    @MrsTywinLannister:  Have you considered something without pave? I LOVE the look of pave, but losing stones would be an issue for me in everyday life, and in your OP you said you had already lost stones. 

    I voted #3, but I don’t think you can really go wrong. It all looks fabulous!

    @soontobe_mrs_k:  I voted halo without split shank – its very similar to mine (which I LOVE and get a load of comments on) so maybe i’m a little biased 😉

    There will be a gap between my ER and wedding band too but I like that look 🙂 our jeweller actually recommended it and he’s going to attach them together underneath with the gap as it prevents rubbing and eventually damaging both rings.

    I would go with option 3 i dont care for halo i know to many ppl that have had probs with missing stones you seem to like pave type bands which tend to be very prone to be fragile i would go with option three for durability reasons I love the look of pave bands but went with solitare and Chanel set diamonds my jeweler said this was sturdier option I am CDL driver and i am very rough on my hands and jewerly .. My set is in 14k and my diamond is in 6 prong setting,which I get checked every 3 months just to be safe . In the end it is your choice talk with other jewelers ask them what they believe to be a good secure setting tell them what you do for work and,hobbies this also is what should play a role in your choice it could save you a lot of time. most jewelers will sell a warranty that covers repairs but what they don’t tell you is it only covers factory defects,some plans cover it all . But you will end up with a ring in repair a lot so you have to ask yourself i love the setting but will it hold up to my lifestyle. Do i want to be ring less for repairs often??if i am hard on my hands ?? If you are heavy on your hands then you might wanna think of a ring that has the stones in a more secure setting if you most have a halo or pave diamonds if that what your heart desires then go for the halo but realize you might be sending it out for service more then most. Good look they all are beautiful setting I hope my advice helped and i didn’t offend you in anyway

    I wish they would get your split shank right I love it! But I really love the forth option and I don’t think it will cause the issues ur having

    @soontobe_mrs_k:  Can I vote for you going to another jeweler? Can’t you have your stone removed, get reimbursed for your PITA setting, and take your money elsewhere? If I had to go through not one but THREE settings, I’d chalk that up to them being completely incompetent and would no longer trust them.

    @FutureDrAtkins:  

    @soontobe_mrs_k:  I also vote on going to another jeweler.  I don’t think there should be that many issues with jewelry that should last forever.

    @soontobe_mrs_k:  Love the halo with no split shank! I’m a touch biased, however.

    @soontobe_mrs_k:  Ah ok. Yeah, if that setting is from a casting house, then it could very well be defective. Same thing happened with my first e-ring – kept loosing stones and sending it in, then found out the setting itself was defective so recasts and changing the metal (palladium to white gold) wouldn’t do any good. I like option #2 then – it’s the most similar to yours and actually I went from having a split shank like yours to a shank that splits at the very top so a band will sit flush. I prefer it over the split shank now as I feel like it even makes my fingers look longer/thinner. Just my 2cents! Hang in there 🙂
