How To Set Gemstones In Wraptite Settings

Wraptite settings are an amazingly easy way to include faceted gemstones into your jewellery designs.

These jewellery settings encase the gemstone around their lightweight shaped wire edge and when tightened hold it securely in place. Thanks to the wraptite settings shape, they can easily be added to any jewellery design!

Step 1

To get started, choose either a pendant wraptite setting or a link wraptite setting. Then ensure you have chosen a faceted gemstone in the same size as your chosen setting.

Step 2

Place the faceted stone into the setting and apply gentle pressure so it fits nicely into the setting. Some stones will fit better than others so occasionally you may need to adjust the setting fractionally.

Step 3

With the tip of your round nose pliers squeeze the bottom of the loop to tighten the setting around the gemstone.

It is important not to over squeeze the loop - a good tip here is to use a piece of wire to keep the main part of the loop open. If your gemstone is slightly smaller than the setting, simply squeeze the setting as described so it fits snugly.

Step 4

Your wraptite setting is now complete and ready for attaching to your jewellery creations!
