    The clever thing about that band is that because of its mirrored surface, when next to your curved ring it looks curved too! At least in pictures.

    That's awesome and I really like them together.

    Good point, actually hadn’t really noticed that! I think the black and gold combo just appeals to me having been raised a Steelers fan lol.

    The gold band I ordered should be coming today so of course I’ll be back with even more photos later when I get it.

    I had sizes this ring as a index/middle finger ring but kind of love it as an ering Hmm. Not sure if I want to resize it or just use the plastic sized things for when I want to wear it as an ering.

    Versatility seems important to you so I would recommend plastic size things if you're comfortable using them. =)2

    Looking forward to more pictures!

    Pics with the yellow gold band. Also loving the purple nail polish with it. Gold and purple always seem so regal to me.

    Love it with the gold band. Are you also going to matte the band. Btw I have a funny do it yourself way to do it. I had a rose gold band and decided to give it a satin finish. I was too lazy and cheap to find someone to do it. So I just took a white nail buffer block and buffed it and it came out perfect.

    Don't be embarrassed, or sorry. As I was scrolling through the pages on this thread, I kept thinking that your photos are excellent and really show off your jewelry beautifully. I really enjoy looking at them. My camera roll is chock full of terrible photos. Every now and then, I'll luck out with a good one that I can actually post. I was thinking of getting one of the newer iPhones to get a better camera, but I'd rather spend the money on jewelry. But then, I'd want a better phone to take better pictures of my new jewelry. Dilemma!!

    You know, that would be an excellent wedding set, despite your plans for other things.

    Also congratulations on JOTW - there are never too many photos, keep going! :D

    Heh nothing wrong I guess with more than one wedding set! I think I’d like this set because despite being a larger diamond it feels less showy because it’s a colored diamond and I don’t think many people have a reference for how much that costs. Whereas a 2ct round or a blingy 5 stone people have more of a yard stick for. Most of the comments I get about Theia are about her being a ew marquise and the quirky setting. Nobody had done the “omg how big is it”thing which I think happens when they think someone is rocking a big expensive diamond.

    I love this ring! It looks like an evil eye, it's definitely one of the most unique rings I've ever seen.

    My vote is for the regal purple polish or a matte black polish.
