At some point or another, every jewelry crafter, novice or experienced, considers making a gemstone ring. Many may feel it’s just too daunting a task, and give up on the idea before even getting started — but you don’t have to.
Whether your passion is beading, wire wrapping, or something in between, there is a pattern tutorial to fit just about any skill level and style preference.
HERE ARE JUST A FEW OF THE FABULOUS TUTORIALS YOU CAN FIND
This design by Gailavira Tutorials is a wonderful beginner project. Don't think this qualifies as a gemstone ring? If you use gemstone beads, it sure does. This is a great pattern with infinite design and bead possibilities. Using crystals or gemstones in a sew on type setting would add a whole new range of possibilities.
Another wonderful pattern by designer Gailavira Tutorials, this Mystic Ring tutorial uses cabochons to create a unique gemstone ring in wire.
Another pattern from designer Bobbi Maw at MyWiredImagination, Lesson In Patience Prong Ring Tutorial, uses a very clever technique to help create the classic Solitaire style gemstone ring.
If you’re drawn to bead weaving, check out this gorgeous pattern by designer Ellad2. Though it initially calls for a 14mm crystal rivoli, it could just as easily use a 14mm gemstone.
Another unique pattern by designer Ellad2, this ring, uses both a gemstone cabochon and Czech O Ring beads. This design is easy and works up quickly.
Last but not least is this deceptively easy wire wrap pattern by yours truly 😉. This design initially uses a rhinestone crystal in a sew-on setting, but gemstones can just as easily be used in the settings to create stunning handmade gemstone rings that rival any commercially made rings.
