I had left of with the ring assembled, the next steps were to:
- cut out the section of shank below the setting
- file away excess solder and emery
- apply 925 stamp to the shank
- polish and clean
- finally set the stone and tidy up
The finished result, I think the 1.248 carat brazilian fire opal picks up the colouration of the mokume gane perfectly.
This ring will be available later this week in my cube it will be replacing the Spearmint Swirl ring that sold on Friday.
