The center gem is set with a full bezel, very secure. The accents are flush set. Overall this is a secure mounting but one should avoid wearing any ring while doing hard physical work.
Sapphire has a hardness of 9 on Moh's scale and is famous for being tough, plus with the entire ring being hand hammered and not plated, this one will likely stay great looking a long, long time.
This ring size is a 11½ in the USA, inside diameter of 0.826 inches or 20.98mm, the inside circumference is 2.59 inches or 65.9mm, in the United Kingdom, Ireland Australia and New Zealand it is a size W½, in India, China and Japan it is a size 24, and in Switzerland it is a size 26.
I started this project by melting down fine silver and pure copper to create an ingot of 92.5% alloy of silver. The remaining 7.5% is only copper, no base metal was used for the alloy, less chance for any allergic reaction. The hammering began soon afterwords. This piece is completely hand made, hand crafted, and hand fabricated. It is not a casting, has no plating, no glue and no factory made parts. This style of workmanship is all but lost in today's high tech world due to the high skill level required and the lengthy amount of time it consumes. This old school method that I studied in Thailand is known to be the finest technique in jewelry production and adds greatly to the value and the durability of the jewelry. We stamped the inside 925 as it is Sterling Silver and also hallmarked it LEE, my makers stamp and my personal guarantee of quality.
