Bezel set ring

Project Description

Who is this project for? Women What are you most proud of? How well the placement of the bezel was. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Bezel wire with a step can be purchased to avoid having to use sheet to create a backing for the stone. Be warned though as I used a thicker sheet on the bezel to accommodate the fact the d wire would be getting soldered to the sides of the bezel. When measuring your finger for the ring, take a strip of paper, wrap around your chosen finger just past your knuckle, mark where the paper just over laps, add the thickness of the d wire and take away length of the stone you will be setting. Don't forget to file the ends of the d wire to give them the shape of the bezel so you get a flush join. Don't forget if you do use bezel wire that it is a higher grade of silver and can be accidentally melted, so please be careful.

What you will need

  • Diopside 4 ray star stone
  • bezel wire
  • d shaped sterling silver wire and some sterling silver sheet.
