This adjustable sterling silver ring shank features a square pad at the top of the ring, ideal for soldering on any style of setting. One end of the flat shank is free and passes through a channel underneath the pad, allowing you to easily size the ring as needed, from a size 6 up to a size 9.
Ring shanks are ideal for achieving a proper fit with a custom-made mounting for fancy-cut gemstones such as princess or cushion. Solder the setting in place, set your stone, then finish and polish.
• The size of ring shanks is approximate since some adjustment is necessary when adding your setting. All shanks require finishing.
• 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 findings by keeping them in airtight packages, use tarnish-resistant products (such as tarnish tabs or strips) that absorb harmful chemicals, and store sterling findings in a cool, dry place. Most tarnish is easily removed by polishing with a mild abrasive or soaking in an anti-tarnish solution.
