Once piece Lapis ring with Diamonds set in Lapis

Although it appears to be two separate pieces of Lapis it is actually one piece.

The baguette Diamonds are held in only by bezels of Lapis. A "U" shape channel was carved into the Lapis and grooves were cut into that channel to accommodate the girdles of the diamonds. The Diamonds were inserted from the sides into the U shaped channel.

A dished out area is also carved into the Lapis and three holes are drilled from side to side to accept the three 14kt gold rods.

Once the piece of Lapis was properly fitted into the ring, the diamonds are inserted into the channel and the three gold rods are also inserted in place. The Lapis with the diamonds and rods is then epoxied into place and the top is given a high polish to finish the piece.
