This was my first prong-setting eternity ring. The ring is very pretty, and delicate looking -- just what I wanted. But I seem to catch things in the prongs and end up with little pieces of fluff hanging on to the ring. The solitaire engagement ring "protects" part of this ring, but the palm side is exposed all the time. The diamonds are poor quality and inconsistent when viewed through a loop. But at arms distance, they are great. Perhaps because of me catching prongs, or perhaps because of the setting quality, I have lost one of the diamonds. I am thinking I need to trade this ring out for its channel set sister. Although the ring is pretty, I would probably not recommend this design to a friend.
