loss of stone, cracks, or anything. Even if you didnt get it at a jeweler the wholesale place should have given you an appraisal. If you didnt get the insurance I would have your fiance contact the wholesaler and see if they can do anything about it. Usually places like that do not want to get a bad reputation so they will fix it for free. Things like that shouldnt be happening. Any jeweler would fix it for you probably for a small fee

@hooleywood: I think any reputable jeweler should be able to replace and repair the stone – his mom’s friend might be able to give a referral. I just had a small diamond in one of my pendants replaced – it was about $90 altogether, $60 for the diamond $30 for the labor. Depending on the size of the diamond the price should be pretty reasonable.

This is the same thing that happened to me TWICE (lost it finally in the SUPERMARKET) sent it back to the store and they said it could take months to find a replacement of that size… so i am left without a ring.., I do hope u find it back.. i am not from the US so i cant suggest a price but jus wanted to send some *hugs* and prayers that u get ur “baby” back. And u shud get it appraised as soon as you get it fixed.

Same thing just happened to me! 4 weeks until the wedding and now I have to find a jeweller to replace the diamond.  I would just leave it, but you know people will want to look at my rings at the wedding (plus the photographer will be taking pictures of the rings too).  So – off to get it fixed.  Will let you know how it goes and what it costs.

Good luck!

I don’t know how much it would cost, but a girl at work lost a diamond from her wedding band and I laughed really hard when she showed me because the band then looked like a smiling mouth with a missing tooth. She laughed, too, and I think that made her feel better. I am so scared of one coming off of mine now.
