Peridot Ring

by John Rasmussen on June 27, 2011

Have been working for a couple weeks on a ring using a large 10 mm round brilliant cut eye clean Peridot stone.  I saw a ring with a stone set between two shanks, so I tried to produce a ring with a similar shape.  First I fashioned a bezel setting for the stone, with a 22 gauge square wire as the shelf to set the stone on.  Then fashioned the shank with a 10 mm wide opening to set the bezel into.  After soldering, pickling and polishing, I set in the stone, then burnished and polished the ring again.  The result was a very unique and beautiful ring.

Now I am making my dear wife a similar ring with a citrine stone.  Click on the thumbnails to see a larger image. Please excuse the poor quality of my photos.
