About the name: Cabochon-Ashes
The name Cabochon-Ashes refers to worked gemstones. The word “cabochon” (ka-bo-shon) is both the name of a particular technique for cutting precious and semi-precious stones and a designation for stones cut in this way. Cabochons are stones with a round or convex top without facets and with a flat or slightly concave underside. Because the element on the ring also has this shape, the name was chosen.

How to fill the cabochon yourself.
Hold the cap with the open side upwards. The filling is now placed in the cap after which the bottom is glued on. This is not so difficult but it has to be done carefully. The glue is industrial 2-component glue, suitable to seal the element air- and watertight. The glue is included in the delivery.
This is how you can determine your ring size.
If you already wear a ring regularly.
- Take a ring that fits you well and wear it on the finger where you want to wear your new ring. Preferably a ring that is not much wider or narrower than the parlAmore ring: it is 4mm wide at the inside of the finger and 7.5mm wide at the top.
- Take a ruler with a clear millimetre scale. Place the inside of the ring on top of the 0. Measure the distance from inside to inside at the widest point. This is your ring size.
- Always round up the number of millimetres to the next half millimetre.
This can be useful: Measuring your ring size.
PLEASE NOTE that because the ring is custom made it is not possible to return it.
