Fire Agate and Sterling Ring

This is a fairly simple sterling Ring.

It is a fire agate from Slaughter Mountain.  

I kind of like the offset, and the band is doubled, but with two different gauges.
There seems to be something about setting stones to sort of look like eyes.  Sort of how a car's headlights look like eyes.  Something subconscious.

I didn't get any construction pictures, other than these when I was goofing off.

This close up gives the basic construction:

more pictures including the back:

This is more work and effort than usually go into a sterling ring.  The shank disappears into the back and there is an exposed ring around the outside.
