Orbit Rings utilize tension--actually compression--to hold the 11mm (7/16") stainless steel ball baring in place. The sterling shank is forged closed so that the 18k yellow gold tube that holds the diamond pushes the baring into the gold ring or hoop which is just too small allow the baring to pass through. This dynamic force is what "activates" the ring.  


Except for the stainless ball barings, these rings are entirely fabricated from reclaimed and reused metal--ingots poured and forged in the studio.
