Faceting a synthetic stone to fit antique ring

A local jeweler sent us this antique ring which was set with very poorly cut Diamonds and also synthetic green stones.

I used my stock of various types and colors of synthetic materials to find a piece that matched.

Shows the oval antique ring with dark gren stones and one missing.

Antique ring with missing stone

Near the top of the ring you can see the spot where a green stone is missing.

To fit the piece in there, I need to get the curve at the top and the angles on the sides of the stone just right.

Shows the finished stone next to the ring.

The finished stone

You can see the finished stone sitting next to the ring.

The stone is now sitting in the ring where it will be mounted by a jeweler.

The finished stone in the ring

I have set the stone into its place in the ring so that you can see how it will look once it is set. I don't set stones. I leave that part of the stone setters.

The color of the stone looks a bit lighter because the other stones are dirty on the backs.

Another more distant view of the ring.

This is the same view of the ring from just a bit farther away.
