Whatever you get, you’ll probably get used to it, so in a sense you’ll be comfortable no matter what.


I find thinner bands comfortable.  My ering’s a plain shank halo, and I’m very happy with the plain shank choice; it’s very comfy and there’s less pave to worry about.  The shank is also thin (<2mm) and rounded, which also adds comfort.  For my wedding ring, I’m pretty sure I’m going with a plain comfort fit band.  The comfort fit really does feel nice, it’s worth it if you can get it.

I have a knife edge pave setting engagement ring.  I felt a little bit uncomfortable at first (I think it’s combination of the knife edge with small diamonds).  After a while, I get used to it and don’t feel any difference anymore.  I plan to get a plain platinum wedding band rather than a pave setting band.

I have pave diamonds all over my e-ring and wedding band. My friend has asked me about the comfort of it. But I’ve honestly never thought about it. I’ve gotten used to the “rough” feel and this girl loves bling so I’ll take “rough” for some bling. ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s a photo of my ring for your reference:

My ring is not pave but the band has little diamonds that go 3/4 the way around. I don’t find it uncomfortable at all. I tried on solitaries and didn’t love them, but they were comfortable too. I know some bees prefer thicker bands, but any band that’s thin will be comfortable whether it has diamonds the sides or not.

My ring has a pretty small center stone with two teensy diamonds on each side, so the part that actually hits my adjacent fingers is smooth metal. The edge of the band is squared off as opposed to round.

It is very comfortable. I sometimes have moments that I worry that I have left my room without it because I don’t feel it on.

I have a knife’s edge solitaire– very comfortable! I also have my FI’s grandmother’s engagement ring which has some side diamonds and I find it very hard to wear all day. With that said, it spins a lot b/c I have insanely large knuckles, and it is a 65 year old ring, so that might have something to do with it.

I imagine I would get used to it if I tried harder! Also, it’s probably easy to put a diamond into a solitaire setting if you realized it was super uncomfortable for you.

You will become habituated to it. Ever notice how you don’t “feel” the watch or bracelet that you wear all the time? Habituation.

I got a solitaire e-ring and will be getting a plain wedding band because I did not want to worry about having any little diamonds falling out.

I agree with previous posters that you will become used to it, but there is something to say for pokey settings.

You could still get a similar look with a channel setting and if you dn’t like the main stone being pokey with prongs you can look at bezel or half bezel settings. I know I didn’t want anything pokey becuase I would with a lot of fibers and hate when they snag.

Personally, in the past I have found that if a ring is uncomfortable it most likely is not properly sized.  Like other bees have said, you’ll probably get used to pretty much any ring you guys pick.

OP, I have an e-ring that has stones on the side similar to the mossy you posted. I do not notice them bothering my other fingers at all! My overall band is not as thick as what that one is, but with my wedding band the full set will be bigger. So you will definitely get used to it, but the stones should not bother you unless the ring is incorrectly sized.
