@LazyDaisy: Beautiful!! I think your ring is the closest to mine that I’ve ever seen in the Hive! Thanks for posting! By the way, I just went back and found you on the “Are You My Ring Twin” thread. 🙂
As for your wedding band, you have a lot of choices. You could do something like I did, with a half eternity band of all round diamonds, or you could choose a band featuring baguettes and rounds, like @mnp:
‘s and @Shelby81:
‘s gorgeous wedding bands. Or you could select something entirely different to contrast! 🙂 I can’t wait to see what you choose! You’ll have to come back and post pics when you have it!

@Brielle: Girl, you have good taste! 😉 I specifically picked out a round brilliant with tapered baguettes setting for my Fiance to get me. I love how timeless and classic it looks. I love your ring! Beautiful..
I’m also having trouble finding a band to go with mine as it’s also not blanched..! Maybe we could convince our men that we need 2 bands.. one to balance out the unevenness, and the other to stack on top!

I’m not sure if you can see it in the pic, but the sides of my ring and my bands have baguettes. I never knew what the cut was until recently:

There are 4 little baguette diamonds around the center stone.
I love how unique the baguette stones make our rings look! I love everything I’ve seen in this thread!

@Keisha In Love: Hey! You and I are e-ring twins!! At least the the style is the same, yours looks bigger than mine. Mine has the baguettes going up the sides of the ring in a channel set too. DH and I went to four stores looking for this exact style!

@romantical: Thanks!! I’m glad you found this thread. I LOVE your ring!! It’s gorgeous!!
Your ring is so beautiful!! That setting is gorgeous!!
Wow! I’ve never seen a baguette halo before. That’s so unique! Stunning ring!
@Keisha In Love:
That’s a lot of beautiful bling you have there! I love the step cuts in your stones!
Lots of lovely baguettes!

Here’s my precious. The baguettes are in the split shank.

There are so many gorgeous rings in this thread! Love seeing all the step cuts!
When DH and I were looking for my e-ring, I knew I wanted baguettes going down the sides, and when the jewelers didn’t have what I wanted, they pulled out three stone emerald cut rings with princess cut diamonds going down the sides. They always tried to sell me on they idea that they were all “square” cut diamonds. I was surprised by how many salespeople did not understand that I didn’t want “square” cuts, I wanted all STEP cuts–not the same thing.
When we were looking for my wedding band, the same thing… They didn’t have what I wanted, so of course they tried to switch me to princess cuts… It took some time to get what I really, really wanted, and it was totally worth the effort, because I LOVE my rings!!
I see a lot of beautiful rings with a mix of facetted stones and step cut stones, and they are unique and of course gorgeous. I love looking at them! And they all look perfect on all of you! I think it’s wonderful that there are so many different designs–so many unique and beautiful designs that incorporate the lovely baguette cuts!
I think baguettes are very under-rated–and I’m thrilled we have a thread going devoted to them! Keep them coming ladies!!!!

Love your ring! Its very close to what mine looks like. I’m having a hard time finding a wedding band for mine. Have you gotten yours? Please post picture if you have.

sadly I had to sell this ring, but I wasn’t engaged yet so it was confusing even as a right hand ring. I kept telling people look at what hand its on, but a diamond just makes you think engaged i guess

I had diamonds in one of my wraps on my original engagement ring, I loved them!

Way back at Reply # 20, I said I’d post some pics when I had some decent ones to share (sadly all the ones from the purchase day at the Jewellery Store came out fuzzy)
So here are two from the day we picked up the ring, taken in the car with my hand against the dashboard.
First one gives you and idea of how the wider band looks on my short stubby fingers… and the second one is a close up that shows off the setting and stones.
The middle row of diamonds down the centre is known as a windowpane setting… where the baguettes frame the rounds.
And the close up
PS… As promised I will also post a seperate topic about my Engagement & Ring here on WBee as well (either today or tomorrow, with more pics)

@This Time Round: I see that you were able to come back and post pics of your ring! Yay! Very pretty! 🙂 Thanks so much for posting it. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a windowpane setting before. Sorry that it has taken me so long to come back and comment on it!

@Brielle: I found out the weight of my baguettes! They’re tiny… like .15 each.
