This jewelry making tutorial will show you how to make this modern chunky bezel (tube) ring and the gemstone set with four prongs. The heft of this ring require a lot of filing, which can be reduced by preforming the shank in the roller. It is critical to achieve a tight fit of the gemstone in the very solid bezel ring. Before soldering the level and accurate fitting of the bezel should be checked. The setting method is briefly discussed at the end of this tutorial.
