I had a 5 stone OEC/OMC anniversary band sitting in my jewelry box unworn for a couple years because it was in bad shape. To say the prongs needed a retipping is a gross understatement! lol I knew I wanted to reset the stones into something sleek and contemporary and therefore contacted Wink Jones to overhaul my ring. Wink was awesome to work with as always. I am thrilled with the way the band turned out, my only regret is not having done it sooner. Not sure if I can post a link but here's a video of my new band. Before and after pictures to follow. As you can see it went from fug to fab! :D

I don't know how to post more than 1 pic at a time so please bear w/me. Let's start w/the before shots of the diamonds in their original setting.

And now for the 'after' shots after Wink & his bench worked their magic :love:

Oops almost forgot stats: 1.56ctw G/Si1

I really like this 1st pic because the reflection looks like the diamonds are sizzling. lol

Thanks for the kind words everyone, I'm really quite happy with the way it turned out. I'd like to make a video of my own sometime this week because my pics do it zero justice. The diamonds are incredibly fiery in person!

Very pretty setting, and those diamonds are so nicely matched. It must be full of fire in person.

Nice work, Wink!
