A domed ring also referred to as a bulbous ring design fits elegant on the finger accented by the high curvature which runs along and accross the finger to form a high dome.  This forms the basis of many ring designs and allows many variations to flow from there. It is an essential ring for a beginner to master. This bulbous domed design is a modern style that is often requested.  In this jewelry lesson three metal components are needed to complete the project. The twist wire bezel brings the focal point to the gemstone.
