by LLJsmom » May 30, 2018 Based on your pic the girdle of the diamonds are hitting your ering shank. See pics of my 5 stone below. THe metal extends a little further than the diamond’s girdle. (These are 30 pointers. ). So the diamonds don’t bump into neighboring rings. It’s not super pretty for the side. It’s metal. But it’s built like a tank and will last forever.
