There is nothing more frustrating than spending hours on a handmade sterling silver bezel than having the cabochon crack will you are setting it. In retrospect I have no one to blame except myself.
Want to know why?
Because after going back and looking at the original photo of the Amazonite cabochon that I had purchased the darn thing is cracked in the photos!
Hello Kathy Bankston!
In my excitement over the gorgeous colors of this beautiful gem I failed to notice the glaring crack in the lower right hand corner. A seasoned veteran stone setter is surely laughing at me right now! Heck I even laughed at myself when I realized I had not cracked it - that it came that way!
I will have to completely chalk this one up as a true learning mistake!
Currently this ring is gracing my index finger as a constant reminder to slow down and pay attention to details. In the meantime it's still a stunning color and I will truly enjoy it with it's unique crack and all!
