A Little Education on your Bling

I’ve been married for almost 11 years now, and the ring has actually been on my finger for MORE than 11 years (the diamond part). The prongs do shift around, and I finally got around to taking it to a jewler this week. I told them that I needed the prong bent back and the guy looked at my ring and said “wow, you’re lucky your diamond’s still in there, your need this re-tipped.”
Now, he could very well be ripping me off– but I had NO idea that rings had to have their crowns replaced at any point in their lives. I mean, I figured when you BOUGHT the ring you were good forever.
Apparently that ain’t so. So, since many of my friends have been married for a similar time period, I thought I’d share my new-found knowledge.
I do feel naked without my ring on though.
I wish I were naked as hot as it is as of late though. :) I’m sure most of the rest of you are fine with my clothed bod though.

    I’ve been married the same amount of time and my ring has the same issue. I, however, was able to have the prongs bent back into place and was told that the next time they start to move, I will need have the crown replaced.

    They must not make rings the way they used to though, as I’m sure neither of my grandmas have ever done anything like that to their rings. I also know they have never taken them off of their finger in over 50 years, as they were shocked that I take mine off to sleep, swim, etc.

    yeah…I had mine for almost 10 years and I am having the same issues. On the plus side, the people who own the store where I got my ring also happen to one of our families best friends so it wasnt’ too painful to get it fixed ;)

    My parents have been married 40 years (this year) and my mother had to have her setting replaced about 10 years ago. That was really hard for her. Gosh, you want to keep the ring to wear that you were married in, but they had replaced the prongs too many times and couldn’t do it again. It was a sad day.

    Fortunately (?) I got my hand slammed in a door and the only damage was to my ring. I realized an hour later that my diamond was gone. I thought it was lost forever, but then I remembered the incident with the door and found it imbedded in the carpet right below the door. They fixed my prongs then. I think I may have another couple years left before I have to slam my hand in the door again.
