My diamond is loose!!

It has seemed strange the last few days, but I thought I was just crazy.  I just took off my ring and I am able to spin the diamond around.  I am so glad I noticed this today cuz tomorrow I am going to Disneyland and if I had lost it there I would have been pissed!  Off to the jeweler to get it fixed.... arrggghhhh!

jax~you are so right... I just took it for the 6mth cleaning in Sept.  And I clean it at home every once in a while and check it just to make sure.  This is just a reminder to me that things can happen. :)

That is really good that you noticed that.  That would of sucked too.  My sisters engagement ring at the time about six yrs ago saved her finger.  At her dorm she was opening her window up and the window fell and hit the diamond and the diamond was really lose.  Lucky her finger did not break and did not lose the diamond and got it fix.

Hi ladies!  I went and they fixed it, they said the prongs were loose.  And they cleaned it.  Boy was it dirty.  I am much happier now and will have a great day tomorrow at the Merriest Place on Earth!


FMBarr~That is an amazing story!  So glad to hear her finger and diamond were ok!


SummerBride~I am so with you, even though it is insured, I would have been so bummed.  He spent so much time picking it out and I am such a sentimental sucker!

EEK!  That happened to me too with one of my side stones.  It actually came out!  Luckily I noticed right away and found it on my bathroom rug.  I had it reset and the prongs built up a bit.  I also get my ring cleaned checked every 6 months...last year a chip was found under the prong and I had the stone replaced...thanks to having it covered my my renter's insurance policy.  SO worth it!  I got an upgrade even (she couldn't find the exact size stone that I had, so she went a little bigger...nice!)
