Hi
I got an enternity prong set band for my wedding band too. I fell in love with the Uprong setting myself. I called many jewelers and asked around which was better
u prong or regular shared prong setting. A few people told me that a regular shared prong (like memoire) would be more sturdy than a U prong.
They said the uprong is just a tad more suseptible to problems as there is not a lot of metal protecting the stones.
I love them both but want to wear my wedding band everyday and want to get the strongest ring possible. So i opted to not get the Uprong.

I have seen many people on here though with the uprong and they all love them! i would call around to jewelers and see what they say.
you can see my wedding band in my avatar, unfortunately i cant wear it til after the wedding this summer

even thought i want to wear it now

WOW! What an AMAZING eternity band. I am literally drooling here at my desk!

I think the things to keep in mind with eternity bands is (1) comfort and (2) rubbing against your e-ring. At 2.40 ctw, I would suggest that you go and try on an eternity band of this size and make sure it is comfortable on your finger. I hear that eternity bands do both some people because the diamonds rub between your fingers. Also, if the diamonds extend a little past the metal of the band, make sure it''s not rubbing against your e-ring, this can eat away at the prongs. A lot of people get a thin spacer band to protect their e-ring, which I think looks gorgeous! Try a search for "spacer band" and you''ll see a bunch of threads on this topic.
