Yeah I think with everyday wear you would def have a problem eventually with that… it’s more of a stacker than a wedding band IMO. Agree with getting the same design beadset or bezel set.

It’s very pretty though! Single prong is just tough, especially to set a marquise (less surface area than the edge of the round)

camoandglitter :  A friend of mine had a band like this except it was all round stones with a single prong in between each.  She wound up losing 2 of the diamonds, not at the same time, but one on 2 separate occassions.  She got it off Etsy though.  I don’t know about the quality of BE although I’ve read good things about them.  I would not trust this style.

If you have them soldered together at the bottom, it should hold up just fine. The jeweler who soldered mine even soldered one prong on my e-ring to the tiny prong on my pave band, just for extra security, but how they solder them at the bottom should be enough security to keep the band from breaking.

If you’re really in love with it, can you insure it with the company Brilliant Earth uses, in case something happens? I’ve been a big fan of the craftsmanship of their rings (of which I have three) but I did insure them all just in case something were to go wrong. Then again, I am not the type of person who would not get something I truly loved for fear that it wont last forever. I’d much rather get the ring I love, insure it, and get it replaced or repaired if needed.  

I have lavalier, and I broke a prong on my engagment ring and had a check from them back before my ring was even done being repaired. It was great.
