Carre eternity reset

I finally got my carre eternity reset.

I didn’t like the side rails for the channel setting when I first got them. But it fitted so well with my asscher that it didn’t bother me. It only bothered me when it was a stand alone ring, but I never did wear the carre eternity as a stand alone. It was always paired with my asscher solitaire. No issues.

it was resized because of weight gain, which meant that there was a sizing bar and not a full eternity. That was ok....

It wasn’t till I got my asscher eternity that another small issue with the height of the carre eternity. It was lower than the asscher eternity. The size of the asscher was right visually. So the height and other 2 issues of the carre eternity got to me.

so, I got to reset my carre eternity to
Include diamonds to make it full eternity again
Same height as the asscher
Thinner side rails...

An incidental finding:

The carre has one stone thathas faint/slight fluorescence, which happens to match my assecher eternity with a medium to strong fluorescence!!

here are a few pics... also getting ready for Xmas and playing with colours! B232D1FA-E701-4387-A950-C5479D5A72EA.jpeg

WOW!! @gregchang35, I like the thinner side rails on your reset. The side by side pics shows the minuscule difference of the rail width as being significant in making the reset look more polished and proportional. Congrats!!

A definite winner! I also much prefer thinner more refined side rails on a channel set, as otherwise I feel the diamonds can be locked in to the metal & look clunky.

You have such gorgeous options!

Yes, the smaller rails really do make a difference! Your ring went in for a rehab and came out more stunning than ever!
