    I CAN’T believe I’m posting this. It was NOT supposed to happen. I’m “almost” mad at myself.

    My local jeweler told me about an asscher eternity band he made for a guy two years ago and that it was one of his favorite things- peaked my interest. Especially because this store has a massive inventory- many, many 5 carat plus stones on hand- and they all talk about this “little asscher band.”

    He told me he was going to make one for “stock” but in my size. I said NOOO (knowing I wouldn’t be able to help myself). He then said he would do it in a size 6 and in rose gold (as I would want plat)- but this way I could see it before I commit (unlike the usual make it and hate it)

    Long story short, the ring was done and I went to take a peak and I LOVED the rose gold (to my surprise) soo I gave him the ok to make one in my size.

    That’s when he said, try it on, it’s a size 8! I never even thought to try it on because it my head it was a size 6!

    Sooooo here are my horrible pics!

    Asschers are so mesmerizing. Love the contrast of the rose gold against the white/plat.

    What a fabulous ring, I love Asschers and that looks great on you.

    Didn’t someone say...”I can resist anything but temptation”....wow!
    Enjoy wearing it, it’s stunning.

    That looks awesome :))

    May I ask what size the stones are, what the band width is, and what size your fingers are?

    I am no in position to get anything for myself right now but some serious bling like this is on my Wishlist for the future :D lol

    The ring is a size 8
    4.5mm
    Tcw 3 carat
    26 stones
    So I guess they are a touch over 11 points

    Thank you!

    I have been trying to envisage what different dimensions of square stones might look like - 5mm x 5mm has a nice feel to it in my head, but I think it would be MASSIVE in real life :lol: lol (And vastly expensive!! :( )

    That’s EXACTLY what I would have done- so I’m glad they made it this way. I’ll tell you what will happen before it happens.

    In a few months I will go in and say I want it larger- I’ll get the new ring and regret that I took something “prefect” and yet again bulked it up to the point where I won’t be able to wear it with my other ring.

    I would definitely have a love/hate relationship with your jeweler!:geek2: Boy, does he know how to tempt!

    It turned out gorgeous! Those asschers look amazing and really pop against the rose gold! I'm sorry it worked out so terrible for you :lol:!

    You should share your jewelers name...sounds/looks like he has amazing stuff!

    No, no. Please don't share your jewelers name... For some reason I think you live in my general vicinity. :lol:

    Haha! It’s the Diamond vault in Sarasota. They actually have a trademarked Diamond wall with hundreds of loose diamonds with multiple 5+ carat stones to choose from on hand. The place is nuts!

    LOL

    I think I am similar to you in some ways - I see things I like and WANT but when I get them home, I realise I just like them as an object to look at, rather than something I will wear or will go with anything else... :lol:

    Still, that said... Right hand ring? ;-) :lol:
