This is a detail that is all down to personal preference and depends whether you are looking for extra sparkle from your engagement ring. While diamond set bands are more costly than a plain band, they do bring a unique sparkle and personality to a ring and particularly complement round brilliant cut centre stones, which are renowned for their brilliance.

This is very much up to you and will depend on personal preference and your budget. A half or three-quarters set band features diamonds on just the part of the band that is showing and, depending on the size and quality of the diamonds, is normally less expensive than a fully set one. Another benefit is that both half and three-quarters set bands can be resized in the future. A fully set diamond band, meanwhile, is set with diamonds all the way round the band. Many women prefer this style because rings move and twist throughout the day, and with a fully set band the diamonds will always be on show.
Yes, a diamond set band engagement ring can absolutely handle every day wear and tear, if you treat it with care. We recommend always removing your ring when handling weights or lifting heavy items because the diamond set section of a ring can be more prone to bending.
Yes, it is possible to resize an engagement ring with diamond set shoulders by a maximum of three sizes up or down. Any more and this can affect how the diamonds sit within the setting, increasing the risk of losing them.
