Daily Wire Jewelry Making Tip
April 19, 2010


I am making my husband a ring using an oval black onyx glass bead and 20 ga sterling silver wire. What kind of pattern is used for making a man’s ring? I found plenty for women, but none for men. Any ideas?


The original Pharaoh’s or Classic Cabochon ring design IS a man’s design! Over the years it has just been adapted for women. You could do an Internet search for a set of instructions to make it, or you could get one of our DVDs with step-by-step instructions. Either way, I am sure your husband will not be disappointed.

    I use the Pharaoh ring design to make men’s rings. The key is to use a large stone about 25mm or larger, so it’s bold, and 20 ga wire. My customers who are men seem to really love the look and my husband has had so many compliments for his onyx ring.
