Hi all. I am looking to add a new band to my ring stack. I found this one on Etsy that I really like but I just wanted to confirm here that it is of good enough quality to sit next to my wedding set which is made of F/G VS ACAs from WF.


If this is not a good choice, can anyone point me in the right direction of bands that are similar?

Can you please post a pic of your current set so we have a visual?

I would keep looking. The band you linked doesn’t look well made. The diamonds will not live up to your ring. If you are on a budget, check eBay for preloved—you can find better quality for a little more. If no budget, check whiteflash.

Thank you. That’s what I am afraid of with venturing outside of WF. I will keep looking.

Brian Gavin Diamonds carries several similar bands. I would bet they'd be a better match for your WF ring.

Thoughts on this one? It would be 18k white gold.

you can check loupetroop and diamond bistro, as well as the pre-loved section on this forum.

My opinion is that if you want a band that is going to have a matching cut quality to what you got from Whiteflash, you're not going to find it on Etsy, and you're not going to find it under $500. If you just want a cute diamond band and aren't particular about cut quality of the melee, go for it. But your post specifically said " of good enough quality to sit next to my wedding set which is made of F/G VS ACAs from WF."

I’d not buy anything from Etsy and save for something nicer from WF. You will be dissatisfied with these. As most things in life - you get what you pay for.

If budget is strict, which is certainly understandable…post on preloved and see if anyone is interested in parting with anything!

Thank you for your reply. I guess I should have clarified. I know I won’t find WF quality on Etsy. I was just looking for a band I could occasionally put on with my rings to change up the style and have it not look significantly of lesser quality. If that’s not possible with Etsy I will keep looking. :read:

Yeah there are high-quality pieces on Etsy but they're going to be priced comparably to high-quality pieces elsewhere. And I personally am skeptical of SI for melee diamonds. Like CVB and David Klass have Etsy stores, but they're priced a lot higher than a lot of Etsy stores.

Then yeah, go for it. Most of us have those! It'll look fine especially from farther away but if you start louping things you'll see the difference, and you may find the melee diamonds different. But it'll be fine if you're not too picky.

Oh okay! That’s what I was wondering. I have seen PSers before with bands similar and have been curious where they have gotten them. I am not very picky I just don’t want it to look silly. :D

The set in my avatar is made by JuliaB on Etsy. Her quality is very good. She did a fantastic job on my set.

I think she keeps upping her game, at least that was the case with mine!
I think she can get lost in the shuffle and that's a shame. So, I plug her when I can :lol:

Thank you, it brings me a lot of joy!

Hi all! Thought I would update. Thank you all again for your help and recommendations. While I was looking on Etsy at JuliaB (loved her work btw) I found another shop QCustomJewelry and fell in love with this little eternity band :kiss2:. I searched here on PS for the shops name and found a few threads where he was recommended so I went for it. I will update again once I have received the ring!
