Trillion Ring Designs
by Dale Armstrong
Question:

I have several 12mm trillion stones that I would like to use somehow. I have searched the internet and books and I have not found any ring designs that use trillion stones. I also cannot find any snap sets that will fit these stones. Any ideas? The only idea I have come up with is to make a standard prong design ring and make one side of the prongs longer than the other. Do you think that would work? Any help would be appreciated.

Answer:

Yes Barb, to make the trillion stones you mention into rings, I would use the prong ring method, making one prong on each end a bit longer (using the formulation in the DVD). As they are 12mm on each side, I would use 22-gauge wire, because when it is folded in half the prongs will not cover too much of the stone. The prongs on the widest point could be made as long as 3mm, while the ones that will go on the more narrow point I would make 2mm long.
