I recently aquired an antique wedding band with beautiful tiny OEC’s that I want to use as my own band. However, it’s an eternity band and it’s a 9.75, but I wear a 5.75. Obviously this will never fit, and I’d like to have it remade into a similar smaller ring. Can anyone recommend a good jeweler to do this? Also.. will this be a super expensive project?
I’ll post pictures after it’s back in my posession, I had to have it delivered to my moms as no one was home here to pick it up 🙁
David Klass. His work is amazing and his pricing is incredibly reasonable. Just be prepared to have patience while working with him. He’s popular, and with good reason, but that also means it can take longer for things to happen.
onceuponabee : Thanks! I suspected he would be the common go-to. Hopefully I can get his attention. He actually follows me on instagram, lol.
While I have your attention, I’m considering having the OMC’s set in a shallow u-cut pave setting like Victor Caneras, which I’ll link a video to below. I originally wanted single cuts, but now I’m thinking this could look beautiful in this setting as well. Any thoughts?
oldsoul163 : I love the band that is your inspiration. I used to love the single cuts in bands like this but since I’ve been looking for potential bands for my own e-ring, I have been loving the OMC cuts instead! You should definitely go for that. They exude this incredible floral/vintage/feminine/dainty sparkle! I’m probably going to be getting my band done with David too (thinking of a 7-stone) and I’m going to ask him to source OMC’s for me!!! So that gets my vote. 😀
onceuponabee : yay! I’m glad someone else thinks it’s a good idea. I think it’ll be beautiful, and honestly, knowing VC’s prices this will probably still cost me less whoops

Horseradish : I wish I had local options, but I know this is something I will likely have to ship. We have almost exclusively chain jewelers where I live, and I truthfully don’t trust them to work on an antique.
