This is a gents ring designed around a square gemstone and geometrically reflects the shape. This style of ring is design # 503 in our online design selection catalog and features a short solid basket with an open back and four prongs on the feature gem, all for better light entrance. The head of this design features a large square face with four rays of bead set accents running from the corners of the stone to the corners of the face. The head is slightly elevated above the band and the heavy band tapers sharply towards the rear.


The feature gem is a naturally mined stone that comes from the ground in the country of Ethiopia, a solid and stable Opal that has had no treatments. The base is a pale yellow translucent, near colorless and water-like. It shows no black dots, no cracks, no inclusions that do not move, and no matrix remains, a clean gem. This square shaped cabochon measures 8.7 x 7.8 x 6.2 mm and weighs 2.38 carat. Opals are a rather soft gemstone, about a 5.5-6 on Moh’s scale thus this ring will be best worn on dress occasions only rather than everyday. The dozen accents are 1.9 mm faceted rounds of White Sapphire from Ceylon with mixed clarity of slightly included and eye clean that have had standard heat only and weigh a total of .42 carat together. Opal is the birthstone for October and Sapphire is the birthstone of September.

Metal Content

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.

Our technique

All of our jewelry is made with the old fashioned hand hammered technique. We start by alloying an ingot then proceed with hammering, rolling, filing, sawing, soldering, drilling, sanding and polishing. We do not sell castings and never use glue in our heirloom quality jewelry.

Re-sizing or re-building to another size with the same gemstones is free!

Re-sizing one of our rings can often be done quite easily by hammering and re-polishing when only increasing by a size or so and there will be no noticeable delay in the shipping time. When we need to have the size decreased at all or increased by more than about one size then I have to ask you to be patient as it will need to re-enter the queue and will be ready for shipping in about 30 days. Right after you make the purchase be sure to message me about the new size before I have a chance to ship.

Thailand’s Gem Markets

Being a gemologist in Thailand makes providing you with the right gemstones a snap. Furthermore, the gem markets here are nothing short of amazing! We shop in four different gem districts across the country and the variety is world class. Additionally, a precision gem cutter is working for our operation. Of course, we also source fine gemstone rough with our worldwide network of contacts in the mining business.

Since I love to travel and shop for gemstones, I do act as a buyer’s guide to the gem markets for any visitor that would like assistance. Often I can meet you at a gem market or even pick you up at the airport to get our adventure started.

Custom cut gemstones

An essential part of our service is custom gemstone cutting. You may supply rough stones for us to have precision faceted or cabbed into the shapes that you desire. In addition, many gemstones that are already native cut will be improved in clarity and light return by a new precision cut.

Custom orders on gemstone cutting are normally ready in just two to three weeks. Message me with details of your gemstone requirements. I will provide the address along with special instructions on shipping stones to us.

Please note that we are happy to work with your personal stones but do not have any insurance to protect them. Consequently, the stones will be at your risk only. When we use stones from our store for your custom order we back them for the purchase price. We do not guarantee or insure a stone that we did not sell. That said, it is not common that one breaks or is damaged in setting.
