Small Silver Plated Square Cabochon Ring

Small Silver Plated Square Cabochon Ring

Item# 85474
Great Looking Ring, September 3, 2011 4 stars
Pros
I have been asked for a wider band and this fills the bill. Looks like sterling! It looks amazing on the hand.
Cons
If you have short fingers, it might be a little too wide.
Other Thoughts
This would be perfect for a man's ring if it went up to size 10 at least.

Not the fastest, July 18, 2011 3 stars
Pros
I love the size, it's perfect size for the pinch bails.
Cons
I found that it takes a lot longer to drill a hole with this bit. I can only drill 3 or 4 before my bill gets too hot to use (I use a Dremel).
Other Thoughts
If I'm really in a pinch, I drill a small hole first with a 1mm bit and then finish it off with this. It is much faster that way.

cabochon space too small, October 16, 2010 1 stars
Pros
They look very cool if you can get the cabs small enough to attach.
Cons
It looks as if the cabochon space would be easy to attach fused glass cabochons, but they are so small it is very challenging to cut the pieces of glass the to the correct size. If they do not exactly fit inside the space, they will eventually fall out.
Other Thoughts
Make the cabs a little bigger or have flat areas to attach the cabs.
