Finally at last here is my 20th Wedding anniversary upgrade. The stone is from GOG and is a 1.322 G VS2 AGS Ideal. Tim at GOG was absolutely awesome to deal with and was so kind patient and funny to a very nervous buyer all the way away in Australia.
The setting is platinum from Garry Holloway at Precious Metals in Melbourne Australia and is a combination of bits I liked of rings over the year that I have been visitng Pricescope The new blingy wedding band is .05 tcw 1.03 set in platinum. Its meant to be a 3/4 wedding band but I think because I have quite small finger it is almost all the way around.
My ring size is 4.5 I think.
Anyway i just LOVE
LOVE
LOVE
IT it is stunning and so white yet fiery
Now for the all important pictures and please forgive the rank amateur attempt

Katebar, I love your solitaire. I looks way bigger than you posted. Beautiful. And your band is very unique. It looks like a channel set band but I see prongs. Congrats.

CONGRATULATIONS on your 20th Wedding Anniversary. Your new rings look stunning, so no wonder you're delighted. They're such classics and look great on your hand. The diamond really pops and looks huge. Enjoy wearing them, they really do look fabulous.

Thanks Gothgrrl. Gary calls it grain set which I think means its smaller than bead but not as small as pave. Anyway its super comfortable

Thnaks JulieN. I had a chanel set in my original eternity band but this looks literally like a row of diamond encasing my finger and you can hardly see the ''grains'' of the setting

Thanks Minimouse. Yes it looks huge to me and no sign of shrinkage yet but you never know
