This sterling silver geometric ring starts as a rounded rectangle shape with an oval cut-out; it is curled into a ring and has a pearl peg mounting set inside the oval at the top of the ring. Set the peg with a button pearl (or half-drilled flat-back stone) up to 6mm dia. Use jeweler’s epoxy to secure the bead or pearl on each peg.
• 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.
