DH and I have been looking high and low for an eternity band to go with my solitaire. I wanted one sizeable enough to wear on its own without disappearing, but that would also coordinate well with my ER. I didn’t want a basket setting because I wanted the profiles of the stones visible, and because I wanted it to look like nothing but stones, I wanted a permanently white metal (my skin strips the plating off white gold far too quickly), so that meant I needed a platinum band. Local jewelers had nothing, and even online I had trouble finding everything I was looking for. Over the weekend I was visiting my hometown where my mum still lives, and DH and I checked out a jeweler there.
Presenting my 2 CTW, 21 stone, U-prong set eternity band set in platinum (stones are certified F-G and SI1). Although my ER is a size 7-1/2, the eternity band is an 8 so as to avoid the resizing issue for as long as possible (I have osteo arthritis and my ring size has increased from a 6-1/4 to a 7-1/2 during the time we have been married).
