How To Set Videos
Below are our setting videos to help you learn to set Pre-notched and snap-tite settings.
Here is a list of tools you will need to set.
1.Setting Pliers can be a good (easy moving) pair of needle nose pliers.
If you're looking for the kind of pliers that are in the setting video Click here
2. I highly recommend a pair of digital calipers (Harbor Tools & Freight) or online at Fox Run Tools
3. Some kind of magnification. (visor, magnifying light etc.)
4. Some kind of sturdy pointed object. An awl etc. (in case you need to adjust a prong)
5. Patience. Take your time. Chances are you will ruin a few settings or gemstones learning.
But if you're good with your hands, you can teach yourself.
A setting class is expensive. You can and probably will destroy settings, but it's a lot less money than a class.
Destroyed settings have scrap value.
We will even buy back your damaged settings you've purchased from us.
Contact us through our contact link at the top of any page for return instructions.
But above all taking your time will minimize your destroyed settings or chipped gemstones.
Always check your gemstone with calipers.
Don't assume because it's written on a bag or gem box, that the stone is the size that is written on it.
