Do you wear a diamond band? Can I see a photo of it and can you list its stats – colour, cut, carat, clarity, setting type and band width – as well as where you bought it and how much it cost?
I’m looking at buying a diamond band but I cannot decide on the carat weight; eternity or half eternity (which is best?); band width; or setting type (scallop, shared prong, U prong…).

@Mischka: My band is 0.34 TCW, 9 x round brilliant and 8 x marquis bezel set in platinum with a milgrain edge. It has a scalopped side profile.
ETA: I believe the safest settings for a diamond band are channel and bezel. So if that’s a concern for you then one of those settings would be best

My wedding band is a 0.05 TWC 18k White gold Pave U shaped band colour H.
(I dont wear all these 3 together) The straight band at the bottom is the Stainless Steel and CZ band I wear to work as I get worried about damaging my Engagement and Wedding rings. (they get really scratched up).

I wear a seven diamond, one carat TCW band. It would be useless to quote you a price, though. The band is custom to fit the diamonds out of rings that my parents left me when they passed.

@Mischka: I have 2 eternity bands. They were about 2100 for the set (I believe, we bought them a while ago). No idea on the stats, lol. But they are a matching set. Like the contour down so as to frame the ring.

I wear a half eternity set in 14K white gold. It’s about .5 TCW, and I think the diamonds are around G or H in color. I forgot the final price on it, but it was under $1K.

Mines completely different but I thought I’d throw it in the mix lol. It is a custom made wedding band sleeve (two bands attached at the base so that the e-ring slips in between the two). It cost 3700 for all of the hand engraving in 14k white gold and 0.30 ct of G-H diamonds

Mine is super thin… like 1.5 mm. I got it at Birks… it’s platinum… half eternity.. I think F-G colored diamonds, and I have no idea on CTW, it’s just teeny tiny. Very sparkly. I think it cost around $1,300 if I remember correctly.
