Hi there,

Have this new band and I am not loving the claws and the bulk. It hurts when I exercise and I am aware of it all the time.
Love the stones, the sparkle and the uniqueness.

Thoughts on how to reset to make it better?

It's a beautiful ring!

I know many on here favour a U-prong setting that is low & smooth. You might want to look into that?

I had a full eternity in an almost identical setting. It was fine cushioned between my wedding & engagement rings, but I couldn't ever wear it alone. It was spikey & uncomfortable. It also went off round 4 times in less than 4 years, so I had it reset into a beautiful, heavy chanel setting. It's beautifully comfortable now & can be worn alone no problem.

Investigate & try on lots of different settings until you find something that works. Good luck!

Why not keep it for a right hand ring that you can wear occasionally and buy something more comfortable for daily wear?

Most here would advise that you DON'T wear your rings during any intensive activity like exercise or cleaning, even grocery shopping. Especially for an eternity ring. I don't wear my rings in the house at all when I'm home or at the gym. If you feel you must wear a band get a plain 2mm band to wear. You have a good chance of seriously damaging your eternity, the setting and the stones, by giving it that much wear over time.

Probably the most comfortable would be have it made into a channel setting. You could have all the sides rounded and comfort fit like Tiffs does their rings. It would make the band a little wider for the metal but ultimately the most comfortable and safe for the stones, especially if you want to wear it all of the time.

Oh gosh, I love it on your right hand. Seems like it's competing with your engagement ring. Maybe a small channel set princess band for a wedding ring? Make sure it sits low so it's comfy.

You could have the stones set in a bright cut set band with milgrained walls. It will be a lot more comfortable.

I agree that it looks fantastic on your right hand. Have you tried it on that hand for awhile?
