I've been about engaged for a year now, but still can't stop staring at my engagement ring! I got mokume bands for the wedding bands, and a semi-eternity diamond band as well for "dressier" occasions. (Is it bad that I'm now using wedding bands as engagement ring accessories? Haha.)

Just wanted to share! :)
Info on the diamond: 1 ct, round brilliant, F, VS2 in a 14k white gold band. The diamond band is a shared-prong semi-eternity ring, 11 stones, .8 cts.
Info on the bands: Palladium and silver mokume.

Do you think it looks better with the mokume band or the diamond band? I can't decide :/

Too cool. And your diamond looks much bigger than a 1 ct. Thanks for sharing!

Oh, well I only wear a sz 4.5 ring :) So it probably just looks big on me, heh.
I''m proud of myself for finally learning how to use the macro function on my camera!

It looks huge on you, and very very beautiful! I like it with both bands - I like the bling that the diamond band gives the set, but the Mokume one lends it a much more unique air.

I too love both bands for the bling and uniqueness, respectively.

Thanks guys!
I wasn''t going to get a diamond band, but I was a little sad that you can''t really see the mokume details on my band because it''s so thin (3mm), and shadowed by the diamond. And I just happened to find the band on deep discount (the silver lining to the bad economy I suppose) so I went for it :)

I think whichever band I''m not wearing with the engagement ring, I''ll just wear as a right hand ring :)

Thanks guys :) My FH will be happy to hear that the diamond looks bigger than it is, haha. I thought I'd post a pic of my ring and my wedding dress (because I'm trying to procrastinate, haha).

Yay for shiny objects! (I could have made a really good bird in a past life...)
Hmm..maybe I'll just wear both bands (one on top and bottom), lol...maybe not.

Your pictures are great and the ring is gorgeous! I usually always vote for the plain band but I really like the diamond band paired with your ering setting.

Beautiful, beautiful pics - we''ll take many more too!

Oh, and congrats on your marriage!

Hehe..not married quite yet, 5 more months to go! I was just taking pics of the rings for fun and practice. And the dress picture was to share how it looked with my family (who is mostly overseas)

what a gorgeous, lively stone! Don''t think I can choose a band either; I am all about options!

Haha, maybe I can start a trend of having the "band" be interchangable accessories, haha.

You could get bands with different colored stones to match the color of your outfits or your other jewelry :)

This one would match the red of my wedding dress:http://www.e-weddingbands.com/store/product586.html

Haha. One of my fav quotes from "Friends" is when Monica gets engaged, and goes "You know what shoes would look great with this ring? Diamond shoes!"

Sigh, there''s been a lot of drama with the jeweler I got to make the band. I don''t know where he gets off having such a rude attitude with me, he obviously doesn''t care for customer service (or workmanship judging from recent events).

Long story short, I no longer have that set of bands, a new set should be coming in within the next few weeks though. And hopefully those will stick.

I think maybe it looks big because it reflects so much light? A good cut goes a long way! :)
(In my fiance''s words: I picked the shiniest. Haha, that''s basically what "cut" is in a nutshell...)

Here are more ring pictures
Here are more dress pictures
if you're interested :)



I'm actually in the process of possibly buying a padparadscha sapphire ring to wear on my wedding since it would coordinate so well with the lotus theme (and because they're such beautiful stones!)
