my guess is that it is not a good thing when the diamond in your new engagement ring rattles. and it’s definitely not a good thing when you use your fingernail to pop one of the channel-set diamonds into place, especially when you didn’t even realize it was loose to begin with.
david feared he’d bought me a bum ring, but i wasn’t worried. we brought it to the jeweler today at lunch and their resident expert, upon looking at the ring, said, “those are really nice stones!” after a closer look he said he would have to have someone else check each setting and tighten everything up. great, i thought. then he told me it will take a week, at least. bummer.
as we left, i frowned and said, “good-bye, ring.” david took my left hand in his and, feeling my ring finger, said, “it feels weird not to have it there.” you’re tellin’ me!
