Sorry I don''t have any CADs or pics yet, but I will post them when I get them. I decided on platinum with 9 pt diamonds, so it should be around 3 mm wide, probably around 1.8 cttw, size 5.25 (I was told it was better to get a slightly bigger size so it''s comfortable). I tried one one that size at a local jeweler, and it was perfect. Not too thick, not too thin, and it looked great with my ering, and great on its own.

I just placed the order, but I will post pics when I get my CADs in a week or two.

Thanks so much everyone for your input & to those of you who posted pics. I can''t wait!

Now I wonder if DH will let me wear it before our anniversary, at the end of May

Oooo, lucky girl! Sounds yummy and with WF doing it it''s going to gorgeous. I haven''t kept up on your other threads. Is it a RHR or a wedding band? Or just a extra piece of bling to enjoy?

ooooh vespergirl - I can''t wait to see it! How long did they estimate it would take? What setting did you decide on (standard shared prong?). It''s going to be FABULOUS with that gorgeous solitaire of yours! I hope your hubby will let you wear it as soon as you get it!

How exciting. I can hardly wait to see the CADs. I think you made a great decision on the size - 9 pts is perfect IMHO

Hey there! I''m going to pair in with my ering (it''s a 3rd anniversary gift from DH) and move my asscher wedding band to my right hand, stacked with some micropave bands that I have. I can''t wait!

Hey there! It''s going to be set like the Memoire - standard shared prong I guess. I tried on a bunch of different settings, and that''s the one that looked the best with my ering. It should take about 3 weeks to get it - I can''t wait! I think he''ll let me wear it as soon as I get it :)

Thanks! You know, I have to confirm the order by tomorrow, and I''ve considered telling them to narrow it down to 8 pts - just because I don''t want it thicker than 3 mm, and it may be thicker with the 9 ptrs. I will sleep on it & try to look at some more pics on here & then let them know - it''s so hard to decide!

Hmmm 8 or 9 pts -- what did you decide after sleeping on it? I agree with you, I wouldn''t want my wedding band to be wider than my ering. Can WhiteFlash give you a better estimate on the width of 8 vs. 9 pts?

It''s exciting to have to decide diamond point size in an eternity.
I have no qualms about having a wider wedder than the engagement ring, but if I ever wanted to match up an eternity wedding band with an eternity eternity (
) on the other side one day, well, a wide eternity might be waaaay too much for me.
Would you ever be plannning to have an eternity ring to join your set, making it a trio?

Hi guys, I actually went to Tiffany''s today (can''t believe I didn''t think to go there earlier) to try on different bands. It turns out that in my ring size, I really loved the 8 pointers the best (that''s Tiffany''s standard "3mm" size). So, I''m revising my order with Whiteflash now, and the band will end up being 1.6 cttw, size 5.25 in plat. I really loved the basket-style settings at Tiffany as well, but I still think that I''m going to go with the Memoire style setting - it just seems like it will be more practical for everyday wear.

I''ll post the CADs when I get them!
