the hunt for a curved wedding band!!!!
Quote this post and reply to it Post#1 @ 04-16-10 , 03:30 PM


Hi everyone, I originally posted about this in the jewellery design section but thought perhaps it wouldn't get seen so have posted here as well.

I am having a real nightmare trying to find an antique style curved wedding band to sit with my art deco engagement ring. The basket which holds the diamond is low to the finger, round and juts out at the front so a straight band will not sit right. Can anyone point me in the right direction. It doesnt have to sit exactly flush, a small gap is fine but a straight band would have way too much gap. Plus I would like something that looks like it was meant to go with my ring.

We have had no luck in the UK finding a nice curved band as they are all too modern and dont look right. I've been in touch with a few New York jewelers but most arent happy to ship to the UK and because my ring size is very small (2 & 3/4) they would class it as a 'special order' which means they wont let me return the ring if the curve does not sit with my engagement ring. We dont want to spend out a lot of money on something I can't wear.

Would appreciate any help on this...

Cheers

We make some in a few different carat weights. this one comes in .25 ct. t.w. , 33 ct. t.w and .48 ct. t.w.

We can also make it in either platinum, white gold or palladium.

Hi Jan, thanks for your reply. I love the curve on that band and the millegrain. Don't suppose you have any similar that have patterns on the sides instead of plain? a few curved ones I've looked at on the net have this really nice pattern that runs down the sides and across the back of the band. I do like this one though and would like to know about the spec and what width it is etc (I would be looking for one in platinum).

It is measuring 3 mm in width but doesn't have an additional pattern on the band. It has .26 ct. of diamonds in it and is running in platinum $1890.
Since it doesn't have the pattern it will probably sit flatter against your ring. A pattern will more than likely raise it up for the pattern and could pose a problem to fit flush.

Hello, thanks for sharing your story..
I'd come to think that engagement ring should also be consider in finding the perfect wedding bond.
Don't you worry donna, if it so happen that I came across with the ring that would compliment your e-ring, I'll let you know.
I do understand what you are looking for. Harmony.

Cheers! Everything will fall into right place.

You might want to look at Henri Daussi, they have a beautiful curved pave band that might work for you

Your welcome. You might want to also keep palladium in mind. It stays white like platinum but cost a lot less.
