Here are some of the pictures taken by Luann of my new half eternity - 10 stones, .10 each, size 6.75 in 14k white gold.. I have not had the ring shipped to me yet because I asked for "surprise" stones and I am a little unsure about what I got, I sent an email about it and will probably hear back tomorrow. It looks like it is set very low, which is what I really wanted

What exactly are you unsure about? It appears that they set surprise stones inside the band. If it's not what you wanted, you should definitely have it fixed.
Beautiful ring though!!

They did set surprise stones inside the band, they appear to be (and anyone else correct me if I'm wrong!) pink sapphires! It's quite lovely, enjoy! ::)

I am just unsure about how surprise stones are supposed to be set.. the one on the left (aquamarine) seems to have small metal beads at the north-south-east-west points, and the one on the right (ruby) seems fine.. The wedding band though looks great and I can't wait to get it!

Looks amazing! :love: Not sure why the aquamarine is set differently...look forward to hearing about the rationale!

I wonder if they set the aquamarine like that because it is a soft stone... It might be a lower stress way of setting a stone in a band as opposed to burnishing it in the band. I could be wrong though, just a wild guess!

Your ring looks beautiful and I cant wait to see hand pics because that is similar to what I *think* I am looking for and I wear
a size 7 which is also close to your size. Great timing!

Maybe you could ask them to bead set the little ruby to match the aquamarine...or just leave them a lone. One could be a
boy setting and the other could be a girl setting (if that makes sense?)

I would guess it has to do with the softness of the aquamarine as well- I was looking into having a surprise aquamarine in my reset (along with 2 other stones) and 2 vendors said they couldn't do that particular stone because it was too soft/delicate. I would ask them to make the ruby match so they both look the same, though.

I love your ring, probably because they made me a similar one months ago. They do nice work! Enjoy it!

This would be my guess as well.

Thank you everybody :) I am very very very excited to get the ring! Luann said that due to the softness of the aquamarine it had to be set that way, so I am going to call Yekutiel in a bit and ask him to do the same to the ruby if he can, just so they can kind of match. I can't wait to get it!

Just got off the phone with Yekutiel.. he is going to have them add the small little beads around the ruby to match. Cant wait to get this ring! Its going to be super hard trying to keep it off my finger for the next 6 months until i get married!

Your new half eternity band looks beautiful and should be a great compliment to your lovely solitaire. Looking forward to more pictures after you receive it.

WOW. Do you mind sharing your ring size? I asked ID for a quote for the same band but I'm worried the stone sizes will overpower my engagement ring :???: . My engagement ring has a center stone smaller than yours (1.22 ct) and my ring size is 4.5. Want to see if I can get an idea of how they'll look together proportionally. Thank you!

my ring size is 6.75 and my solitaire is 1.55ct, the ring is delicate, yet substantial. I was really afraid of it "taking away" as well, but in real life it really complements it perfectly.

Thank you for your reply!!! Sorry I am about to ask a million questions because I'm seriously considering getting this too. Do you mind answering a few more questions as Luann has become non-responsive after our initial email exchange (I read your previous post and you experienced the same thing ;( ) and I don't want to bother her again until I've made up my mind.
-Approximately what's the width of the band?
-Do you feel this is "PS quality" as they state? Is it super sparkly and the stones are bright? Luann said the stones are F/G SI1 quality.

Thats okay! Ask away! I am an honest answerer :)

My experience.... CALL YEKUTIEL. Luann was not of much help until after everything was decided for and made, but Yekutiel makes you feel confident everything will be perfect, he really treats you like you are family. I do not have enough kind words for Yekutiel, and i have let him know how I feel about Luann, he told me to only deal with him directly.

The width is just under 3 mm. I expected it to look more wide in real life and thats what really made me nervous about it overpowering my solitaire.. but as you can see next to my 2mm solitaire, it isnt that big of a width difference between the two, but it is enough to make the band substancial enough on its own (at least to me!)

The stones are nice, I cant tell a color difference between my solitaire, which is an I color, but they are stated to be F/G. They are sparkly, i was getting tons of fire just looking at them inside my kitchen!!

Overall, the quality for the price is outstanding :)
