This brightly finished sterling silver ring mounting features a slightly tapered design with a shank that is flattened at the top to support a two-layer, raised platform for the bezel cup—the mounting accommodates one 6 x 4mm oval cabochon. Use jeweler's epoxy to secure the stone in place.
• 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.
