I don’t want to sound rude but I think the quality of your setting is definitely the problem – I would find another jeweler potentially. Unless you’re crazy rough on your ring. I have a pretty substantial round halo w/ micro pave and I never take it off. Nothing has ever been loose or fallen out. Mine was made with platinum – I think that helps too.

I agree with pp. I would find another jeweler. Btw, I don’t have a halo or micro pave, so I can’t speak from experience, but it does sound like shoddy work if diamonds are constantly falling out

I don’t have any advice, but your ring is beautiful. I hope you can figure out a solution. Maybe regular pave, rather than micro would be better? I do really like the look of those chunkier halos, but I can’t remember the name. Hopefully someone can help me out.

My first ring was a pave halo from JTV and I never lost a stone. and it was sterling silver.

I have a petite halo, it’s the Tacori Dantela. I’ve had it sized twice with no stones falling out in the past year.

Did you get your ring resized? Usually with pave setting or rings in general, once they are resized the stones tend to fall off more frequently. My suggestion is have it custom made to your actual ring size, don’t buy it and have to resize with the jeweler.

Hlovestar:  So I’ll lay it out there: I’m not a fan of pave, micro or otherwise. Sure, maybe the quality of your setting is playing a role here, but at the same time it really doesn’t seem uncommon to lose stones from pave settings. It’s just not that secure of a setting. 

I personally would go with a plain shank. (which I did). The shank gets more abuse than the halo. As for the halo itself, you might wish to look at shared prong halos (which I also have). Typically, shared promg settings are used on larger melee (mine are 1.8mm/2.5 points, for reference – you don’t typically find stones smaller than that in a shared prong setting). 

So if you’re worried about stone falling phtot your halo, get a shared pro setting – but you’ll likely also need to make your halo “chunkier”. If you’re worried about stones coming out of your band, skip the stones on the band.

Again, I’m biased. But from the constant complaints I’ve heard, I feel justified in my stance.

Hlovestar:  I believe mine has micros around the main stone and none have fallen out. The ring was made to my finger size and I have heard of rings that were resized having pave stones that pop out… It’s bc the metal is bent to make the ring larger or smaller which shifts the grasp the metal has on each pave.

Where do the stones fall out? Maybe its also because it looks like your pave wraps around the band on all 3 sides. When I was searching, I asked my jeweler about double edge halos. He didn’t advise me against it, but just said I would have to be EXTRA careful with it. Maybe make sure the next setting you get doesnt have the diamonds wrap around.

I have a trio micro pave setting that I used to wear daily, and never had problems losing any stones.  I’m pretty delicate on my jewelry though – I take rings off anytime I work with my hands or do something that could be rough on them.  Perhaps as other posters mentioned there might be a problem with the construction or the repairs?  Maybe start by getting a second opinion from another jewler? My engagement ring has a micro pave setting (not trio set), and has also posed no problems with the setting.
