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.
