I had the head replaced on the center stone of my wedding ring about a year or so ago. Today I noticed that the entire center head (including the emerald) fell out of my ring. Prayers that we could find the head/stone, and that the jeweler has some sort of warranty on repairs would be appreciated. It wasn't the prongs that failed, it was the ENTIRE head.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.

if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

It looks like it is an emerald ring.

Lord have mercy, may your servant Quinalt find her stone setting.

My wedding ring is worth closer to 1k now. It has appreciated in value more than 50%.

No luck finding the stone. I will be checking the vacuum cleaner bag next. The jeweler only warranties their work for 6 months Sad So I am not going to get them to do anything. They certainly won't replace the stone. And they wouldn't fix the ring and re-install the stone even if I were to find it.

Did you check the drain pipes? It could be stuck in the trap.
This could be a design flaw. Future stones could be sprung by a spring like action.

The ring was absolutely fine for the 15 years I had it before the head was replaced. I am almost positive that it was faulty work on my ring.
