Do the diamonds fall out of Bezel eternity band? Can it be worn everyday?

I’m no expert but I believe that bezels are more secure, more expensive and require greater skill to make than prong settings. Bezels are often recommended for people with active lifestyles.

If I were you I’d get the jeweller to explain exactly why he/she thinks a bezel is not secure. His/Her explanation had better make sense.

If you want a second opinion then contact the very reputable online company Whiteflash. They have a 3/4 bezel eternity called “Danielle Jazz”. I know that the company has a policy of not selling anything flimsy.

Germerican Tale :  I have a milgrain bezel bubble eternity band and I was never told it wasn’t suitable for everyday wear. I’ve had it for 2 years with no issues

I have yet to see a site where bezel settings are said to be less secure than prong.

I have a partial bezel set diamond ring that I have worn for 18 years with no problems.

I have a story for this but I think (hope) my story is unusual. I have an eternity ring made from diamonds from my grandmother’s 25th anniversary ring (high sentimental value!). The jeweler dh used for our engagement ring recommended another jeweler to do the autocad for my design and construct the ring. Everything seemed fine. They made me a gorgeous pave eternity band with millgrain. Fast forward eight months after the wedding, I was watching a game at a friend’s place and slammed my palm down pretty hard on the marble counter top when our team scored. Welp, I looked down at my ring right after as I realized I shouldn’t have done that and realized one of the bottom stones was loose. I took the ring in to my local jewelry repair place (not the jeweler who originally made the ring) and I found out the original jeweler GLUED in the stones vs supporting the stones with the gold. I had to pay $300 to have the gold “pulled” to secure the stones. And the repair jeweler said I was lucky more stones didn’t fall out. So, moral of the story: if you’re purchasing from a store you’re probably ok, but if you’re having something made then double check quality and workmanship.

I have never lost any stones and always considered bezel bands to be more secure. If a jeweler says that they can’t make a ring that won’t loose diamonds, I would go to someone else. A well made band will stand up to occasional hits & time. A good jeweler will stand behind their work and replace lost diamonds (for a period of time).

Uhh bezel set is literally one of the most secure settings. I wouldn’t use that jeweler.

I was a goldsmith for a few years and bezel settings are by far the most secure option out there. The amount of gold that’s “rubbed away” from other gold rings is so minimal that you would never lose a stone from it in your lifetime. Unless you’re using an extremely soft gold (we never made wedding bands from 22k or greater because it’s a bit too soft for daily wear) you have nothing to worry about. If your band is rubbing directly against a diamond, that’s a different story, but it doesn’t sound like that’s the case. That being said, I wouldn’t feel confident using that jeweller.
