Hello Hive! — It’s been a little over 3 long months without my Engagement Ring… it’s been so hard! I was able to sneak a peak at the progress of my bands with our jeweler the other day, it’s coming along nicely!
I’m wondering how many bee’s had to also go the custom route with their lovely bling? My Fiance found a beautiful Engagement Ring for me, however there was no matching band. On my Engagement Ring ( 3-stone princess cut) there are 3 round brilliant cut diamonds on both sides of the basket supporting the 3 stones. ( Did I lose anybody?) So we had to get creative. I really, really wanted a simple band of just plain diamonds matching the Engagement Ring, but we quickly learned that wasn’t going to be so easy due to the taper of my band.
This was the one of the pictures, I originally showed the jeweler. Minus all the swirl bits on the side, I liked the idea of a guard, I’m not big on wearing the band or e-ring seperate from eachother
The next picture is from my very first visit with the jeweler after he starting constructing the ring. I didn’t like the way it looked — I knew it wasn’t done yet but I had a MAJOR panic attack. Too square, too thick… Not quite as feminine as I wanted it.
I am including the next picture in here, because you can see how the band sneaks under the diamonds on the side. Again, too square, masculine, thick etc… But you will get the idea
He had the right idea going just… needed it to be thinner – OH, and have diamonds… That’s an important part… The shiny bits! So finally just a few days ago I got to go and see the progress… It’s almost done, still has some shaping to do, and attach the two bands, into one ( Via bars – like the first photo – You wont see them once the engagement ring is slipped into the middle)… Ready for it?
Tada! Can’t wait to see the finished product… and of course to marry my best friend and be able to wear this beauty every day! 70 more sleeps until the big day… Ahhhh!!!
So with that… Bee’s…. How many of you were in the same boat as me, having to have something made? Were you nervous? Did you like the way it turned out! If you have pics POST… I’d love to see!!
