Do you have problems with your micro pave stones falling out?

Honestly it is not as much upkeep as you may think. I have a pave halo with pave band- tiny diamonds everywhere that I was worried about.  But it hasn’t been a problem at all.  I did need some repair to strengthen the corners of my halo, but that was a design issue and not a pave issue in general.  Since then I’ve had absolutely no trouble with the pave diamonds.  None have fallen out and they all seem secure. I’ve have it for 8 or so months so far.

It really depends on the quality of the ring though.  I have a cheap CZ ring with pave stones and with one drop one of the stones popped out easily.  But with my engagement ring is good quality so all the stones are secure.

I have a micropave setting, and my jeweler made sure that they were all in there before he finished resizing themSmile

Both my Wedding Ring and E Ring are Petite Pave, E Ring is from Blue Nile and my Wedding Ring is from a UK Jeweller, have had my E Ring for nearly 2 years now and have never had any issues with it, I clean it myself and nothing has come loose

Wedding Ring has 3 rows of Petite Pave, and again no issues

I have had 2 different pave erings (and a pave wedding band), and have NEVER lost a stone.  I wear them everyday, even at work, I work in the medical field.  I just make sure I get them inspected every 6 months.

I’ve never had any issues and my rings been banged on walls, shut in drawers, etc lol They’re in there pretty solid, I never have to check on them. I also get it inspected every 6 months per the warranty. If there are any loose stones when they inspect it they tighten or replace them.

My e-ring has a micropave band and we got it from blue nile. I love it. I’ve had it since November and no problems so far! I don’t think it’s hard to clean at all. Just looks super sparkly!

I came upon this thread b/c I am interested in a right hand ring from etsy that is micro pave and very delicate. It’s only 1mm thick and rose gold. I was debating purchasing it b/c I’m afraid this might be a little too fragile, even tho it won’t be for every day wear, only special occasions.

I think this may be a quality issue. For myself, I was hesitant with pave because Tacori has had issues in the past. I was able to speak to them directly, and those issues have been resolved. I was actually told that a ring recently came in for repair that had been in a gruesome car accident. Supposedly, the melee diamonds were all still in their place.

If you have warranty from your jeweller or designer, then get what you love! Otherwise, just be careful. My jeweller told me to also not use ultrasonic cleaners because they sometimes loosen stones, but it’s not a big concern.

That particular band with the 3 rows I’d be concerned about if you plan on wearing it with another ring.  Worn with another ring, the pave on one side will be grinding against the ering which sounds to me like a recipe for losing stones.  

 

I personally have yet to lose a pave stone, and I’ve dropped my ring a couple times on cement floor, to the point where it made my setting crooked and put my centerstone off center, but left the pave unharmed.  However, I only wear my ring 1-2 times a week because the pave makes it a lot more delicate than other settings.  My pave is also limited to my halo, since my ring’s a plain shank halo, so less pave = fewer stones that can fall out.  I baby that thing, and wouldn’t treat micropave any other way.  I also would be wary of pave on a super skinny band – a good jeweler will tell you that a band made that way isn’t intended for everyday way.  It doesn’t have the structural integrity of a thicker band.

@MrsN14:  Same. That’s part of the reason I got the warranty for both of my rings. I have never had one loose or lost.
