I am really hoping that someone can help me.
I have a ring that was made out of the Nickel white gold about 2
years ago. This ring had five 3mm high quality round emeralds set
along the top side of the ring in a straight line. This ring was done
by a custom jeweler. Not more than a month after having the ring, 2
of the stones fell out. Keep in mind that I am VERY delicate with the
ring. The jeweler replaced the stones and sent the ring back. After
another 6 months 2 more stones fell out of the ring. The ring has
since been re-cast in Palladium white gold. I am still VERY concerned
that the stones are going to fall out again.
Is there a significant difference between the hardness properties of
the Nickel and the Palladium white gold especially when using
emeralds??? Should I continue to worry about the stones falling
out? Could this be a problem with the jeweler that I chose to make
I would greatly appreciate any on this matter!!! Thanks
