Bent prongs can occur for a number of reasons, whether its because you’ve accidentaly dropped a heavy object on your ring, the prongs have been caught by cloth, you closed the door on your ring or it was slammed against an object. In these situations, you run the risk of one prong or several prongs being misshapen, lifted from the diamond or broken off entirely. After you’ve identified the damage, you should bring in your ring to your local jeweller to get it properly assessed and fixed.
If any of your side gemstones are missing, it is critical to bring your jewellery in to any reputable jeweller to assess why it happened and the cost to replace it.
BENT BOTTOM SHANK
Picking up heavy weights (with most of the weight resting on the bottom of the ring,) hitting something too hard, or any strenuous work could ultimately result in bending the bottom half of your ring. In the event of this happening, take it to a reliable jeweller to assess the problem.
