@sschwartz:  Its the setting, they should have warned you they were going to pop out. I’ve lost 3 diamonds from my setting over the last two years :-

@sschwartz:  I’m so sorry!  *hugs*  On the bright side, he got the insurance, and you can get it fixed! πŸ™‚  It totally is first world problems, but that doesn’t mean it’s not ok to be a little bummed about it.  I would be.  

That does seem a bit extreme on the sizing, but from what I understand most jewelry stores only carry size 7 and anything you need other than size 7 needs to be either re-sized or custom ordered (with extra cost).  At least that’s what we were told when shopping for my e-ring.  Is it eternity style or are the diamonds only on the top part?  I can’t tell from the pic.  I’m certainly no jewelry expert, but I would imagine making that much of a jump in sizing would be a bigger issue in an eternity style band where the diamonds wrap all the way around.  Either way, that’s a huge difference and I’m a little surprised the store didn’t make your Fiance special order one that was closer to the size you actually wear so it wouldn’t need such a huge adjustment.  Maybe talk to the insurance company or another jewler to get opinions on weather or not a drastic size reduction could lead to diamonds being less firmly set?  At least then you’ll know if it’s likely you’ll have repeat problems.  I wish I could offer better advice.  Your ring is beautiful btw! xD

Yeah, they should have ordered you a 3.5 and not even tried to size a 7 down that low. :

I always heard it’s not a good idea to resize more than 2 sizes if there are any stones set in the band.  I’m guessing this is the reason why.

if it makes you feel better, i have had stones fall out of my settings after just a 1/2 size change. when you get it replaced, make sure you emphasize that they make sure EACH stone is secure. sorry this happened, but when it happened to me (twice!), they were able to put a stone in while i waited.
