    Hello Everyone!
    I'm currently designing a project (soon to be announced! :P2) that involves a larger cabochon and would love to do claws with it but I need some inspiration photos to show the jeweler as my drawing skills arent up to par. If you could please upload any pictures you guys have saved of rings or pendants that have a cabochon (or your own!) with claws that would be amazing!

    Thank you, Thank you! :kiss2:

    This is a bit over the top, but it’s one if my favorite rings ever. I do not own this (but I wish).

    This ring is mine however, and it has very long claws for keeping a high domed cabochon safe.

    Here are mine. I made them all. Prongs can be a b!tch to make, so I do bezels more frequently. They can be pointy or rounded, whatever moves you!
