Timeless, Elegant & Beautiful: exceptional quality and value
I have owned this ring since 2011 (1.59 ct center stone in white gold). I absolutely adore this ring. It is beautiful, timeless, elegant and classy. I get compliments on it all the time—to the point where sometimes I am still surprised by them because the ring is no longer new to me, and I am used to it and forget what a gorgeous piece of jewelry I have on my hand.
I don't think it is fair to knock stars off of the rating of this ring just because it doesn't have a matching band. It clearly states in the description that a matching band would have to be custom. When I realized I would not be able to have a matching band with this ring, I was a little disappointed, but quickly got over it, and it in no way detracts from how much I love this ring. When I got married, I simply used this ring as the only ring that went back on my finger. And as another reviewer pointed out, the ring's setting/band is already quite substantial, and I think an additional band would not only make it uncomfortable to and bulky to wear, it would upset the simple, elegant proportions of the solitary piece (which, is pretty much perfect, in my opinion).
All of that said, the only thing I wish I had done differently with this ring is to order it in platinum or palladium (an option that DNL has offered from time to time for certain rings). The white gold is a bit too yellow once the rhodium plating wears down, and I would have preferred to not deal with the ring looking shabby in between plating.
HOWEVER, even that can't remove a star from my rating - I got precisely what I ordered along with the challenges that would come with any white gold piece.
I love, love, love this ring, and DNL's customer service has been stunningly fantastic. In 4 years, I've sent my ring back 3 times for servicing. Each time it has only cost me the shipping and insurance and it came back looking brand new.
And in case you are worried about the number of times it has needed to be serviced: 1) First time was right before my wedding and the plating had started to show the slightly yellow tinge of the white gold, and I wanted it to be perfect in the photos, so sent it back for re-plating. 2) Shortly after I got married, a side stone popped from the setting. This was totally my fault—I got the ring caught under the microwave door (don't ask), and pulling it out popped the stone. So I sent it back for resetting. 3) I somehow managed to visibly get a large scratch on the center stone. No idea how, because this had never happened to my stones in the previous 4 years. So it is currently with DNL for repair.
Their lifetime warranty on their stones in particular is incredible. If I had popped that side stone and lost it and it had been a real diamond, without insurance, I would have just been up a creek...
In search of the band
We got engaged a couple months back and we ar looking for the matching bend, I just read the other comment and was wondering if you have come up with a solution yet, we would be intersted
Diamond Nexus Response: Liana, there is no matching band currently for the Nuance. We do have our Nexus Design Studio that could do a one of a kind band to match and if you would like to discuss that option further you can reach them at 1-877-202-9044. Another option would be trying to pair it with any existing matching bands that we have. If you live near either of our Retail locations we would suggest stopping in and looking at whats available. If you do not, another option would be submitting your request on our Facebook page and seeing what pairs would look best, based on what we might available in our inventory. We look forward to hearing from you either way.
Love the ring, but....
I have had this ring for 3 1/2 years now, and it is very beautiful. Two things that keep it from being 5 stars; first there is no matching band available. I have tried to find one EVERYWHERE, but nothing works because of the 'bump out' that the ring has. I tried using the smaller bands from 'Bonds of Love' ring, but no dice. Second, even if I could find a matching band, this ring already has such a wide band that it would feel and look uncomfortably big. I talked to a DNL representative about 2 years ago to try and have a custom band made. It would fit it snug, be very thin, and have small stones running the top half (see small bands on 'Bonds of Love' ring). She said she couldn't give me an exact price without having my actual ring to build it off of, but the price she estimated was over $900.00. For the price of the 'Nuance' and the custom band, I could easily find a smaller banded ring with an existing matching band.
Overall it is a wonderful ring, but be aware of these two issues before you purchase.
