Please help! I thought I had finally found THE setting...but now I''m scared of the pave. I''m super clumsy and generally pretty hard on jewelry. Add to that the fact that I am also lazy about getting things fixed/repaired, and I''m afraid that the pave is going to be a maintenance nightmare for me.

The problem is that I really like the glittery look of the tiny diamonds on the shank and the way they make the center stone ''pop''. Here is a picture of the setting that I had picked (I swear the picture doesn''t do it justice)- http://store.jrdunn.com/PhotoGallery.asp?ProductCode=rt001RZ3266Ajrd
I was going to have it made with a plain double prong instead of the heart-shaped.

Does anyone know of any settings that look similar but have more securely-set stones? I''m thinking tiny prong-set or channel set diamonds? I also really want a six-prong head, but I figure that could possibly be custom-ordered if the setting didn''t come that way. Does anyone have any ideas??

Ritani is good quality. I wouldn''t second guess it.

I agree, Ritani has a reputation of making a high quality and durable product. I wouldn''t hesitate to purchase a Ritani setting...

Though the setting looks quite delicate they make great quality and I wouldn''t be worried about it, even if I were clumsy!

Ritani does make very high quality pave rings that are delicate and pretty. Bill pearlman sells the line and he is really nice to work with.

Thank you all for your input! It makes me feel a lot better about getting exactly the ring I want. Ritani is coming to a bridal show in my town soon so I am going to ask about any warranty on the stones. I particularly want to make sure that I can have my own jeweler make repairs, as opposed to having it sent back to Ritani (lengthy process, from what I hear.)
