Wraptite settings are an amazingly easy way to include faceted gemstones into your jewellery designs. They encase the gemstones around its edge and when tightened hold it securely in place. Thanks to the wraptite settings shape, they can easily be added to any jewellery design.
Tools Needed: Round Nose Pliers or Similar.
Follow these step by step instructions- with pictures - to set your gemstone in wraptite setting...
Place the faceted stone face down (flat side down) onto a firm surface such as a magazine placed on your work surface, and apply gentle pressure to 'click' the stone into the setting.
With the tip of your round nose pliers squeeze the bottom of the loop to tighten the setting around the gemstone - 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.
