Is it bad luck if...

Recommended Posts

A diamond falls out of your ring 18 days before your wedding! censored.gif

 

I'm venting and am SO annoyed. This is the second time it's happened! Word of advice, stay away from pave' diamonds as accents, they're just so small the prong obviously can't hold them tight enough. And the last time I got my ring fixed they lost it and I had to get a whole new ring. I kept saying something has to go wrong because its been smooth sailing so far...I guess if this is the something wrong its better then losing a key item like a wedding dress!

I don't think its bad luck, but I would say it is bad craftsmanship by the jeweler. I can't believe it has happened twice. After the first time they should have reset the prongs. Are they at least not charging you to replace the prongs? So sorry that you are dealing with this 18 days out from your wedding. How nerve racking. I would definitely have the jeweler fix it with a guarantee that the prongs would either not become loose again or lifetime warranty that they will keep fixing it free of charge if it does. Hope you get it all sorted. Good luck!

I totally agree.  My 1st ring was a beautiful 3-stone setting with pave down both sides.  LOVED IT!  Went to get it cleaned and a week later a stone fell out.  While it was there to be repaired 12 stoned loosened up and they were reset as well.  My ring was actually palladium, a softer metal.  According to the jeweler, the industry had just began to see that it was too soft for some settings, particularly pave.  They also advised me that pave was just more delicate to maintain, even in white gold.  They suggested that I take it off while doing house work etc.  When I gave it some thought, I decided I was not comfortable.  I started having dreams about it and everything.  I went and got a new ring and am very happy and feel very secure.

I understand your frustration but I would blame the jeweler so much.  I was upset but as long as they can do something to accommodate you, that should be okay.  Pave is a gorgeous setting and I truly love it.  I just don't look at it as an everyday type ring.  I hope it all works out.

 

AND NO I DO NOT THINK ITS BAD LUCK.  POOR TIMING, BUT YOU AND YOUR MARRIAGE WILL BE FINE!

My cousin's engagement ring which has pave diamonds on the side did the same thing! And one fell out the same day she got the ring at work we had to sweep the whole office to find it!

I actually tease my FI about it. The very first piece of jewelery he bought me was for my birthday, 3 months after we met. He bought me a David Yurman bracelet with a pave diamond x. About six months later I noticed one of the stones fell out. Thankfully, Holt Renfrew replaced the whole bracelet.

 

The day after I got my Tacori e-ring which has .25 ct of pave diamonds, I noticed one was missing. We took it to a local Tacori dealer that offered to send it back to Tacori for repair. I didn't want to part with it, so we had the jeweler that set my center stone replace it for free. So now I tease him that it's a good thing he buys me expensive name brand jewelery so that when the stones fall out they are replaced for free.

I don't think its bad luck either as the other comments said pave diamonds tend to fall out. So now you know what diamonds never to get again. I know your wedding will be wonderful regardless.

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
