Jewelers usually won’t mass produce structurally weak tings. But that said, I’d insure it and be careful with it. I wouldn’t say it looks weak as much as not super durable.

I have MoCo’s Eng 295a in a size 4 – which is the same base model, except there is no pave on the basket. I haven’t had any issues with security, and I’m not delicate with my ring. I really don’t think the head is just going to pop off or break easily – though you might risk losing the pave stones on the basket. But that’s a risk you run with any pave.

I had that ring recreated by a Chinese vendor and it seems durable, it doesn’t look great though! Mine is a 1.5 mm but it’s the exact same ring with a 4ct moissy and double prongs in 14k white gold. I have had the ring for several months and no stones have fallen out. Here’s a pic for reference and you can see how bad the side stones look…..I should’ve spent the money on the real design instead of being cheap and having it remade! Good luck and the ring will be beautiful!

There is nothing you can do about the pave, so don’t waste your time worrying about it.  It can be problematic, but so can a random prong or weak spot in the metal when it’s produced/created [all beyond our control].  Just enjoy the process 🙂

Hey honey, wanted you to know that people are shaming your ring on a facebook page. I think it looks pretty and I don’t know.much about design and durability. Maybe you can get ahold of an admin and have them remove the post? Idk. Just wanted to look out for you!

lemonsandlife71 :  I’m so confused. There’s a FB group designed just for ring shaming? And people join just for that purpose?

fyeahjenna :  Thin bands are trendy and have been for some time, so I think you have to realize when you go with that style that you do need to be more delicate with it than with a more substantial setting.  I don’t know anything about the quality of Moissanite Co’s rings but I don’t think I’ve read that they’ve had issues with the head popping off.  The pave is another issue though.  Because the prongs are thin to begin with you’re likely to lose a stone.  That’s the nature of pave.  It’s beautiful, but again not as substantial as a channel set setting.

If you’re always going to obsess with it, then change it now.  I have a pave ring (not on the prongs though) and did lose one stone.  I had it replaced and don’t worry any more about it.  It happens, and I’m not hard on my ring at all.  I can’t even wear it to work, and my ring is a designer setting.  If you get everything checked out every 6 months, and are careful (ie. don’t wear it to do Crossfit or anything rough) then just enjoy it.

It’s beautiful, bee. 

I am just posting to say I’m floored there’s a “ring shaming” facebook group. How pathetic can people get. 😐

lisaeversman :  yes ma’am. Most of the rings are out-of-this-world ugly, like depictions of Pompeii or something crazy like that. Every once in a whole you get some post like these and they are just hurtful, I think.
