I need to make a two tone gold ring. I am starting with a white gold
band of 6mm in width and want a yellow gold ring in the center of
that band using 18 or 16 gauge square wire. If I make the white gold
band and make the yellow gold wire ring how do I connect the two so
there is no gap when I solder the yellow gold to the white gold band?
I have tried it using silver and copper and always there is a gap
even though I tried to make the band a little undersized and hammer
it up to meet the wire ring on top. Do I sweat solder the yellow gold
wire? I am just at a loss as to how to do this and make it look
Thanks for any suggestions anybody can give me.
