In Metalsmith Essentials: How to Set Fancy Shaped Faceted Stones: Oval, Pear, Marquise and Square, designer goldsmith Ann Cahoon shows how to set fancy-shaped faceted stones in four different shapes: oval, pear/teardrop, marquise and square/princess. Begin by fabricating a bezel shaped precisely to the stone, ensuring a snug fit and the most efficient use of your bezel metal. Next, determine the seat depth within the bezel and cut it evenly while maintaining equal thickness of the bezel walls. Learn Ann’s tricks for accommodating stone points and nuances of asymmetric stones. Finally, set your stone securely and achieve a smooth finish without scratching your stone. Soon, you’ll be setting fancy-shaped faceted stones at your own jewelry bench.
