Recently I had a customer approach me about a design element she would like. This element simulates the look of having a stone setting in the ring. Similar to an Engagement Ring. On this ring I made a standard Centered Groove for Inlay, but then made one area that was rounded out to form a bulge. After inlaying the Stone and finishing, it appears that there is a Stone setting as a focal point.
This design could be used with contrasting colors, or could possibly be done with a small gemstone or diamond. I will be playing with this design, to develop it.
Now on to the ring...
It is made from Honduras Rosewood with Crushed Turquoise Inlay and a Simulated Stone setting out of Crushed Turquoise.
