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.

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.

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.

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 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!

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.
