A woman came into my work with this ring that sparkled like it was encrusted with diamonds. I commented on it, and she pointed out that there actually weren’t ANY diamonds in her band, it was just cut/designed in such a way that it caught the light like crazy.
Does anyone know what something like that might be called? I might be interested in something like that for my wedding band but I’m not sure what to search for.

We are going to look for bands on Saturday and I’m specifically looking for a band with etching, not diamonds. My jeweler said they do that custom. I’ll let you know if I’m successful.

a_day_at_the_fair: Usually metal bands that are cut with a diamond or star-like pattern catch the light and reflect it like a bunch of tiny mirrors on a disco ball, giving the illusion of diamonds or gemstones. I’ve also seen hammered metal jewelry that gives the same effect. The only thing I can think for you to look/ask for is what they call a “faceted” band. I’ll let you know if I find out anything more!

I was just talking to a friend about this same thing yesterday. Same situation. A woman came into my work with a ring that looked like it was covered in diamond flakes… That was the only way I could think to describe it. I work in health care so this was a sensitive visit and it wasn’t appropriate to ask her about it, but it has been driving me crazy ever since. It was amazing. Hopefully we can get some answers =)
Edit: sorry my post looks so ridiculous. My phone insists on adding 2 spaces instead of one sometimes. :-/

It is called “diamond cut”. They can be cut in different patterns but it is done in such a way as to maximixe light play. I have a couple rose gold ones and a yellow gold one an yes – they really sparkle!
