In this jewelry tutorial you will be making a hidden ring in a ring. The outer ring opens up with a hinge. Both rings can be worn separately as shown in the image.

This is an interesting and challenging project to complete. Many techniques like controlled soldering, accurate filing tolerances, hinges, rivets and making a locking catch are applied to make these rings.

This project is suited for the intermediate to advanced level metalsmith. It leaves a large scope for you to add your own style and design elements.
