Sterling Silver Gallery Wire 18 x 13mm Oval Ring Mountings



Description

This sterling silver split-shank ring mounting features a bezel mounting with walls modeled from decorative gallery wire and holds one 18 x 13mm oval cabochon or other flat-back stone. The inner edges of the split shank are lined with a twist rope design. Use traditional bezel-setting techniques to secure the cabochon in the mounting. Place your stone in the bezel and push the walls inward over the stone, holding it in place. For added security, if desired, place a drop or two of jeweler's epoxy in the cup before placing the stone.

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.
