After a long search I finally found this french cut band and I am so happy to share it with you!

It is very delicate, 2mm wide and made in platinum. I have no idea what the total carat weight might be but if I counted correctly it has 43 tiny frenchies.

Here are some pictures.

Thank you all very much for your sweet comments! :)

kmystery, Diamondbug it is a vintage ring made in 1936 and I got it at an auction in Europe so unfortunately this exact ring can't be found anywhere, but I am sure there are similar bands out there.

Pyramid, you have very good eyes! It is too big for me and it would slip off my finger if I didn't put another ring on as well. I have talked to a jeweler who says he can resize it, but I am a bit worried since it is a full eternity.

I had tried to upload a picture of the band together with my solitaire but I can't upload pictures for some reason. I also had this problem when I was going to upload the first pictures in this thread, I have no idea why. I'll try again later.

Thank you guys, I am so happy that you like my ring!

Harpertoo, I love your fc band! Despite of the name, I think french cuts are really rare here in Europe. These are the first ones I have ever come across.

I finally managed to upload a picture of the rings together.

Thank you!!! I can't believe I finally have my own FC band after admiring all lovely frenchies here :)

m-2-b, I love your french cut band - you have so many stunning rings!!! I wish my band also had milgrain.

iota15, I found it at an auction in Europe, it was listed as rose cuts so I was very lucky to find it! :)
