Sapphire and Diamond Ring

I am so incredibly proud of this ring! 

When a very good customer of mine came to ask if I could make a "Princess Diana Ring" I was honestly a little worried.

I have made this type of ring plenty of times when I worked for a fine jeweller in South Africa but I have never attempted to set one like it. So I have done this kind of metal work before but I have never secured the stones to a ring like that. 

I was careful when making it as I knew I would be making my life so much more difficult at the setting stage if I wasn't extremely accurate at the manufacturing stage. It was definitely a challenge but I think it came out so beautifully and my customer was very happy too.
