Gold Filled Wide Ring Setting handmade with a 14k gold filled wire. Learn more about types of gold in my blog here, these are not solid gold! 8mm round or 10x8mm oval gold filled bezel cup. Perfect for direct pour, rubover set stones or glue-in stones! Does not include ashes etc as shown in the pictures. These rings take up to two weeks to produce and send unless otherwise stated because they are custom made in house from scratch by Nikki. Either 3x1mm wire or 4×0.8mm wire.
Perfect for use with our double flatback cabochon moulds – 8mm round or 10x8mm oval. You can order some ring stock images here (coming soon!) to show your clients some mockups before they buy (please remember the instructions for use advise you to tell your clients results will vary!).
We recommend you buy an 8mm small gold filled necklace setting (coming soon) to accompany this ring and once you’ve made the cabochon stones you can offer to set the other one as a necklace for a small extra charge (£40 or so). Around half of your customers will take you up on this (just be sure to tell them you’ll still return the extra stone even if they don’t pay!)

Gold Filled Wide Ring Setting Setting Sizes
These wide band rings are available in UK half sizes and US quarter sizes, please let us know in the comments and choose the size below. For example, if you would like a UK size P1/2 ring, please choose UK P and say in the comments “size P1/2”.
Please note, we recommend that you advise your customer to consider adding a whole UK ring size to their best fit on these wide bands (a half US ring size). For example, if they are a UK size L on a normal ring sizer, the might advise them to go for a size M (a US6 should consider a US6.5). We will make whatever size you request and it depends on your clients’ understanding (you can confuse them sometimes with this, but if you send them a wide band ring in their true size, it’s likely to be too snug). These rings can be stretched up, to make larger, but not reduced, due to the method of manufacture of the wire.
Rings for Arthritis/Swollen Joints
If you’d like us to press the ring into a slight oval shape for clients with arthritis/swollen knuckles please let us know in the comments. We recommend sizing the client’s finger and not the joint, the oval shape will help them get the ring on and because it can then be more true-to-size, it’s less likely to slip. I would recommend a comfort fit band instead like bubble or twist for arthritis and swollen joints instead.
14k Gold Filled Settings
These handmade rings are made of 14k gold filled wire and bezel cups using 9ct or 14ct gold solder. Please see our blog on Types of Gold which explains the care instructions for the gold filled setting and the metal content. You can advertise these as 14k gold filled, 14ct gold-filled etc but please make sure to make it very clear in your title and product description that this setting is not solid gold, it is not marked or hallmarked! Gold filled settings are exempt from hallmarking under UK law, please familiarise yourself with the laws on selling gold filled in your country before purchasing. Unlike gold vermeil (gold plated solid silver), the gold in gold-filled settings is mechanically bonded in a thick layer so is unlikely to wear off or ever need plating. Gold filled is a wonderful budget alternative to solid gold, and is more long lasting than gold vermeil.
Customers may wish to give their rings a quick polish before sending, you can buy a gold polishing cloth from us here. If you have an established business and would like some branded polishing cloths we use this company for our Tree of Opals cloths!
*They are custom made for you to order and as such are not eligible for return/change of mind. However, please contact us if you have ordered the wrong size as we may be able to exchange or advise on resizing (rings can be made a size larger if sent back to us, at your own cost, prior to adding stones or filling).
