Ok so I was looking at helzberg the other day for engagement rings for my girlfriend.. not that I can afford the ones we were looking at.. grin Anyway, I wanted to get an ideas for what she wanted in a ring, I told her that I would assimilate all the facts and build her a beautiful moissy. Ok. Did all that, however while in Helzberg the kind people showed us these wedding bands that are gorgeous. I would just go ahead and save up for it, but I am worried about the color contrast of diamonds and moissanite. this is a picture of the sleeve I want:

Does anyone know how I could go about trying to get something like that either made by someone or if there is a place where I might find a similar item???

I don't know much about these. Why wouldn't you just buy bands?

There are also plenty of custom jewelers out there. My BF and I found one we love here in Oregon. Usually for custom work you don't go to an everyday mall jeweler. Our jeweler is more than happy to set a moissy, asha, cz....... you name it. (I think I am going to go with a moissy.) Working on a custom piece is also nice because you really feel like you were part of the entire ring process. Usually the jewelers keep the person purchasing the custom piece in the loop and that's sounds pretty fun to see it being created.

Are you opposed to just 2 bands? Here is a low profile one I adore. http://www.moissaniteco.com/low-profile-moissanite-shared-prong-eternity-ring-p-10687.html

I've always loved Green Lake Jewelry works in seattle. you design and approve the artists thoughts who makes the item for you. I had two wedding bands one on either side of my engagement ring in my last marriage, it was beautiful and the rings were made to contour to my ring perfectly... just a thought.

I really like the idea of having someone do custom work to try to make something similar. To be honest, I didn't even think of that. I don't even know if I knew I could do that! Thanks people!
