I don’t have a solitaire, but I did notice once that my center stone was just a teensy bit loose… I took it back to the store & they fixed it.

Never had that problem and I have always cleaned my jewelry with a brush, and I have a solitaire…

I had a 4 prong setting for my oval, good thing i noticed it was loose because it was going to fall out.  unlike a round where everything is the same mm so the tention to it is even since there’s no north or sount, it was recommended that I get a double claw solitaire or 6 prong instead of 4 prong so there would be more prongs holding the stone.

My solitaire was loose and I only wore It in my bedroom a couple times  it hasnt even been oficialy given to me yet -_- but I knocked it once .. Mine are V prongs on a 2ct … It just something that happens so went I to a local jeweler that has a bench on site asked them to tighten it and was in and out in litteraly 2 minutes and the jeweler told be to keep an eye one it … V  Prongs and a larger stone = greater potential for it to loosen I guess but it shouldn’t be a regular thing but it can happen

I had mine come loose twice and fixed before the jeweler decided the stock prongs were too small for the diamond. They had to replace the head and my stone has never been lose again. Personally I’d never leave it and take the chance that it gets looser and looser and falls out.

I would find another jeweler. The stone is loose, but they say it’s not going to fall out. Hmmm.  I’m not a jeweler, of course, but that doesn’t really make sense to me.

It needs to be fixed. Personnally, I wouldn’t even wear it until it was fixed.

A soft Toothbrush is fine to use as long as you are gentle with it.  It could have come loos for a multitude of reasons.

Definitely find another jeweler.  Confirming the stone is loose but basically telling you not to worry about it?  I don’t trust that.  I’d also recommend 6 prongs for a 1.5 and above stone.

@getting_hitched:  I stalked your profile because I wanted to see your ring, lol.  It’s gorgeous, simple and absolutely stunning!  It’s very high though because of the cathedral, do you sleep with it on?  I’m just wondering if it’s getting snagged on something which maybe loosened the stone?  I would ask your jeweler though – if the setting isn’t compromised, then why is the stone loose?  What other reason could there be for a loose stone if the setting ins’t compromised?  I’m just not understanding.  If I were you, I’d take it back and make sure they secure it so you can protect that gorgeous stone 🙂
