Re: DIAMONDS, your diamond, may not be forever
My sister, one year younger, lost the ring finger on her left hand to a (non-sailing) accident that caught the ring she was wearing, when were where 9 and 10 years old respectively. I was there. I would never want to see rings worn anywhere near the lines.
The prongs that hold any stone in can become thin from daily wear, even if they are fully pressed down. If the piece has serious sentimental value, it should be cleaned and inspected yearly. Expect to replace the prongs over a lifetime. If valuable, be sure to add a rider to your homeowner policy, as ordinary coverage won't reimburse you.
