We ordered it from an online store so I wonder if I can just take it into another jeweler to have it tightened. I don't think I will have time for atleast 2 weeks. Should I stop wearing the ring until it's tighter?
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!
