Update: Broken Diamonds - What do I do!?!?

After I left work yesterday afternoon, I stopped by a jeweler here in Atlanta.

He said that all of the diamonds on my ring are real and YES diamonds can crack and break. He said it's a lot easier to break the side diamonds because they are smaller chips. He said that they are likely not bad quality diamonds, they're just small and he would be willing to bet that I'm probably pretty rough with my hands. He said just try to take it easy.

He also said, that if they continue to chip they will eventually break out of the setting. But they can be easily and pretty cheaply replaced because they are chips. He said he sees this all the time.

I'm still upset that they are broken because I cherish the ring so much, but I'm really relieved to know that they can be fixed and not had a really high cost.

Thanks everyone for your help and advice! =D

    So do you work with your hands a lot, is the ring under unusual circumstances, etc.?  Because I'm pretty sure that my dinky little poor lady ring is not of the best quality, but I've worn it 24-7 for the past 7+ years without anything breaking.

    I'm rough with my hands in that I work every day, workout, sleep and do everything.  I've never had any diamonds chip on me.  I'm very confused.

    I am pretty rough with my hands. More than anything I would say that I'm clumsey. I will trip over something and smack my hand on a table or chair catching myself. Or i will walk through a doorway and smack my hand on the door jam. When the jewler said "you are probably rough with your hands", I thought back to several of those occassions and realized that he is right. It's not that I'm trying to damage my ring or am not trying to be careful with it, I just knack for running into things and my ring takes the brunt of it when my hands are involved.

    sounds like you really do care whether or not they are actually diamonds.

    You are confused because she is probably not being honest. So one of the hardest substances in the world can just break without any thing slamming into it. Me thinks the lady doesn't want anybody to know her ring is made of glass.
