    Omg how have I never heard of this designer! I mean I doubt I could convince myself to pay the prices but I love the geometrical designs. The “closed” back would make me bonkers though if it’s an eternity ring. I’m neurotic about cleaning my rings, especially step cuts, so I need the backs to be open for my sanity!

    Aw your pupper is so precious!
    I chose Belle because I lost my boy Beau last December and so I named her after him lol. She’s his little spirit sister. So far she is just as lazy is he is. First thing she does when you take her outside is try to go back inside. Failing that, she just melts into the floor and refuses to move.

    Ooo. This would look smashing as a larger men’s band! If you ever want to replicate the look you more than have my encouragement!

    I bet the bracelet is even more elegant in person, these earrings are sooooo much nicer than their photos, I almost bought them, they also had them with bright pink tourmaline cabochons in the centre when I was in there;

    Keith Urban gave them to Nicole Kidman for Christmas a few years ago, I see them on her from time to time in articles and on the TV.

    Oof. The finger muffin topping! Definitely summer finger swell.

    Although given that I’ve lost two rings in the past 2 months to just seemingly have fallen off my finger I feel like tight might be a good thing.

    Just for fun here’s a video next to my rounds on my left hand.

    Thanks! I’ve never been an eternity band person due to worrying about the underside and it feeling weird between my fingers. But this ring is is so low set, smooth, and comfy.

    I still cringe when I hear the little clink when I pick up my coffee mug though. Eek.

    Haha I also like that this band is smooth and rather resilient to puppy razor teeth. Don’t worry she’s not biting hard, she’s doing a good job learning to control her bite strength when playing with her humans.

    This ring is so amazing - I'm with Greg and would also love a larger version for a men's ring!

    Come on MMDs, get cheaper so I can afford to make one... :lol:


    The videos look excellent, thank you for posting :) Given how diamonds look better with two eyes than just one lens, they must look even better IRL!

    Thanks!

    You know, I don’t even know where’d id go to source diamond baguettes. Much less MMD ones.

    You know now that I think about it, when I was comparison shopping it did seem that baguette bands on average were pricier then bands made with MRBs for similar carat weights. Is it because the cut is less common? Less efficient? Or is there some perceived increase in market value to baguettes due to being a fancier shape?
