Very good points J_Rock. I recently was in SK's office and saw a 5 row pave ring be was working on. Hoping it belongs to a PSer who will post! Also in my conversation with SK, I was shocked how thin he could make a band with 3 row pave. And although I love the look, m real concern would be the wear and tear caused by stacking the wedding band. It seems 1 row of pave would eliminate that issue. Oh well! Perhaps I can dream of a 3 row pave RHR to create one day!J_Rock|1313522241|2992034 said:I think one of the biggest reasons for not seeing much of it is because of cost. Diamond melee costs have skyrocketed...so reason stands that adding additional rows of diamonds will drive up the setting cost significantly. I've gotten some quotes in the area of $6k for 3 row pave. I don't even want to imagine what 5 row pave would cost!
I would say another reason is because of the desire to have the band as thin as possible is in square opposition to cramming diamonds on the shank. Lastly, a lot of people want to wear bands stacked, so that means that wear and tear on the pave is possible....However, with all that said, LM seems to have made a name for himself based on his pave alone, and one look on his site shows you that he does a LOT of 3 row pave...so why aren't more of those rings showing up here on PS, given that LM has such a large and loyal following?
Wow justme1. Very blingy! If you don't mind me asking, do you know the thickness of the band?justme1|1313548162|2992349 said:
You're right rubybeth. I was fishing for pictures of erings with rounded 3-sided pavé bands (as opposed to 3 straight rows of pavé). Admins please feel free to change the thread Title and possibly this belongs in the SMTB forum also? Newbie mistakes!rubybeth|1313621303|2992909 said:I think what you mean is 3-sided pavé, not 3 rows of pavé all next to each other on the top of the ring shank. Like these two:
But not like this:
You might want to use the 'Report concern' button to have the moderator change the title of your thread so more people with 3-sided pavé chime in.
Yep hit report concern button and the admin can change the title and move it yo the SMTR section.pregcurious|1313631030|2993013 said:You can click on "report concern" to page an admin to change the title. I did it once because I spelled something incorrectly and I didn't think it would ever come up properly on the search engine.
Yup, I reported the concern to the moderators. So hopefully they'll update the title and move it to the right forum. Thanks everyone!pregcurious|1313631030|2993013 said:You can click on "report concern" to page an admin to change the title.

OMG...how did I miss your ring before?!?! It is spectacular! This is similar to what I have been yearning for except with curved struts for the head and a rounded band. Have you experienced any issues (ie. scratching, stones falling out) due to your 3-sided wedding band sitting flush? (Love you wb to by the way! So much sparkle!)sillyberry|1313683915|2993420 said:
Thank you! I've only been wearing them together for going on 3 months, so I'm not a great example most likely, but no problems with stones falling out and I can't see any scratching. The stones on the side are teeny-tiny and encased in metal and very very flat. Here is a picture (umm...I'm kind of horrified by the knuckle-hair but I'm posting anyway because it is the most in-focus picture I can find showing what I mean).SC86|1313692212|2993547 said:OMG...how did I miss your ring before?!?!
