Course Description

How to Design a Bezel Setting with Rhino

This course has been specially designed with the assistance of a successful CAD Jeweller to provide CAD Designers with essential techniques and knowledge for designing successful bezel settings.

The course starts by discussing critical design implications for bezel setting, which includes a brief overview of the stone setting process.

You will then make 3 tapered walled settings for the following diamond cut gemstones;

  • Round

  • Princess

  • Pear

These exercises will cover the following important design elements for creating successful bezel settings such as;

  • gemstone positioning

  • setting edges

  • wall thickness/tolerances

  • angles & tapers

  • seats/bearnings

  • designing bezel for diamonds vs. coloured stones​

During the design practise you will be working with the geometry of a gemstone, gaining confidence with step-by-step guidance to ensure your bezel settings will be practical for real-world manufacturing.
