Here''s one of the things I''m getting my wife for our 10th anniversary - not leaving anything to the last minute though so it''s here now but she doesn''t get it until June, so no hand picture until then. These are the shots form this morning while my wife was still in bed.

It''s an Etienne Perret starlight band - saw the banner ad on PS before I even registered and they looked beautiful. Finally spoke to Etienne (a very nice man) last week (Saturday) and the finished ring arrived Thursday - way faster than I thought it would be.

It''s a size 10, matte rose gold with blue diamonds (all different sizes) set all around the band.

Oh it''s gorgeous! LOL, I would kill you if I found out it had been in the house that long. I agree that this ring deserves to be given early!

Thanks everyone. I may well end up cracking and giving Bebe the ring before June, but she already knows what her Valentines gift is this year (a throw she wanted for christmas, but was on backorder). Her birthday is the same day as our anniversary, definitely makes planning easier... I haven''t forgotten the date yet
It''s currently stashed in a lock box hidden in with my camera gear - I don''t think she know the lock box is there, let alone where I''ve hidden the keys.

The combination I chose since rose gold looks orange(ish), and in combination with blue stones it''s Auburn colors - Bebe & her entire family are Auburn fans.

What a gorgeous band! I have been drooling over those Starlight Bands for a while now. And this lovely one is not helping me get over the obsession. What a lucky gal! But oh, to have to wait until June... :)

Beautiful scatter band. I have some blue diamond stud earrings and I love them. Would be perfect with that ring.

I got a 10th anniversary band many years ago. I don''t remember exactly which day, or exactly how it was presented. But I always remember it was for our 10th anniversary. Go ahead...don''t wait until June to give it to her. You both might as well enjoy that beauty just that much longer.

Just GORGEOUS. The blue diamonds really pop against that rose gold. She is going to flip!!! Great job for thinking ahead of time and not waiting till the last minute!

It is gorgeous! The blue stones look green on my monitor, so until I read the description I thought the band was made of emeralds set in rose gold. That would not have been too shabby, either! But the blue diamonds are spectacular. I wish you a wonderful 10th anniversary.

I can see who''s side you all are on - give Bebe the ring now you say

, well I won''t
so there.


onedrop: The band is 5mm & size 10, minght sound alittle small for the size, but her wedding band is 4mm.


AGBF: The stones definitely flash green in some light, blue in others - I think the green is from the blue+yellow(rose)=green combination. I think the ring would have shown more pure blue if set in plat or wg, but I wanted rose. I thought about the potential color appearance before I ordered it... So you have to keep color =combos in mind (it''s why people set yellow diamonds in a yg basket even on a plat ring I guess). Green reminds me of emeralds too, and that''s the stone in Bebe''s engagement ring - so it works for me. I thought about asking Etienne if it was feasible to put a plat (or wg) lining in each stones'' setting but I didn''t (figured it would take the price way up even if possible).
