Sorry to be off topic, but your avatar is very distracting.Chrono|1456932623|3998447 said:Did they offer any explanation as to why the diamond might have dropped out of the setting?
What is the likelihood of this happening again?
What can be done to reduce the chances of this happening again?
Hummm...strange,.. most jeweler don't have the correct equipment to reset a tension setting.Angelam|1456889311|3998240 said:Jeweler was able to put the diamond back in, phew!
I was thinking the same thing. Was your diamond originally set by GA or by your local jeweler?ccuheartnurse said:I'm surprised to hear your jeweller was able to pop the stone back in. I was under the same impression as Dancing Fire that the stone would have to go back to GA. If it were me, I would insist it go back to be inspected & fixed properly. Otherwise, I'd be afraid to wear my ring.

Something doesn't jive here.. is not like you can just slide the stone back into a tension setting. Every stone 'MUST' be set by its manufacturer.ccuheartnurse|1457022606|3999115 said:I'm surprised to hear your jeweller was able to pop the stone back in.

Not getting what you mean???gregchang35|1457218104|4000322 said:Just an observation - the op only has 3 posts, and it all relates to this topic.
It has been under 1 week of the ops post. Perhaps it is a timing issue to post.
4 prong settings aren't really all that secure, true. But with a 6 prong, you'd have to essentially damage 3 prongs before the stone fell out.kenny|1457287358|4000596 said:I'd rather give the OP the benefit of the doubt and assume he/she is telling the truth, is just busy, and will return.
Perhaps everything was true, but the OP is now embarrassed and will not post again.
But it's also possible the OP was a shill/troll or a competitor just trying to do damage to GA's name, or spread fear about tension settings.
Fear is the most powerful and contagious emotion.
It seems reasonable to me that tensions settings are much more safe than settings with those relatively-tiny prongs.
Prongs can catch on something and bend and let go of a diamond by just putting on a sweater.
