    Thanks violet3! Been seeing them more and more lately too. The first time I saw one in person, a canary yellow ex-cut and ex-symmetry one, I was mesmerized.

    Thanks headlight! it's a bit over 1ct and the shank is 1.8mm, but not sure. the ex-cut/ex-symmetry is what catches all the light to make it appear bigger I think. but, had a RB in a previous engagement with a plain, classic band like in your profile pic and those will ALWAYS be my favorite style!

    Oh my this setting is beautiful and unique. Your diamond is tdf, though I am biased since mine is smaller but similar. Yours looks like a million rays of sunshine gleaming amongst white ice. Enjoy!

    Thank you - it’s a funky little ring, and the little blob of sunshine in the middle is always fun.

    Hi Everyone,
    So I finally have my gorgeous engagement ring! I really love it - it's very comfortable and sparkles soo much! The width of the band is perfect. I had been concerned that the diamonds on the side as a half eternity would have been rough and uncomfortable between my fingers, so we modified it to take out 2 diamonds on each side. The workmanship is so smooth and like butter and I could have handled the half eternity but that is ok. The ring is absolutely stunning and I'm just thrilled to pieces to have perfect Hearts and Arrows center diamond and superb melee!

    Oh what a beautiful ring! I am so happy for you! It looks so perfect on your hand and has all the right proportions and design as well as a stunner diamond.

    I love the band! I also like wearing a plain band when my ring has side stones so it actually highlights the outline of the ER. It's kind of tricky, the balance between more bling, and not overwhelming the engagement ring. I switch out all the time!

    Nice match!

    Thanks tigertales! That's a good idea - I was thinking of soldering them because I like them to line up perfectly but that's a good idea to get a plain platinum band to try both ways and see what I like more. The e-ring is 2.4mm, maybe a 3mm plain wedding band would be good to try as well.

    yes, for me, that's key. I gave up on wearing eternity bands for that reason. so beautiful, but oh so scratchy on delicate skin!
    I love that you customized by taking out two side stones...a girl after my own heart when I read that! LOL

    wedding band-wise, I would try and get a 2.5. A 3mm might feel a bit too wide believe it or not...depends on the make, but just FYI.

    That's a great idea - I think I will def get a 2.5 mm platinum band for variety! A girl needs variety for sure! And it's great to know I'm not alone in not tolerating itchy diamonds lol!
    I had tried on so many rings in stores with diamonds going down the sides and it was soo uncomfortable. But this style the Dream by BGD is like butter and totally comfortable. We erred on the conservative side by customizing but if I had known the workmanship would be so comfortable I would have done the 1/2 eternity. But it's ok, I love my ring and I love that it's custom and it's soo comfortable and most importantly, sparkly! Thanks for your support and excitement.

    Congratulations! Your ring is gorgeous!

    I love the look of the band with it too ... so much that I think another one on the other side would also look awesome :wink2:

    Thank you Junebug17! I really love it too. Oh and everyone, the BEST lighting for your ring to be on display is....Bass Pro Shop!!! Omg, it was sooo sparkly! My fiance was like that things on fire and I could tell it made him really proud! We are headed to BP with my parents to have a little fun and show them the fire!

    Thank you Kmoro! That thought has crossed my mind!!! I think it would be soo beautiful and sparkly! I get a little finger swelling so I'm not sure if I could handle another band but I need to try it with a plain band and then if we love it, maybe for the first anniversary! Love what you're thinking the more bling the better!

    @bling_dream19 - Can we get some stats on your beautiful rings, pls? Finger size as well, if that's not a bother. I love the proportions of this on your hand.

    I've recently bought a new diamond to make a casual diamond soli, and I'm hoping mine looks as nice on me as yours does on you! I suspect your diamond might be somewhat larger tho....

    Yes yes! It is 1.17 ct G Brian Gavin Signature hearts and arrows with 3 side stones on each side of .05ct, so 1.47 ct total on the ering set in platinum. The setting is called the Dream, and we customized to have 3 sides to ensure I didn't feel anything rough. And it is soo comfortable! And I just love the Truth head, I love the hearts and makes me feel really loved when I look at my ring, and I love the curve of the prongs and how they are barely noticeable. I just see the beautifull diamond and sparkly sides.
    The wedding band design I believe was inspired by Dreamer dasher so I am eternally greatful! I wanted a low profile and just wanted to see bling, not metal. I knew BG diamonds were going to sparkle like crazy and I'm just blown away by the quality.
    We modified the band to be 7 diamonds at .05 each, so the band is .35ct.
    Once we get married, I plan to wear them together for a while and decide if I want to have BG solder them together
    Thank you for your compliment MrsB you have gorgeous pieces and exquisite taste. I will have to look up what is a diamond soli. Keep us posted on your next project. Im happy to give more information. My finger is size 7.
