Finally, I got my rings. And I LOVE THEM! Each ring is 2.27 cttw with 24 diamonds @ 9 points each. I've been wearing one on each hand...and I might just need one for my toes!

How does it look with my radiant?

BTW, I forgot to mention that they are E/F color and VS clarity.

I'm so excited!!! I've been dancing for days!! (I'm sorry, it doesn't take much to excite me.)

It looks awful with your radiant! ARE YOU KIDDING ME???????????????? JUST GORGEOUS! MY EYES ARE BUGGING OUT OF MY HEAD!!!!!!!!!!!! I like them alot better than the first ones...they just fit so much better from what I can remember. Did you get to see the EC yet? I am assuming that you were at your jewelers today to pick up these beauties. ENJOY! O.K. ...I have to go back and look at them again! ~Ronda

Thanks Ronda! I almost swirved off the road today while driving. They're so glittery!

No, I didn't go to the jeweler today. My DH picked these up last Friday (that's when he saw the EC) but I couldn't get pictures taken until today. I didn't want to post without the pics.

Now I'm thinking that I need to reset my RB into something that will match this eternity ring too. I don't want just a band with diamonds around but something with a little more umf! You know what I mean? In my other posts you can tell that I really like the Tacori style settings but will they look right together? Thinking....I'm always thinking!

Congratulations, Diane! They're beautiful!

That band looks sensational with the radiant. Remind me about the other one with yellows...was it WWYWWY, OR WWWYWWWY...do you know what I mean?? And is it two-tone metal?

regardless....GORGEOUS!!

widget..Thank you! I know it's hard to see the yellow diamonds in the picture but it's WWYWWYWWYWWY. I didn't go with the two-tone. For me, I thought it was still too much yellow gold. It does take away some of the color in the stones with the platinum though. I was worried about that but you really do see the yellow diamonds in person.

Thanks headlight!

Diane.. I understand what you mean about posting...and not having pictures ready. We DTers get so impatient Have you tried on the bands with a Tacori setting? Oh I envy you and all these wonderful projects that you have going on. Your husband is an amazing man. Did you know that he was picking the bands up for you? If not, did he surprise you with them in a special way? I think it is neat that he is looking out for you and getting the specs on the EC. My husband is "so over" the jewelry thing! (mostly because we don't have the $$) Like I said, I will live vicariously through you and other DTers!! ~Ronda

Thank you everybody!

Ronda, no I haven't tried them on with any Tacori rings yet. I haven't even been in a jewelry store! My hubby surprised me by picking them up but then he came home very late that night. I think he did it on purpose! He's a keeper though. He's "over it"...I just don't let him for get "it"!

Amethyste, it does look good! I attached a pic.

MA, right now I wear them together ALL the time! I haven't tried the yellow and white one with the yellow radiant yet. It's in the safe and I haven't had the time to do it yet. I'll do it soon though!

Okay, I'm scurrying to the post office to send the radiant to Webgal! Gosh I hope it gets there!!

LOL Widget! I know! Trust me...I know! I still haven't found time with the fundraiser I'm working on. If I don't see it before I leave for LV than I plan on having a heart-to-heart with the diamond buyer at my jeweler's store. He's going to be in LV too and it'll give me a chance to pick his brain. Unfortunately, my time is running out and I might have to wait.

Hi Diane. Question for ya...

My boyfriend and I have been shopping for engagement rings and I have fallen in love with eternity bands. So I designed my own - a round center stone mounted on a shared prong eternity band with a matching wedding band.

Our jewelry has warned us that the stones on the inside of your hand tend to get loose and have a chance of falling out, which of course made my boyfriend freak out! Also, some people are telling me that it may be uncomfortable to wear. Do you find this to be true?

So now my boyfriend wants me to reconsider that style.

Is yours comfortable??

mikesgirl13...thought I would share some of my thoughts and experiences.

Eternity bands can be uncomfortable depending on the size of the stones in them. It also depends on your fingers too...For some reason I have gaps between my fingers at the base which gives more room for an eternity band. (it is based on the individual)

As for stones getting loose...yes, they can. I wouldn't freak out about it. It is just something you would want to have checked at least once or twice a year. (like maintenance) At the same time have it cleaned!

You also need to consider your lifestyle...will you wear them all the time, will you do all the cleaning in your home, all the cooking, washing, plan on having kids? Let me tell you all that takes a beating on your ring. I know that firsthand.

Have you considered the same style, but only going halfway around with the stones? It will save you money...possibly you could increase the stone size then or upgrade the quality of the stones, and then you will lessen the beatiing the ring will take. Give it some thought. You really can't tell that much that the stones don't travel the entire ring....you will know, but most people looking at it won't.

One final thought...my mom has this style ring...she never takes it off...she does everything...BUT, her stones do get loose and spin around while still in the prongs. I would say it takes five years before they show being loose. (she does not have her ring maintained regularly by the way)
