Hmmmm, I’ve personally never seen a hollow ring. I dont think it would be uncomfortable. I think it might be a pain to clean. It would drive me nuts knowing there were germies hanging around in there and i would be obsessed with cleaning it all the time. My ring is solid and i still find myself constantly cleaning it for the germie reason! I might have a slight germie problem! LOL

What is the benefit having it hallowed out? Solely for weight purposes?

I have a RHR that is hollow, but thinner than the one pictured. It gets uncomfortable in the summer when my hands swell. I wouldn’t recommend it.

Actually, I’m going to have the stone reset because of that and the fact that it’s bezel set right now (not a fan).

mine actually looks like that, though not all the way around.it’s just hte part where the diamond is and then a little to either side where the little side diamonds are.  it isn’t uncomfortable at all for me.

The point of the hollow point is to allow dust and dirt to be cleaned out of the basket. Without it, cleaning will be really inconvenient.  I have several rings with this hollow point and you don’t feel it when you wear the ring… at all. I don’t think you should be concerned about the small hollow point.

I have some like that, I find them uncomfortable, and it is hard to clean the inner band.

This one is really uncomfatable, and leaves marks on my fingers. It really digs in when my fingers swell.

I have a RHR like that. It does make cleaning the ring easier – there are lot of baguettes plus I can reach the underside of the stone. It looks great and feels fine.  I just noticed my ering has two hollows under the side stones. RHR:

My Engagement Ring is hollow, because it is an antique (his grandmothers engagement ring from the 40’s) but it isn’t uncomfortable at all! I’ve also been told that it is for cleaning purposes.

I have a channel set band like that and it’s not uncomfortable at all.  It definitely makes cleaning the diamonds easier.

My engagemetn ring is somewhat hallow but it has a lattice over the opening if that makes sense.  It makes cleaning the pave diamonds on the band way easier and makes the diamonds more sparkly.  It feels just like any other ring thought.

Here’s sort of what mine looks like on the inside but mine is more open with bigger holes
