Why buy Jamming Gems?
Tired of getting mountings with paper thin bands, flashing, pitting and uneven designs? With our Premium Mountings we have greatly reduced the finishing process. We saw a need for quality mountings that didn’t take more time to finish than the item was worth.
Here are some of the features of Jamming Gems mountings.
We use only recycled de-oxidized metals, so your sterling silver won’t tarnish as quickly as your standard 925 sterling will. De-ox will also give you a great smooth polish and has a slightly brighter color to it. Plus, all of our sterling is nickel free.
Our designs are made using CAD (computer aided design), so you won’t end up with uneven prongs or bands. Using our Computer Aided Design (CAD) and resin casting process virtually eliminates shrinkage, so ring sizes will be correct. No wax shrinkage from rubber molds and wax as we don’t use them.
Our main consideration is ease of setting, comfort and durability of the mounting. We are constantly working to design mountings that will not only be comfortable to wear and easier to set, but will last over the years.
While we understand the limitations to pre-notched mountings, we have fine tuned our designs to seat well cut properly proportioned gemstones. Our Competition sells pre-notched mountings where the stone sits very high up on the prongs or the prongs are exceeding long and the stones will not seat properly into a mounting (hard to set). We have worked hard to create mountings that will not only seat easily but look great!
Check out the comparison below of our mountings vs. a leading pre-notched competitor.
In the photo above you can see that the gemstones in the ring on the left sit up very high on the mounting. This puts the gems at risk of damage and loss. One hard blow to the stone and it could easily come loose in the mounting, plus it just doesn’t look very attractive. Now if you look at the ring on the right, you will see that the stones sit lower into the head of the mounting and are seated. This not only allows the stone to be more protected, but it’s much more attractive when wearing.
