Im so sorry this is happening to you! ..what about having a new setting made by a different jeweler that will accommodate your enhancer and wedding band and instead of getting pave you could do shared or U prong?

Micro pave is just not a great idea for a daily wear ring in my opinion. I am sorry that you are having so many hassles.

I agree with the previous poster. I think having a new ring made without the side stones (but keep the halo if you like) that will go well with your other rings might be a good idea. 

I don’t know if a new jeweler could add metal to fix the pave or not. 

I am sorry.

I think that should work! The jeweller should be able to design something that compliments the band’s. I looked at micro pave before and the consultant actually called the ring I was looking at the “devils ring” because of that same reason. It’s so pretty I hate you’re having so many issues!

MrsPiggles: If you keep the halo, that’s still pave / micropave. You really have to baby it. 

Your jeweler probably isn’t the best with micropave and if you don’t get quality micropave, it’s a matter of when, not if you’ll lose stones. 

I’m sorry you’re having so many issues. You should talk to Leon Mege or Brian Gavin — they keep coming up as the best in micropave.

MrsPiggles: oh goodness. My ring has pave and at the time, we couldn’t afford Leon or Brian. I don’t wear my ring when I’m washing my hands / dishes, sleeping or doing anything physical.

I basically only wear it when I’m typing at work or doing casual shopping. Even then, I try not to bang it when I reach into my purse. 

If we were to lose stones all the time, I’d upgrade my setting to something from Leon.

I have to say, this is really not a general pave issue that will always come up with pave jewelry. I have had my current pave ring for 8 months without losing any stones, and my previous one for a year without losing a single stone. And just so you see how much pave is really involved, here’s a pic. My previous ring was an extremely similar setting, so just as many stones. And I don’t take my rings off for anything, so it’s really not generally true that you must baby your pave to keep it. 

Getting a new ring with similar dimensions custom made may solve all your problems. I really think your current setting is defective, possibly from sizing.
