A designer cut cabochon like this deserves a great setting. I laid it with a scalloped bezel over a thick sterling backplate which has been embossed on the edges with a swirly stamped pattern. I used a very thick bail which needed a nice slit to anchor it. this all turned out to be a lovely part of the design.
A substantial piece like this deserved one of my best sterling chains.
