Oooh! The Asscher band looks amazing.
But most important: what sings most to your eyes? And have you been able to try these bands yourself?

Thank you Acinom!

I have tried 'an' Asscher eternity band. Not the one I'd be buying. I have not tried a Lucida band in person because T&Co has retired this line.

I'm concerned that the 3.5mm won't have the presence to stand on it's own like the thicker 4.8mm Lucida. I'm kind of flying blind.

Here is a photo of the Asscher band I tried on - it's a size 8.5 so it's too snug!

Seems like the 3.5mm Asscher band would need a friend... :think:

The 4.8mm Lucida band appears to have a bit more heft...it's returnable, but I have not seen it in person.

I was going to say the asscher until you said the Lucinda is wider!

Accessoried with 2 Pandora bands I had laying around...how greedy is it to want the Lucida solitaire now??? I can't get over this Cut. I'm sorry I've never seen a diamond sparkle so much. img_0719.jpg
