The prongs that hold your gemstones in place can become loose with everyday wear and tear. Indications that this may be happening include: feeling rough edges on the prongs, catching threads in the prongs, or noticing your gemstones rattling or moving slightly.

Regardless of the number of prongs holding your gemstones in place, it is possible for prongs to separate from gemstones as a result of being bumped or knocked during everyday wear. Since prongs are essential to securing your gemstones, we recommend bringing your jewelry in to be inspected at least once annually. This will help to ensure that your jewelry is properly cared for and can provide you with many more years of enjoyment.
