kassieb:  I don’t know that much about the durability, but I will say that I haven’t lost any stones in my eternity band after a year of daily wear. But I do remove my rings when I shower, swim (sometimes wear a stand-in), cook, or wash dishes.

I’ve heard the most durable way to do accent diamonds is channel set, would you be open to that? And if you want it to look a little different you could do milgrain with it.

Get the ring you love, just make sure you get it insured. With pave you are more likely to loose stones, but I wouldn’t let this drive you away from getting the ring you want. Small pave diamonds are very inexpensive and easy to replace. If the ring is made right, this shouldn’t happen often.

I was wanting a e-ring with pave or stones in the band too, then I thought about durability and actually found plain makes the main stone/stones pop more to my eyes.  That said plenty of ladies have pave and it works fine.  If youre worried though how about plain and adding an eternity band afterwards?

I have a micropave e-ring (with a modified brilliant cut center – a modification of the cushion!) and I have not lost any stones.  I also take it off for anything such as cleaning, working out etc, which if you ask me should be the care you take with any fine piece of jewelry.  If you buy from a quality jeweler that guarantees their work and have your ring insured, replacing the small stones if they ever fall out isn’t a huge deal anyway.  I have a friend who has a ring similar to mine, also a micropave band, and has not lost anything in 5+ years.

I would go with what you want for sure. When I got my ring we were told the chances of loosing diamonds increases when you have the ring sized more then 1 size either way. I would have the ring made in your size vs buying and having it sized the way you have a little wiggle room.
