I had asked him the price to get them certified. He said it's only about $1200 or so, and he recommends it. Rubies, do you know what measurements your stones are? And your finger size is tiny I know, but was it a size 4 or 5? I'm wondering if I should up it to 1 ct each stones, or try to see if I can find a .75 single emerald cut stone to see on my finger. I can't find any eternity bands that are complete and local to see what they would look like on.

I would get something under 1ct as you will likely pay a premium for hitting the 1ct mark. The band may also be uncommon the larger you go, just a consideration.

Hi classicallychic!
I'm so sorry but I don't have the ring with me and I won't have it until Friday. But no worries! Friday afternoon I will post the measurement of the stones. :D
My stones are .80 and the ring is between a size 4 and a 4.25.
I have seen an eternity band that was one carat each stone and I have to say it was HUGE. I'm not sure HUGE in a good way.. all personal preference though.
Till Friday. I will measure the stones as best as I can with a mm ruler.:wavey:

I think the largest I’d consider is one that looks like yours on my hands, but the way these are looking so far I’m worried it’s not worth it since it isn’t exactly what I’m looking for. I guess worst case scenario if it’s not the exact size I’m looking for I could sandwich it between two smaller round eternity bands like I’ve seen on here somewhere too. Even though I like the simplicity of just the emerald cut band alone.

Yes.. it's always so hard with a custom piece to leave even just a little bit up to chance. It's such a big commitment and you want it to be EXACTLY what you are looking for.
Here is a seller on EBay who has a lot of large eternity bands. Maybe this will give you an idea as far as sizes and how they look on a hand.. even though that hand is a creepy rubber hand!

Those definitely make me feel like my stones may even be too large. So crazy how much bigger they look set

They do look HUGE. Did you click to the end of the pix and see the rings on that creepy rubber hand? That made me chuckle!
Well seeing that probably make you not want to get one carat each stones..

I did. Hey at least they’re on a finger. It’s so hard to gauge size on just the ring pictures alone. Now if they only had a larger finger to show it on. I want to see some far away pictures of some of these rings on too. How do they look not super up close?

Not that I have a huge eternity ring, but I think with an eternity ring your ring size doesn’t matter as much as your finger length. If you have shorter fingers then a 0.7ct stone is going to proportionately take up more length on the finger than it would if you had longer fingers. So I think the metric you should be used to calculate is not ring size (finger width) as much as it is finger length, because the stones will go all around your finger regardless. A larger ring size will only mean that you need to put more stones in / it’s a bit more expensive.

It’s also cheaper to certify that many stones than I expected. Still not pocket change, but cheaper than I thought!

Very good point! I’ve been using the same metric as I would a solitaire ring. I guess now I have to start paying more attention to finger length and stone measurements.

@classicallychic is Buchwald jewelers close to you? They seem to carry a ring similar to what you are looking for. Maybe you can go try one on there for research.

I looked it up. They’re about 4 1/2 hours from me. Maybe my jeweler can borrow it for a few days? I don’t know if that’s how they work though.

Rubies! Thank you so much. So sorry I made you do that, but it does help a lot. My tester ring should be in on Monday. I’ll post a picture to show how it looks.
