I got an email this morning informing me my WB is ready for pick up! Can''t wait to see it.


A few years ago
, D bought me a custom made white gold eternity band for my birthday. I wore it all the time on my left ring finger. Since getting engaged last Spring, I switched the eternity to my right ring finger but it hurt in between my fingers
and I wore it less often.

When it came time to decide on a WB, I asked D if he would mind if I reset the eternity so it was more comfortable on my right ring finger (where I plan to wear the WB) and it was more in line with the design of my E-Ring. He agreed.
I don''t tend to switch up my jewelry too often and am sentimental about this ring, so I''m thrilled we have the same stones in the reset.

I''ll post a few photos of the ring before it''s makeover so you can see the ''before'' and ''after''.

Here''s the first shot. You can see it has a lot of metal and is made to sit a bit high on the finger (which is probably the reason why it hurt).

And here it is next to my E-Ring. (As I said before, I don''t plan on wearing them on the same finger...)

I''m heading out to pick up the reset. Hoping to post photos soon!

Thanks so much for posting, ladies!

I just got home and all the natural light is gone. I tried taking some photos anyway but they came out really blurry. I'll post some shots first thing in the morning. Here's hoping for some sunshine tomorrow!

Can''t wait to see your new ring. Are you happy with it, is it more comfortable?

Alright ladies, I''ve taken some photos! (I''ve come to realize, though, I need a new camera!!! The colours are not the greatest.)

Here''s the box the new WB came in....

On it''s own....

FYI, the reset is Leon Mege''s Adrianna wedding band in platinum. The original eternity had 27 16 pointers for a total weight of 4.32 carats. Because the Adrianna setting is low on the finger (and much more comfortable - yay!!!) Leon only needed to use 24 of the diamonds for a total carat weight of 3.84. Unfortunately, I don''t know the colour and clarity of the stones (FI doesn''t remember) but Leon told me they were ''actually very good'' quality.


I now have three little loose diamonds to play with!

Here it is on my right ring finger where I''ll be wearing it come May! (Ok, I admit, I wore it around the apartment a bit last night...
)

And, finally, here it is with my e-ring. As previously mentioned, I won''t be wearing them together. I think the wb can hold it''s own by itself and I''d be worried abut the metal rubbing against the pave of the e-ring.

Hope you guys love it as much as I do!

Oh WOW!!!! CDN that is a gorgeous eternity band! Lucky girl you are!

My mother has an eternity band she wants to get reset and I have been having trouble finding someone to do it. Leon might be a good place to start! Thanks so much for sharing the pictures of your re-set WB!

Wow, it looks fantastic!!

I can''t believe there were 3 diamonds taken away!!! That seems like a huge difference in height!!

why not wear them together with a thin spacer so they dont rub? just an idea, in case you DID want to wear them together. : )
