Oh bless your heart! It’s easy to do, especially if you’re not totally used to wearing it yet. Luckily, the diamond is the most expensive part, and you’re definitely not going to hurt it! That’s what my husband always tells me when I get a scared look on my face after banging my left hand against something. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Diamonds are so hard, it would be tough to chip it and almost impossible to shatter it.  You are more likely to bend a prong first.  I find that you never realize how much you whack your hand on things until you have a rock sitting on top of it.  That makes it easier to catch it on stuff and gets in the way a bit when you whack your hand.  I wouldn’t worry too much.

I LOLed because you remind me of, well, me.  Total clutz here.  My poor ring takes a beating.  Thankfully it’s diamonds and not a softer stone.

Don’t worry too much, rings are pretty resilient.

Haha, I remember the first few months I had my e-ring I kept banging it on things. I think the worst was when I was doing a fist pump in excitement and I punched the ceiling! I had a pretty high setting and the diamond actually went through thedrywall and there was a little hole there, hehe. My ring was fine though! ๐Ÿ™‚

I remember when I first got my e-ring I felt like I was ALWAYS hitting on things.  You get used to it though and soon it won’t phase you at all.  It’s been 2.5 years and I haven’t done a bit of damage to my ring!

@Songbird29:  My jewelers will check your prongs and fit for free so you may want to stop by somewhere to make sure the setting is nice and tight.

Sounds like me lol. I still bang it around from time to time, and I’ve had it for almost 2 years! But I’ve done more damage to myself (scratching my face in my sleep, etc) than to the ring. It’s a study little thing ๐Ÿ™‚
