First and foremost, hello to everyone. I have lurked on this forum on and off for quite a while and love the information, not to mention the pictures that are found here. So hello to everyone.

Now, here is my problem. My husband and I will be married 10 years April 8, 2004. We are planning on going away to an island to renew our vows. He wants to get me a "special" band for that day and I saw one in an ad in Town & Country magazine, it was 5 cts. of paved diamonds set in platinum. That is the band that I want. I was not a flat band, it was "a little" rounded. However, I did cut the picture out and on the picture it gave the name, number and address of the jeweler. I can't find that picture anywhere! I have been surfing the net to see if I can find a ring close to it, but everything is so small. Does anyone know where I might find some outstanding large paved bands. I really want that exact band and really want those 5 cts

Any help that any of you can give me would be greatly appreciated. I know that I have 2 years to go, but I also know that sometimes finding or having the "right" piece is a time-consuming process.

I want to thank you for your thoughts or pics in advance.
Lisa

I have to say that all three band are georgeous! I don't like the X shape, the second band is concave? where it rounds in, the band that I am looking for rounds out just a little, not domed, just rounds out a teeny, tiny bit. Also the band that I want has no metal edging on it, just diamonds upon diamonds

The picture of the paved band with the center bezel is starting to come a little close, however, I would not want any center stone. I just want a band that is totally diamond encrusted

i will try

the ring your'e describing is a cartier design
you might try their website (sorry have no idea of the address)

it's sort of like the one you like, but not concanve, rounded...and no white gold edging

it's really massive people always grab my mum's hand and tell her they like her "knuckle duster"

sopapia, I believe that that is a Chopard ring no? It is not what I am looking for, but beautiful nonetheless. If you see the ring at it's widest, I am looking for that width or a little wider and it is rounded, however I think a little too rounded. However, it would look completely different to me if it the band was a uniform size and the whole ring was paved.

Thanks for posting the picture
Lisa

Dear Sapphire Angel,
Lovely name. You can also go to the public library and find the mag in the back issue section, or just email town and country magazine and they can probably send you the add. Also, just call Cartier and see if they can send you a pic. I know they have a store in Chicago on Michigan Avenue if you live close to there. Hope this doesn't give you more of stuff you don't want to worrry about, and good luck. Susanp

Sapphireangel, I think the picture of the posted ring is by Escada. I too love pave settings. I hope you find the one you have your heart set on.

Another thought - was it JB Star? or perhaps Primak . I thumbed through a few back issues of T&C just to check who was advertising. I checked a few web sites but found nothing. I I locate something I'll post it.

Susanp, I never thought of going to the library and looking through old issues. When I looked at a current issue, I have narrowed it down to three jewelers and they are: Boone & Sons, Solovey Jewelers or Janina & Co. The ring was in their "Special Advertising Section" so it had to be one of them. I am going to go to the library tomorrow and see if they back issues. However, I live in such a small town, that I will not hold my breath. Thank you for recommending it though

Bethann, you are right, the ring that was posted by sopapia is definitely by Escada. And, I truly hope that I can find this ring. When I saw it, I knew that it would be on my finger one day Also, THANK YOU so very much for looking through your older Town & Country magazines for me. That was very kind of you!

Jaxie, I am having a little trouble with Cartier's site so I will try it again a little later.

Thank you all. Everyone is sooooooo very helpful on this board. I only hope one day I can return the sentiment

Lisa

mgmsrk, YES, that is the style of ring! Where did you get that picture?

Carmen TN, it's nice to be here. I also adore sapphires - my engagement ring is one. It took my husband and our friend who is a jeweler one year to find the perfect stone. The product is this (please excuse the photo as it is not a very good one):

That is absolutely beautiful, and well worth the wait I'm sure. Your husband and jeweler did an excellent job, and of course you have wonderful taste in your choice of stone!

Thank you Carmen TN, I really love my ring. Is your ring finished or still in the process? What type of ring are you having made? Don't you just love custom-made jewelry?

Sapphireangel,
Your ring is beautiful. Please tell us more about it.
I found that ring on ebay. It was listed at 3.5ct. the quality may not be very good but I thought it may be the right style. This is the link
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dl...&item=863142901

It has more photos.
I went on ebay to look because I used to drool over pave eternity bands one seller sold. They were beautiful but I could not find any today.
