by LittleSparkle » Sep 27, 2011 Hi all! After receiving my amazeballs AVC e-ring, I decided that I would be wearing my e-ring and future w-band on separate hands so as to avoid damaging my e-ring (I also think it is so pretty that it ought to stand alone!). I planned to wear my wedding band with a very narrow plain band and really wanted something unique and of the diamond eternity variety. I was also leaning towards bezels and milgraining so that the band had a little something in common with my e-ring. I did a lot of band-browsing and found that I just wasn't in love with any of the bezel bands out there. I also really liked the idea of having a one of a kind wedding band. So I did what any crazy Pricescoper would do and built my own dream band! Step 1: Got in touch with the fabulous Marie at Good Old Gold and explained that my one AVC just wasn't enough ( ) and that I wanted to buy many, many more. 12, to be specific. A hand-selected mix of AVCs and AVRS, all around .25 ct. Step 2: Emailed Lesley at Brian Gavin Diamonds. I've worked with Lesley and BGD a number of times in the past and just adore them and really wanted them to be involved in the project. I drew up a few sketches of how I wanted the band to look (light on the metal, heavy on the sparkle, a pinch of milgraining for good flavor...) and sent those off. The project ended up being a bit complicated due to the various shapes/sizes of my AVC/AVR mix, but Lesley and Brian were incredibly patient and helpful and painstakingly designed the perfect band. Lesley was fantastic, as usual, and answered every email and even sent me progress shots. Step 3: Waited impatiently for my band to be complete. Last night I received an email from Lesley informing me that the band was complete and that sneak peek shots were on their way. The band will not arrive until later this week, but I couldn't wait to share the pictorial journey with my Pricescopers. Here are a few early shots of my new band! Will post the sneak peek shots as soon as they arrive and hand shots later in the week. And then the band gets locked away for months and months until the big day!
