We are going to look for bands on Saturday and I’m specifically looking for a band with etching, not diamonds. My jeweler said they do that custom. I’ll let you know if I’m successful.

a_day_at_the_fair:  Usually metal bands that are cut with a diamond or star-like pattern catch the light and reflect it like a bunch of tiny mirrors on a disco ball, giving the illusion of diamonds or gemstones. I’ve also seen hammered metal jewelry that gives the same effect. The only thing I can think for you to look/ask for is what they call a “faceted” band. I’ll let you know if I find out anything more!

I was  just talking to a  friend  about this same thing  yesterday.  Same situation. A  woman  came into my work  with a ring that looked like it was  covered  in  diamond flakes…  That was the only way I  could think to describe it. I  work in health care  so  this was a  sensitive visit and it wasn’t appropriate to ask her about it,  but it has been driving me crazy ever since.  It was amazing.  Hopefully we can get some answers =)

Edit:  sorry my post looks  so ridiculous.  My phone insists on adding 2  spaces instead of one sometimes. :-/

It is called “diamond cut”. They can be cut in different patterns but it is done in such a way as to maximixe light play.  I have a couple rose gold ones  and a yellow gold one an yes – they really sparkle!
