I am planning to order a Pave setting soon, and I've been doing searches here on PS to learn more about Pave care and cleaning. There are some horror stories, but it seems that most people are very happy with their pave despite the inherent challanges.

Current pave owners, if you could do it all again, would you stick to pave or would you choose something else?

I would do it again, BUT, I would do it in platinum and I would make sure there were drilled seats for the melee. I would wait until I''m done raising my kids, though. I do a lot of dishes and clean a lot, and I don''t want to take my ring off all the time.

I love the look of pave and I would definitely buy it again. I haven''t had any major problems, but I realize that at some point I will probably loose a sidestone. However, this is just one of the things you have to accept with pave settings, they are not maintenance free.

I think you can have issues with any type of jewelry given the right set of circumstances. I love my pave and would not hesitate to choose it again. I have not had any problems in nearly two years of wearing my ring on a daily basis and using the ultrasonic cleaner weekly. I have also previously worn pave earrings and a pendant and never lost a stone.

Lol Jake, I''m not as good at polls as you are. I made a selection for "no" but I clicked on "finish", instead of adding a new response. I guess the "no"''s will just have to post.

Someday I''ll get the hang of this posting thing...

To be honest I voted NO. My asscher RHR has been a PITA, and now only wear it on special occassions.

I would not do a 3-sided pave again. However, I would love pave on just the top.
My 18kt white gold ring w/ pave on top has not had any problems whatsoever, but the platinum 3 sided pave is pretty messed up. Different jewelers, so that might be the cause... but i''m thru with 3 sided pave!

Do you want to use an ultra sonic cleaner regularly? If so I would stay away from pave. Also I would only buy pave from a local B&M that replaced missing melee for free. Otherwise you could be paying a fortune in shipping costs.

I''ve had my pave ering for over a year now...and I''ve ultrasonic-ed it more than I should.

I lost my first stone about a month ago - while it was in the ultrasonic. It was replaced for free and my jeweler told me I should be able to ultrasonic it every now and again without any problem.

I LOVE the loook of pave and I absolutely love my ring. I understand that it is a bit higher maintenance than other styles, but I don''t regret my choice for a minute!

I don''t own a pave ring yet but have a Ritani on the top of my possible setting list. From what I''ve learned no matter who makes the ring there is the potential for a stone to pop out, however some makers seem to produce higher quality peices that have little trouble, Ritani being one of them IMO. Just like anything not all pave rings are created equal so educate yourself on the method used to make the ring. I also think one should strongly consider lifestyle when chosing pave. I''m not hard on my rings at all but if I was, or was planning on wearing them 24/7 while doing everything, then I probably wouldn''t choose a pave ring.

That just about sums it up.You get what you pay for(hopefully),although you have to treat rings with a certain amount of care.
