emmzsea :  I have a tension setting with channel set diamond band and it’s actually in the shop right now… my center diamond was loose. Thank god it didn’t actually fall out, but I guess I must be rough on it. I wouldn’t have chosen another setting, but sometimes stuff like this happens. Just take it in for regular cleanings every few months and they should inspect it for you, you should be fine.

emmzsea :  haha I never thought I would be one to do it. I thought if a setting was well made I should have no problems right?? Wrong lol. But it taught me to be careful when dressing for sure lmao!

I had an eternity band and each stone had 4 prongs.  Definitely a bit safer.

emmzsea :  I had it made at an independent jeweler in Chicago in the Diamond District.  It was more expesive to have it made that way, but it was nice knowing it was more secure.

emmzsea :  isn’t micropave means 4 prongs on each diamond? Because that is what my jeweler called my 2mm half eternity ring. Have it for 6 years and none fallout (hopefully never lol).

Newgirl87 :  yes, a shared prong setting still has 4 prongs around each stone, but think of each prong as a “T” and it’s wrapped around two consecutive stones.  Whereas on the individual 4 prong setting, each stone has 4 prongs around it.  

So there is more metal when you choose the latter, but each stone has it’s own setting on the band.

I have a diamond halo ER with a pave band from James Allen and a couple of weeks ago I noticed one evening while watching TV that one of the halo stones fell out (thankfully not the main diamond!) I’ve had the ring for less than 3 months so was shocked. I had read about stones falling out on here but didnt think it would happen that fast. I have insurance on the ring but also figured James Allen should cover the damage considering the time frame and that I am very careful with it. They are fixing it now and have confirmed there will be no charge but when I first sent it in they would not guarantee that. They said if there was obvious evidence of damage to the ring there would be a charge. I am glad they are fixing it at no cost but it is an inconvenience not to have it for 2-3 weeks while they fix it. I am in the midst of wedding planning and dress shopping and would like to have my ring for that. I have attached a pic of the ring prior to the diamond falling out. I don’t know why it’s side ways!

I think there is always a risk of stones falling out but if that’s the look you want you get insurance and confirm with the place you’re buying from what their policy is.
