I have a french pave basket with diamonds on the prongs. Mine is 1.5mm though. I’ve been wearing it for a couple years and I haven’t lost any diamonds or anything.

My original engagement ring setting was just like that! Unfortunately I lost a stone out of the pave going up the prongs within the first 3 days of being engaged, and then lost another one 7 months later. While beautiful. I realized it would be an impractical setting for me and ended up exchanging it for something else. Sometimes I wish I hadn’t because I really did love it, but losing diamonds was so upsetting 😫. 1.5 carat on a then size 5 in the pics.

I have a ring with stones on the basket and prongs. I just lost a stone on the very tip of one of the prongs after wearing it for about 5 months. I’m hoping it’s just from the resetting of the main stone. I try to be very gentle with it, but I have a feeling there’s going to be some upkeep!

I LOVE the ‘hidden halo’ look! Ended up going for a more typical halo so that the shank could swoop up to the center stone and avoid me feeling like I had a tiny skyscraper on my finger, ready to catch on hair, clothing, etc. It felt like the right decision for me BUT I love this look – super classic and simple from the top but amazing detail on the side!

Mine is quite different, but it does have 6 pave diamonds on the sides. I love the look of lots of pave set diamonds, but I would worry a lot about losing one if there were tons!

Mine has a 3/4 pave band and hidden halo pave. I’m pretty clutzy and haven’t had any issues with the stones for the last year + of wearing it!

Pave is new to.me as well. I am making certain that I take my ring off before bed, don’t wear it to work ( I’m a nurse). And that it is only worn when I’m not doing anything like housework. Basically, reading at home, watching tv or date night that doesn’t involve shooting lol!
