Rivet Tube Setting

I wanted to create a cold-connection setting for this ring (which I originally intended to be a simple band).

I made a rivet out of thick walled tubing. Once I'd secured the rivet through the band I cut a seat into the tube using setting burs.

I use these
tools from Otto Frei when setting stones in tube settings.

Metaliferous sells thick-walled tubing which is perfect for creating your own tube settings.
