    Hi So the bad news is I lost my dad and I lost (or taken) my 3.8 carat marquis eternity wedding band. As shown in my Icon I have a 3.66 Emerald Cut engagement ring. I am working with Yekutal at ID Jewelry to make me a new band..
    My old ring 3.8 graduated Marquis eternity band.

    I am thinking that I would like to do emerald cut all same size stones eternity band. My question is that marquis shaped stones take up major real estate on ones finger will the Emerald do same.

    if I do 26 pointers (19 stones) 5 carats will this give me enough real estate.

    Also it also depend on budget if I get 4.00 21 pointers is it going to be to small on my fingers. I do not want round brilliant for sure what else would guys suggest if my budget only allows for 3.8 - 4 carats My ring size is app 6.25 ...( I think 6 but I was having to soak my finger to get my 6.00 off my finger )

    Please chime. 5 carats

    Hello!
    I believe as long as you keep your EC’s consistently between 1.45-1.50:1 l x w ratio, the EC’s should take up the length of your finger, like marquise. They should also be narrow enough to give you the elongated appearance the marquise did.
    The immediate difference you will see is the step cut vs. brilliant cut sparkle/flash difference in cut.
    Perhaps, an elongated Radiant Cut Eternity, or an elongated Cushion Cut Eternity would be more “sparkly” alternatives to a step cut switch? That is, unless, you’re interested in such a change.
    I’m a step cut queen, but not everyone favors them.
    Just thought I’d throw this out there, since brilliant cuts & step cuts are so different! A dream item of mine is a full EC Eternity!! If you decide to use EC’s, yours will be amazing!!! :love:
    Another sparkly vs. flashy alternative would be an oval Eternity. Another brilliant cut, elongated shape. Similar to the Marquise, just not as pointed....

    I’m a size 5.5 finger. I wear size 5.5, 5.75 and 6.0 sized rings. My wedding rings are 6’s due to swelling in the humidity, but I could prob get away with a 5.75.
    I am building & creating a 3/4 Eternity Band of Vintage Cut Asschers. I have 7 0.25ct Stones. I would need approx 3-5 more to create a complete Eternity. This ring will also be a size 5.75-6.0.

    Here is my thread:

    I hope this is helpful!!! :kiss2:

    Is there a reason you do not want a marquis eternity band again? Perhaps ask Yekutiel for the width of each band under consideration? @Matthews1127 the oval eternity band is a great idea as it will tick the real estate issue!!

    Thank you! :mrgreen2:
    I believe the Oval Eternity is the closest to the Marquise; ovals are just more rounded at the “corners”. This would be a change from the original, but not a DRASTIC change.
    Switching from brilliant to step cut diamonds, to my eyes, is a big deal. I believe that’s a tough adjustment, even to someone who appreciates both. They are just two different cuts, and perform so differently. It would be a tough transition...at least for me.
    I’m a step-cut girl. I don’t know if I could ever cross over to the brilliant cut side, without having some step cuts mixed in for my “flavor”...lol!

    Nice to see you, Heidi! I am so sorry about the loss of your Dad, and it is very unfortunate that your band was lost! I will say that I really LOVE and emerald cut eternity, but I highly recommend going to try different bands on to see what carat size you need in emerald cuts (or any shape) to give you the appearance you want.

    My marquis has been a nightmare. Ive worn it for 30 years and have lost 12 stones and have had it recasted twice Platnium to 18 K to 14K for strenght. I had lost anotherstone and had it in my bag to print to replace and it went missing (after my dad funeral)

    Hi Diamondseeker2006 nice to hear from you. Yes the crazy thing is there isnt one jewelry store where I live that has anything other than round brillant so on my way to IDJ I will walk down 47th street and try stuff on :) Even fake at Nordstroms was unavailable. I also had graduated stones so the smaller ones didn't bother the back of my finger. I am so curious to try one one I really think I want the EC

    Met”Y” at ID jewelry today. Selected their fabulous 4.00 ctw emeral cut regular eternity band. Size 6.25. I loved the Asschers cut but it wasn’t in my price range. It is going to be beautiful. I am a little disappiointed that there isnt’ a lot of finger coverage like the marquis. I know he makes beautiful rings so now I join the two week club. Photos to follow when it is complete and mailed.

    Diamondseeker2006,

    The anticipation is killing me. The band is going to be 25 .1925 pointers for a total of 4.80. I can hardly wait. I've been googling for hours and no one tube or anywhere can show me what this will exactly look like . Usually you see .20 pointers 5.00 or .17 pointers for 4.8 the anticipations is killing me. Will the stones be too small. Will I be happy ? I am so excited and nervous at the same time.

    I am sure it won't make any difference visually, it's just a mental thing! I went through the same thing... the anticipation is killing me too! I need check in with Jonna tomorrow ;-)

    image3.jpeg image2.jpeg image1 (4).jpeg I got my ring today. I think it is a little large on my finger. It is really pretty. I am not sure it is exactly what I want but it is exactly what I asked for and more. I think I am just used to something else. I feel selfish feeling this way. Here it i with my old wrinkly fingers. Yekutiel did a great job and delivered exactly what I asked for the ring itself it really beautiful, sparkly. I am so appreciative of what he did for me. Thanks a million.
    Total 4.80 total carat weight 25 stones .192 pointers platinum :)
