DIY | Rings with semi-precious stones

Created on

fingerringe med halvædelstene

In our new blog article we present  you a little collection of rings with half-drilled semi-precious stones. We have chosen the more unsusual gemstone cuts, teardrops and cube beads, to create rings with a striking and distictive look.

All the ring bases used in this collection are made of steel or gilded steel. The rings’ pegs are longer and stronger than normal ones and can easily hold our bold and eye-catching gemstone beads.

In our earlier blog article Beautiful Rings you can find more inspiration for your own ring designs.

Ring bases in various shapes and different materials can be found under the category finger rings in the Smyks online shop, and in case you prefer round semi-precious beads to cubic and teardrop-shaped ones, please have a look into the category half-drilled stone beads. There you will find a wide range of the more common round gemstones cuts.

These cube beads are drilled through, this is why we use a headpin to close the second hole.

First, cut the ring base’s peg with cutting pliers so that it ends within the cube bead. Then you glue the gemstone on the ring base. After that you cut a piece of the headpin to size and glue it into the bead’s second hole.
