by Bluegemz » May 28, 2017 I understand! that is precisely how i feel about my wearing my emerald ring as well. I have to make an ongoing, conscious effort to be mindful all the time when it's on. Not only has a prong gotten caught and snapped off, but the brittleness of emerald in general scares me. I know women who have emerald engagement rings and I'm mystified how they have kept them in pristine condition, being worn 24/7!
