Description

Sara Jewlery Design. This sterling silver men's (or women's) ring is bound to garner compliments. It showcases an 18x13mm oval blue agate cabochon of a whopping 9.72 carats. The cab has a subtle yet dramatic variegation in shades of blue, grey, cream and green. The mount features a serrated bezel and a pair of carved hunting eagles adorn the shoulders. Size 9-1/2 to 10.The ring weighs in at 9.939 grams of .925 sterling silver. I began with this designed mount by putting it through a process of vibratory burnishing, which I followed with hand patination using liver of sulfur. Through a series of patinations, I was able to call forth a blue and gold patina in the crevices between the serrated bezel and in the lower relief of the carved design, giving the shoulders and mount an antique appearance. After patination, I reburnished by hand, bringing the shank and high relief of the design back to bright shine. Then it was time to set the cabochon. The serrated bezel protects the stone and gives it lateral stability. Cementation adds an additional degree of hold along the base of the bezel. After setting the stone and crimping the bezel, I hardened the mount and gave it a final hand polishing.It is quite possible to do custom work with this design. It takes about two weeks to acquire the mount and put it through its paces. Plus, I have a large selection of delectable 18x13mm cabochons to choose from that include tiger's eye, turquoise, agates, onyx, jaspers, pretty much anything one might imagine. An unset ring of this design can be sized down in whole or up by about two sizes in either direction (that is from down to an 8 to up to a 12). More than that might cause warping of the bezel and cabochon bed.I will ship this your way the next business day via USPS insured first class mail with a tracking ID number. Want something smaller? Larger? Different? Select customization and let me build something especially for you.My MPIN: RN92518x13BA12052015-02.3864CSara Jewelry Design. Your Desire is Our Design., blue
