Country Fair Rings & Sizing

Couple of rings we brought back from Oregon Country Fair, even though we sold them. Both of them are in the filigre style, named for the bits of wire work buttressing the sides of the bezel. One is a fairly bright garnet that’s sort of purple and is cut en cabachon (smooth & rounded.) The other is a really sparkly white sapphire with a facet cut. The setting  charge for this style is around $120 to $150. The garnet is a fairly affordable stone, and didn’t add too much to the price. The sapphire was more.

Sizing. The reason we’re bringing them home is because when we originally made them, it wasn’t in the size required by the eventual customer. As you can imagine, this happens a lot, and we have to be ready, willing and able to deal with it. Sometimes we can stretch them a bit on the spot and the customer can take their piece away with them, but usually we have to bring the ring back to the studio, unset the stone, and make a new setting in the required size. We promise shipment of the sized ring within four weeks. Sometimes there is a $10 shipping charge.

Often we can salvage much of the original metalwork for a new ring.

At the show, or anywhere else in person, we can figure out the size you need, but if you’re ordering remotely, online or by phone or something, then you need to know your size. Gauges are available online or perhaps someone already has one. In a pinch we usually have some available that we can mail fairly inexpensively.
