Mother & Child Birthstone Ring: Garnet & Opal

Mother & Child Birthstone Ring: Garnet & Opal

The connection between a mother and child is like no other. This year why not make your mum a unique, simple and striking ring that represents the bond you have by incorporating both of your birthstones. This is also a fun project to combine with you and a friend's birthstone for a sentimental gift idea for a birthday or special occasion.

This Mother and Child birthstone ring is an adjustable style so there is no need to worry about finding out a size!

The ring setting used to make this ring takes two 6mm round cabochon gemstones, we have used garnet which is the birthstone of January and an opal, the birthstone of October.

Step By Step Instructions

1. Choose your two desired 6mm round gemstone cabochons.

2. You may find it easier to hold the ring band in a vice or a clamp to keep it still and leave both of your hands free to apply the glue and gemstones neatly.

3. Firstly make sure the flat base of your cabochon gemstone is nice and clean. Take the ring and make sure that the flat plates are also nice and clean, apply a small amount of Devcon 5 Minute Epoxy Glue onto one of the flat plates of the ring, then place your first stone onto one of the plates making sure is nice and central.

Apply a little pressure to make sure the glue has coated the bottom of the stone and leave it in place until it feels secure. Wipe off any excess glue that may have spilt out with a damp cloth before it dries.

6. Repeat this again for the second gemstone onto the other flat plate then leave this to fully dry before wrapping it up nicely ready for your mum.


Make the design your own by using other gemstone cabochons or another ring setting.
