Octagon faceted birthstone stacking ring
The idea behind the birthstone stacking ring sets is to create a stacking set of rings holding the birthstone gems of the special people in your life.
Choose the birthstones of your children; or maybe yourself and a loved one with my stacking 9ct gold stacking heart ring in between. The options are endless. See my gallery page for stacking ring inspiration.
This version of my birthstone stacker holds an octagon faceted birthstone. These are the rectangular looking stones in the stacks shown in the pictures.
A faceted stone is usually flat(ish) on top with a point at the back (in contrast to the flat back of the cabochon stone). This means that the setting for this kind of stone is a little higher - so the silver covers more at the side.
This ring is perfect for stacking with my other birthstone stacking rings as described above, but also looks absolutely lovely on its own.
For most (but not all) of the birthstones you can choose between a 6x4mm or a 7x5mm stone. As this is a longer shape, this looks great with a trillion and a round, or a little square.
The stone is set in silver on a sterling silver (there's an option to go with 9ct gold if you prefer) handmade 2.3 x 1.5mm D-profile band.
Your band will be made to your requested size, but please note if you buy three or more rings to stack you should choose a size 1/2 to one full size bigger to ensure a correct fit.
It's important to get the size correct as unfortunately I am unable to reduce the ring size. But if needs be, I can stretch the ring size slightly by 1/2 or 1 full size.
To make them even more personal I can hand stamp a name or date into your rings. There's some more information about stamping on my blog.
