eternity bands, channel set or shared prong?
I'm only in the very beginning dreaming stages, but I do want a small blingy band to go with my ring. I am having a hard time trying to decide whether this very plain solitaire would look better with an eternity that is channel set or shared prong....or even bead set, come to think of it! What are your preferences with solitaires? I know channel set bands are safer (same would go for bead set) but I don't know how much I like the look.

I'm all over the place looking at photos trying to decide. Any thoughts?

I'm concerned that the prongs will eat away at the solitaire faster. I suppose with certain styles that wouldn't be an issue...

They will, and all the stones being exposed will lead to breakage at some point. Does this matter?? Up to you. I love the look of shared prong but would prob not get one as my daily wear band.

There are SOME channel set bands I like the look of. And Jenn....I am trying to have this be a mostly daily set.

I have the same feeling about shared prongs.

There are some gorgeous very blingy channel set bands. I do love enkay's princess cut one and have seen some great bead set ones as well.

If I could wear an asscher cut band with my ring, I'd be all set! There are SO MANY gorgeous styles out there!

I think channel set can be great! There are 90s like channel set bands that are a bit meh to me... but with thinner walls I think they can look awesome! And with asschers..... would be amazing!

I agree, thinner walls! An asscher cut band would be yummy!

I have my eye on one right now....but I can't mix those particular cuts. More's the pity too, because it is FABULOUS.
