@Matthews1127 I'm struggling with what to pair the ring with! I don't know if an eternity of MRBs would look good, or if I should consider an emerald eternity, or even a band of east west baguettes? I don't want to detract from the engagement ring so I'm considering what the stack width will be. I've also also thought about how amazing an AVC eternity or 7 stone would look be.... might be a good match. I'll likely also wear a small engraved spacer. What would you recommend?Congratulations!! It’s beautiful! Do you have a band selected to go with it?
@Lykame Great question on the stone combo- I actually really wanted to love super ideals, but it turns out that I just don't like round diamonds for my engagement ring finger. I saw both CBIs and whiteflash stones and they were gorgeous, but I couldn't talk myself into it. I previously wore an emerald cut from a previous relationship and so didn't want to do that again. The cushion was a compromise between a fancy cut and a round with more faceting for brilliance.Ooh that's lovely, really love the combination of stones. How did you come up with it?
We definitely need a million more pictures if at all possible and video if at all possible!
Thank you for sharing and congratulations on your engagement! I'm already thinking ahead to when you get married and wonder what type of band you'll put with it...!
@alittlelight The ring size was quite the conundrum! I am a 5 during the day, and my ring spins. At night I swell, become a 5.5.. I swell enough to where it's hard to come over my knuckle when I wake up. I sleep with my rings on and wouldn't be able to put it on in the AM (at least right away) if I took it off. I went larger, and have no idea what to do with the wedding ring sizing now!Congratulations! Your center stone is amazing, and the ring came together beautifully! Thanks for telling us about your relationship with your designer. Did you end up going with a looser or tighter fit on your finger?
@luv2sparkle The rings in my avatar are currently for sale, they are from a previous relationship (updated my avatar!). Their sale will fund some more bling!
@Lvoeshinythings Thank you so much! It was so much fun working with Maytal on this! I love and prefer three stone and accent rings. The pave band was the preference of my fiance. He wanted it as brilliant as possible (who doesnt love a man that loves the bling?!). I was actually scared of the pave and worried about losing stones. Which was dumb because I wore an eternity band for 12 years with no issues at all! Traps ended up not competing so much with the cushion, and shined without detracting or competing. Best part of all though was that it is a compilation of ideas from both myself and FH, the design process is now a very special memory for us!Woowee! Please tell us about your design process and how you ended up chosing the trapezoids with the cushion center and the pave band. So many shapes and they all came together for this killer piece! I just love it. So unique.
@SandyK Thank you, you make me blush! I can't wait to see your stone set too!!!LOVE this ring, your decision to go with those perfect step cut sides, and Maytal!! Huge congratulations on your beautiful ring and engagement! Enjoy every moment.
p.s. — you could seriously moonlight as a hand model!
