Trying different stacking looks- my newly reset halo pear by DK with rose gold and platinum diamond bands by Simon G, a princess cut eternity band and the same Simon G band, and a spacer with a platinum french cut CVB band. I’m having fun stacking different bands with this pear. D27709A2-23CD-4C2A-A45F-C3A82FAE6C23.jpeg E57238B3-38DE-495C-8422-9310BA5FA76A.jpeg CF304053-ECCB-4131-98B9-5092E4F7C183.png

Oh my word, the pear reset is divine!! Can I please see a profile shot of the new setting? Absolutely crushing on the graduated diamond halo!

Thanks! I was worried I wouldn’t like it but I’m extremely pleased that I decided to do a graduated halo. It’s different and so far I have not seen anyone in real life with one like it.

For the profile I decided to do petals. I sent DK a picture of a ring I liked and we modified it here and there. 93963F18-ED3C-4BBB-9132-DD6E85C205D6.jpeg 7D1AE680-BBF0-484A-8091-44BBD4567ACF.jpeg 74D9EBC3-BCC2-4E76-8963-0525CCFB80B6.jpeg

Exquisite! The petals definitely work really well, as the overall look is really feminine.

Hi folks

Hope you’re all well. Some serious bling on this thread!

Around Xmas time I started a new thread looking for ideas on a sapphire eternity band for my wife Joan. No interest at the time, I guess you folks are more into diamantes ???

Anyway, after a lot of shopping round, I plumped for a platinum sapphire full eternity from Cherie Gems on Etsy. The ring arrived this morning from the US just in time for our anniversary TODAY. Thankfully, it’s gorgeous (the photos from Cherie when it was made, and stacked with Joan’s EC diamond eternity, don’t do it justice) and Joan, is delighted - she LOVES sapphires).

Interested in your thoughts.

@Chestermana Congratulations on your anniversary & how amazing that it arrived on the actual day!

It's a really pretty ring & I love the velvety deepness of the sapphires. I bet Joan is thrilled to bits!

Love her other rings too! She might need to be careful about the claws of those two bands chewing into each other if she plans to wear them like that regularly though.

Thank you, Alex!

Yes, it was a close call! I was very relieved when it showed up this morning unannounced, after a week sat in various depots on both sides of the pond!

Good point about bands attacking each other. One band rapidly wore lumps out of the prongs of Joan’s ER, fixed by a wee spacer. The two eternity bands actually sit nicely against each other - should be OK, but she’ll keep a watching eye.

Thanks again for the kind words.

I hear ya about goods sitting in random places for ages to get from the US to over here! Frustrating isn't the word!

Glad she's on Claw Watch already, as it can be a very costly repair.

Enjoy your evening & I hope there is yummy food & wine on the menu!

Finally I can stack my ring! Wasn’t able to because my ring’s donut and I don’t like gap. I have no more money left for this stack ring, so I got it from Ebay for $240 after tax.

That is so beautiful! Do you have any closer photos of the band?

Thank you!!! I don’t have one, I’ll take some closeup pictures later. We’re having blackout here lol
I would like to see pics too. My daughter in law is looking for another band for their pandemic delayed reception summer.

Here’s close up pictures. Hope its clear enough. Mine is extremely dainty to the point that I can’t really see the diamonds. But it matches my ring, so I’m keeping it. For $240 its well made. They have Moisy option, with this tiny stones I don’t think anyone can tell the difference whats sthe stones made of. The seller is BartUSGem. Oh, this ring has 5mm gap, its a big gap, I think its better to measure how much gap you want and contact the seller, its made to order so I think we can request the gap width.

I got to try other Etsy seller too, Socialvalue, thanks to PSer. Their stones are more noticeable, the reason I returned it because the gap is only 3.7mm and I need at least 4mm. They only have micropave style tho.

Trying a mixed metal stack by adding this rose gold band. I think when I wear rose gold earrings it will balance out the mix. It’s not really as pink toned as I would like. F4B923BE-4973-46D5-91A5-F0F826519134.jpeg

I love this look on you. I have worn my 3 rings in this order today but ended up switching the eternity to my right hand, as almost 9mm is too much & gets tight when my hands get warm. I wish my rings were thinner & then they could look this good!
