hahah- I was checking my ring ALL the same after I just got engaged- Now, not so much- I think you get more and more confident that the stone will stay put the longer it stays put πŸ™‚ lol. You will relax after a while

I agree with PPs, you’ll relax after a while. It definitely doesn’t hurt to get it checked and tightened every now and then, though.

I agree with the others, but just to be sure, get it insured! That way if the center stone ever does loosen or fall out, it can be replaced by insurance.

First of all congrats. Second I agree with the bees you get more relaxed as time goes on I used to check mine ALL the time. Just make sure to get your ring checked every so often.. Where I got my ring they told us every six months and if you do that then they will replace a stone if it does get loose.

Chances are it wont, but it happened to my mom and one of my friends! So i’d say it’s a legitimate fear. Thank goodness they somehow both ended up finding the stones but it caused some major stress!

Definitely get it insured, so even if it does fall out you will be ok.

In the 2 years I worked for a jeweler, I only met one lady whose center diamond fell out (plenty of the little side ones though). Turns out it fell out in the dishwasher. She’d already had it replaced, but came back and gave the replacement back to us (we had a warranty against that). Very honest customer!

It’s pretty rare, but yeah, keep to your jeweler’s schedule for maintenance. Also, if you hear a little clicking kinda sound from your ring, it often means a stone is getting lose. Congrats!!

I haven’t heard of that happening too often. As long as your ring is insured and you get it checked at least 2x a year at the jeweler you should be fine! Congrats on your engagement!

Get it insured! It really doesn’t cost very much at all. I used Jewelers Mutual. It really helps ease some of the worry.

Omg my center stone almost DID fall out!  I have a round diamond held on with four prongs, and I don’t remember why but I was shaking my hand near my face and I heard a rattle.  I looked at the ring, stone didn’t look loose at all, but again with the rattling when I shook it.  I took off the ring and put it in a zipped bag, and then I drove to the jewelers after work.  Apparently the stone was really loose and could’ve fallen out!  She fixed it, tightened the prongs, and I haven’t had any problems since, but I guess that’s why people get ring insurance.  Yikes!

@Fegele:  I’ve had that dream too.  I guess we just get a little paranoid neurotic sometimes.  Mine’s insured, though I’d still be devastated if anything happened to it.

congrats! where are the pics?! haha

i wouldnt worry, those suckers are in there pretty good and you wont worry about it after a while, but like other people said it doesnt hurt to go get it checked out every so often. i would be more worried about the pave band and those diamonds falling out over the center stone. that would be more likely to happen.
