    OMGosh! Tuesday night I noticed that my ring was making a "clicking" every once in a while so I started tapping on my diamond and sure enough it was loose. I showed my fiance and he said let me see it. I was busy (reading this forum as a matter of fact) and didn't even notice he's left the room. He came in the room and said, "Well ... you can't wear your ring." Huh? His face said it all ... He tried to "fix" the prong and he broke it! ;( *sobbing*

    He was upset with himself and I was totally bummed! We bought the ring online from a designer so now what?! Yesterday he found a local jeweler and we took it in and had it repaired ($240 later! LOL).

    The good news is that we've gone round and round about whether or not to put a band with it. I do love my setting but he thought that any type of band would take away from the ring and the diamond. It's a solitaire with 2 rows of pave circling the diamond and 3 rows of pave on the band ... well ... we found the perfect band at this guy's shop! It's a single row of pave and it fits perfectly under the setting and he sized both rings so they fit me perfectly (my ring was too big).

    Yeah ... a happy ending and I got my band! I didn't want to look engaged for the rest of my life *SmiLes* Suzanne

        agreed ^^^ pics are a MUST! My fiance got my ring from Kay and about a month of me wearing it i had to take it in because my diamond was loose- AA! imagine if i would not have noticed it and it would have fallen out- good lord!

        good think i admire my ring at least once an hour...lol jk

                I forgot to say ... yes it's total crap! We have been engaged a year so it's not brand new .... but still. They guy who fixed it said they didn't use long enough prongs for that diamond so he replace two (which are longer slightly and sturdier than the orig) and I will have to always watch for it ... if one of the other two goes ... he'll replace the other two ... I wish he'd have done all 4 now! Makes me crazy! It's insured but still!!!!!!!!!!
