Well, I was at the mall today and stopped by to get my ring cleaned. He returns and informs me I’d lost a stone. I was shocked. I check it pretty often so it must have happened today. I’ve been so undecided about my whole setting anyway and this just seems like a sign of things to come. I only have three more days I can return the ring. Husband is okay with whatever I do. I’m glad it was a small diamond. My biggest concern is that I’ll lose my center stone. I really wish I’d gone with a setting where the prongs/head are an integral part of the ring itself and not one of those heads that are added and soldered in. I’m always afraid a good blow will break it off! My ring setting has the insurance but we had our own diamond so that is not insured. I may end up switching mountings so I don’t have this many worries…..
Also, how many of you ladies have shared prongs? The area I lost the stone from has shared prongs. I don’t recall banging it on anything. Decisions, decisions.

Bah’! Posts like this always worry me! My entire ring is made up of shared prongs, i dont wear my ring while i : cook, clean, sleep, shower or garden. It worries me to no end that i will somehow end up damaging it! If i knew what i know now i might have gone with a chanel set instead but regardless i love my set. Goodluck with your choice if you stick with it or change it! Here’s a photo of my ring for reference. xo

I’d say go ahead and return it.
my e-ring is a solitaire, and it’s very solid, I never worry about losing that stone. my wedding band is shared prong, but again, it seems very secure, the way it’s designed. I wear these rings everywhere (including the ocean) and don’t feel like I need to worry about them at all.
anyway, my point is that there is an advantage to having a ring that you can feel very secure with. get yourself a new setting that you can feel confident wearing and put your mind at rest.

I’m really thinking of going with a Scott Kay yellow gold engraved solitaire I found on Ebay. It is new and has NO side diamonds on the engagement band to worry about. There a are a few on the wedding band but they look really securely set. This would mean no rhodium dipping either so I probably would’t need to maintenance plan which is why I went with a chain jeweler. If I did lose a diamond off the wedding band we’d just eat the cost and have it fixed. I’ll post a pic of what I’m thinking.

@halolover: I lost a diamond in my ring today! It is pave & it is quite common to lose diamonds from pave. usually the store replaces them for free. but my original ring was resized and this caused stress on the pave & I lost 4 or 5 in the first year so they made me a new ring for free. this ring has been fine for over a year until today, it made me quite upset but I hope they will replace this diamond again for free.
