The standard setting is a cookie-cutter setting purchased from a supply house. While it is USA grade .925 sterling silver, it is not a setting meant for rough wear. It is also not recommended that this band be sized larger than a size 9 due to its frailty.
To address those issues, we created our own custom setting to produce the best-fitting setting possible for our gemstones, along with making a much sturdier ring in coffin-complimentary design that is unique to us. The silver content is both heavier and of much better quality; therefore the setting can last a lifetime with proper care. It will also fit a bit more snugly as the band is twice as thick as a regular band.
We can no longer guarantee the standard setting against wear, bending or breaking. Please keep this in mind when choosing either the standard or custom setting.
