Gemstone Jewellery | Stonesetting Styles
The castings list adjacent to the image below will give you an idea of the styles of setting you can learn, it it not fully comprehensive but shows the most common styles.
Bezel / Rub Over style is the most common style for stonesetting beginners to use for setting stones, but Claw and Pave/Grain (not shown) can also be a good place to start.
You may choose the stonesetting style you wish to learn because course content is tailored to suit you and your skill level.
Because everyone's jewellery work is different you may bring your own castings and stones to the course to set. Depending on your chosen tutor you may ask the tutor to supply a castings and stones kit to cover you course needs.
The cost of any stonesetting casting kit with stones is an EXTRA cost to the Stonesetting Course fee because this is based on individual requirements.
Stonesetting Kit - If you would prefer to ask your tutor to supply a stonesetting kit rather than bring your own stones please request a price for each silver casting with accompanying CZ stone.
