Another BGD Dream Band +Spacer Review -But This One Is Mine!

Christmas came early for me. I bought this band a couple of months ago and now that I have the most perfect spacer band ever, I thought I would share some pics of my dream wedding set with my fellow PS'ers. I have posted a couple of pics of this in other topics but I love the set so much that I wanted to give it a proper

Diamond Band- BGD Dream Band size 6.75
Spacer- .8 mm 18K YG Extra Skinny Ring by Le Cubicule/Etsy size 7
E-Ring- BGD Tapered Tiffany size 6.75

I bought the Dream Band pre-loved on DB. It was a great price for the 11 X 5 pointers of the BGD ideal cut melee. The original owner posted the specs as H/I color. My appraisal, for insurance purposes, came back as G/H color :appl: . I have always wanted the Dream Band ever since I discovered it on PS- thanks to Dreamer_D and her amazing reviews. It just screams married to me. It looks great alone, stacked with other bands or paired with my e-ring. It sparkles like mad with literally blinding sparkle at times. I also think that the proportions look great with my 1.25 ct BGD Blue. It is extremely low, but does graze my e-ring ever so slightly so I searched for a spacer band that would appear invisible.

The invisible spacer band that I discovered, also thanks to PS, is by Le Cubicule on Etsy. I chose the 18K YG hoping that it would mimic my skin color and I was right! It is just gorgeous. I read the reviews and saw that some people thought her bands ran a bit small so I ordered a size 7 instead of the 6 3/4 that I would normally get for my left hand. The 7 is a perfect fit. It is comfortable and provides more than adequate space between my e-ring and the girdles on the Dream Band.

My BGD Tapered Tiffany-- what to say-- she is amaze-balls and I love to wear her! I still enjoy wearing my plain bands with my e-ring, but it is really nice to have options!

Spacer bands. There is a big difference between the .8mm and the 1.0mm band.

Timeless, gorgeous set!!!! :love: :love: :love: :appl: :appl: :appl: :appl:

I have in the past gotten spacers that matched the metal of the other rings in hopes that it would blend in together. Going yellow gold for a super thin spacer is BRILLIANT! It absolutely disappears in the real life perspective! CLEVER LADY!!!!! :appl: :appl: :appl:

You have a beautiful set!!!

I probably shouldn't admit this, but I've been holding my hand up to your hand on my iPad all day! I ordered the BGD dream band about 10 days ago to go with my 1.21 OEC and setting from Love Affair Diamonds - none of which I've seen yet in person! My setting should be ready in about 2 weeks and I'm dying to know what it will all look like on my hand. I also have about the same finger size as you, so your post has really helped me visualize my set on my hand. :)

Thanks for the great eye candy!

Re: Another BGD Dream Band +Spacer Review -But This One Is M

Sorry for my super late response-

PintoBean- I am loving the yellow gold spacer. It gives the best illusion of wearing my e-ring right next to the Dream band.

AlexT- Thank you! As you know, I adore classic sets (like yours) so finding this band was fantastic.

JDDN- I am still quite smitten with the combined bling of my BGD Blue and the Dream Band. Thank you!

Queenie- I am absolutely enjoying my set! I am loving it more and more every day!

Sundial- Thank you so much for the kind words! I am a huge fan of your stunning set. Whenever I see a pic with your new Tiffany channel set band my heart skips a beat.

Ame- Awww, thanks for the compliment my ring twin! :wavey:

Shannon74- Ha ha. You are not alone. I have done the hand to computer visualization many times! You should start a thread on your set. I would love to see it.

MGR, Hegemony Cricket, Rockinruby, Acinom, Ajane5524- Many thanks for the kind words.

Mochiko42- Thank you so much! I am super thrilled with my set. I just love staring at it on my hand. I am so glad that PS exists so that I have a place to share thoughts like this! :appl:

Thank you for the photos. DK is remaking my niece's 11 stone channel set band into something similar and I've asked him to make a spacer. She has a similar skin tone so the photos helped her decide the metal color.

Hi Crystal! I am a long time lurker who's typically been on and off Pricescope. I came across your thread (...but actually remember reading about your new pieces years ago) recently. We have similar "ring" stories. I have a 1.7ct H VS1 Brian Gavin Blue stone in a knife edge setting. I love the knife edge btw. My 5 year wedding anniversary is coming up and I am getting the BGD Dream band with 10 x10 pointers. Again, ironic. I read that you eventually stopped wearing it because it was too blingy. Would you say I might end up feeling the same way?
