I talked to my fi and my uncle and they do not suggest I put it under the insurance since we only had the policy for 6 months and its not huge (well not to them). We pick up our wedding bands in a week and my FI thinks the band cover it so I wont notice it, you cant really see it the ring is a basket setting so it is on the on the edge. They think if I put it through insurance they may not cover if something else happens to it. So for the time I am going to wait talk the jeweler next week and see what he says. I am now thinking if we get it fixed I will change the setting from a 4 prong basket setting to a 6, so there is less for me to bang.
Oscar Earnie - thanks I had fun putting it together.

I think it's easy to just forget how rings can be more fragile than we think.
I was engaged before and had a 3-stone ring in white gold. The centre diamond was larger and a replacement (it was an heirloom ring), well, only a week or so after I got it, I broke off 2 of the prongs! It totall freaked me out. Turns out that if you re-set something and they add to the prong's length, it is weaker.
So be careful not to catch it on anything. I think it was a sweater for me that did it, but again prongs are usually pretty solid when they're made for the diamond.
