Petoskey Bangle

Petoskey stones are composed of rock and fossilized coral. This Petoskey stone was brought to us by a customer, already polished and ready to be mounted.

A suitable sterling silver bangle was chosen and a back plate was cut from sterling silver to fit the stone.

The back plate was given a bezeled edge to hold the stone.

The plate was then soldered directly to the bangle, horizontally to avoid snagging. The stone was then set in the bezel.
