27 again!

So I just can''t decide. The problem is, I can''t find what I really want, so it looks like I''ll have to have it custom made, but I don''t want to do that unless I''m sure it will be perfect! I know I can''t be the 1st PSer to face such a dilemma. So...

I''ve eliminated the 3 stone ring. I wanted a round with pear sides or cushion with baguette sides, but we just can''t afford the size I really want - so that will have to wait!

I want a band. 5 stone, 10 stone, or maybe partial eternity. But I don''t know what size diamonds would look good since I''m wearing it by itself. Does anyone wear just a diamond band? If so, what size are your diamonds and do you like it? Would you go bigger or smaller? My finger size is a 6.5-7 if that helps.

I''ve got a few options. I could have Whiteflash make something. But I''d have to tell them what I want first! Which might be along the lines of kcoursolle''s beautiful 5 stone stunner. Except that I kind of wanted 10 stones for our 10 year anniversary. But maybe that just won''t work out. Ack..I don''t know!!!

Or Mark Morrell has a 9 stone that he said he could modify for 10 stones. They''d be 0.10ct each for a total of 1 carat. About 3mm wide.

Then there''s a B&M that actually is not local to me, but a friend swears by. She could make a 10 stone with the same specs as Mark''s. Obviously it wouldn''t look quite as super fabulous, but it would be less expensive.

Also - does clarity/color matter as much for diamonds of this size? The B&M said that G/H SI-1 would be fine for this type of ring. She also recommends palladium, which I know nothing about.

So you think the 0.10 stones would look OK on their own, or too small? I don''t want to go for the super blingy 3+ carat eternity band, but I also don''t want it to look too thin.

Thanks again!

Hi, I typed in "1ctw eternity" beside the search bar at the top right of this page and there were lots of threads about this. Maybe you''ll see something helpful there?
