    I would want to go and see the actual rings. Pompeii are known for producing rings with very low quality diamonds, and whilst I have seen some that are lovely, I have also seen some that look like monkey spit. 

    Overall, if you saw them and liked the sparkle, i would go for the more symbolic 8 stone ring, even though the weight of the diamonds is lesser.

    I’d never buy a “diamond” ring from Walmart.

    If number 8 is symbolic to you, I would research several 8 diamond options, and try in person, see what size of diamonds looks best on you, then consider your budget, see if you need to compromise on any of the Cs to get closer to your budget. Also consider what metal you want as this will have impact on the budget too. Or even choose some more budget friendly gemstones.

    And try different settings as not each half eternity behaves the same on the finger.

    Oh, I just noticed seeing the ring in person is not an option. Why do you need to have it shipped from the States? 

    Anyhow, I would choose 8, but make sure to find the 8 stone version that looks best on me.

    MRS-K :  to me, 5 stone ring looks bigger. Because diamonds are bigger, and despite less pieces of diamonds, the total carat weight is bigger. Cannot really see from the photo, but the band might be wider too. I have a ring that has 18 tiny diamonds on the top half of it, so tiny that it is basically a pave I guess, and it is so thin that I only wear it as a stacking ring. My point is, with this kind of rings, size of the diamonds is also important consideration. 

    That’s why even if you choose 8 stone ring, you should compare options with different diamond sizes and pick one that will be best for your finger and budget.

    Olivepepper :  LOL at monkey spit

    OP- I think an 8 stone is a great idea since it has significance to you and your husband.

    MRS-K :  check out before buying something from Walmart. They have a lot of selection

    MRS-K :  can you order both and see if any of them looks much better on you in real life? If both look equally good, I guess I would choose 8 for significance. But if 5 would be much better matching your fingers, and your husband would also like it more, go for 5. Anyhow, since it is a 10 year anniversary, I would consider my husband’s input.
