Diamond Set Bands: Functionality and Practicality.

Setting a ring with diamonds all the way around the band is going be about double the cost of just having diamonds in the top half of the ring.

Apart from the cost, the main other issues with fully set bands are the comfort of the ring and the functionality and practicality.

Fully set  diamond bands have no top or bottom generally, as they are in most cases uniform all around. A ring band often takes quite a bit of punishment, just with the everyday use of your hands. Think about all the things that you pick up or touch during the course of your day. When you have gold settings with diamonds under your finger, every time you grasp hold of something, the settings are impacted.

As the ring rotates, the settings on the inside of the hand become the ones on top of the finger and vice versa.  As a result, all the diamonds and claws take a turn in the firing line of potential damage. Because of this abrasion, all the settings may become slightly impacted. The result is that there is a far greater likelihood that the diamond settings and diamonds may be damaged. Diamonds can become loose or dislodged and even drop out.

This can happen regardless of the quality of workmanship. If the person wearing the ring carries out activities that are not conducive to wearing diamond rings of this type, substantial damage to the ring will occur. It would be a good idea to take out insurance on this type of ring, just in case.

Taking Care of Full Diamond Set Bands

A diamond band with diamonds all around should be considered to be a bit more fragile than a standard sort of ring. Therefore, additional care must be taken with them. Making a selection in this area will mean that your ring will require a little greater care and attention. It should be checked around every 18 months or so by a jeweller. This is simply to make sure all diamonds are secure in their settings. The jeweller will also keep an eye on how the ring is being treated.

Sizing the Ring

It should also be said that adjusting the finger size of a fully set band is not often possible. The ring may need to be re-made to achieve the new size. For most of us, our fingers change as we age or have children, or gain/lose weight. So you can see that this is something that should be considered carefully before deciding on a fully set band.

If the above points are understood and more than the usual care is taken, these rings are a great looking option, that will give years of pleasure.
