Bezels are the safest. It’s like an infinity of prongs surrounding the stone. I wear 2 bezel rings with opened baskets so lots of light comes in. I wear my ering all the time and it’s been great so far.

litebrite249:  certainly. This is the best I can do to show you ering and band together on my finger to show they are fairly solid.

litebrite249:  

After years of wear and tear and soap scum, I’ve gravitated away from pave and melee. My five stone rubies/diamonds e-ring has held up well. 16yrs of 80% daily wear (I switch ’em up). Lower profile. 1ctw. 14K WG setting. Shared prongs, 4each. Suburban life.

Mom’s is 14K WG illusion set, with 4 prongs. Side baguettes, bar set. Diamonds. Also low profile. 56yrs. Suburban life.

These two are pictured together as a RHR stack.

Grandma’s is filigree and six prong diamond with bezel set side sapphires. Also low profile. 96yrs. Farm and ranch work. This one is pictured alone.

litebrite249:  it could be a hassle…but a lot of ladies here don’t seem to have issues with their pave falling out all the time..I think it totally depends on lifestyle…I am hard on my jewelry + never take it off .

I have a bezel set, but it is set pretty high. It is very shiny, but then again it is a moissanite.

I take it off at the gym a lot, but mostly because I am scared of degloving. I wear nitrile gloves at work frequently, and I only take it off if I’m changing them frequently. I lost another ring that way once. 

I’m only wearing my band on our tropical honeymoon because I am worried about the ocean and sand.

litebrite249:  I wear my ring basically 24×7 and I always forget to take it off before I go out to the horses. I am trying to do b with that though.  Sorry it’s sideways.  I wanted to give you the side view as I think it best shows how the jewler set the stone deep. It’s a little less sparkly like this but at least I’m not a danger to everyone around me!

UK-bee:  I’d love to share! After seeing your band on the side closer to your heart, I’ve switched to wearing mine that way as well  I always felt like it looked funny as mine is slightly curved but yours looks so great I have to do it

I have what I probably shouldn’t have, but our jeweler reassured me itd be fine. And so far it has. We LOVE being outdoors, especially fishing. So we are outside roughing it quite a bit. The water is our happy place.

As for my ring, it’s a 2 carat pear shape that sits high on a pave eternity band. I have bumped it here and there but nothing to make me hate my ring. I wear it to the gym too! If I’m putting on a sweater, I do flip it inside so it doesn’t snag. But so far so good!
