Oh, this is a bit embarrasing! I need your help to decide whether to keep 2 x black diamond bands. (The embarrasing bit is that I bought them from a shopping channel in the UK and paid £70 each (about $110)).
I need to say that each band only has about .30ct of black diamonds and they''re so lightweight that one gust of wind and I''d never see them again!


My dilema is that I''ve never really worn layered rings before. I just love everybody''s I''ve seen recently on PS but now I''ve seen them on my sausage fingers, I''m not sure whether the look is "me"!

So ........... here are some combinations - should the bands stay or go please?

On their own ..........

I really love the look you have with the pear ring and the red diamond ring!! I say keep! Even if you only ever wear them with those two rings.

I love them with the huge pear you bought them to go with! I''m not sure what the price for these generally is, but if you look around online you may have gotten a good deal! Let us know what you decide!

I love them with the combinations, but not so much on their own.

KEEP! I really love the look with the pear diamond, red diamond and the first diamond band. I think my favorite look is with the first diamond band. A mix of deco and modern!!!

Aren''t we all a funny bunch. Personally, I think they look great LD, especially in the combinations you showed us. But at the same time, if you don''t feel comfortable wearing them then you probably won''t wear them. Question is, what else is out there for £140?

Usually I feel like if you are doubting it''s best to send them back. However, the price is reasonable and they are fun little bands, so if you think you will wear them then why not keep them?

Thank you everybody for your comments (especially Coati for your honesty).

I''m still undecided. I guess that £140 isn''t a lot to pay for these and I''d struggle to get something similar elsewhere for the same price BUT will I wear them? Mmmmm, I don''t know!

Gailey - yes they''re my nails and thanks for the compliment! When I paint them I sometimes have people asking me if they''re real and have occasionally tried to pull them off!

I''d send ''em back, but that''s just me.
They are not really me and you seem pretty unsure

That`s a difficult one. I mean I like the look on you, esp with the pear, but if you are unsure and don''t think you`ll be wearing them enough, you should probably send them back.

I like them with the pear, but not so much with the others. Odd of me, I know. I think they look stunning with that pear though!!!

Ditto, mainly because the rest of your rings are considerably more substantial than the black diamond eternities. I'd sum up the cost of the three rings together, and ask myself whether I'd want to pay that amount for the single (3-piece) ring.

ETA -- but, that pear and eternity rings combo is pretty fabulous!
