Here is a ring in a solitaire style, # 390 of our online design selection catalog. The gem is secured by four prongs in a low open back basket for better light entrance. The band was created with three strands of twisted double wires, a secure and very lightweight design.

We started this project by melting down fine silver and pure copper to create an ingot of 93% silver alloy. Consequentially our alloys are a little on the rich side of .925 Sterling. Copper alone is the remaining 7%. We do not add base metal in our alloy so there is less chance for any allergic reaction.
