My setting has over 200 pave stones on it. I had it sized down from an 8 to a 5 and I have never lost a stone. I bought the setting used a year ago and I wear it constantly. I am not super careful and I ocassionaly bang it around lol. I was very worried about this when we first bought it, esp with it being preloved. 

Micropave is so gorgeous but can be so fragile 🙁

This happened to a friend. The jeweler repaired it and she’s giving it another chance. Four stones since May is ridiculous, though. Personally, I’d insist on a new setting.

I had the same problem with my old ring. I’ve heard a lot of micropave rings dont have actual prongs, but are glued on, and the prongs are just for looks. 

I had a warranty on my ring, but I didnt want to go through constantly having to get them replaced, so I just got a new ring.

This is why clumsy me does not ‘do’ micropave.
