Should my stone move at all?

Morgan, is your ring insured just in case? You should have that looked at and tightened immediately, and if it's not already insured, get it insured ASAP.

A friend of mine had the misfortune of having her diamond fall out of the prongs and it was lost and gone forever about 6 weeks prior to her wedding this past July. If they hadn't had it insured they would've had to buy a whole new diamond... lucky for her she got it insured immediately after getting engaged and the insurance company gave them the money within 2 weeks, so she got her engagement ring back with a new diamond about 10 days before the wedding.

Also---if you haven't done this, you should call around to a few jewelers and ask for a quote. It's not terribly complicated for them to do if you give them all the info over the phone. Your stone should not move at all, get that sucker fixed!

yes, I got it fixed. i have found a really good jeweler in town (I've only lived here 3 years so i had to shop around for someone good.) I really like this guy. I had to get my ring resized when I first got it & I took it to him. My FI had one of my rings sized for comparison somewhere & they did it wrong so he ordered my ering too big. Anyway, I was really impressed by this guy. He is really nice & knows a lot about jewelry. So he was who I called when I noticed it was loose.

He said I had the problem because Tulipset (my setting) can be hard to set, so it probably wasn't done right the first time. I would have bought my ring from a jeweler I trusted, but the type of stone I wanted wasn't easy to find last year when I picked my ring out, so I picked one out from an online company. It's a moissanite, which is a lab created, durable, colorless stone. It's an inexpensive stone, so I did not get insurance. My ring was probably around $700 so I didn't think insurance was necessary. I might look into it though because it should be cheaper on a less expensive ring.

I would get it tightened right away. Mine was loose when I first got it and I took it in. I would not wait - not worth the risk. Especially if it's not insured yet!!

morgan, can you post a pic of your ring? ive never heard of tulipset before and i cant picture what you described. glad you got it fixed though! and yeah, i think you should still insure it. it might be appraised at more than what you paid for it, so if it got stolen or lost the insurance co would pay you the appraisal price...

It's a setting only made by stuller. I spent a lot of time shopping around, but as soon as I saw this I was done. It's so perfect for me. I love tulips & really liked the simplicty of the design with a little something different.

 

My ring is white gold. These are just pictures I found online.

    • 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.
