Ancient Kauri and Topaz Ring

Stout Woodworks was recently commissioned by a very kind return customer from Florida to make a special ring.  We had previously handcrafted an Ancient Kauri band for her fiance and two weeks later, she decided to purchase one for herself.  Hers was different in that it was cut with a taper and featured a 5mm white topaz, which she mailed to us.

A recess to match the stone was carefully cut into the ring and the topaz was set using a very tenacious, solvent-free bonding agent.
