Hi PS-ers:

This 3/4 eternity band is from Oliver Smith Jeweler in Scottsdale, Arizona.

What I especially love about this band is the center baguette. I see a lot of eternity bands with all rounds, so the center bag was kinda cool and unusual to me.

Stats:
18 kt wg
Four 3.5 mm diamonds (0.64 ctw) F/G, VS
One baguette 0.12 ctw F/G, VS
Six rubies 1.02 ctw

This band was expensive but it was a lovely B&M experience with saleswoman Veronique. She wrapped it beautifully. The store is elegant and current, with a lot of high end jewelry (including a lot of Buccellati) including amazing colored stones/diamond pieces, and even a case devoted to estate jewels. High end watches. A "boho" collection exclusive to Oliver Smith. The attitude of store personnel was professional and respectful yet helpful and not stuffy or sniffy.

Pics! I took A LOT, sorry!

This is so frustrating, I have no idea why my pics are posting sideways, I'm doing the same thing I always do to post! If anyone has advice for me on how to right-side them after the fact, please advise!

Azstonie, I LOVE your new band! I have been wanting a ruby and diamond band for the longest time. I have had my eye on one at Dimend Scaasi -that is all round ruby and emerald cuts. Your band is a lovely combination of both. What a great idea1 I hope you love wearing it every single day. It is truly beautiful!!!!

I love rubies! Congrats. That other ring from the estate sale reminds me of Ashley Simpson's engagement ring given to her by Evan Ross (son of Diana Ross) its splendid.

Kristie, just GORGEOUS. :love: :love: :love:
I have loved this piece ever since you shared it with us and it looks beautiful on your hand! So gorgeous and that unique baguette center makes it that much more special. :appl:

You know I also love that estate ring and I am hoping you buy that too! And Callie, you will have to fight me to try on all of Kristie's new rings LOL. JK there is enough time all around for us both to share. Hahaha. :cheeky:
