These contemporary and elegant drop earrings with beautiful blossom pink kaleidoscope faceted stones are perfect for a special occasion. Why not customise the look with different faceted stones of your choice?
To start, place the backset setting face down on a surface. The claws should be pointing up.
Now place the faceted gemstone flat side down into the setting.
Push down each of the metal claws over the back of the stone so that the gemstone is held securely in place. You can use a pair of tweezers, pliers or similar. We recommend pushing opposite claws one after the other to ensure the stone is exactly central.
Your backset is now complete. Simply thread onto the earwire to finish the earring.
Repeat the same steps for the second earring.
