The Signs You May Need a Tip or Prong Replaced Are:
- A snag on a sweater or fluffy towel.
If your ring is catching and snagging on clothing (or even your hair) a prong may be damaged. The sooner you bring the ring into us, the better for the ring (and your wallet).
- Feels flattened or thinned out.
Undamaged prongs have a thick rounded top, while damaged prongs may feel thinner with a flatten top. They can also look bent or not even spaced. All these lead to a tip or prong needing to be replaced.
