Have just finished my first stone and set it in a blank ring. The cut is mulders box and the stone is cubic zirconia. I was trying for a 7mm square, but the finished stone was about 7.2.
I was quiet happy for my first go, but still have a long way to go.

Cheers guys, still have a long way to go, bu have been happy with how these have come out. Really want to get started with the silver smithing so i can start to make my own pieces.
This is something a bit different, a bit of synthetic ruby and a round cut.
