I have a gorgeous .5 carat round solitare with 3/4 pavé band as my ering. I’ve always loved the look of eternity rings, and so I was thinking of going for the matching 3/4 pavé band as my wedding band. However, until I had the ering on my finger, I never realized how clumsy/hard on my hands I am! (long story short, this is the second life of the ering! It was a tramatizing experience to say the least!) Now, I’m overly careful with my ering (take it off to sleep, do ANYTHING manuel etc.) so I’m worried that I’ll be just as paranoid with a pavé wedding band. Anyone have any experience or insight on how, um, sturdy a pavé band is or isn’t? If you have one, do you ever take it off? If so, for what?
Here’s a pic of the ring, for reference. The choice is thus between a matching pavé band and a plain, 2 mm white gold.

I’m clumsy, too. So, pave bands didn’t appeal to me. I don’t know how durable they are since I don’t have one but I made sure to get a half-eternity band. This way I won’t band the diamonds when I hit something with the palm of my hand.

I am as clumsy as it gets. My DH for some odd reason got me a very fragile e-ring. Pave and all (I love my ring, don’t get me wrong). The minute after he proposed he warned me of the fragile setting… as I got it caught on something and knocked one of the prongs loose *face palm*.
I’ve gotten used to it though and haven’t had any problems after the intial 6 months it took getting use to it. I bang my e-ring and wedding ring (also paves) daily. I bang them so hard I actually hurt my hand! But so far no problems *knocks on wood*. I do take my rings in every 6 months to have everything checked out and cleaned though.
As you can tell my rings take a beating on a regulary basis so I take it off when I: cook, clean, sleep, shower, going to the beach, working out.
