This sterling silver component features two bezel mountings joined vertically; the cabochon mountings accommodate one 8 x 6mm oval stone and one 7 x 5mm pear-shaped stone. This component has a closed ring and is ideal for earring and pendant designs, providing many design possibilities—mix or match stone colors or stone types. Use jeweler's epoxy to set a stone in each bezel. Oxidation highlights the design detail.
• 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.
