My new to me AVC band! I remember when this band was made and even commented on the thread some years ago. I remember when Rosebloom listed it last year. I randomly reached out to her a week ago to see if it was still available and sure enough it was. I was just in time within a couple of weeks of her sending it to Grace for consignment. Lucky me!

AVC Five Stone Band 1.43ctw Ks it's currently a 7.25 which fits on my middle finger. My ring is a 5.75 so it will need to be sized down to at least a 6 to rock it there.

Here we go!

Thank you everyone!!! I am truly loving this band. The AVCs are really beautiful in person. I keep trying to capture it in photos but when you see it in person your so much more in :love: :love: :love: :love: :love:

My two dilemmas are do I size it for my ring finger which was my original plan. I think I would love it there but seeing how perfectly the ring is made makes me hesitate. That and it is a perfect size for my middle finger. I think I could have had a diamond or two more for this finger coverage though. I know it would be edge to edge on my ring finger which I like that idea more. Just want it perfectly sized if I do. Not sure who should do that for me.

And second... This ring has made me want a larger one. So debating on selling my current ACA solitare ( I was almost going to turn into a three stone just a few days ago) for an AVC or even an AVR. I had no idea I was going to love the performance of these tiny stones this much. My current solitare is a .797 and I don't wear it much anymore. So my worry is that I would probably only be able to purchase about the same size. Then what...don't wear it? Lol. Oye Pricescope. I think I've been wanting more coverage which this band actually does in a really lovely sweet way.

I could
just hold on to the ACA for a while
sell and hold on to an AVC for a while
put the ACA in a pendant
make a three stone later with ACA or AVC/ AVR
sell and find a smaller pair of ACAs for studs which has peaked my interest
or sell and put the money back into the bling fund.

I think seeing that light play on the AVCs would be awesome! Congrats on snagging this beauty! I would somehow trade in the ACA for something else like an AVC or an actual antique cushion.

Thank you friends!

LLJsmom. That vary well might be the plan. These little ones are so amazing.

Tweeter that's exactly what I have been doing all day long. When I should have been watching the sunset I was doing this instead...

Beautiful!! :love: :love: :love:

Love your skinny Cartier Trinity too.

Re the ACA, I'd just sit on it for a while. If you still feel the same in a few months, then perhaps upgrade it to a larger one? Unless you think you'd wear a pendant or a 3-stone ring. I'd make sure whichever you choose, that you'd wear it enough to justify putting more money into it.

I love it SO much and can't believe I didn't grab that one myself!!! :love: :appl:

It sat on loupe troop for a year!!! This ring is a game changer for me for sure! I wouldn't even know if I had passed it up. As you know they look so much more amazing in person. And I almost did and last minute said "Wait I want it"!

Thank you Phoenix! Actually I bought that skinny after I saw your photos! I already owned the 2.9 Trinity but I just had to have the delicate one too. :love: My dh thanks you lol.

I've kind of been sitting on the ACA for over a year. It's rarely had any play time out. It's been benched. I always opted for my gold bands instead. Just not sure what to do. It is a beautiful diamond. The pendant would be the least expensive option.

I was likely in ongoing projects at that time. Too many opportunities, too little cash! lol!

I read back to your ACA dilemma. I am not sure if they'd let you trade it in for a pair of smaller stones or not, but I think that would be a nice idea. I still like ACAs for studs because they show up so well, and I have the AVR e-ring. I do think an AVR/AVC would look better with the AVC band if you ever wanted to wear an e-ring with it. But I think it is fine as a stand alone band or with the Cartier bands or another kind of band. The AVC/AVR selection is limited at the moment, so a lot would depend on whether they have something you want. Diamond prices are kind of low right now, so you could take a hit selling the ACA, depending on when you bought it. I do think it would make a great pendant!

Gorgeous. :love: Personality with presence and old world charm and elegance. Enjoy!

As for your dilemma it's a good one to have. I think an AVR/AVC or actual old cut diamond would be a gorgeous addition and a perfect complement to your new AVC band. :love: :appl:
