This tutorial will show you how to balance an asymmetrical ring design adding a modern twist which places  emphasis on the cut and shape of the gemstone. To complete this project you will make bezels and practise delicate soldering tasks. This design is versatile in that the gemstone shapes can be interchanged. Setting does not lie in the scope of this jewelry tutorial.
