Silver Jewellery Making: Bezel Stone Setting Technique

View Classes

Learn how to set a stone with our jewellery making courses in Sydney.

In this comprehensive Stone Setting course, you will gain a solid understanding and hands-on experience on how to design and create your own gemstone ring in a bezel setting.

You start by learning to make silver bezels to fit round faceted gemstones.
Once made, find out how to seat the stone into the bezel using the correct burrs in flex shaft handpieces.

Then, prepare the bezel edges and push the metal over the stone neatly and clean up the setting surfaces in a professionally accepted way.

The result? A stunning gemstone ring made by you.
