And there, in my stash, the stone has sat for two years.
With the stress of work and life, I decided a few weeks ago to make a ring with the stone. The only issue was the bottom of the stone is NOT flat. I finally decided to do a stepped bezel that would still be soldered to a flat sheet, so attaching the shank would be easier.
I have not made a ring in 4 years and as a result I created a bit of scrap getting the bezel and step just right. I also had to grind the bezel down a bit since one end it taller than the other.
But who cares I now have the ring!!
Here are two pictures of the stone - you can see how the bottom is rounded. Then some pictures of the stone in the ring before I pushed the bezel in and lastly two of it on my finger with good light so you can see the colors.
