Well, I dont have a ton of experience seeing as I’ve only had mine for 8 months, but I did read up a lot on it once someone told me that the pave stones have a tendency to fall out. Luckily, this has not happened to me. I found out that the most common cause of loss of pave stones is resizing. So it is important to order the right size the first time around and avoid resizing if at all possible. I’ve also read that brushes can be a little rough on them. I bought mine from a jeweler who does inspections every 6 months. If a stone is lost, it will be replaced. This is a lifetime warranty. It may not hurt to have one of those, either. I’ve also insured both rings.

I take mine in about once a year to get it inspected, just to be safe that none of them are loose.

Soldering them together will help.  It will prevent rubbing and stop the metal from wearing down.  But with pave, I think you just need to do like previous posters, and have your rings inspected every 6-12 months, and be prepared to replace a stone every now and again.  Leon Mege has some good tips on caring for it here.  https://leonmege.com/index.php/articles/education/micro-pave

Platinum is pretty hard to wear down. Prongs can be replaced. White gold rings are reinforced by dipping them in rhodium plating about once a year. It will be a long while before even a 1.5 mm ring wears down to the point you’d consider replacement. Ever see the real vintage rings from the early 1900s? They can be very thin, they are gold, and in good condition.

My best freind has pave thin bands, not quite as thin as mine. Ive always loved her ring so I ended up with somthing similar. We both do hair and lift and havent had any problems with wear or loss.

1.3mm band 1.5ct/7.5mm center stone
