I think it would look amazing with a plain shank! It looks pretty as is, no doubt, but for practical purposes I think the setting change you’re considering might be a good idea.

I think both rings are beautiful! In regards to a band sitting flush, you could always get a curved band for your current ering.

I like the first setting better, but can see where the second might be more practical. That said, my wedding band is about as thin (or looks to be) as yours and is set in platinum; I’ve had it for 2 years with no problems.

I actually perfer your current setting because of all the details on the  mount.  I have a thin shank with pave diamonds and have not had any issues.  As long as your shank is at least 1.8mm the intergcrity of the ring should be fine.  Now you may lose a small diamond or two but that is the risk with that setting.  I do like the setting of the second ring but I don’t think it will be quite as stunning in platinum as it is in yellow gold.  

Plus what about the extra money that would go into the second setting?  Is that a concern?  Just had to ask.

i love the first one! micropaves are gorgeous and like PP said, a curved band would be practical.

I love your first one, and the second is so close in looks that it’s almost imperceptibly different. or maybe i’m just not very observant.

I vote plain shank only because I love them and the second ring will be easier to wear day to day

@Peach2986:  I am a sucker for plain shank halos especially in unique shapes. That gets my vote Cool Setting#2!!!
