Making an engagement ring
Discover the process of making an engagement ring through this series of images showing the stages I went through to make a diamond set ring for my good friend John Crooks.
Chopped in two! Platinum is really resistant material its very tough to form having a longer length makes life easier. I can also compare the two sides and this helps keep it symmetrical.
Here is a collet in which the diamond will sit. I bought this in. It is too thick as it is, so I will machine it down on my lathe.
