Over the life of a diamond ring, a prominent stone is likely to loosen in its setting at some point in time.
Diamond rings see a lot of wear and tear since they are typically worn daily.
Naturally, the stones can loosen with these normal activities:
- Lifting weights
- Buckling seatbelts / carseats
Any of these normal daily tasks can cause delicate prongs to bend or loosen. Even one bump or snag of a ring can cause a stone to come loose, because the prongs are not as hard as the diamond itself.
In addition to removing your rings during the above activities when possible, consider having the prongs checked at least twice a year by a jeweler that you know and trust. This task is quick and easy and will save much heartache and disappointment if your stone were to fall out and get lost forever. Here at Marlen Jewelers we are always happy to clean, polish and check your rings at no cost to you!
