Adjustable Rings are a great item to have. Whether you are selling or making gifts a ring is always tricky. When selling your customers finger sizes differ so much that you either have to make commissions, ordered to fit or make several rings that all look the same. Gifts are even worse you can wrap up three rings and say hey take whichever fits. If you make it too big the person getting the gift thinks you thought they were bigger and if you make it too small they feel bad because they are bigger. Its a bad place to be.
Not only are they great for differing sizes but also people who have swollen knuckles due to circulation or arthritis issues, it gives the ring more space to get round the knuckle.
This tutorial also demonstrates how to set a small gemstone, the correct way up! Many of these type settings place the flat top of the stone downwards. I will shoe you have to place your stone the right way up and hold it firmly in place without the use of a pre-bought setting.
