Wide Band Ring Setting and Kit with 3mm band made of solid Argentium silver, which is 1% purer than sterling silver. Does not include ashes as shown in the pictures. These rings take up to two weeks 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 8mm round cabochon moulds and our other cabochon and faceted stones here. 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!)
If you’d like to buy this ring as a kit you’ll receive:
- Custom made engravable wide band ring setting
- single cabochon mould (excluding prong and direct pour only bezel cups)

Wide band 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”. You may also like my Chunky Band Ring Settings here.
Please note, we highly recommend that you advise your customer to add a UK ring size to their best fit on these wider bands. For example, if they are a UK size L on a normal ring sizer, the you should advise them to go for a size M. 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.
- These rings are no longer available in brushed, 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, or buy a shiny ring
Solid Silver and Bezel Cups
The silver in these 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.
The wire is 0.7mm thick as standard, which may become thinner if you choose the tree bark or textured finish, sometimes 0.8mm wire is used.
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.
