My daughter in law just called telling me her engagement ring of 6
years had split. It is a platinum band with a platinum 6 prong
finding for the diamond which was put onto the shank by a jeweler.
I know about wear and tear on 14k bands, that need to have the shank
replaced, But I have never heard of a platinum band splitting right
at the finding. She said she didn’t even notice it was split, and
doesn’t remember sharply striking it or having it get crushed or
What do you all think?
Thanks for your opinions.
