Ring in a Ring

 

image

Here is my version of a ring in a ring.

I engraved the top and sides to make it more interesting visually.

image

There is another ring in the outside ring.

image

The inner ring is made out of a 2 mm x solid ring.

image

The inside ring is filed into a 'U' inside shape.

It has a titanium ring that is set with diamonds and is riveted to the inside.

One rivet at the top and two at the bottom.

image

The outer ring has to be pulled quite hard to open it.

Both on the hand.

There are four small diamonds set in the titanium band.

In the center of the band is a gold rivet.

The next one I make the gold rivet will be designed to accommodate a coloured stone for sure.

The inner ring is experimental however.

I wanted to see if a 'U' shape would reflect the heat coloured blue titanium.

Here is the 'U' profile of the inner ring.

Check how the blue of the titanium floods the ring.

A side shot.

This is most effective at a 90º visually.

From a sideways angle the blue disappears.

A sideways angle.

Now there is no blue.

image

The inner band was filed out of a solid piece of titanium strip.

image

Still in the rough stages.

image

After the holes are drilled it is fitted into the U and once everything checks out it is set with the diamonds and then blued in a small oven at about 650C.

image

The cool thing is that because the titanium is below the top of the U sides the U protects it from scratches.

I made a full tutorial of this project .
