    Well, I finally got my ring back, with the new center stone & rework. Solid shank w/ horseshoe sizer, ribs removed. I still don''t have much time at the moment for PS, so if you are interested in how it looked before, I can try to post links later. Anyway, here are a few photos.

    BTW, I should probably mention that although I''m modeling the ring on my left hand, because it''s easier to take photos w/ my right, it is too big for my size 5 left hand finger. I wear it on my right.

    The diamonds sit higher than they did before.

    Sorry it was already dirty in some of the pictures (like that previous one)!

    what do you think?

    It looks very nice - do you still see the dark spots in the side stones?

    I think the relation of the sidestones - both size and positioning - look very nice with the center stone.

    I think it looks great - are you happy with it? Would love to see some handshots.

    OFG, I think its a huge improvement and is a very pretty ring.
    I''m afraid you still sound a bit turned off though - do you love it hon?

    I think it's a beautiful ring OFG, really. I love the profile, and the side view is much prettier now, imo. I really do think it turned out great. And I'm not just saying that. [​IMG]

    But as others have asked, how do you feel about it?

    I think the reset came out beautifully. The craftsmanship looks very precise and very neat this time. I don''t believe they could have done better job. Did they change the side stone that was bugging you? It all looks very clean and bright now. I like it very much!

    I like how you can see the whole profile of all 5 diamonds from the side in "U" shaped shared prongs, with the prongs on the center stone being doubles that meld together at the tips. The style is similar to a 5-stone band, only with a larger, more prominent diamond in the middle -- in a very pretty setting! Enjoy!

    I love the side view- yummy diamond profile [​IMG] I really think it looks stunning now. Are you pleased? I know how difficult it is not to be overly critical once things have gone wrong.. so I hope you can still enjoy this beauty!

    It turned out beautifully! I love how high the diamonds sit--you can see that gorgeous culet view. The profile is so lovely!

    I think it looks wonderful, too! I am really happy they were able to make corrections that resulted in this much improvement! I hope you can really enjoy the ring now!

    Honestly, I cannot remember what your original setting looked like, but I really do like what you ended up with. My favorite part of your setting has got to be its profile. Being able to view the diamond is a very cool feature thanks to the design of its ''u'' shaped prongs. You mention not having much time for PS these days, but when you have a chance, please post more pictures.
