My question is: does anyone currently have the Adiamor split shank (sans halo) e-ring with the band THEY suggest pairing it with? I called the Adiamor customer service number (nothing but great things to say about those folks) and they suggested R2921. I’m one of the most finicky gals you could ever hope to meet & it’s driving me insane that I can’t find a picture of the e-ring with the matching band. Bless my loves heart, he tolerated my ring shopping only to have me fall in love with one on a website.
The e-ring is (R2930):
The matching band is (R2921):
It looks beautiful side by side but we all know pictures can be deceiving. Any help is appreciated.

What did you end up choosing?
Also, can you provide any thoughts on how to go about choosing clarity of a diamond online? I’m a bit fussy but tempted to buy online to save some $$. I’d like a 1.30 carat + around the H colour mark. Not sure what else to consider without looking at the diamond.
I hope all went well with your search!

@quick_little_fox: Hello! My fella actually went with something from Jared instead of buying online. He picked something very similar and I am head over heels for it.
Regarding the diamond, I’m actually very well versed in this and the jeweler laughed and said “why don’t you just sell ME the stone!”. It really depends on what is important to you. I wanted a flawless stone and was willing to compromise on size a bit (mine is 1.30ct), my cousin wanted a big stone and didn’t care much about internal flaws (hers is 2.01ct). In the end, because my stone is better quality, it actually cost a bit more than hers – not that that’s the most important thing but size isn’t always the big factor in price.
My stone in “eye clean” which means when looking at it without a microscope or loop you won’t see any imperfections. In my opinion (and this is just my opinion), because it’s eye clean it sparkles better. I believe eye clean starts at SI1 (but I would Google to verify that). If you are concerned about getting a good diamond education, go to your local big name (aka chain) store. They should have someone there (a gemologist) who will show you what a D stone verses I stone looks like and what a stone with imperfections verses an eye clean stone looks like and so on. Even if you don’t end up buying from them, it’s great to know what you’re getting yourself into. If you are using a website to buy your stone or setting (or both), make sure they get stones from GIA, IGI, EGL or a like source. These are “institutes” who rate diamonds and hold stones to a higher standard than unrated stones.
