    Default Eternity channel blanks where to buy ?

    Hi, im new here and not even sure if im in the right place.

    I have a small online business and i use ready made blank jewellery to use with resin. I have a popular ring that is a band with a channel around the entire ring but i can only find these rings online in Titanium and stainless steel. I have many requests for 9ct Gold and Sterling silver which is proving to be hard to find blanks in all sizes.
    I buy all my gold and silver from 2 suppliers only.. Cooksongold and Caverswall Mineralls. Cooksongold do have a ring that could be used in gold and silver, its an eternity channel set ring blank but they only have it available in one size. As Im not a jeweller making the blanks myself is out of the question.

    I did buy some silver wedding bands and a friend tried to turn them and add a channel to the rings but it failed and kind of warped and melted the metal.
    Can anyone recommend a supplier that would have similar rings in multiple sizes in gold and silver or recommend anyone that could make them on request without me being required to buy in bulk.

    Thanks in advance Angie

    Option 1 would be to look at someone like Eurofindings to see what their options were; I'd suggest option 2 would be to look at having some resin models printed so that a caster can make moulds of them, then you can have them cast on demand (and many of the casters will do the finishing work too). I can help with option 2 if you need.

    Thanks for your reply, I will look at option 1 to begin, as option 2 is a bit confusing for a novice like me, if you get what I mean ��

    You can import them from Rio Grande, but they would end up about 8 each if you imported ten. Or you might buy two and have them cast here.

    They are in the equivalent of English sizes N and P.

    There are much cheaper ones here, but you need to contact the suppliers to find out more https://www.alibaba.com/product-deta...826494265.html

    Thanks for your reply.... Is it expensive to have rings cast, im not 100% sure what the process is.
    Im used to finding a suitable ring online which has all the popular sizes and adding to cart then checkout.
    Im confused as to why some places only supply one or two sizes...as im not a jeweller i dont really understand..as i would require all the popular adult sizes.
