Once the gold and silver was melted down, it was then rolled out into square wire which could be turned into rings and pressed into a wavy shape. The next process was to create the settings.
The remaining wire was drawn down further into round wire thin enough to create the claws of the settings. I used a jig shown in the photo above to do this.
Once all the rings and claw settings were made I could then solder it all together, hallmark the rings, polish and finally set the diamonds.
I chose not to rhodium plate the white gold as this left a lovely off white variation which complimented the yellow gold and silver with a soft gradient of white to yellow.
I hope you liked my explanation how I made these rings by hand. Please feel free to comment below or follow the social network links below and comment or share there.
