Finished 14k and Silver Sapphire Ring

All done!

I thought it might be kind of fun to start posting work in progress pictures so that you can see a bit of what goes into making certain pieces. Now to see if I can actually keep it up. :)

This ring is almost finished and needs to go into the pickle to get off the fire scale. I'm setting a pretty Rose Cut Pink Sapphire into a 14k Yellow Gold bezel with a hammered Sterling Silver Band. I plan on adding a bit of oxidation to the band to highlight all of the hammer marks currently hidden in this photo. The ring will be a size 7 when finished.
