Twisted Teardrop Ring and Kit Setting made of solid silver with teardrop crown bezel. Does not include ashes as shown in the pictures. These rings must be made using a silicone mould to create a cabochon stone which is then set in place by rubbing over the crown points. We recommend you create at least two cabochon stones for your client and send a proof photo to increase client satisfaction. These rings take up to ten working days to produce and send unless otherwise stated. They are custom made for you to order and as such are not eligible for return/change of mind.
Perfect for use with our 10x7mm teardrop cabochon mould. We recommend you buy a crown teardrop necklace setting 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 (£30 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!)

- Custom made twisted band teardrop ring setting

Teardrop Ring Setting Sizes
These 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 highly recommend that you advise your customer to consider taking away half a UK ring size to their best fit on these comfort fit bands. For example, if they are a UK size L on a normal ring sizer, the might advise them to go for a size K½. We will make whatever size you request but four years’ experience making these bands shows us that extra size is needed because of the extra width.
Comfort Fit for Arthritis/Swollen Joints
Comfort fit bands like this ring are ideal for clients with arthritis and swollen joints etc. 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.
935 Argentium Silver
The silver in these ring bands is 935 Argentium silver, which is 100% recycled. The bands are Argentium silver and we use sterling silver solder paste and solid sterling silver teardrop bezels. Please see our blog on Types of Solid Silver which explains the care instructions for the silver and the metal content. You can advertise these 925 sterling silver but feel free to let clients know the band is 935 anti-tarnish silver.
Treat With Care
Please note, as this ring shank is quite narrow (2.4mm) and the bezel cup quite tall (10mm) the two soldered points are fairly small. This is not an ideal ring for a client prone to knocking it. We recommend you make sure that clients are aware this ring needs to be treated carefully. Should the bezel cup be knocked off accidentally we are more than happy to do a free repair for your client, please contact us to arrange. If your client wants a sturdier ring with a larger soldered surface area we recommend the 10x8mm Twisted Ring Setting or the Hannah Ring. More designs coming soon!
Ring Stock Images
You can order some ring stock images here (these will be added 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!).

Customers may wish to give their rings a quick polish before sending, you can buy a silver 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!
These rings are no longer available in shiny, they will be sent with a satin finish as standard. You can brush this with sandpaper or polish it to a mirror shiny finish as desired.
