So I’m excited to say that even though I had to return the french cut band I was so excited about(from Etsy), I was able find and purchase another one that I saw online on Wilson Estates. Platinum, Size 6, approximately 1.25 ctw, vintage, french cut diamonds, about 2.7 mm wide and 1.9 mm in height. Has milgrain edges and filigree details on the outside. LOVE!!!
Here she is-

A 3/4 ct F SI2 OEC from IvyandRose. It's EGL certified but the write up assured that it really WAS white, so I bought it on faith. It just arrived, and it really IS white! It's a lovely color match with my .64 AVR E VS stone, and is utterly eye clean. I'm having it re-cut / tidied up so it's a better match with my .64, at which point they'll go either side of my purple/grey cushion spinel from Gary at Finewater Gems. This is to replace my previous grey spinel and diamond ring, which I adored so much - I wanted to make it again...but bigger! :mrgreen:

I currently have 10 projects on the cooker with DKJ - most of them small-ish, but all precious. The next few months for me should be awesome!

@kayla17 yeah!! And this one already had the engraving and milgrain. Just perfect!
Thank you! I’m excited about the milgrain bc the pictures and video don't show it at all. I just love that the ring is a little worn and not perfect. The diamonds are also better than expected BC I really was expecting a few flea bites, etc but they are surprisingly In great shape. I’ve also found that I prefer the older cut french cut diamonds that have tiny culets. I don’t like the modern cut ones as much (of course I will take any and all if given!)

Gorgeous!!! What a beautiful set!!
Thank you so much! It took a while but I finally have it!

Oh it's beautiful and works perfectly with your ring!
Thanks! I thought the diamonds on the engagement ring might clash a bit but I just love that they are a bit different. Also I can always wear the FC band in a stacker set. Before I was thinking of getting a FC band with larger diamonds but I really don’t want a stand alone ring. I wanted it to match width- wise with my engagement ring setting. So it’s perfect.

@kayla17 I’m thrilled for you, it’s beautiful! Your set is a match made in heaven!
Thank you so much! I finally feel that I have what I want. In the past I wanted to change this or that, bigger diamond, different setting, different bands. Then I would get what I thought I wanted and didn’t wear it.
This is the first time ever that I have worn my engagement ring every day since getting it.
Before I would go without wearing it for weeks at a time. And I’m not embarrassed to wear it either. Before I was embarrassed to wear it bc I thought it was too big. Now I don’t care!

My newest purchase... a 14ct rose and white gold RHR by DanielM. I went around and around trying to decide what I wanted with this one. The ever gorgeous @mrs-b helped me find the sweetest half carat cushion on Blue Nile for this ring (thank you so much again for your help, dear lady!!), but me being me, I had a last minute change of heart, and swapped it for a .49 E SI1 emerald cut that the fabulous @OoohShiny found for me. My birthday is a month away yet, so I have to wait a bit, so for now it is in DanielM's hot little hands. I can't wait to get it!

Gorgeous stone mrs_b!! I'm glad it came as advertised. I just ordered a band from Ivy & Rose. I'm hoping it looks as good as the pictures.
