This sterling silver ring mounting features a tapered design with a shank that is flattened at the top to support a two-layer matte-finished, raised platform for the bezel cup—the mounting accommodates one 6 x 4mm oval cabochon. The shank has a bright finish that contrasts nicely with the design at the top of the ring—it creates a two-tone effect. Use jeweler's epoxy to set the stone.
• 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 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.
