Looks like an engagement ring to me.

I don’t understand the question. What did your jeweler say? Your ring is beautiful, and it looks very much like an engagement ring that you would wear daily. Congratulations!

It’s a beautiful ring! Congrats! It sounds like the jeweler’s just trying to persuade you to change to a more expensive ring.🤷‍♀️

Is it because it only has 2 prongs?  I mean, that’s not very secure, but it’s a beautiful ring.

Is it possible that the ring is costume Jewelry? I’m having trouble believing that anyone would set a diamond with two prongs.

It’s a beautiful ring!! The only thing that might tip people off is the two prongs, but that isn’t something you’d notice in real life. Wear it with pride bee and congratulations on your engagement!

jmai :  Congratulations!  If it’s a diamond, moissanite, sapphire – nothing to have to explain to anybody.  If it’s an extremely crappy CZ with two prongs and A. falls out tomorrow or B. chips next week, yes, it’s going to get awkward.

jmai :  it’s a very beautiful ring but the two prongs are really throwing me off. I know you said it’s not a diamond but regardless what it is , the two prongs isn’t going to protect the stone from chipping or possibly falling out. I would be worried as well!

I think he might have been concerned about the ring’s longevity because it’s only set with two prongs. So he might have meant something along the lines of wearing it only for special occasions? I’m not sure. I think it looks really cool with two prongs but I’d definitely be careful with it!

The two prongs make me nervous, but I’ve had the heart cut stone fall out of my 3 prong engagement ring twice now so I do have a stand in for work. Maybe that’s what your Jeweller was getting at. I didn’t even consider it being a problem for everyday wear to start with and I don’t think the Jeweller told my fiancé it could be a problem because he didn’t realise it was an engagement ring (it’s tanzanite so not traditional). I took it to my preferred Jeweller for repair and that’s when they told me about the issues with 3 prongs especially for everyday wear

It may also be that the metal in the ring is made of is not gold. Its harder to work with pot metals when sizing. A lot of jewellers won’t do it.

jmai :  I think you are greatly overestimating 

A) how many people give a damn, and 

B) how much they actually pay attention or care.

Since you’re newly engaged, maybe your closest friends and coworkers will ask to see it and comment…it’s a shiny new thing in your life and that’s what people do with new/important things.  And then they just stop giving damn.  And your average person you come across has better things to pay attention to.  So all that matters is you like it.
