I have been setting stones for a little bit and I ordered this amethyst cab and decided to make a ring. Well, not everything works.

This was the first time working with a stone of this shape and did not realize how pointy that one tip is. Everything went really well until time to set the stone.

I tried pushing out and away from the point but just could not get it to lay flat. since I made it with fine silver, I guess I will be keeping this one…such a shame 🙂
