Stone Setting Tool Kit

Stone Setting Tool Kit

Discover our recommended tools for setting gemstones in your jewellery designs!

This stone setting tool kit is great if you’re just starting out in jewellery making. In this kit, we've also included our own handy stone setting leaflet as a helpful guide to basic settings and tools.

Bezel Rocker

A bezel rocker is used for creating a neat and even result when setting a stone with a bezel. Once the stone is in the bezel, simply use the bezel rocker to push the metal over the stone, working from all sides and gently rocking back and forth with downward pressure until the stone is nice and secure.

Pusher

Use a pusher for pushing claws and bezels over stones during the setting process. It has a square, metal rod that is slightly rounded on the corners and polished on the end to minimise any marks during setting.

Burnisher

A burnisher is used to create a high shine and a professional finish on your jewellery. It can be rubbed over metal to smooth and shine as well as removing marks that have been caused by the setting process.

Stone Setting Pliers

The jaws on these clever pliers are shaped and grooved so that they fit over the prongs on a setting to provide a fast, safe and controlled way to tighten most claw type stone settings.

Ring Clamp

This is such an essential workshop tool! Use this ring clamp to set rings and other small pieces which are difficult to hold.

Shop Gemstones

Don't forget to check out our vast range of cabochons and faceted stones so you can select your favourites to make into beautiful pieces of jewellery.

You can click on any of the products on the shopping list to find out more about the item.
