For this design, I first cut out the circular outline of the ring’s base plate from a thick sheet of metal. I hand-filed the edge to give it a smooth look. I measured the stone’s height as well as its perimeter to work on the setting. I sawed out a strip of metal to a length that, snugly, fit around the stone. I molded the exact shape of the stone with the strip and soldered it closed. I, then, soldered the setting onto the ring’s base plate. For the ring shank, I cut out a thick piece of metal wire, according to the desired ring size. I hand-filed both ends of the wire so that they fit, flushly, together and soldered the ring closed. Then, I hammered the ring shank against a steel mandrel in order to shape it, texture it, and bring the ring to the desired size. I soldered the ring and setting together, while assuring that it was centered. I tumbled the piece, for a substantial amount of time, until the perfect amount of strength and additional shine was reached. Finally, I inserted the stone into its setting and, carefully, molded the metal tightly around the stone in order to secure it in place. 

The last photo includes the same ring in a different color (orange), which is also available in my shop.
