This sterling silver ring mounting features a bypass design with two 4-prong mountings—one on each end of the shank. Each mounting holds one 7 x 5mm faceted stone; one oval and one octagon. Mix and match stone types and/or colors to create a variety of ring choices, or create a custom ring for your customer, allowing them to choose the stones. Cut a seat in each prong to accommodate your stone, then burnish the prong over the stone to secure it in place.
• After setting your stone(s) in this mounting, finish or polish as necessary to complete your ring.
• IMPORTANT: Sterling silver is an alloy containing metals that react with chemicals found in air and produce tarnish; high moisture levels, exposure to sunlight and contaminants such as salt water increase this reaction. Take steps to protect your sterling silver by keeping it in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store metals in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
