I think that might depend on how the diamonds are set.  Pave?  Shared prong?  Bezel?

It’s fairly common, so all of my ‘hint’ rings to my Fiance only had diamonds going 3/4 of the way around the band.    That way should i bang my hand on a hard surface/or grab things – the diamond portion won’t be affected.    My wedding band is designed in the same manner.

I’d look for something 3/4 of the way around…it gives the ‘look’ of an enternity band, with (what I believe to be) a bit more ‘give’.

my pave ring is currently at the jeweler’s getting a diamond replaced. I got it in October 08 and it fell out in January 09. I think its not unusual for them to fall out. Fortunately, my jeweler’s is really embarrassed and replacing it for free. But even if it’s not covered for replacement, they are pretty inexpensive. Let’s just say it’s not stopping me from getting a wedding band that’s pave as well. I don’t think it would make any difference if the diamonds went all the way around or not though.

I definitely think it’s more common with pave diamonds than with shared prong styles.  Get the ring insured, and then you’ll be covered even if something falls out!

From what I’ve read, diamonds set in a pave setting are more likely to fall out (because the prongs are SO tiny).  If you do go with the eternity band, I would go with a shared prong, bezel or channel setting as they are a bit more secure.   Personally, I did not get an eternity band because the ones i tried on were really uncomfortable on my pinky and middle finger where the prongs and diamonds rubbed against them…

My engagement ring has pave’s 3/4 of the way around, on the tops and sides. I’ve lost two pave diamonds since I got it (11/08). I took it back to the original store first and a different jeweler the second time, and both said that you have to have them tightened every 3-6 months on average, because they fall out very easily. 

 I’m worried about my wedding band as well because it’s enough to have to have the engagement ring tightened every 3-6 months but having to constantly check on the band too? But nothing else really matches. Frustrating. And I LOVE my engagement ring.

This happened to ME! My main diamond became loose and I could actually hear it when I shook my hand. It is set in a way that it would never actually come out .. or so the jeweler told us … once we went to him for tightening. When he tightened it up, he said the ones going around the band were loose too!!!!!!!!

My ring is platinum, I heard it’s the stongest, but I think it stretched to fit my finger … if that makes sense.

My ring is channel set round diamonds on the band and four prong on the middle diamond … like "v" looking prongs holding the diamond in place.

Ugh, one of mine just fell out and I’ve had it less than a month. Quite annoying. Does anyone know how much the tiny stones cost to replace?
