I had a 5 stone 1 carat ring that I had received from an ex many years ago. About 9 years ago, I reset the stones into this white gold channel setting with yellow gold bars on the end.



I was feeling that look was dated, I didn''t like wearing it next to any other ring, and I never worn it anymore, so I decided to have the stones reset again, in a truffle style setting. I am having Whiteflash custom make it for me. Here''s their CAD photos:




Apparently Leon has fallen in love with my ring and wants to make it a catalogue item! They are going to use it to make a permanent mold. I will post actual photos of the ring once I get them. The ring should be shipped next week, so once I get it, I''ll post my pix of it too.

Fun to recycle! Glad to see others are doing it too.

Nice recycling job! I''m such a fan of recycling household items, this has inspired me to look in my jewelry box for some inspiration.

Your ring will be gorgeous, can''t wait for hand shots!

It''s going to be gorgeous!! The new design is going to highlight and show off the stones much more, love the trellis design.

Great recycling idea. I think it will look just gorgeous and definitely more updated. I''ve got to look through all my stuff and see what new ideas I can come up with.

I ordered it in a size that I can wear on either hand, so I can wear it as a RHR, or as a wedding band. (I have a lot of rings and like to switch them around in how I wear them.)

Oooo....just got the picture from Whiteflash. Here it is:



I can''t believe how much prettier of a ring the diamonds now have to sit in! It looks so nice and heavy too, which I love! I will get it on Tuesday, so will have hand pix then.
