This listing is for FIVE slim gold filled claw ring blanks, made in either yellow gold filled or rose gold filled. This is the slimmer version of the other gold-filled claw ring I offer.
These rings is made of high quality gold filled materials. Use these ring blanks to set your own raw stone or other stone to make your own ring!
Ring band is 16g gold filled and the claw prongs are made from your choice of 20g, 18g, or 16g gold filled to help keep your stone securely in place. (20g is thinner, 16g is the thickest of the three options. 20g is easier to bend with the 16g being the most sturdiest)
BE SURE TO INCLUDE RING SIZE(S) AND METAL TYPE IN THE "INSTRUCTIONS TO THE SELLER" IN YOUR CART. Metal type is your choice of yellow gold filled or rose gold filled. All 5 rings must be the same metal type and prong length but can be different ring sizes.
Choose between a plain ring band or hammered ring band. Please leave a note in the "note to seller" section with your choice of plain or hammered ring band. If one isn't specified, the ring will come with a plain ring band.
Prongs can be either 1/4", 1/2", 3/4", 1", 1.25 or 1.5" long. Prong length is measured from the center of the prong setting to the end of the prong.
You can choose between pre-formed prongs or flat prongs!
These rings are handmade by me in my private studio and are made when ordered. They will be polished to a high shine and ready for you to set your own stones!
CLAW SETTING FAQ's
Do these claw settings come with stones? No they don't. These are only the blanks to be used with your own stones.
What types of stones can you use in claw settings? One of the great thing about our claw settings is that you can use a variety of stones in these settings! We've had customers use things like cabochons (flat back stones), raw stones, tumbled rocks, custom-made stones, and even faceted stones!
How do I know what prong length I need? In order to determine the prong length, you will need to know the dimensions of your stone, including the shape of the stone, the diameter, and height of the stone. Example: Round stone 1" diameter,1/4" tall (wall height). Measure from the center of the stone, which gives you a measurement of 1/2". Add the wall height of 1/4", then add a little extra for the prongs to wrap around the top (maybe an extra 1/4" for a stone this size). You would need 1" prongs for a stone this size.
What prong thickness (gauge) should I get? Armored Supply Co offers prongs in three different thicknesses. 20 gauge (.08 mm) great to use with smaller stones. 18 gauge (1 mm) works well for just about any stone! 16 gauge (1.3mm) is recommended for larger stones.
