I waited all day for my UPS delivery and my band was finally delivered at 7:25pm :roll: . It was well worth the wait though! I just love it!

I have been wanting a simple classic diamond wedding band for some time. I had the BGD Dream band, which was gorgeous, but I felt that it was a bit too distracting and blingy for my solitaire. I would love to have a 2.5 pointer or 3 pointer diamond band in the future but the 5 pointers were a bit much for my eyes. I wanted a diamond band that would be both delicate and durable while providing beautiful sparkle without being overpowering. I decided to purchase a channel set band from Facets or a single cut diamond band from David Klass. I fell in love with single cut diamonds after purchasing a band on Ebay, but the band was too tall for my e-ring. Once I decided that I really wanted single cut diamonds, I contacted David Klass and we started the process of designing my ring.

The other reason that I wanted single cut diamonds is because they, IMO, add a vintage aspect to the band. My previous e-ring set had engraving all over it and was in a vintage style. I loved that set, which was from antiqueengagementrings.com, however, it did not work with my replacement diamond and I wanted a classic, clean look to offset the chaos of raising twin boys- now 4.5 and taking care my first baby (LOL), their father. I love the clean lines of my solitaire but missed some elements of my previous set. I requested a wheat design which symbolizes a bountiful and plentiful harvest as this is something that I always aspire as an end goal in whatever I do, especially with my family.

I received the first set of CADs rather quickly and was totally lost. Thank God for PS! I started a post in Rocky Talk and further fine tuned the vision for my ring while several PSers gave me advice. Mrs_Blop and Diamondseeker2006 kindly held my virtual hand and gave me invaluable knowledgable and guidance so that I was able to effectively communicate my desires to DK. Thank you again, ladies! :wavey: As for David, he was so kind and never indicated frustration at my bumbling attempts to describe what I wanted from him. He was professional and courteous. I will certainly work with David on future projects!

My ring is so sparkly that my mother notices it across the room and her eyes are not that great. The width is wonderful, I can wear it alone and it feels just right. The way the single cut stones sparkle is the perfect complement to my BGD Blue! The expertly executed wheat design and delicate milgrain is just beautiful to look at! I love how the platinum feels and am looking forward to the patina to develop.

Here are the stats-
.40 G/VS Single Cut Stones
Platinum Half Eternity
2.5mm wide x 1.7 mm tall
Loose size 7

LLJs Mom- Thank you! I spent a lot of time trying to figure out what would look right with my size diamond and setting.

TYTY- You are so kind! I absolutely adore it. It feels natural on my finger, as if it was always supposed to be there.

GeorgieQ- Thank you so much! I Love all of the fine details and knew that DK would be able to execute it. His workmanship is superb.

AlexT- You are so sweet. Thank you for your kind words! There were certain times during the design process that I thought to myself-- is this worth all of the agita? But I knew that I had to take a chance. I am so happy that it paid off.

Crystal!! It looks amazing!

The balance with your e-ring is just perfect and the details on the ring are wonderful. It's a lovely, substantial ring and it's going to last forever - and it's also the sort of ring that never goes out of style. What a wonderful addition!

Congratulations; I'm so pleased for you - it's a perfect wedding set!

WOW! that is a beautiful pairing with your solitaire - bright and white and sparkly. I love your engraving and milgrain, it adds the nicest bit of visual texture. And I adore the profile - so low next to your e-ring. You have a gorgeous bling "family"

Crystal -

Just wanted to come back to add - I love your family shots! Thanks for sharing these 'wider photos'; I really enjoy seeing people's collections and their individual taste.

And your new ring fits right in!

ETA - Crystal, if you have time, could you take a couple of snaps of your new ring alone on your hand? I think it will look great as a stand-alone, not just part of a set.

Thank you everybody for your kind words! The kiddos are home today so I won't get to respond to individual posts until later.

Hathalove- My 9 Stone anniversary band is from Whiteflash and is made of 15 pointers. Here is the link :wavey:

MrsB- Here are a few photos that I took yesterday at Starbucks. I completely agree that it can be worn solo! I just love it to pieces!
Major, MAJOR swoon here! I love it alone as much as with your e-ring!

Gorge!!

Your new band is so pretty and great details with the engraving on the sides. LOVE it! What is the size of your engagement ring diamond? The band is very complimentary with it and I'm curious!
