Gemmy stacking rings

I love these stones. They are both doublets – a double-layered cabochon:

The pinkish one is ruby with faceted quartz on top, and the bluish one is onyx. I used some of the techniques I learned in the Rosy Revolver bangle class to make the bands.

I made three rings the same size. The last one is a light blue tourmaline that I haven’t set yet. I wanted them to stack – and technically they do nestle together – but I think next time I will have to work with smaller stones if I want to be able to wear a bunch at once.
