Sterling Silver Southwestern Flat-End Ring Shank



Description

This sterling silver ring shank is tapered and features a striking Southwestern-style design. Its bold, geometric patterning highlights any style of setting. To enhance the details, oxidize the ring after attaching the mounting. The shank tapers from approximately 16mm to 6.1mm, making it comfortable to wear.

Ring shanks are ideal for achieving a proper fit with a custom-made mounting for fancy-cut gemstones such as princess or cushion. Solder the setting in place, set your stone, then finish and polish.

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.
