Sapphire swirlies by timjo Sapphire swirlies by timjo
A silver ring I made for my wife, and also to show off what I've learned during my current work experience period. It features three blue-tinted sapphires (two 1,6mm with bead setting and one 2,1mm with bezel setting) with organic overall shape and granulated edges.

The stones are not actually as blue in real life as they seem to be in the photo. Probably an effect of lighting.

It's beautiful. How did you make the Granulated top?

It's sawed out of thick plate, then soldered to the ring and cut with engravers and the edges are finished with a beading tool.
