    I have a ring very similar to the second option. I personally think that adding pave stones to the basket would just make it catch on things more, which could lead to damage and losing the side stones. Also I’m not sure how much you’d really notice the pave basket?

    I agree with @chelbell23.  That extra pave on the basket may look great is super zoomed photos, but IRL I don’t think they will have much of a visual impact or are worth the extra cost. Also, more pave = less metal = diminished durability of the prongs holding your center stone and more pave = more prongs to snag, more crevices for dirt and higher risk of melee loss.

    I like the look of the second one better. I also agree with PPs that having all that extra pave may lead to snagging clothing, potential to damaging pave, etc.

    Agree with everyone, number two. I envision lots of snags with number one.

    The second choice is my favorite! It’s so timeless!
