Why do gemstones fall out?

Slight knocking or even just the process of wearing can cause a setting to shift or flex, if it does this, then the result could be that the stone becomes loose.

One of gold’s properties which make’s it so ideal for jewellery is its softness, but as gold is a lot softer than diamond, a loose diamond will wear away a gold setting until there is insufficient metal to hold the stone in place.
