I think the general rule of thumb is half or 3/4 of the band so that the pavè doesn’t rub or irritate your other fingers.

I have a cathedral setting as well. Mine is abead setting with milgrain. I have 9 on each side and it’s perfect. I always see the diamonds it never spins enough to see metal.

I worried about this too when I was designing a setting. I was all concerned about making sure there was no metal and it HAD to go 3/4 of the way instead of half. Then I realized the set I’ve been wearing for 14 years is only half and I’ve never noticed it, nor has it ever bothered me. 😆 Granted, my ring doesn’t spin a ton, but it definitely doesn’t sit straight 100% of the time.

I just counted mine!! I know it’s half the band, each side has 7 diamonds and the center stone is about 1.75 cts.round I am not sure on the specs of the diamonds on the halo or the pave.

My ring size is a 4.75; however my ring is a 5 and it doesnt spin much thanks to the wedding band that is actually my size. If I don’t tell you, or spin it intentionally you wouldnt know is not eternity.

I am a Kindergarten teacher and I also spend a lot of time at the gym and I asked my now husband when he wanted to know what I wanted that I wanted it to be comfortable for my lifestile. The setting is low and half pave (thats what the jeweller recommended him when they were designing it) and I love! I never take it off and is super comfy/doesnt get in the way

I also have a larger knuckle and my ring does spin a bit, but it doesn’t really bother me. I have a 3/4 pave and even when my center stone is sitting to the side, you still can’t see the plain part of the band. 

Mine is a 3/4 french pave cathedral setting (1.5mm width), 15 diamonds on each side of the band. I didn’t want an eternity band, for comfort reasons and the risk of knocking a diamond out.

ladylynn1112 :  What a gorgeous ring! What size will your main stone be? I have had a cathedral in the past and from my experience as long as you have the right size it doesn’t move much but I have tapered(knuckles is smaller than base) fingers so I know that’s a factor too.

Mine goes all the way down on the sides, It also has a euro shank to help it not spin around on my finger. I find it is comfortable for me. I wear my ring every day.

ladylynn1112 :  

My ring is a micro pave and milgrain  band with a cathedral setting. I’ve only had it for four months now and I haven’t had any issues. The pave covers all but maybe a half inch of ther band so when it spins, which it does slightly, you still only see diamonds.  For me it’s the perfect amount of coverage and very comfy.  I adore it and have zero regrets. 

I bang it around all the time and I only take it off when working out or when I feel it’s a safety concern.  I haven’t lost any diamonds so far but the ring is fully warranted for life if that ever happens, so I’m not worried about that.
