Hi to all.
I purchased a handmade Halo ring with a center fancy yellow cushion cut that is 3.5 carat.
I need to get a matching band for this ring and am going crazy if I chould get a band that bends around the big diamond or to just get a regular band.
I purchased the ring from thediamond.com in NY and I am very happy with it.
They are suggesting I get a regular alternating band with one yellow diamond and one white diamond or maybe 2 yellow diamonds next to each other and then 2 white diamonds to show the colors in a stronger way.
So I am wondering if any ladies around this blog could give me some tips.
Much appreciated.
Cale.
PS. I am attaching a picture of the ring.

I would probably get a straight band that is just colorless diamonds like the band of your ring. I like having a bit of a gap between rings, and that way you could wear the band alone and it would not look funny. I think yellow/colorless would take away from your beautiful center stone!
Your ring is gorgeous :)

Ditto everything said in this post! I personally don't care for those bands that curve around the e-ring...

We need more pictures of that gorgeous ring of yours! :naughty:

I would also go with a non-curved band in white (clear) diamonds.

Lovely prongs. I'd like a straight band as well. I'm not sure what color though, I'd have to try it on and see whether I liked a plain white or a yellow diamond and yellow gold.

I made a solid box to help bring out more yellow diamond color.
They made the gold on the inside of the box to reflect the light better with the like facets in the gold.
I also think the straight band is better but i will ask www.thediamond.com to send me some pictures and will show them and see what you guys think.
This is one band I had in mind or something like it more delicate in all white or like the picture.

Gosh that ring is gorgeous and looks impeccably made! I would also suggest a thin, straight white diamond band or maybe two stacking bands...one white one yellow.

WOW!! That ring is impeccable! I've only seen likes of that craftsmanship from LM, SK, & VC here! The gold inside the basket is genius! :appl: Beautiful!

I am sooo happy we keep gaining more options for superior, luxury made pave here besides LM the way it was yrs ago. I always knew there had to be more outside the tiny PS world! Thanks for sharing!!

Man, that box is going to make it a beast to clean! Any suggestions from www.thediamond.com as to how to go about it?

HI:

Two threads about the same thing--and only stock ER photos on which to render opinions. How does one give advice if one cannot see what the choices are?

My advice? If you want others opinions of how specific rings look with your new ring on "your" finger--then provide real life examples! E.g. show us how each style looks: e.g plain band with ring, yellow bands with rings, single ring or stackers....etc....etc.... Show us the real thing, and believe me, you'll get opinions!

cheers--Sharon

I agree with the seller suggestion. Straight line eternity with yellow and white alternate diamonds. It's sure you will have a big gap but impossible to do otherwise unless to do custom.
