Jewellery Craft --- Stone Setting




In our company we work with cubic zirconia, natural gemstones, fresh water pearls, swarovski crystals and diamonds.

Every different kind of stone need different treatment and setting ways. Since crystal and pearls are mostly glue or pin, here we only introduce the setting way for cubic zirconia, gemstones and diamonds.



Big sizes and Alien shapes stones usually work as center stone. For center stones, most setting way in the market will be like below:
