Don't know where to post this really, but has anyone had the experience of the ring breaking off in a pearl set with a pearl post with a ring. I have had 2 different buyers drop their pearls and have the ring at the top of the post break off. They were two different kinds. One had a big ring on top and the other a standard. Both were 14k gold. Is it a finding flaw, or does this happen? I'm going to try and soak the posts out, but if they won't come out, I guess I have to redrill next to the original post and reset it. Any suggestions, ideas, etc.??
