1. Unpack the loose ring from the wrapping;
2. hold the pendant vertically in one hand and slide with the other hand the pendant-ring with the notch downwards through the groove in the pendant top;
3. in case you feel some resistance, push gently with light pressure the pendant-ring through the pendant groove;
4. tilt the pendant-ring and get a silver chain or your leather string through it. In case you are using your leather string again, untie both slide-knots in the string, thread it through the pendant-ring and make both slide-knots again. Subsequently you will be able to cut the string on your best fitting length. Be careful then not to cut it too short: take into consideration the required length for the slide overlap and for both slide-knots.
