I have done 3 rings with cabs 18x25 they came out just right!!!! now can you give an idea of how to adjust the wire for a smaller cab? is there a formula? Thank you!!!!! :0)
02 Aug 2014

Here is a simple formula for the standard Pharaoh ring.

1 1/2 inches between wraps for a 18x25mm cabochon

1 1/4 inches between wraps for a 18x13mm cabochon

How do you convert wire gauge from 14 karat gold to sterling silver? I want to make a pair of earrings, however, the items needed list calls for gold and I want to construct it in silver. Thank You, Julie Haynes
01 Aug 2014

Wire gauge is the thickness of the wire not the carat of the metal. So if directions call for gold or silver both wires will work the same.

Remember, Karat is the finest of the metal such as 14kt or 18kt etc.

Gauge is the thickness of the wire so they don't convert.

I have a couple smaller faceted stones, about 6mm and 7mm that I would like to set following your prong ring guide and video instructions. Are there different measurements for stones this small?
31 Jul 2014

There are different measurements for all different size stones. The prong must fit the stone so look at the stone and adjust your prongs up or down. It is not a perfect science but once you do a few of them you will be able to make prong rings for most any size gemstone and get paid for it.

Not a question, but a tip. Due to Arthritis in my hands, I find it difficult some days to polish my jewelry with a polishing cloth. I use an old pair of white cotton gloves I use to wear to church. After applying a good amount of Red Rouge to the fingers, I find it so much easier to be able to use all my fingers to polish, and my hands don`t cramp up!
30 Jul 2014

Love it great tip! Especially for people that have pain etc in their hands. Thank you!
