So over the last few weeks I've been making an engagement ring for my sister. No - it's not what you think! Her partner approached me and asked if I would make a ring for him to propose with. This is my first project working with gold in this way but all things considered I think it went fairly well. I was dreading the stone setting but it was actually pretty straight forwards - beginners luck perhaps? What do you guys think?

The ring itself was made from 18 carat white gold and the stone is a pink CZ.

I made a little YouTube video of me making it as well if anyone's interested - please excuse the poor lighting though!
