A few weeks ago Hubby and I went into a store to see if they had anything similar to what I was looking for. I had decided to just reset my original stone in a halo setting. Went back and forth on whether or not I wanted to have something custom designed and put sapphire''s in it. I''m super super wishy washy. Very indecisive!

So we go in and I try something on and I fall in love. Price is right. I tell them I''m going to sleep on it and let them know tomorrow. (This was in another town and we were there for my daughter''s volleyball tournament.) So while the salesperson is off writing down the item number Hubby looks at me and says, "Why are you going to sleep on it? You like it, right? If you don''t get this one you''ll just keep looking and looking and never end up with anything." He''s right. I have this huge fear of commitment because WHAT IF I find something I like better on down the road?! lol

So I got it. A reset and a band. They called last Friday to say it was in (they had to order it in my size) and so I drove over and dropped off my stone. I also got to pick up the band. Yeah! It''s very simple and dainty and I can not WAIT to get the rest of it on my hand this Friday! Then all I need is to decide on which sapphire/diamond stacker to pair it with. I''m thinking I''ll do a BevK one from Pearlman''s. I''m wanting some space between the bands, I like the gap...so I want one with different shapes that will allow for that.

Here''s my band, on my son''s rook. ;-) (Ugh, this place hates me! I can never attach pics! I''m going to try again.)

Yay UpgradeMe!!! I know exactly what you mean about holding out because you might find THE ONE down the road. I was so bad, my jeweler asked my husband if I said "yes" right away when he proposed, because he has never seen me be firm and decisive when it comes to jewelry. The band is beautiful, and I can''t wait to see the ring - does it have a halo, like you were thinking of getting? We''ll all be waiting for your pics.

your husband is obviously a great guy. dont good hubby''s make the most wonderful best friends!! aww we gotta love em..

i cant wait to see the set.. i just love the band, love love LOVE it!!!


i''d love to know how thick it is? i know wf always says nothing under 2mm... but the matching band for my ritani is only 1.5 or 1.8mm thick?
have you measured yet? also are the diamonds all the way around? if so, is there a space for sizing?
sorry lots of questions, i know... but its gorgeous..
cant wait to see more pics, of both rings together, seperate, profile, flower, fire and well you know the drill


so exciting!!

Thanks everyone! I''m headed out to pick up my new ring today!!!!! I can''t wait. I''ll post pictures but it''ll have to be after the weekend unfortunately because I''ll be out of town all weekend.

cellentani: Yes, the new ring is a halo. The only thing I didn''t get that I thought I would is bezel set. She talked me out of it. LOL

trishy: I''m not sure how wide it is, but it''s small. Really small. The diamonds only go 1/2 way around ;-)

I''ll post more pics of the band as well when I get back!
