This sterling silver ring mounting features a rope-detail split shank design, with a rope-edge oval bezel mounting. Detailed leaves and swirls adorn both sides of the open shank. The ring is oxidized to highlight the design details. Set one cabochon in the bezel mounting and push the walls inward over the stone to hold it in place. For added security, if desired, place a drop or two of jeweler's epoxy in the cup before placing 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.
