Wholesale Handmade Ring Settings in bulk order quantities with a two week lead time and you are welcome to add your discount code to these prices. Does not include ashes as shown in the pictures. They are custom made for you to order and as such are not eligible for return/change of mind.
Perfect for use with our 8mm round cabochon moulds and our other cabochon and faceted stones here, available wholesale on request. You can order some ring stock images here 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 a compatible necklace setting, for example a small necklace setting (for example) 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 (£25 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!)
Very large quantities may take a little longer, please get in touch if ordering 20 or more and you want to know for certain. Made of solid silver*. We aren’t able to mix and match, so each batch of ten rings must be the same band and bezel cup style; you can choose the sizes though, please let us know. Comes with a free double mould for each item of stock purchased, for example if you order 10qty 10x8mm twist and 25qty 8mm bubble, we’ll send you a double 10x8mm cabochon mould and a double 8mm round cabochon mould for free with your order on request, I recommend you stock up on a few more.
We recommend you buy a small necklace setting to accompany these rings for upselling, and once you’ve made the cabochon stones you can offer to set the other one as a necklace for a small extra charge (£25 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!)

Wholesale Handmade Ring Settings Sizes
These Bulk Order Handmade Ring Settings are available in UK half sizes and US quarter sizes, please let us know in the comments what sizes you need. For example, “Twist 8mm ring sizes K – L1/2 – M – M – M1/2 – N – US7 1/4 – O – P – Z+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 the comfort fit bands (twist and bubble). 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. For 3mm wide band rings we recommend you add a size to the size they measure at. For example, if they are a UK size M on a normal ring sizer, the might advise them to go for a size N for a wide band ring. To help make it easier on Tree of Opals we write the client’s actual size in brackets, followed by the size we’re making, “(M)N” and it’s in our terms and conditions that we do this, plus the product listings. They’re more than welcome to ask for us to still make the ring in a size M but inform them that they will need to take the ring for resizing at a jeweller near them if it’s too small and they will be responsible for the cost. You can easily enlarge a ring up one size with a ring mandrel and rawhide or nylon mallett but we recommend you only do so if confident and avoid the bezel cup (the voice of experience sadly…)
Comfort Fit for Arthritis/Swollen Joints
Comfort fit bands like the twist and bubble 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.
Ring Sizing Tolerance
Sometimes the size a ring measures at can be different on my ring sizing mandrel to yours, it can change depending on which way up the ring is, how hard you press it down and how you read the size. I generally like to have the ring band on the letter itself for twist and bubble bands (as above photo shows), for wide band and chunky rings I like to have the middle or the lowest point of the ring touching the letter. Officially, our terms and conditions say that we have a one UK/half US size tolerance level, meaning that a ring we can provide can be up to one size larger or smaller (half a size for US ring sizes) than requested. Of course we want every ring to be perfect for you though so if you want us to enlarge a ring we’re happy to do it free if you’re not confident doing so yourself. We can’t make them smaller so we’re happy to remake any rings that are too large. This also applies where you have requested the wrong size (your error or your client’s) but we ask you to cover shipping in that situation and lead times apply. International clients may find it cheaper to ask a local jeweller to enlarge rings than cover shipping, but again it’s very easy and I recommend everyone learn in case you need a half size, just enlarge an M to an M1/2 with a couple of gentle taps. Bulk Order Handmade Ring Settings can be resized to one UK or half a US size.
Ring Stock Images
You can order some handmade ring stock images here to show your clients some mockups before they buy (please remember the instructions for use advise you to tell your clients results will vary!). Once you have bought stock images please let us know now and again when you want to download newer items, we will add the product to your “shipped” orders again giving you access to newer images no extra charge.
Solid Silver and Bezel Cups
The silver in these Wholesale Handmade Ring Settings settings is 925 sterling or 935 or 940 anti-tarnish silver, which is 100% recycled. We use sterling silver solder paste. 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 as 925 sterling silver which is the minimum fineness of the band and bezel cup.
Please remember, the larger the bezel cup, the less secure the solder join and more prone to being knocked off! I would recommend a maximum of 10x10mm around but prefer to stick to 8mm where possible. I am more than happy to make any ring style and have oval, teardrop, round and heart bezels in all popular sizes such as 16x12mm, but I am not able to replace them if the client knocks off the bezel cup or the solder comes loose. Crown point settings are very prone to knocking and will need to be well looked-after by customers too.
We are happy to do any of the settings the other orientation, for example I always make oval settings landscape (sideways) because it’s a little more secure, less prone to being knocked off due to a smaller surface area overlapping the band. If you’d like the oval settings in portrait (regular) please let me know in the comments. Always happy to do heart and teardrops landscape too for a special and unique look.
