If it's a ring, I polish the inside of the shank and then the outside. If it's a two-sided piece, I polish the back first, since it's not as important as the front. Once I finish the front, I can always sharpen up the back if I have created any scratches. And yes, I have many times.
Here are some additional ways to hold your piece.
A padded envelope works well also.
Until next time have fun claying around!
