Gem Star Ring

Learn to make this convertible Gem Star Ring. You can make it look like a square-rock gem type of ring, or as a cut-star type of ring.

The ring looks really nice when folded with foil paper. Regular origami paper works well too; the white back-side gives a white band and the colored front-side of the paper will be the color of the star gem. You can even make finger rings out of US dollar bills!

Origami paper rings are fun to make and fun to wear. They are not as serious as a real diamond ring, so it’s a nice way to show you care without the severity of a real diamond ring. Friends can give friendship rings or club rings.
