Its hard to tell by the pics but I think I can see the prongs in the first pic.

From what I’ve heard… pave is held down in the bottom of the stone and shared prong has little prongs that come over the diamond to hold it in place.

I believe that a pave setting has 4 individual prongs on each stone (that’s how mine is) and a shared prong is one where 2 stones are held down by the same prongs that overlap both. My pave setting actually has 4 prongs for each individual stone. Hope that makes sense!

My pave ring doesn’t have prongs at all. Maybe pave is the size of the stone?

The shared prong has small prongs between each set of stones.  In a 2mm size, it will look very similar to pave.  The pave shank on the ring has small globs of metal holding down wach pave set stone.  If you were to look under a loop, you would clearly see the difference between the shared prongs and  the small beads of metal.  But without a loop, when comparing a 2mm band with the pave shank, you won’t really see the difference.

I have that exact ring you have linked to at moissaniteco: the low profile eternity band. I really really love it!

I think the prongs seem very sturdy. not sure (I’ve only been wearing it for 4 months) but I have a feeling this is a secure ring, and I wear it everywhere–to bed, in the shower, etc.

I asked them to customize my ring so it’s a 3/4 eternity. it knocked the price down to $450.  the added benefit is that there are  no stones on the “bottom” side that can get whacked against things (which can possibly bend the prongs). just thought I’d share that tidbit of info.
