Is it a full eternity band? Mine is approx 1.20-1.25 tcw (11 diamonds) and it is a half-eternity (each diamond is 3mm) size 6.25. I would imagine that the specs would be similar to what your looking for if mine were a full eternity band. 

It is the last band in the pic. The stones go well past the sides of my finger so it looks like it’s a full one.

ErinW522:  This is literally the thread I was about to post!  I’m trying to find the right size eternity band and want one where the diamonds actually look like individual round diamonds … that sounds weird, but the size where it actually creates a sort-of bubble effect… still sounds weird, but I think you may know what I mean.

vintagelover32:  That is GORGEOUS – what a perfect size!  Do you mind sharing where you purchased yours from?

kidseahawk:  You are looking for an eternity band with shared prongs…. that will give it the bubble effect as seen in the pic above. For a larger bubble look you might want a U shaped shared prong in a larger carat size like .20 – .25 each which is really pricey. I believe 3mm is .15 each????

kidseahawk:  As fall2014 said, it is a shared prong. I prefer it to pave or channel set eternity rings. However, there is a downside…because the sides of the diamonds are exposed it scratches the side of any ring I wear next to it (hence the middle stacker ring I have). 

I had mine custom made through a local jeweler. And a 3mm is around a .11 carat. It is one of the larger eternity rings I’ve seen around my area (DC metro). It’s by no means huge, but significant enough to notice that bubble look. I wanted something that could stand on its own.

Here are some more pics. Sorry not the best quality pics…it’s about to storm so the lighting is a bit dark!

vintagelover32:  Thank you very much!  Yes, that’s the exact kind of “bubble” look I’m after – your ring is SO pretty!  

ErinW522:  Thank you for the suggestion!  Although the bubble look I was describing was more the individual diamonds like in vintagelover32’s, the ring you posted is actually the other style we’re debating having made to stack with my e-ring and band 🙂  As to your own ring – I think that shared-prong eternity style would be absolutely lovely!  I think you could even go larger if you wanted – your ring is substantial on its own (AND SO PRETTY) and I think it would balance a large diamond band nicely.

This is also shared prong, but it’s a single shared prong giving the “bubble” look. This type defines each stone the best IMO. I considered this for my wedding band but ultimately changed my setting and I went with pave for both to avoid the diamond girdles from rubbing on one another, This can cause damage over time to your rings. You should consider soldering or a spacer ring with the common prong bands, hope this is helpful!

My pave eternity has 3 point stones in it so not visually much help to you but remember that a 1.75ct eternity band will have different point stones depending on a persons finger size, so when looking for a good reference for yourself, look for someone with same size, or close, as you. In regards to eternity bands in general, I would absolutely not go with a half eternity, simply because my rings spin so much it would drive me crazy! Good luck, I hope you find the perfect ring!

ErinW522:  You’re welcome! Glad I could help! You’re ring is gorgeous!! 

rascchot:  My half eternity doesn’t spin at all. I have a good size band (3mm) width and I made sure it was the correct ring size when they made it. My fear with getting a full eternity was banging the diamonds and possibly losing one! I guess everyone has their thing LOL

Yes it really depends on how a persons finger is shaped too, larger knuckles dont help 🙂  Mine spin quite a bit. My band is also very low profile, its pave, so I dont bang it around, but I also dont wear it to work and such. If the OP thinks spinning would bother her, I would say go with the full eternity.

Your ring is beautiful!! Do you have a profile pic of it to share? That is another factor to consider too while looking for a band, if you want the band to be at the same height as your ering, or sit kind of underneath it. I was also looking at a shared U-Prong eternity, the profile is pretty low on those. Here is a pic of one.
