Ring Shanks

(Grants Pass, Oregon)--Fire Mountain Gems and Beads®, America's Favorite Beading and Jewelry Supply Company®, announces the addition of precious metal designer ring shanks in sterling silver and 14Kt gold-filled.

New precious metal ring shanks can be turned into standard-sized original designer rings using regular jewelry-making and wire-wrapping tools.

Each shank is a 55mm wide strip of sterling silver or 14Kt gold-filled which has been embossed with one of four patterns. Both ends are rounded for comfort and safety, then drilled. Holes are large enough to accept up to 20 gauge wire to rivet or wirewrap both ends of the ring together. When the holes are aligned, the closed shanks will create a ring that is either size 7 or size 8, two of the best-selling ring sizes. Shank patterns include Tapestry, a pattern of flowers and scrolls, Arrowhead, Dots-n-Dash and Hammered.

This selection of precious metal ring shanks gives jewelry makers the freedom to add more personalization to their ring designs without requiring an extensive investment of jeweler's tools or supplies.
