Assemble Your Four Band Puzzle Ring
It's easy with our assembly instructions

I suggest you sit back, relax, and go repeatedly between video(s), animated and written instructions, below.  When you get stuck on one, move on to the next.  In this way, you'll work your way through the instructions and put your four-band puzzle ring together.  With practice, you'll assemble your puzzle ring in under a minute.

In my 10-min. video immediately below, I assemble a four-band marquise diamond puzzle ring.  We think this may be the longest, slowest, step-by-repeated-step, four-band puzzle ring assembly video available today.

The video lower on this page Norm's five minute four-band assembly film. 

Instructions are the same, whether your puzzle ring has stone(s) or not.  Have a cup of tea or a glass of wine, relax and enjoy the process of learning! You'll find the results gratifying and well worth your effort.

Mandira's 10-minute Four-Band Puzzle Ring Video Instructions
See Mandira assemble a four-band puzzle ring with a 1CT marquise diamond.  Instructions are the same for a Norman Greene four-band puzzle ring with or without a gemstone.

Animated and Written Four-Band Puzzle Ring Assembly Instructions

Four-Band Puzzle Ring Animated Assembly Instructions

1. You must start with the band of the puzzle ring marked 'Greene' at the top, and the two hanging down from it must have their tips (shown marked each with a color dot on the animation at left)) pointing away from each other.

2. The band at the bottom is brought toward you and up, like a book being closed. After it is brought up, it is in front of the one marked -Greene-. The band that was brought up from the bottom is turned around. The right side comes toward you, the left side moves away from you. The band turns around like a top turning on its point. After turning it around, this band is placed against the one that is marked, covering up the 'Greene.'

3. The sides, shown with a color dot on the tips, slide through the openings created in what will be the top design of the ring. Each side is slid along to get its tip into the center of the ring. The flat back part of each is outside the ring.

4. The sides are now folded up, one on each side of the ring. The tip of the one closer to you, marked with a red dot, must pass over the tip of the farther one, marked with a grey dot. Check to insure that the tips are passing each other closer tip over farther tip, and when they are all the way up it is done!


Another Video Partially Devoted to Four-Band Puzzle Ring Assembly
Below is a video in which Mandira demonstrates putting together a four-band puzzle ring in the second half. The focus of this video is showing you a particular style of bridal set we make with a puzzle engagement ring and a fitted, custom, shadow band. So the "putting together of the puzzle ring" part of this video is not as detailed as the one above on this page. But we've posted it here in the interest of giving you more data for your decision-making.
