I have a local jeweller diamond by the yard 3 stone white gold necklace made with with an old engagement ring. I no longer wear the necklace as it flips and I have my WF ACA solitaire necklace.
I am thinking of having it upcycled into a bracelet, would you space the 3 stones evenly along the length or evenly along only the side that would be seen when wearing it?

I agree with Dhana. I have a 5 fcd diamond by the yard bracelet and it's constant flipping drives me crazy. I am seriously considering a remake even though it was a Mother's day gift just a few years ago.

An oval bangle with the 3 stones set on the side to be seen , and it won't move ..

This, or a cuff bracelet with either
- two stones on one end and one on the other
- or three together like a triangle and plain on the other side, or an additional diamond/CS opposite the three

Thank you @Dhana @Mrs_Strizzle @88_star
I haven’t worn a bangle for years as they drove me mad when typing. If I go down the bangle route I will get a cheap plain one to test the feel of it .
If not, where would you go with diamond placement on a bracelet? The diamonds are very small so I don’t really want to go to much expense for this bracelet as it would then be more cost effective to buy new.
This is it against a 4mm bead bracelet.

i just had a thought
if the braclete thing doesnt pan out there are other uses for small diamonds

see i have 3 quite small and one small diamond i am having put onto a bar pendent
even though they are so small they should still look in proportion
this is just the website photo but you could get a gold one made not silver
the diamond in the picture is a .1

Whilst getting a sandwich at lunch I spotted this bracelet in Mappin and Webb, so I could maybe try that style. 9EC6D18F-7171-49F1-802F-BAA54B470A7F.jpeg
You can also try in online, so here it is

Personally, DBTY bracelet and necklace are too dainty for me.

I would have the 3 diamonds set in a by-pass bangle to maximise their impact, as seen in this photo. In addition, a bangle is not going to flip as that would drive me nuts!
