@6598731ssfse3:  Thanks for linking my thread! ♥ Good memory ahah ๐Ÿ˜‰

My Fiance proposed about a year ago with the ENG 161 and in the first couple months I chipped one of the side stones. Luckily it wasn’t noticeable but we did end up getting it fixed because back in October one of the more obvious sidestones fell out the morning of our e-shoot. I freaked out and super glued it back in which is obviously a bad idea, but i didn’t want out engagement pictures to be ruined ahah. Obviously there was going to be a ton of focus on my ring and it would be obvious if a diamond was missing right beside the Moissanite centre stone.

It cost us about $80 to fix the ring (replacing the chipped stone and resetting the one that fell out, thankfully I found it!). I’m not sure what the MoissaniteCo warranty or policy is, but we live in Canada and so it would be too expensive to ship it back and forth for them to fix it anyways. We decided just to pay for it ourselves and know the ring wasn’t going to get lost in the mail or something.

Another bee on here has messaged me before about her sidestones falling out as well. I think she had about three of them chip/fall out the first couple months after she got it. She contacted MoissaniteCo about it but I don’t know what ended up happening.

It is a gorgeous setting. It’s a little higher maintenance because of the pavé stones, but I love how they look so it’s worth it to me (: If you have any other questions feel free to check out my past threads. MidnightSun has kindly linked one of them above (: You can also PM me with any questions.

the ring we’ll be getting is paved as well, and i did check with the jeweller with regards to this, and i was told if its a platinum setting, the pave will be stronger and less likely for the stones to fall out. maybe this will help?

I know it is not a whole lot of help, but I have had mine since Nov 30th and nothing has happened to mine!!

Also, if you go through Jeweler’s Mutual or something like that, shouldn’t it cover any damage like that?

if you want a similar setting, mine is Eng 144 and it is bead set, so it is a bit more secure. haven’t had any problems whatsoever with mine since i got it (about 8 months ago). i was really torn between 161 and 144, and mainly went with 144 because i like the milgrain.  i have had other pave set rings, and lost 3 side stones from the setting. PS my moissy is amora enhanced, and is 1.5ct on a size 5 finger. ๐Ÿ™‚

i have had the eng700c since august with no issues. the sidestones are set very deeply into the metal, so I think it’s more secure than other pave settings. I love it! 1.25 carat amora on a size 6.5

@chelcom:  I was worried about this too, and I emailed them and said that I was having those concerns, and they said that when we order to ask and they would throw in a couple of extr sidestones. As long as I have extra stones then it’s not too much of  problem for me to5 take it in for repairs. I’d be pissed if the centreston fell out though!

Pave, no matter where you get it, will need stones replaced over time, and depending on how hard you are on your rings, can be more frequent than somone who babies it. So, I don’t think it is so much an issue with the companies worksmanship as it is the style itself. I do believe Leon Mege had an interesting article with his thoughts on the matter that was quite eye opening.

@Ellyson:  what a gorgeous ring! I was considering this setting too, just ended up going with mine because of the milgrain. ๐Ÿ™‚

@sleepyhead22:  Your ring is beautiful! I am in the market for an e-ring and have been eyeballing this exact model, 1.5ct on a size 5 finger, too! Thank you so much for posting pictures! Do you happen to have a picture of it from the side? I know you have one from the side side, but do you have one from the front side? Does that make sense? lol. Like in the picture, it would be from the side, but you could see the whole ring like a circle. Sorry, this is a ridiculous post haha!

@LilliePad:  i think i have some pictures similar to what you are asking for. if you need more, i will post them, though!  i was really worried about the side view of the ring as well… mainly, i was worried about the little space between the bridge and the prongs of the ring. however, i really never notice it on a daily basis.

@sleepyhead22:  Beautiful! Thank you so much for posting, that’s exactly what I was looking for. I mainly wanted to see how far off the finger it sat. I love it, I think I have chosen my ring! Yours is Amora, correct? They are out of Amora right now and who knows when it will be back, so I think I am going to take the plunge and get an FB. Squeee!!
