I am a jewellery student and I have some questions I hope someone
could help with. I made a couple of sterling silver rings, I polished
them and gave them to a setter. The stones to be set were an opal,
some cubic zircons and some garnets. When I got them back, the
finish was dull and one of the rings had file marks. They need to be
polished again. My questions are:
Am I supposed to polish the rings before I give them to the
How can I polish the rings once the stones are set? I’m afraid I
will ruin the opal if I use tripoli or rouge.
Thanks beforehand for your advise!
