Trade Ring made by Silversmith Mitch Lige

           Single Set Rings

Many of the stone set rings found at Ft. Ouiatenon are single set rings.  This ring is a copy of one of the rings found there.  In this example, I have used a "cabochon" of red, man-made sapphire  (cabochon = a smooth surfaced set).  The stone is about 1/4 inch in diameter.  I can make these rings in a wide variety of colors, both faceted and smooth and in sterling silver, brass or 14k yellow gold.
Rings of this type have been found in many sites from Texas to Canada and coast to coast.
