Guess where these bands came from...

I can't tell you how much I love the full eternity. Victor is such a saint for being willing convert my Jocelyn setting to this lovely. Single cut melee, bright cut setting, size 4.5. It is just perfect. The single cuts are so bright, but not big enough to take away from my ering. I am amazed at the workmanship. I love how tightly the stones are set. If there are any prongs anywhere, I can't see them. The sides and metal are perfectly smooth and glides on my finger like a glove. And remember, this was originally the Jocelyn where the prongs protruded directly from the side walls. He was an angel to fit this project into the Christmas rush. I would have been thrilled to receive this any time in 2016. But he was able to get it done in time for me to wrap it back up ;( and put it under the tree.

The other is a matching plain band with millgrain at the edges. So smooth and fine. They are just perfect, and the height and width match perfectly as well. Completely satisfies my OCD-ness. I have to say Bright Ice's new antique emerald with the bands inspired me to go with the plain band with the millgrain edges. I loved how her two worked together. I am amazed at how pleasing to the eye this set is. I even love it with my ering. LOVE. Makes me have to rethink my whole resetting ideas all over again...

Working with Victor was the easiest, most simple thing, and as always, so professional and courteous. When I looked at Bright Ice's plain band I couldn't really make out the side engraving, or what it was. I just liked it. I showed Victor the picture. He got the idea and told me what he thought would look good. Well, if Victor thinks it looks good, it's good enough for me. I'm so excited because now I have the option of either or both. I'm honestly loving both right now. We'll see in a week, when I actually have it on my hand. ;-)

So here go the pics. You all know I go crazy with them because I want to see it from all angles. Do you mind letting me know what you like best, with both, or with just the eternity, or just the millgrain band?

Gorgeous, LLJ! :cheeky: I happen to like all 3 together (imagine that!) for you! :appl: Looks like a complete set to me! :love:

So are you still thinking about a reset for your OEC now? And what happened to the rest of your Jocelyn setting--could it still be salvaged w/ a plain shank?

m-2-b, are you sitting down? Here it is. Good-bye sweet Jocelyn... It was great while it lasted. :razz:



It's interesting that the ering and the two bands do work together although not a perfect match. Similar in width and height, though not exact. I am fighting the OCD in me. I almost feel like I need a shank that matches the plain band, with millgrain only at the edges, but I'm honestly not sure. I think I will just wear the set for now, and see how I feel. Btw, I don't think my design will work with these two bands. I don't know how to make a basket like that work. I feel like I need to go simple on the basket. Back to the Trueste? The squared of shanks of both these bands makes me feel I should stick with that in my e-ring too.

I am open to all suggestions and ideas at this point.

Oh what a shame on what's left of your Jocelyn! :o

You should ask Victor what he thinks if you are looking for an exact match to these bands. I do think simpler will work better with them.

Why didn't I think of that? Duh. That is a GREAT idea. I think I might just do that. :D He made the rings. Who else could advise me better?

Just throwing this out there since I just LOVE VC halos--how about this one with smaller melee customized to your OEC: :naughty:

https://www.victorcanera.com/rings/engagement/old-european-cut-diamond-in-bezel-halo
I have looked at this a lot of times too. :D It would protect the stone. And I do love the bezel. I don't know.... :doh: :lol: And the finger coverage. :shock:
I can imagine your beautiful, large OEC in a delicate bright cut pave cathedral halo--that would be the end of DSS for you, lol! :bigsmile:

Re: Victor Canera Full Eternity Bright Cut and Millgrain ban

I actually like all three of them together too! They just work together and I'm not always a huge fan of stacking.

As for an ering reset, I do agree with m2b that a shank with the same shape would definitely work best. To halo or not? That has to be personal preference I think but either would be beautiful!

Re: Victor Canera Full Eternity Bright Cut and Millgrain ban

LLJsmom, it is perfection. I love both bands with your OEC ER and Victor did a terrific (as usual) job. Really amazing and so happy he made it so easy for you. And well you know I am a huge fan of your solitaire OEC but I also know whatever you decide (halo or not) to do with your ER reset will be beautiful. Your OEC cannot look anything but beautiful no matter the home.

LOVE LOVE LOVE all 3 together. :love: :love: :love:

Aaaah, so it was your set on Victor's FB. I love it :appl: What a great idea to reuse the stones from your Jocelyn like this.
And I love the look of the two bands with your e-ring as well as the two bands tofether and the eternity with your e-ring. I think it's a great idea to ask Victor for ideas for your possible reset. Enjoy wearing your rings :wavey:

I'm all for recycling/repurposing jewery :appl: That was brilliant and Victor did an amazing job if course! I'm partial to the eternity with your e-ring, but they all look beautiful together, enjoy!

I think I hyperventilated a little when I saw the cut off bits, beautiful stunning bands, Victor is truly a master, on the flip side of that it's such a shame you couldn't have set a coloured stone or something else in the original ring, because I loved it as well.....

Re: Victor Canera Full Eternity Bright Cut and Millgrain ban

I love those bands and I would do exactly the same thing other than I'd have him engrave my plain band. That's been on my wishlist forever, except for the fact that I kept thinking I needed to decide on the e-ring reset first (which may or may not ever happen!).

I love the style of the ring that your diamond is set in now! I'd just have Victor make that to match the height of your bands and also make any tweaks the ring needs. I love the Trueste, too. While I love halos on OECs, I think it would be a little too much for me, personally. But you can't go wrong with any choice!

Love your new bands LLJsmom!!! :love: Victor did such a beautiful job! :appl: I honestly love all the different combinations, but I think I'm a bit partial to the diamond band alone, I guess I just like that look! But all the combinations look great, and it's fun to mix and match for different looks.

Do you know the width of the plain band? I need a thin band so I can wear other bands with it, but they have to be thin because my fingers are shorter below the knuckle, unfortunately!

Re: Victor Canera Full Eternity Bright Cut and Millgrain ban

Beautiful! I had to go back to your older threads to take a closer look at the Jocelyn. Though it was a beautiful setting, the change you made was so well done and as you said, ensures that the focus is on your beautiful stone. All the variations are of the wedding set are all so fun. I don't think I can pick a favorite!

All 3 together! They look fantastic. And I usually prefer just a single band. I know you are set on wanting a reset, but those three look like they were made for each other :)

Your new bands are beautiful and it's awesome that Victor was able to repurpose your old ring! I'm with others, I like all 3 rings together but I don't think you could go wrong with any of the combinations! :love:
