I am sorry you lost a diamond. It was probably not set right when you got it and/or the prongs were loose. I suggest that you take it in to your jeweler at least once a month to make sure the prongs are tight. If you continue to have the problem, you may want to consider getting a different setting for your diamonds.

advice from my FI’s jeweler mother – take it off when you sleep: sleep wears on jewelry more than you’d think; for cleaning, brush it down with an old (soft) toothbrush to get grime away, and clean it with ammonia (do a bit of research and see if it needs to be diluted – i can’t remember right now for some reason).

that’s about all i can think of right now… for basics!  hope it helps?

I agree with noritake22, the diamond was probably already a bit loose when you got it. A regular maintenance schedule is ideal. If your fiance bought the insurance or extended plan for it they probably will check it out for free. Good luck, oh and beautiful ring 🙂

What a shame.  Were you able to find the diamond that came loose?
