This brightly finished sterling silver ring mounting features a tapered design with a shank that creates a defined platform for the round bezel setting—the mounting accommodates one 5mm round cabochon. Place your stone in the bezel cup 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 setting 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.
