These rings are a big favourite of mine, and a very popular class, come along and make a chunky statement ring flared to hold one or more satellite rings which move freely around, they can be made from another metal for contrast. These rings have so many variations, they can be textured with hammers and punches, they do not have to be so wide if you prefer something more delicate.
