LilOne518:  I originally had a prong 5stone setting which caused me a lot of concerns.  My hair kept getting tangled.  I lost a diamond which the Jeweler gladly replaced but when the 2nd one fell out, I was through.  I returned it and replace it with a similiar diamond band, same weight but with a U shape setting.  Now, I have peace of mind and I can wear my wedding set with no worries. Prong settings wedding set1 at work 22 may look nice but aren’t practical for me. Sorry for the large photo but the 1st wedding band is the prong setting and the 2nd is the U setting.  I also, change from a 4-prong e-ring to a 6-prong e-ring.  My oval fell out of my 4-prong (I’m so hard on my hands) for peace of mind; I upgraded to a 6-prong.  I couldn’t be more happier.

I love bezel set rings. They are very secure. No worries about prongs!

U prong, similar to shared prong but with U shape cut outs

Shared prong  (uncomfortable in my opinion) this depend on the ring hight though.

Pave. Mind you there are many types of pave, but this is the most common. Also known as classic pave or V pave. My personal favorite, it’s also very comfortable. But this type is prone to losing stones because of the delicate prongs.

Common prong or bead set, this is the style you would probably see most in a jewelery store. Comfortable, and usually will sit nicely against other rings.

4 prong eternity band, probably the most secure, but not the prettiest.

LilOne518:  nope! Not a jeweler, just a jewelry fanatic 🙂 I think the best bet is to go to several jewelry stores and try on tons of wedding bands with your ering, even if you plan to buy online. You never know, you may surprise yourself and end up loving something you never would have imagined.
