All set into custom hand cut scallop bezels. He continues decorating by adding silver leaves that drape slightly over the edges of the stones and also including bird track stamped silver buttons.. The artist finishes decorating by adding decorative stampwork to the cast outer frame of the bolo setting. The artist attaches a BENNETT PAT.PEND. C-31 thumb locking clasp on the back.
