Now that I’ve tried in bands, I need 3mm! 3.5 is too thick to be comfortable

I have seen some, I think. I will look. I was looking for a friend that has a size 9 finger and ran across some. I'll go back this weekend and post.

@Cerulean I know you said plain, but this is lovely. I think it would look great with your new ring as well.


Another with a pattern, just because it's a great find and would be pretty with your ring.


Popping this here for anyone looking for this size as well:


Size discrepancy in listing, but pretty if you are open to chasing/engraving:


A smidge wider than you wanted, but she does returns:


vintage, not antique, from the 60's:


This says it's a 9, but it may be off by interior dimensions. A lot of sellers seem to list two sizes for these bands, which is weird. You could ask or maybe have a little sizing bead added inside if you like it.


smidge over budget:

So I already posted this one in WTB, but @Lookinagain suggested posting it here also. I realize I already did it earlier in the thread but I wasn’t very specific. I’m in the market for a Gypsy/flush set three stone. Best example is one that MaryM was selling a while back based on someone else’s WTB:


Size 5 to 5.5 or even 63/4 to 7 (to wear on index or middle). Old cut stones. Something solid and not lightweight. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen every freaking possibility on eBay and Etsy but maybe I haven’t ha ha or if there are other sites that you guys know of. Budget 1500-2200

Diamonds only or are you open to other stones?

Sigh...I know it is above budget by almost 4k, and is a size 6 but she does offer an 8 month layaway plan. Hmmm. If you put down the 2200, you'd pay about 472 per month. Just wanted you to at least see this.

I promise not to post anymore above or outside of your parameters, but this seemed so much like the one from Marymm that I had to put it here.:oops:

Thanks! But yes so far higher than I want to pay lol. I’m hoping memorystation on IG comes out with one soon. Their pre list prices are super affordable so holding out for that or another that pops up!

I’ve found so many that are close but there’s always something. Like this one - almost perfect but those weird fissures or lines bug me. They look like cracks rather than an intentional design lol. Wonder if they could be buffed out.

Agreed! I saw other rings like this, that had very nice stones, but then the ring itself looked unstable! The only thing I can think of with this one is that it may have had carving/relief that has worn down over the years and by the looks of it, even if buffed out, it would make the ring not-so-substantial like you want. I still will keep my eyes peeled for you tho!

I have one that I’ve been struggling with for a while. I am looking for a pendant in a white metal (wg, platinum) to go with an 18k wg seed pearl chain. Open to crescent moon, starburst, etc. I have a yellow gold pendant that I wear on a yg chain, but it just doesn’t look right with the seed pearl chain. Budget under $500. Photos of pearl chain and yellow gold pendant to give you an idea of what I’m looking for. 9D55F20B-44B4-4789-B53C-EA364BAE7CCF.jpeg 9DC38C81-548F-4EFE-B087-9159F4CB4FD5.jpeg
