Mountain ring inlaid with Lapis, Turquoise, and yellow Sapphire

This is my personal ring which I made because I love climbing mountains.

I inlaid the sky area with Sleeping Beauty type blue Turquoise and the wedge shaped area on the left side of the ring is inlaid with a bright blue Afghan Lapis to make the lake area.

The sun is a yellow Sapphire. The Sapphire is not set with a gold tube, instead it was inserted from the back and is held in place with a bezel of turquoise, so to speak, at the top. A piece of gold tubing was inserted into the back of the turquoise to hold the yellow sapphire in place and to allow it to be cleaned from the back.

Inlay ring with a lake area which is inlaid with blue Lapis, a sky area made of Turquoise and a yellow Sapphire for a sun.

At left you can see the finished ring.

This inlay was a challenge because the Turquoise 'sky' area needed to be carefully fit around the gold mountains.
