What is the safest kind of setting for a diamond ring that will be worn often?
I want to explore resetting a diamond ring that the diamond fell out of. Luckily, I was able to find it after much searching. It is an old diamond that goes back in the family, and I haven't replaced it for over five years, for fear it will just happen again. I have another ring that was passed on to me, that is almost having the prongs move to the point that the diamond in this second ring will also fall out. What ends up happening, is that I never wear the most important pieces, and its very sad. What is the super safest setting for such a diamond? They aren't a carat, maybe 1/3-1/2.
Four to six prong settings seem to be best. Most jewelry stores do repairs and reputable pawn shops can also make recommendations for repairs. It seems that the prongs on your rings need to be replaced or re-enforced.
I've had repairs done locally where I was unable to tell where the repaired section was. Get recommendations from others or use a jewelry store you are familiar with.
Channel setting might be better if you are wearing all the time. The flat surface won't catch on clothing.
