I was engaged less than 48 hours and last night, after getting home from work, I noticed a small side stone fell out 🙁 We scoured the driveway, entryway, and kitchen, but no luck finding the stone. It’s a vintage Art Deco ring from the 1930s – but I didn’t expect it to be so fragile already??
My fiance will be calling the jeweler today to see into getting it fixed.
I’m sad 🙁 And not looking forward to having to get another diamond for it. We’re cash-strapped as it is.
Anyone else have this happen?

Oh no! I am so sorry this happened to you. 🙁 if it is just a tiny diamond it probably won’t be that much to replace. You may want to have your jeweler check the integrity of the whole setting though, to see if any other spots need repaired. Good luck!

somethingbee: This happens a lot with pave too in brand new rings. Don’t feel too bad! A small diamond won’t be that much, but I know how you feel about not needing any extra expenses.
This is why I have a solitaire and a RHR without stones. I would destroy a ring with small stones

I lost a stone from my ring and it was so sad 🙁 But it’s especially nasty to have happen so soon after receiving it. Perhaps they will cover it under some form of warranty since you only just got it, even though it’s not a newly made item.

Your jeweler should fix it for free since you havnt had the ring long. I’m sorry that happened, it stinks. Hopefully it was just a one time thing! Goodluck

Thankfully, our amazing jeweler is replacing it for free! She also put the ring in some sort of wave-creating contraption that checks to see if other stones are loose – the rest should be okay for now.
So I’ll get my ring back tomorrow!!
She also offered for us to bring it back in a couple of months (when it’s less sad to not have my ring for a few days) and she’ll strengthen the prongs.
She also said that it is, indeed, sadly an affliction of these vintage beauties.
Thank you so much for the support, ladies!!

Sorry this happened. I had this happen just last week. Except the diamond that was lost was from my late mothers engagement ring. I’m glad they’re replacing it, that’s what my jeweler is doing too, even though the sentimental aspect is gone.

somethingbee: Wow this sucks, but I’m so glad that your jeweller is being so great about it! Hopefully no other stones fall out in the wave-creating machine but at least if they do she will see and fix them straight away!

It sounds like you have a good jeweller. Thank goodness it’s a happy ending!

Ugh I feel your pain. One of my little halo stones fell out, no idea when or where, I just noticed it one day RIGHT before I was going in to have a job interview! Talk about stressed. I have to mail mine back to St Thomas because that’s where he bought it. Certified/Insured. Still super paranoid so I’m stalling. 🙁

The exact same thing happened to me! Glad you got it fixed!
