We all know this place sucks for advice, but every now and then, someone throws out a useful suggestion. So here goes:
My 10th anniversary is coming up in a few months (get all the "anal" and "divorce" comments out now). My wife's wedding ring is missing 2 diamonds - they're small; they just fell out over time. I want to get them replaced, but I want it to be a surprise...part of her gift. Thing is, she never takes the ring off - ever. How do I get the ring off her finger, and get the diamonds replaced without cluing her in on what I need the ring for?
I think they're called "rufies".

Tell her you have to get it appraised for a homeowners insurance rider.
Stick your finger in her butt, and while she's distracted, cut off her ring finger.
Then, once the stones have been replaced, stick your finger in her butt again and while she's distracted, superglue her finger back on.
It's really not that complicated.
Send here on an exotic vacation to Sierra Leone where she can mine her own diamonds.
Cheat on her.
I think this is a situation where you don't need to surprise her with a ring, since I'm sure you already did that with the engagement ring.
Go to a diamond store, tell them what you need, get some type of documentation to buy, give that to your wife in a card. Even if you don't know the exact sizes of the diamonds, you can get a pretty good estimate, get the ball rolling with clarity and cut, and tell them you'll be coming back with tWife and her ring. I'm sure they can give you something that shows what the transaction will be. Reputable places will be willing to work with you. If said place isn't willing to work with you, go somewhere that is.
I think she'll appreciate the gesture and the ultimate gift, even though it won't actually be in whatever you give her.
wear a ski mask and "rob her"... try not to injure the wife while ripping the ring off her finger.
nah, the performance might give him away...
go the appraisal for insurance rout or need to get it cleaned and have the settings checked to make sure she wont loose anymore bling
For my tenth last year I was thinking a similar idea, but I wanted to upgrade her main stone, instead of wasting money on a stupid shiny rock we went to an all inclusive in DR

Get her an extra piece of estate jewelry that the stones can be temporarily swapped into. Tell her she can pick which pieces she wants the new stones to end up in.
I got mine an anniversary ring that has 10 diamonds for our 10th. You could go that route, let her wear that then get her wedding ring fixed.
Just my opinion, but fixing her wedding ring is kind of a shabby 10th anniversary present. You should just do that anyway.
I agree with the others that is probably not something that you should pick out as a suprise. My wife "solved" the problem of chipped diamond on her wedding ring by creating a whole new ring (with more diamonds, of course). Since her trip to the jewelry store was roughly around our anniversary, I received full credit for the purchase as an anniversary gift. However, there was no way she was going to allow me to make the purchase unsupervised.
That's not the only gift. However, I didn't think the rest of the day was relevant here.
And getting a new ring wouldn't work either - she's not into jewelry much. But I figure her wedding ring should at least have a full set of diamonds, instead of 2 empty slots.
pictures say a thousand words...
