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.
The piece is then polished, completing the transformation.
