Thin band engagement ring?

I have a really thin band, and yes, stones have fallen out. The first time one fell out, I think it was because I had it sized. The next time was because I hit my ring against something on accident (not lightly, it was sort of a harder smack). Honestly I don’t know if its because the band is thin or just because pave settings are simply not as secure, but I have a feeling it’s the latter more than anything else. Either way, I just try to be super careful with my ring. I don’t wear it to bed, working out, in the shower, or any time I know I’m going to be hard on my hands.

Mine is really thin and I don’t have any issues n with it. I love the look of thin bands!

i take mine off at home most of the time (little kids/baby) and so it doesn’t seem to have gotten any damage.

I have a 2mm pave band and have had no problems with it so far. I do plan to get it serviced once a year with the place that made it though to make sure the diamonds stay secure.

macielilla:  Thanks for posting this thread! I was thinking of posting one asking to see small bands!

I hope you get a lot of reponses and the ladies state their band size so i can start getting a better idea of what it looks like.

I  have a thin band, although not a halo. I have no problems with it.  I definitely prefer the dainty look to a bold look :-)…..

Mine is 1.7 or 1.8 mm. I could not find many jewelers that provided pave bands less than 2 mm because it was not secure. My band is technically shared prong but honestly, I prefer it to the pave because It looks individual diamonds rather than just a cluster of sparkles. I would highly suggest looking into shared prong band instead of the pave, I think you would find more jewelers will provide a thinner band because it is more secure.

macielilla:  I have areally thin band (1.8mm I think) and I have had no issues (knock on wood) with the stones or anything like that. 

Edit: Oh, I may have the same kind of setting as Krises!

I have a petite pave setting from Blue Nile, it’s about 1.8mm. I haven’t had any problems with stones falling out.

I have a thin band and haven’t had any problems with it in the 2 months or so I’ve had it…but I don’t sleep, shower,cook, or clean in my Ering. It’s the “shared prong” style that a PP was talking about…just make sure you get insurance and you’ll be fine. I was feeling paranoid (about my center stone) and my mom basically said “That’s why you have insurance. What’s the point of having a gorgeous piece of jewelry if you’re not going to enjoy it??”

I have a 2mm band with pave stones, and I haven’t had any trouble with stones falling out or getting loose. I think it has something to do with the particular type of prong setting? Mine isn’t channel set, but it does have a solid side (you can’t see the diamonds from the side.) I don’t know what this is called, but I think it helps protect the stones from getting hit or rubbing on my wedding band. 

My ring was custom made by Rosados Box on Etsy, for what it is worth. (I love it. Dainty but SOLID.)

I’ve got a 1.5mm micro pave band on my ring, and in over a year I haven’t had any trouble.  I do get a “clean and check” done at the jewelers every three months or so and once they told me one of the stones was a little loose.  And although I’ve heard much debate back and forth on the subject, I don’t use an ultrasonic cleaner – I’ve heard it can jostle pave-set stones too much (but who knows, it could be what my own jeweler uses!)

my band is very thin and I love the look of it and have gotten so many compliments on it.
