An engagement ring is supposed to be something to show off, but a Lewisville newlywed's dream ring turned into a prolonged nightmare after the center stone fell out.

The incident was the latest in a string of fixes for the ring, so the couple called NBC 5 Responds' Wayne Carter for help.

The engagement ring had a large yellow sapphire center stone that Bobby Clark designed with the staff at Kay Jewelers for his bride-to-be, Brandy.

"When you're looking for a ring for the most beautiful woman in the world, it's hard to do it without getting a little bit of help," Bobby Clark said.

He even paid extra for a replacement plan in case anything went wrong.

It's a good thing he did. The Clarks went through an eight-month-long saga of issues with their engagement ring.

First, one of the diamonds fell out, then a saleswoman convinced Brandy to have the band welded to the engagement ring.

"When I got it back, it didn't fit. I couldn't even get it over my knuckle," Brandy Clark said.

Once she got it back, there was a family dinner.

"I just saw this look on my mom's face. She was like, 'What happened to your ring?'" Brandy Clark said.

One week after the start of new Kilauea eruptions, scientists say there's no end for volcanic activity. Dozens of homes have been destroyed and thousands of people have evacuated the immediate area around the volcano.

"I looked down, and I had this big gaping hole where my yellow stone was. I'm telling you, I was shaking. I started to cry, I was freaking out," she said.

Her stone was covered under Kay's replacement plan, but when she got it back there was a whole new problem.

Her big yellow sapphire had been replaced with four smaller princess-cut diamonds.

Kay was willing to take it back and repair it again, but the Clarks wanted their money back, pointing out their ring had been repaired multiple times — gone for anywhere from six to eight weeks each time.

They didn't want to go that long again without a ring.

After they called NBC 5 Responds for help we contacted Kay. They told us, "We are dedicated to exceptional customer service at every stage of the consumer experience. Given this, we take all concerns very seriously and work with each customer to come to a satisfactory resolution."

They let Bobby Clark pick out a another stone that was even bigger than the first. Brandy got her ring back in less than two weeks.

One of the things that really helped the couple was that Brandy Clark did all the required inspections of the ring as well. So, her plan was in full force.
