Here it is on my right and left hand. The size 8 feels fine. It’s loose, but I wanted that. I feel like I should try to find stones that are closer to 7 mm tall. These are 6 mm and the suite my jeweler found was about 6 mm also. 4177F541-32CF-4EF3-A9C2-3BC4B4896D23.jpeg BDF04092-77E3-4109-B01A-FEDE87478D2C.jpeg

Looks great on your hand. And seems like a great piece to wear and try out for comfort.

It does look lovely on your hand. Seems like you want a "taller" one though?

It does look good. I’m hoping he can find the same carat weight at 75-80 pointers with 7mmx4-5mm dimensions. If not I think I’ll still go for the suite he found at 6mmx4mm.

After speaking with my jeweler it looks like to get those dimensions I’m looking at 90 pointers and upping the budget considerably. He said the set he found were a killer deal and most sources wanted about 10-15k more than that set. Looks like this is the suite we’re going with! I’m so excited, I can’t believe it’s actually happening!

Congrats on deciding with what size stones you'll go with. I think you'll love it! And you got a great deal to boot!

Thanks so much for all your help everyone! I asked him what the next steps are, and he hasn’t responded. I think it has to go to GIA first and that takes a couple of weeks (not sure, but I think that’s what he said). And then we’ll finalize the size saga. The size 8 has fallen off my finger like 10 times yesterday, but it’s very comfortable. I think I’ll just have him made a 1.5 mm platinum band in a size 6.5-7 to wear on top (I’ll test the sizers on to see which works better).

In terms of sizing, my guess is it'd be easier to have the eternity band slightly too large and made smaller by adding a sizing bar/horseshoe on the inside of the shank, then having it be too tight (then all you could really do is grind out some of the metal inside the shank or do a reset...)

HI:

Always go bigger! While I haven't gained any weight over the years my hands have sure changed. My asscher eternity is now a bit "tight".

cheers--Sharon

Yes, I'm terrified if I gain 5-10 pounds I won't be able to wear the ring anymore. I'm definitely wanting to go bigger than make it my actual size now. And I like the look of a looser ring. It's kind of elegant to me for some reason.

Funny.. many years ago when I gained weight due to pregnancy my behind sure got big but my fingers never changed.. :lol:

My fingers gained about a smidge more than a quarter of a size. So just enough for my rings to start feeling a bit too snug but not really worth resizing everything. I did finally cave and resized my e-ring so I could start wearing it again.

Hi classicallychic!
I'm finally home and measured my ring..
I would say 7mm?
Hope that helps! :wavey:

Looks like maybe a HPD ring. My eternity band from them has little heart too. ❤️ 7CB12256-D7D6-462A-92E1-2D688B489545.png

Wow!! What a gorgeous ring Teslagirl1234!
Can you post pix on your hand? It's a stunner!
What is "HPD" I googled it but couldn't find what it meant.
P.S. Hubs has a Tesla and LOVES it!
