Different types of stone setting in jewellery:
Our skilled craftspeople have honed their craft over decades, perfecting the art of stone setting to create stunning, one-of-a-kind pieces. With great attention to detail, they employ a range of techniques to ensure each gemstone is securely and elegantly held in place.
Prong Setting: Also known as claw setting, this classic technique involves delicate metal prongs that are expertly positioned to grip the gemstone, allowing maximum light to pass through, holding it securely whilst enhancing its brilliance and natural beauty. This is a very popular form of stone setting and one you will see worn every day. It’s often used for solitaire, or round, brilliant cut, diamond engagement rings.
Bezel Setting: Offering a sleek and modern aesthetic, bezel setting involves surrounding the gemstone with a thin metal band. Our craftspeople meticulously shape the metal to create a custom-fit setting, holding the gemstone firmly in place while providing an elegant frame.
