Hey! I don’t have one, but a friend of mine has been wearing her engagement ring for at least 2 years, and as far as I know, has had no problems! Her’s only has a solitaire diamond with the surprise diamonds on the side, so I’m not sure if you’re talking about one’s with more pave.

That must be a new collection, I’ve never seen it before! I would check with Scott Kay or Helzberg about their warranties, if you’re really concerned.

I don’t know much about Scott Kay rings but I would warn against buying anything from Helzburg. My aunt has has her ring repaired by them several times and after replacing the head her entire head/diamond fell off…just fell off! They claimed that her hand must have been smashed etc (her hand was perfectly fine) and despite all the documented repair work they supposedly stood behind they offered no replacement options. My aunt is devastated that after 25 years of marriage her diamond is gone.

Find a store that stands behind their work and guarantees.

I don’t havea Scott Kay ring but I know someone that does and her’s just broke. It didn’t lose any diamonds but her band snapped on the bottom so there was a sizable gap. The jeweler they purchased it from fixed it.

I hope I’m not too late with this post. I’ve had a Scott Kay e-ring, wedding band and matching anniversary band for the past 5+ years. I chose the 19K yellow gold version and I’ve never had a problem with any of the smaller stones on the bands — it’s the center stone that was the issue. The prongs were not yellow gold but instead platinum and I had a terrible time with the stone becoming very loose almost to the point of the stone falling out. I would get it tightened every couple of weeks and within days it would be loose again. At the advice of a local jeweler I’ve since had the prongs redone in a “chevron” style using white gold instead of platinum and have never had a problem since.

Here’s the set altogether with the new prongs:

@GoldenBee:  why was the platinum a problem? Isn’t it stronger than gold?

I’ve had my palladium Scott Kay engagement ring for 1 year now and have no problems.  FI purchased it from a local jeweler.

@MrsJenBee:  I always thought platinum was better than gold as well but after the prongs had been getting loose for years I consulted about 3 different jewelers who all said that platinum was too “soft” and surprisingly each suggested a white gold replacement. Personally I’m not sure if it was the platinum itself that was the problem or the shape of the prongs. My original prongs were pretty rounded and for my princess cut center stone each jeweler suggested I needed “chevron” tipped prongs which they said would keep it in place much more securely. I went ahead and went with the white gold “chevron” prongs and since my center diamond has never moved since I couldn’t be happier. I feel much more secure about not losing the stone. Other than that I have absolutely no complaints about my Scott Kay rings. He has beautiful choices and I especially love the “comfort fit” he offers.
