I am still not out of the woods yet, but it is definitely much better now.
The flowers are made of fine silver, the bands/stems are made of sterling silver, and there are Pink Tourmalines (the larger stones) and Rubies (the smaller stones) set in the center of each flower. One flower has tiny granules of sterling silver around the set stone.
I vowed to make my grandmother a ring twice (see Ring No. 144 and Ring No. 264), but fear of not making one that was "good enough" by my standards and lack of time most days prevented me from doing so until now. I am very happy with the ring and I think she would love it if she saw it.
Thanks for reading, Goodnight!
