missismene - I looked up the shop name because I wanted to see if they have a website, and they do it, except they don't have inventory posted, just a few pieces, and it looks like yours is one of them!!! Did they show you the matching band?

Oh, and I realized why I like your ring so much!! It reminds me a great deal of mine. My ring also has the cut-outs under the side diamonds.

Were they able to tell you anything about the history of your ring?

Hi, Missismene. I''m a major lurker and have never posted on this forum - mainly because I don''t have anything worth posting! But I just had to come and say how much I love your ring! I love the low profile and think it would be a mistake to change it. The profile is VERY elegant and has a beautiful "flowiness" to it.

Enjoy your gorgeous ring!
Janet

Loving, I didn''t even know he had a site! That is my ring. I was thinking to have custom bands but now I am liking the one he had with it originally, maybe? Did you like the look?

I would love to see your ring. I am not good at searching on this site.

He didn''t really have any history at all, which made me a little sad. But I have great imaginary ones!

Yes! I adore the way they look together. They were made to be together, after all! If I were you, I would call them, make sure they still have it and see if they can hold it for you until you can come in to see it.

As far as a custom band goes, I think it would be hard to replicate the delicate quality of your engagement ring. Your ring was made by hand, and those two rings were made to go together!! You can always purchase another band to wear with it sometimes, if you'd like. People do that here all the time.

I'm a little worried that the shop may have sold the band already. I can't believe that they wouldn't have shown you the band too. Wait, did you visit the shop yourself? Maybe your FI already has the band?!?!?

In any case, as a precaution, I'd go back to your post where you identified the shop name and ask the moderators to remove that post (hit the report button). I'm sure that may sound a little crazy, but often people will post eBay finds on here, only to find them snatched up a short time later. Maybe crazy, but better to be safe than sorry . . .

I will find my ring link and will post here for you.

missismene -

what a beautiful ring and stone! i chuckled when you referred to your ''little stone''. i think most of us here woul dlove a ''little stone'' like yours!

for my 2 cents worth - i wouldn''t change a thing either. i love vintage and antique jewelry and it''s part of the period style for it to be low set - and yours is very special. i''m right with the post that suggests you get the prongs checked tho!

a beautiful ring - congratulations! :)

Love it love it LOVE it! The stone, the setting, the low profile (but yeah that prong looks a bit precarious) other than that - it''s perfect! Congrats!

Thanks everyone, and when I said my little diamond I just mean it affectionately. It is so gorgeous, I know how lucky I am.

We have been in the process of purchasing, gia certifying, negotiating, etc for the past two months, so when speaking with fi I call it "the little oec that could."

I think it looks lovely just the way it is. Either way, I wouldn''t decide until you have your wedding ring picked out.

Thanks again for all the compliments.
I took the ring to my local jeweler and she said it looked worn and she could reinforce it for me.
So I will do that.
Thanks for all the much needed advice!
