The three rings are interlocked, and my question is, do they all
link overlapping, or do they link like three links of a chain (i.e.
two ends open)?
The pattern these 3 rings make is called, ‘Russian Wedding Ring’.
According to legend, one ring represents the bride, one the groom, &
the 3rd God, without who’s help no marriage can succeed.
You’re right,each ring goes through the other 2. Close ring 1, insert
the 2nd through it & close, insert ring 3 through rings 1 & 2 &
close. Solder the joints on all 3 so that neither ring attaches to
any other. The soldering sequence can be altered to suit the metals &
solders being used.
Also, I have not set such small stones before (I'm a total
beginner). Those settings look to my uneducated eye like roman
settings (could be bezel too). Any hints/tips on setting 1.5mm
stones like this? They will be diamonds in this ring.
The stone setting appears to be flush setting. It appears that the
top of each ring may have been filed flat in the area where the
stones are set. If this is the case, they were probably filed flat
before any of the other setting steps were done.
