If you are an experienced Jeweller/Goldsmith you may request to learn a few more setting styles, as many as time permits. 

For Jewellers of any skill level, step-by step practical  instruction from a tutor who is a highly experienced trade stonesetter or stonesetting practioner.


You can either bring your own jewellery, samples, castings with cz for stonesetting practice in context to your own work (recommended)  or purchase separately a stonesetting kit (4x Silver rings unfinished castings and CZ’s)  from the tutor if this is preferred. If you choose to purchase a stonesetting kit any unused castings are your to take away for further practice after the course.

Tools / Equipment:   Provided by the tutor, however, you may bring your own hand tools if you wish.

1-Day Stonesetting Tips of the Trade

Private 1:1 Tuition

The  stone setting course was brilliant, the tutor was extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable.  I was able to cover, Pave setting, Cluster setting and Chanel setting to name but a few.


The tutor was was patient, his communication was excellent and nothing was too much trouble for him to help with. 


If I am ever stuck on any jewellery issues, I would contact you for help and I would have no hesitation in recommending my course to anyone wanting to improve their skills.
