Well it’s TRUE!

    My mom lost her wedding band in the ocean. She mourned the loss but is over it now. It was a 14k yellow gold channel band with round diamonds. Not really her style- she prefers white metals nowadays.

    She likes my aunt’s ring (photo on a finger) and I found some rings similar. My mom’s ring size is 8.5 for a thin band so I’m guessing 9.5 for a wide one.

    If you spot any deals, let me know! My mom and dad are prepared to spend $3k but they’re frugal people so lower is better! Preloved is fine, too. Probably best if the band has the option to be resized, as opposed to being an eternity band.

    @pearaffair I thought I might have found a candidate; however, the size is too far off from being sizeable.

    Have you had a spin through Ruby Lane at all? Sometimes there are some great pieces on there that are just waiting for the right buyer to stumble along and give them a home. I found a few on there browsing through (while watching this boring Super Bowl game); some may be sizeable, but not sure. Either way, I thought I’d pass them along in the event they may be of interest or even perhaps inspiration for having something custom made for her. :wavey:

    One of the rings is Simon g. I have sold my Simon g on eBay so I would look there.

    I think they also use Adwar and Unique Settings for some ring mounts. :wavey:
