    Pairmypear84:  My ring is like yours (trio micropave right?) I haven’t had any issues and I wear my ring constantly aside from sleeping. I’ve only had my ring two months, but my pave seems to be really secure. I’m lucky though, my jeweler will replace my little pave diamonds for free if I ever have any issues. Your ring is so beautiful! Is your ring insured? I’d be wearing of wearing such a large diamond out without having insurance

    Love the ring – it turned out beautifully. I have a pear ring too, they’re very eye catching. As to the micropave, my round brilliant is set in micropave as are the two wedding bands I wear on either side of it. I haven’t lost any stones and I wear mine all the time (except to sleep).

    Pairmypear84:  Damn, am I the only one having issues with micro pave? I’ve lost 5 stones since January. I’m so over it I’m ready to get a new setting!!!! I am not even rough with it which is what’s upsetting. 

    Lucky you guys, I’m so attached to my ring and it breaks my heart every time I see a stone missing 🙁

    Pairmypear84:  I don’t know if you can see the missing stone but that’s my setting. It was sized almost a whole size smaller which really upset me because I had specifically told the jeweler I wanted the sizing balls put in. As you can probably already tell, he isn’t the smartest dude. He has amazing diamonds but we are so upset about the setting….

    Pairmypear84:  I have been told (and I agree) that wearing rings during sleep is not a good idea.The prongs can catch on sheets, blankets, and there’s always the chance that you might fling your hand up in the night and smash your ring against the brass headboard – hard. Not that I know anything about that……

    Just enjoy your ring and put worries out of your mind. Do you have a loupe? I loupe my ring and then I don’t worry about it. The setting is guaranteed and it’s held up beautifully. Thank you Simon G.

    Pairmypear84:  I had one as my wedding band and one of the diamonds fell out within 1 year. I was super careful with it. I took it off every time I washed my hands, did anything strenuous, showered, slept…and still lost a diamond.

    Theres always problems with micro pave stones falling out.  The only safe thing to do is to get prongs or a channel set.

    I love your ring. With that said, would probably go with something more user friendly since I wear my rings all the time. If you have a jeweler who will replace stones while you wait, and you dont have to send it out to be repaired, then I would probably keep it. If i had to send it out for repairs, I would probably change to a lower maintenance set, as I hate to send my ring away for stretches of time. 

    Its a beauty though! 😉

    For your lifestyle and peace of mind I don’t think a micropave is for you. I had a ring with 42 little side stones once that wasn’t micropave and I still returned it as one of the main factors was comfort in knowing no side stones would fall out. I work with my hands and I was terrified that a stone wold chip or fall out.

    My new ring is much more high set than the old one but with 10 prong set diamonds. I think it’s a lot more durable for everyday wear. And I think you’d feel the same. Your worry sounds a lot like mine.

    Pairmypear84:  I have a pave band (what’s the different between micro pave and pave?) – but I haven’t had any issues. I’m a teacher though, so I don’t do must harsh work with my hands. When I clean/cook at home I always take my rings off. I love the look and sparkle of the diamonds, though, so I personally wouldn’t get a plain band because it’s not really me.

    I have 63 little micropave stones in my ring and haven’t had any problems at all and I only take it off to shower and put on lotion. I’ve been wearing it for 2 years.
