    Micro pave usually has more problems as its much smaller. Regular pave usually still have pretty good sized prongs and shouldnt be a problem.  I have a shared prong pave band and havent had any problems.

    @pinkshoes:  I agree with this.  This is what I have as well (got engaged Halloween 2010, married September 2011) and I haven’t had any problems.  I only take my ring off at bedtime, when showering, when working out or when washing my hands.

    I have a plain setting and it gets scratched. so I get it redipped every year as an anniversary present to myself and Darling Husband thought it was going to get expensive. I realized and told him that we wouldn’t have this problem if we went with a paved setting instead… I still love my rings and won’t change them, but this is something to consider with plain settings.

    I LOVE my pave setting and I haven’t had any issues. It doesn’t get stuck on anything and have had it pass all it’s inspections with no loose stones.

    I have a pave (I think micro pave) band on my e-ring and my wedding ring. Not married yet, so not sure how my eternity wedding ring will hold up over time. But we’ve been engaged for alomost 18 months and i haven’t had any problems with the diamonds on my e-ring. I get it checked every 6 months and I don’t wear it when I’m doing anything intensive with my hands like working out, cooking, or cleaning.

    I just like the look of a plain band more… so my ering is a plain band… my RHR has diamonds fall out every other time I wear it and I’ve gotten to the point that I’m actually scared to wear it! 🙁 I vote plain band but it’s all about what you like personally… don’t worry about stones falling out… mine fall out because they are quite small.

    I have had no problems with my pave band. All the diamonds seem secure and I surprisingly don’t get things stuck in it either. However, my plain portion of my band is scratched to death so they aren’t perfect either. I say buy what you LOVE!

    I just had a stone fall out of my pave band after 4 months of wearing it. But the jeweler fixed it in about 5 minutes and it didn’t cost me a dime, so personally I say pave is worth it. I LOVE the look of it and I knew I’d have to deal with this going in.

    As long as my center stone doesn’t fall out – I’m good to go lol!

    I have a micro pave band and I love it. I have had it for years and never once had a problem. Another reason I would pick pave over plain is it kind of protects the band from showing little scratches or dings from daily wear and tear. I say pave all the way! Plus who doesn’t want a little extra sparkle! 😉

    I have a 3 row pave band that I wore daily that belonged to my mother.  Within a year I lost 3 stones (each cost $50 to replace).  I havn’t worn it since getting engaged.  I was never rough on it I have a desk job and always take my jewelry off at home, etc.

    I’ve had a pave split shank for nearly a year with no trouble so far, *knocks on wood*.
