    @flowerring:  def say somthing. You can’t even see the pave on your ring :/ my band on my e ring is pretty thin and has somewhat large pave diamonds and it looks so blingy I adore it. I think she should re do it since you specifically asked for less metal

    Is it possible that bigger diamonds were out of the budget, so she worked with what she could?

    @flowerring:  Looks 10 times better!! The pave diamonds that you have are actually a good size..nowhere near the smallest! If you did go bigger I think it would give your ring a different look. Amazing ring 🙂

    I think she may have just used different/bigger prongs to set them in more securely my pave stones look similar In size it just looks like theres less metal

    @MissSweetiepie:  I agree.

    I have paves and micropaves in my ring and they look to be about your size (for example, my band width is only 1.7 mm and entirely composed of paves). My jeweler handmade my set and the diamonds are all French set which really minimizes the metal (both from the top and the side). There are almost no gaps between the diamonds. If you google “French set diamond” and check out the images, you can see the way it’s set so that there’s very little metal showing.

    If you’re feeling disappointed I’d definitely talk to either your FI or the jeweller.

    @flowerring:  For what it’s worth I really adore the flower halo. And how dainty the shank is allows your center stone to pop. 

    However.  Business is business.  Be a polite customer and inquire what your options are based on standard policy.

    What happened is likely that the jeweler isn’t skilled enough to do pave with minimal metal.
