    Oh it’s gorgeous!!!

    I don’t see many bigger baguette bands these days. Wonder if the band is vintage. Or just ultra modern lol

    Gorgeous @Matthews1127! I don’t remember this band! Do you have a thread on it?

    Sorry for the threadjack, but @Matthews1127 your band is also really stunning! I love how the milgrain adds an additional level of definition & detail; beautiful! :love:

    congrats on this ring! i LOVE it... i love step cuts :)
    and this is different to other step cut bands...
    its wide enough to be a stand alone ring... is that what you intend it for?
    or you wanting to now find a matching stacker/ solitaire?

    I’m intending it to be a standalone RHR and I usually have a colored stone ring on that hand as well but on a different finger and not as a stack. At least that’s my thought. I’ll see when it gets here!

    @MakingTheGrade...

    I typically shy away from thicker bands, but this one is so BADA$$ -- and you can pull it off nicely. ;-) Kinda makes me want a thicker band... hmmmm... LOL

    Hehe. I suspect that in person the ring won’t look super thick or wide. 5mm isn’t that wide. I think many men’s standard wedding bands are 6mm

    I guess by "thicker" I mean 3mm+... The widest one I have is 2.5mm. LOL

    It’s 5.5mm wide.
    The baguettes are twin stacked, and alternate with rounds. It’s channel set, with vintage design. It matches my ER, which is why DH selected it for my bday gift, last year. :mrgreen2:

    That's gorgeous, unique and beautifully crafted. My only concern would be if it would be comfortable or irritating with the different heights. Or would that feel kind of exciting to wear...sometimes I like smooth rings, and other times I enjoy feeling the "character" of something with a strong presence on my hand, and find my self turning it and toying with it for the joy of its tactile qualities.

    Ugh so my mailman actually just left the package in the lobby without getting my signature. Oops. But luckily I got it safe and sound!
