    I don't know why, but there is not enough photos of the profile of rings. From vendors who posted side photos or us who love our hand shot lol. For me, it can make or break a ring. My e ring was named Grace for many reasons, but one foremost reason was because her profile looks like a crown.

    IMG_2423.JPG Your ring is gorgeous, Niel! Love the beautiful gold!

    Here is my profile- an Emilya cathedral. I can't get a crisp picture on my old as dirt phone.

    @Niel - the profile of your ring is stunning, I just love the yellow gold and it does look like a regal crown!

    I wanted to post here because I think the profile of my 5 stone is flowery and pretty and I like catching a glimpse of it from the side angle when Im wearing it

    What a great idea for a thread Niel! You're right, so often the profiles of rings aren't showcased enough, and they're an important feature of the setting. Love the ones posted so far! :love:

    Kind of a bad picture but here's mine. The sidestones came that way but the center basket was based off of one I fell in love with on PS.

    I love profiles and agree they can be under appreciated but they are TDF IMO.

    First up my favorite and first profile photo of Bea. Back in 2013.

    profile.jpeg


    Then a more recent profile just this week.

    Lastly a profile of my newest ring addition. Combo of rose gold and platinum.

    @ecf8503 it's amazing looking at all your settings you can really tell your style. They are all intertwined and twisted. Love it.

    Yeah I guess so - never really thought about it before, but there is a common theme there! Profiles are so, so important -

    My last batch of my CS profile pics. I agree about the importance of profiles. It's what you see so often wearing your rings.

    My ER is a simple 4 prong solitaire setting and I've never taken a profile picture of it. Above is my half eternity and I've always loved the side view.

    My first cluster ring - styled on a Victorian cluster setting. This ring was reproduced with much better quality stones. P4150221s.JPG
