My boyfriend and I have been looking at rings and I loved settings that have pave diamonds on all three sides. The problem is that I want a thin band, but I'm concerned as to how thin the band can be with this type of setting. Please post the width of the ring as well.

Thank you!

I have a three sided pave ring made by Leon Mege. It is 2.2 mm, but Leon can make them even narrower. He wanted to make
my ring between 1.8-2.0 mm but I wanted it wider. 2.2 was as wide as he would go. It is really early here so I can't take any
photos. My old ones were all lost in a computer crash. But if you look up my old thread you should be able to find it. I am sorry
I don't know how to link it. :confused:

Ok I can steal a few from my old thread. The most important thing to remember with a 3 sided pave ring is that if you want to wear
a wedding band you must have a spacer band to prevent damage. Stones against stones will damage each other and you don't want
metal scraping along the head to damage it. I had a spacer made for my ring. I intend to get a thinner band made by Leon to
match. Some days I like the blingy band sometimes it feels like too much.

Mine doesn't have a whole lot on the third side due to the scrollwork near the bridge, but I hope it is close enough to be included in this thread! :oops:

here's my 3-sided pave Michael B Paris Ring ... width is 1.8mm and it's EXTREMELY STURDY, as long as there is some sort of shank height (vertical height) ... my ring is 90% plat and 10% iridium, which is supposed to be sturdier than 950 plat.

SORRY THESE ARE HUGE PHOTOS !

yes, you must wear a spacer if you decide to wear a 3-sided pave ring with an eternity wedding band ... this will prevent the prongs to scratch against each other.

here's a photo of my 1mm spacer ring, it's super discreet !

I had a 1.7-1.8mm and had so many issues with 1 diamond falling out. The same area over and over again (4 times). The jeweler has to be exact with the amount of gold they use and the size of the melee to make this work out for the long run. Sadly, that one melee was a teeny bit too large to begin with so the amount of gold there was too little to make it secure. I would suggest going for 1.8-2mm but make sure you're jeweler is a master at this - even though there might be a warranty on melee replacements, it's just a heartbreaking thing to see your ring with a stone missing.

I have a three sided micro by Cellini in NYC it is super super super fine and though generally sturdy, I have had it nine months and it has been back once for a repair. I will try to post some hand shots.
Sorry the pic is sooo big.

I am really loving the three sided pave. You do have to be more careful with pave than channel set or prong set.

Here is my Mark Patterson ring. I haven't had it very long, so I can't speak to any durability issues, but it is very delicate (I couldn't tell you the exact width - sorry!) and I heart it. There are more photos here.

Thank you all for your feedback and beautiful pictures! Our jeweler recommended a 2mm band, he said that it would be more durable and less likely for diamonds to fall out.

That engagement band looks unique! I would love to know how I can get something similar for my girlfriend. Could you give me any direction?

Thanks,

Sean

FRANKIEXTAH, if you're still on here, could you tell me where your ring came from? I would be extremely interested in getting something similar.
