I've been working on a few designs of different rings lately and I've been trying to establish which is the best "Look". What I'm talking about is the location of the setting i.e. The circle of metal that is holding the stone
In the above picture you see four different rings. From the Left it starts with
Ring 1 = The setting is set into the band.
Ring 2 = The band is cut open and the setting is soldered high between the two ends, if you look carefully you can see the culet (bottom of the stone) between the ends of the band.
Ring 3 = The setting is on top of the band, and small cut under the stone to make room for the culet (the bottom point of the stone)
Ring 4 = This is the crazy overlapping ring that I love, where the setting is so high and way above the band.
So wich one do you like the most...and why??
Under here are some more rings I've worked on on Friday
