i am looking to see pictures of 5 and 7 stone wedding bands! please tell me why you prefer one over the other, if you do. i am looking at wedding bands and deciding between a few options.
5 stone, 20 pointers = 1 ctw
7 stone, 20 pointers = 1.4 ctw
5 stone, 25 pointers = 1.25 ctw
my engagement ring is a round 1.7 ct solitare. my ring size is 3.75. it is hard to get a good visual since these bands would be custom and i don’t have many options to try in person prior to purchasing. with my ring size being on the smaller side, i feel like most of these options would look like a 1/2 eternity band. i am just concerned about going too large on the diamonds or adding too many diamonds to where my they would rub against my fingers making them hard to close.

msc08 : I think it depends on what look you are going for. I have an eternity band that is 8 pointer’s and I also have a 5 stone that has 20 pointer’s. I wear a size 8 and the 5 stone fits comfortably on my finger without getting in the way of the adjacent fingers. I could probably fit one more stone but it is still quite a blingy look. For your finger size, I think anything over 1 carat in a 5 stone will be rubbing on your adjacent fingers. You could probably even go down to .75 carats but it depends on how ‘blingy’ the look is that you want. My 5 stone ring does not look like a half eternity band on the finger.

I have a 5 stone ring that totals 1 ctw so I think it’s what you’re looking for. I chose the 5 stone on your poll because im a little biased I own one too!
Ring size is 4.25
Please excuse my short stubby fingers!

I have a 1.85ct round brilliant solitaire (7.87 mm) on a size 5.5 finger. I originally wanted a 5 stone 1ctw (.20 each) band to pair with it, but found it too overwhelming for my e-ring and didn’t like how high it sat or the large gap. I ultimately went with a custom 7 stone .84 ctw (.12 each) with no airline to keep it as low as possible. Pics are below. As far as rubbing aganst your finger, obviously the bigger the diamonds, the more likely the band will rub on your fingers, but you can request that the diamonds in the band be set as low as possible with no airline and that the prongs be very smooth. Another thing you will want to avoid is the band rubbing the prongs of your e-ring, especially if your e-ring setting is low like mine. Even my 7 stone with .12 diamonds can rub the prongs of my e-ring, so I usually wear a thin spacer in between (I have several I switch between). With your small finger size, I would think a 7 stone with .10 ct diamonds would give you great finger coverage and be low enough. You could go to local jewelery stores (Tiffany usually has lots of options) and ask to try on 1.5-1.7 ct solitaires with their stock bands to get and some ideas. Since you are going custom, the jeweler doing the work should be able to provide you with CADs and opinions. Hope This Helps and GL!

msc08 : I have a 7 stone ring but I honestly have not idea the carat weight of it (never thought about it before) at first I thought it was too many stones since the end two are half covered by my other fingers but now that I’ve had it for over 6 months I’m so happy that it has the look of an infinity without the extra cost.
