silver and turquoise ring

IMG_0265

This is a custom ring commissioned by some dear friends to commemorate their daughter’s 21st birthday.  The only design restrictions I had were “turquoise, a little bit of gold, not dainty, and size 6.”  It’s to be worn on the first finger.  Here’s what I came up with.

The stone (cut in the 70s, not enhanced or stabilized) is sandwiched between the ring shank and the top plate (oxidized black).  The two pieces are held together with 14k gold rivets.

This is the first I’ve tried this type of setting.  I wasn’t sure it would work, but it came out well.  It was the look I was going for.
