It's been quite the ring rollercoaster this year! I ordered an 11 stone (7 pointers) shared prong ring from ID Jewelry last summer. I got it, the diamonds were sparkly, it fit great, I loved it. But 2 months later, 2 stones were already loose. I sent it back and they tightened it at no charge. I got it back, wore it for 2 months and the same stones came loose again...

I looked at options with Tami and I finally decided to upgrade. I discovered that I could set my stones with 4 prongs instead of shared prong, so I upgraded to a 5 stone with 15 pointers, excellent cut, F-G color, SI clarity.

I received the ring last month and the diamonds are super sparkly and very white. The carat weight is a substantial look on my 3.75 size finger.

So pictures!

That's a gorgeous ring! I love that each diamond has 4 prongs around it so it's much more secure. Do you have any close up shots?

Enjoy your new bling!!

Sorry, I don't have close up shots, that's the best I could do with my camera!

Beautiful! Do you have any up close profile pictures? I'm wondering if they are in open baskets or closed and how high the stones
are sitting. (I'm looking to order a 7 or 9 stone next month from IDJ). I saw that gemgirl also went with a 4 prong setting
and wonder if I should also go that way. I do have a shared prong 5 stone that I have been wearing for 2 years without any problem
though.

Edit - If you take any more pics can you do a profile without the other ring on? Thanks

This is exactly the setting I ordered: http://www.uniquesettings.com/products/show/3463?from_style=1
It says the setting is 4.6mm high. It is closed basket. It's not high at all and is very comfortable to wear, but since you're looking at 7 or 9 stones, I personally wouldn't want that amount of thickness between my fingers.

I don't know how picky you are about your jewelry, but I will say that the prongs are not 100% straight. It's not noticeable if you don't look carefully though. And for the price I paid, I can't complain!

Thanks Orchid...I'm about a size 6.5 (hence the 7 or 9 stone) and I'm trying to get full finger coverage but do want it to set low.
I'm going to take a look around Unique settings to see what they have in 7/9 stone settings.

That is just gorgeous! I think the 4 prong setting makes the stones look bigger (and of course it looks huge on your tiny finger). I love it with the other band. Nicely done.

Your ring is gorgeous and looks terrific with your other diamond band. Very pretty.

Your ring is amazing and it gives you perfect finger coverage :appl: And i totally applaud the choice of the four prong setting. My half eternity band has smaller stones than yours and still my jeweler has made a setting with four prongs on each diamond for super safety. I'm very happy with it and it's great not to have to worry all the time about losing a diamond :))

I did go with a four prong per stone mounting this time because a few women I know who have shared prong rings, have lost stones. I have been lucky in that my seven stone shared prong and five stone shared prong rings seem secure and I haven't lost any stones and none have even come loose, but.... I thought, why press my luck? Go with something more secure. That's why I went with the four prongs besides the fact that it matched the setting on my second e-ring. The baskets are closed on most of I.D.'s band settings. Even their own castings have closed baskets.

Sorry for the mini thread high-jack...gemgirl, do you have a link to your 7 stone shared prong. Just wondering sizes, finger coverage
and how it looks. Thanks

LOL! I know I can be bad :devil: ..... I bought that seven stone while I was waiting for WF to make my custom five stone. I can't help it. Sometimes I get antsy waiting!
