Our recommended tools for setting gemstones in your jewellery designs.
This stone setting toolkit is great if you’re just starting out in jewellery making. In this kit, we've included our own handy stone setting leaflet as a helpful guide to basic settings and tools.
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.
Use a pusher for pushing claws and bezels over stones during the setting process. It has a square, metal rod which is slightly rounded on the corners and polished on the end to minimise any marks during setting.
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 which have been caused by the setting process.
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.
This is such an essential workshop tool! Use this ring clamp to set rings and other small pieces which are difficult to hold.
